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”)
