The AgriChar research group is proud to have hosted another milestone event in the Nordic Biochar research, the 3rd Finnish Biochar Seminar. The event, held on 25 November 2016 in Viikki, Helsinki, brought together 65 participants active in the biochar field in Finland, Sweden and Estonia, and as half of the participants were outside research institutions (from companies and local government), this clearly indicates that biochar has already entered the implementation phase!
The event included nine inspiring oral presentations, five poster presentations, demonstrations of small-scale pyrolysis kilns and uncountable number of unofficial discussions of the latest developments of the biochar world in the Nordic countries.
Thanks for all presenters, below you can find the proceedings of the seminar!
On behalf of the organizing team,
