02. Associated research objectives

The permanency of the elemental aromatic carbon in the trial site will be analysed using tests on the biochar in the soil. Long-term stability will be necessary if the potential for carbon credit generation from these activities is to be realised.

The project will also investigate other potential sources of biochar and will assess feedstock availability in the partner countries. Future scenarios will be examined to determine what will make biochar cost-effective, and financial models will be identified which will allow biochar deployment to be extended within the Asia Pacific region. Competition for feedstocks, and the most efficient use of them, will be investigated, at both the local and regional level.
