WSAA recently ran a biochar seminar with water utilities, policy makers and regulators from across Australia and New Zealand, and can now provide the key insights from that session.
Biochar is a carbon-rich material that is produced by burning organic waste in a low-oxygen environment. It has numerous benefits from reuse, including improving soil health, increasing crop yields, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Our biochar seminar dived deeper into the policy, regulatory and market challenges and opportunities behind this technology and its potential to revolutionise agriculture, land management and carbon sequestration practices. WSAA intends to continue to work with utilities, policy makers, regulators, and the biochar sector to address key challenges and help utilities scale up the role of biochar in creating a more sustainable future.
