Biochar is the product of thermal carbonisation of plant biomass. In addition to the well-known applications in agriculture – often inspired by terra preta – biochar also has a wide range of potential uses in communities and cities.
The conference “Biochar in a municipal context” organised by Fachverband Pflanzenkohle e.V. would like to present these opportunities in a compact form. We have already been able to win the following speakers:
- Bjorn Embrén (Stockholm): “The Stockholm biochar project and planting urban trees on biochar”
- Bruno Glaser (University of Halle-Wittenberg): N.N.
- Nikolaus Foidl: “Umwandlung von biologischen Abfällen und Gärresten in recycelbare Wertstoffe am Beispiel von Klärschlamm” (“Conversion of biological waste and fermentation residues into recyclable materials using sewage sludge as an example”)
- N.N. (University of Stuttgart / Ökoservice GmbH): “Pflanzenkohle in Kleinkläranlagen” (“Biochar in small sewage treatment plants”)
