The Australia New Zealand Biochar Researchers Network and the Japanese Biochar Initiative are pleased to announce the first Asia Pacific Biochar Conference to be held this year at the Gold Coast. The conference will include speakers from the Asia Pacific region on the latest scientific research and business opportunities for development of the biochar industry.

Biochar is defined as the stable carbon-rich product that results from heating biomass materials (such as municipal green waste, poultry litter, forestry and agricultural residues) in limited oxygen charcoal created by pyrolysis of biomass.
