The Australian Biomass and Bioenergy Assessment (ABBA), aims to catalyse investment in the renewable energy sector through the provision of detailed information about biomass resources across Australia, to assist in project development and decision making for new bioenergy projects, and provide linkages between biomass supply, through the supply chain, to the end user. The project is collecting, on a state-by-state basis, data on the location, volumes and availability of biomass, for inclusion on the Australian Renewable Energy Mapping Infrastructure (AREMI) platform. Data is available to view now at Funded by the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA).

The Environmental Analysis Laboratory (EAL) is part of Southern Cross University (SCU) located at the Lismore campus. Operating since 1993, EAL provides quality analytical services to a range of research and commercial entities, specialising in environmental, agricultural and contaminant testing.EAL provides world-standard work in the shortest possible time frame, at commercially competitive prices. Full confidentiality and security are provided for all analytical work.

Tweed Shire Council’s Sustainable Agriculture Program provides a wide range of services to local primary producers, hobby farmers and rural landholders to help them enhance their natural resources in order to improve farm productivity, viability and environmental sustainability. The Program is a proud sponsor of the ANZBC17 and looks forward to sharing ideas on how biochar can be used to improve farming in the Tweed. For more information on how the Program can help you and your farm, contact the Program Leader on 02 66702400
Green Man Char Biochar is perfect for general gardening and agricultural needs. It is a fine-grained (up to 0.3 cm) char product that conditions the soil and enhances the soil’s chemical and physical properties. Derived from a woody biomass resource, the biochar has a very high fixed carbon content up to 90% – basically it is pure carbon in a structural form perfect for soils. We make the biochar and other pyrolysis products such as wood vinegar with our clean and efficient CharMaker technology. A local and clean green waste biomass source is used as feedstock that would otherwise be land filled, and hence Green Man Char products are sustainable

Microbiology Laboratories Australia provides world-class commercial microbiology analyses for agriculture, forestry and the environment. It is a subsidiary of the microbiology consultancy company Creation Innovation Agriculture and Forestry (CIAAF), which was formed in 2007 with the aim of empowering farmers, agronomists, natural resource managers, fertiliser manufacturers and Government to make informed decisions about the use and management of microbiology in soil, water, compost, fertilisers and other media.

The Biochar for Sustainable Soils (B4SS) project is funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and UNEP; coordinated by Starfish Initiatives in Australia; and conducted by important local partners in China, Ethiopia, Indonesia, Kenya, Peru and Vietnam. The main objective of the B4SS is to demonstrate and promote the adoption of Sustainable Land Management (SLM) practices involving biochar. This work is particularly related to identifying optimal formulations of biochar, and evaluating their agronomic and environmental effects. The project has a focus on field demonstrations, training and extension activities, intended to share new knowledge on using biochar for SLM with farmers, researchers and natural resource managers around the world.

Olsson’s Livestock Nutrition Olsson’s 1st salt block was produced in 1949 in a shed just west of Parramatta. It was the first pressed salt block produced in Australia to contain a range of minerals and was the forerunner of all the multi-nutrient blocks produced in Australia from that time onwards. Ever since, Olsson’s have been at the forefront of ruminant technology and education of the grazier about the latest break-throughs in this field. That has never been more true than today. Olsson’s continue to support the research and development of ruminant nutrition through University tests and field trials.

The Australian Recycled Organics Association Limited works on behalf of its members to raise awareness of the benefits of recycling organic resources. It aims to act as an advocate for the wider organics resource recovery and beneficial reuse industries and to represent their views in a constructive dialogue with policy makers. The Association envisages an industry in which best practice is shared, standards are maintained and surpassed, and which makes a positive contribution to safeguarding the environment.  Our vision optimizes the recycling and beneficial reuse of all surplus organic material into cost effective and beneficial soil amendments.

NEXT GENERATION CHARCOAL PRODUCTION – The Exeter Retort designed in the UK known as  The Carboniser is an easy to use, efficient, mobile charcoal production system which makes quality charcoal in a fraction of the time taken by traditional kilns. It transforms trees, branches, wood cuttings, and biomass into high-quality organic lump charcoal. The Carboniser is environmentally friendly and releases 75% fewer pollutants to the atmosphere than ring kilns. Designed for the 1 person Owner Operator in mind. Most importantly, it can be used to create Biochar – a soil enhancing material which has been proven to increase crop yields.

NutriSoil is a complete fertiliser full of plant available macro and micro nutrients that feeds your plant, your microbes and assists to protect your plant from pests and diseases.NutriSoil enhances the natural growing mechanisms of the plant and soil through increasing photosynthesis, feeding microbial communities and growing larger root systems. Plants grown in a healthy soil with a diverse microbial community can cope better with changes and stress, such as extreme heat, drought, flood, frost and chemical use. NutriSoil contains high levels of nutrient blends from organic animal, plant and ocean sources with crushed minerals, seaweed, fish,  lime, rock phosphate, and other natural nutrients that compost worms and other soil organisms consume and convert to a plant available plant food.

 RCRA is one of Australia’s leading charcoal manufacturers with a dedication to progressing the understanding and practical uses of charcoal in agriculture, horticulture and animal husbandry.  RCRA reclaims previously pulled Gidyea Acacia timber in South Western Qld, converting it into an organic certified carbon capture holding valuable micro nutrients for both livestock dietary needs and the development of functional soils with a long term future. Royalties paid to the landholders create economic benefit and diversification, empowering stakeholders to survive and thrive in an environment often desiccated by drought .  RCRA embraces scientific research as most recently as a feedlot trial using dietary charcoal in partnership with Alex Sparkes of  Hornet Bank feedlot, Professor Stephen Joseph and Lukas Van Swieten, principle research scientist Dept Primary Industries.
