Conference Programme




The theme for the third Australia New Zealand Biochar Conference (ANZBC19) is “mainstreaming biochar”. With the science in on the benefits of adding biochar to soil, animal feed, water filtration, building and road materials from various feedstocks for carbon sequestration value, it’s time to see the commercialisation of biochar in Australia & New Zealand.

Last year we saw that a number of large scale projects are now getting off the ground with thousands of tonnes of biochar being produced at low cost per annum. There will be 10 x 30 minute plenary sessions & 40 x 20 minute concurrent sessions available under the following topic areas;

(i) biochar for soil, plants and trees

(ii) biochar for animal feed

(iii) biochar for building materials

(iv) biochar for road materials

(v) biochar for water filtration & soil remediation
