Biochar: Challenges and Opportunities

21julAll DayBiochar: Challenges and Opportunities

Event Details

The Routt County Wildfire Mitigation Council, along with three other organizations, will be hosting an educational workshop titled “Biochar: Challenges and Opportunities” from 12:30-2 p.m. July 21 at the Bud Werner Library in Steamboat Springs.

Turning dead trees into a climate solution may seem backwards, but biochar has the potential to do just that. Wood burned in specialized kilns results in a “biological charcoal”, which has generated excitement among various environmental sectors and provides an opportunity to increase carbon sequestration and reduce wildland fuels. Join the Routt County Wildfire Mitigation Council, Yampa Valley Sustainability Council, Colorado State Forest Service, CSU Extension, and the Society of American Foresters for a discussion on what biochar is, where the current technology stands, what limitations exist, and how this emerging innovation can benefit our community.
