Ecotecture Participates in 2012 US Biochar Conference
Ecotecture is pleased to announce that our editor, Philip S. Wenz, has been invited to participate in the 2012 US Biochar Conference as a journalist and a pre-conference publicist. The Conference, sponsored by the Sonoma Biochar Initiative, will be held from July 29 through August 1, on the campus of Sonoma State University, located one hour north of San Francisco in California’s wine country.
Ecotecture supports the use of biochar for sequestering atmospheric CO2, and as a means of closing production/waste loops in the agricultural and forest-product industries. Biochar’s multiple uses and adaptability as appropriate technology for both developed and developing nations make it an important tool for the regeneration of the ecosphere.
The 2012 US Biochar Conference will emphasize practical applications of this rapidly emerging technology and will bring together specialists in forestry and agroecology, garden and industrial-scale biochar production, biofuels, biochar policy and entrepreneurial opportunities.
The conference will be an excellent venue for environmental problem solvers who want to learn more about biochar and network with others who are working in the field. Ecotecture will keep its readers informed of developments as the Conference’s speakers and topics lists take shape.
