Australian scientists recognised at Mullum Bio-charfest
BIG HIT: John Sanderson from Earth Systems shows off some biochar at Mullumbimby’s Bio-charfest at the weekend.Luke Mortimer
THE internationally-recognised innovation of Australian eco-scientists and researchers was highlighted at Mullumbimby’s Bio-charfest at the weekend.
Industry experts on environmental issues offered presentations on topics ranging from biochar manufacture to hemp production, carbon farming and even 3D printed housing.
The well-attended festival also ramped up local interest in what’s thought to be a world-first technology – the Charmaker Mobile Pyrolysis Plant, from Earth Systems.
Created by decomposing organic material at high temperatures in a process called pyrolysis, biochar benefits soil quality and farm yields, can be used to produce energy, acts as a carbon emissions sink and can be used as a building material, among a variety of other uses.
