What does a biochar expert consultant do? Biochar is the carbonaceous material produced by combustion of biomass. Biochar is a stable solid, rich in carbon, and can endure in soil for thousands of years. It can be considered a method of sequestering carbon and has been shown to improve crop yields. It can also be substituted for coal to aid in meeting renewable fuel mandates.
A biochar expert consultant is someone who has a significant background in this area, through education and/or experience.
