    The material used for the production of biochar has to be very clearly and specifically by all the world nations before discussing about the utility of biochar for any pupose. No nation can afford to use forests for the production of biochar since this resource is less than one third of the total global terrain. It is needless to state that burning of pland and animal residues would deprive food of microbes and macrobes which are actively involved in supporting plant,animal and human life on earth. What right any body has to deny them the basic necessity for their survival. These need a thorough discussion with a sense of conern.

      The choice of feedstock is very important to ensure that biochar is sustainably produced and also is environmentally beneficial. This topic will be discussed at the online workshop.

  3. Dr G. Syamasundar Reddy Says:

    Deliberate burning of forest wood or plant material may be denied. But some times, we need to burn some thing like diseased plant debris, thorny bushes, etc.. What I mean to say is where ever it is essential to burn some plant material, it can be effectly converted into biochar and put to use as emphesized.
