Join our Biochar Webinar Series

In October 2020, we launched an ongoing webinar series on various biochar-related topics. We have one webinar every other month and each session consists of a presentation and the possibility to ask questions and discuss. The webinars are free of charge and open to everyone, but sign-up is required. Below, you find information about our next webinar, including a link to sign-up. We record our webinars, so you can watch them again or share them with others. All of our previous webinars are available on this page.

Biochar in Urban Green Spaces

Ann-Mari Fransson (SLU), October 23, 2020

Our first webinar gave insight into the project “Rest till Bäst”. The project considers the entire chain from feedstock, biochar production and applications. Three different feedstocks have been tested in a full scale pyrolysis plant. Biochar have been tested in different urban applications like urban tree plantation, green roofs, storm-water systems and green walls. Preliminary results will be shown. Biochar is currently used in urban tree plantations and Blue, Green, Gray solutions and the Swedish market is growing.

Ann-Mari Fransson is an associate professor at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU), where she focusses on sustainable urban vegetation.
