2013 North American Biochar Symposium–Early Bird Registration Extended to August 31, 2013

There couldn’t be a more exciting time to join your colleagues for a North American conference on biochar. Over the past six years, growers, scientists, engineers and entrepreneurs worldwide have experienced the remarkable properties and benefits of using biochar as a soil conditioner, as a medium for ecosystem restoration, as an agent for wastewater remediation, and even as a food additive to enhance livestock nutrition. The event will be held October 13 – 16 at the University of Massachusetts located in Amherst, MA, USA.

Registration is now open for this event at: www.symposium2013.pvbiochar.org/register.

  • Ignite Talks – Monday night presentations by experts in the biochar field
  • Exhibit tables
  • Poster Presentations & Book Signings
  • A Biochar Banquet with food stations that will feature local produce grown in biochar conditioned soil, as well as a variety of meats and adult beverages enhanced by biochar
