biochar kiln
Simple biochar kiln

Biochar Kiln Demonstration
February, 2019 - Exact date will be forthcoming - due to the government shutdown, we cannot predict exactly when this may be. 
Location: Moab, Utah

Join us for a biochar kiln demonstration in Grand County, Utah. Tour attendees will observe biochar being made using simple, metal kilns and learn how to safely make biochar at home or on the farm or ranch. This low-tech, low-budget technique can be a useful way to reduce hazardous fuels in forests and create a valuable soil amendment that is a form of direct carbon sequestration. Anyone interested in finding ways to utilize waste wood or improve their soil is especially welcome to attend. We will demonstrate how to make biochar using simple, low-cost kilns* and experts will be on site to answer questions. All are welcome to observe and learn about this technique.

Meet approximately 3 miles down the Potash Road UT-279, between mile markers 11 and 12. Park along road pull-outs or at nearby Jaycee Park Campground.
