Moab Biochar Demonstration 2019

Background: Fourteen people attended the biochar workshop in in Grand County, Utah on March 13, 2019. Attendees learned how to make biochar using simple, low-tech and low-budget metal kilns. Making biochar using this technique reduces hazardous fuels in forests and creates a valuable soil amendment that is a form of direct carbon sequestration. Another added benefit is the reduction of traditional pile burning which has negative consequences for soilhealth.
