02. Making a Difference With Biochar: From the Ground Up (eBook)



This eBook is the second chapter in the book The Biochar Revolution. Through the story of how one entrepreneur was introduced to biochar and its commercial production, this eBook explains some of the financial benefits of biochar, how it can be used to help resolve the global food crisis and also explains how we can adapt one traditional method for making biochar, for modern commercial production.

Karen is the owner of Renewable Carbon Resources Australia, (RCRA) and has been involved in the Australian biochar industry since 2005. Being active for so long in the modern biochar industry, her story really is a great read and inspirational to everyone interested in getting involved in ecologically friendly projects in the real world we live in today.

Here is just one real life fact that Karen shares with us in her writings:

if the 450,000 households in Brisbane used just one 10 kg bag of biochar in their garden, then Brisbane will prevent 2.5 million kilograms of carbon from entering the atmosphere.
