Eastern WV Community and Technical College Announces the Appalachian Biochar Summit on August 13

Eastern WV Community and Technical College is proud to announce the Eastern Biochar Summit. This summit brings together biochar experts to identify opportunities to increase biochar commercialization and infuse biochar in green infrastructure projects as well as in wood and poultry waste.

This event will look at a number of best practices for application of biochars in green infrastructure and identify ways to increase the adoption and use of biochar by an array of industries.

“Biochars represent a significant regional business, workforce and new business development opportunity, said Joe Kapp, entrepreneur-in-residence at Eastern WV Community and Technical College. “Biochar can help address many environmental and energy issues including carbon sequestration, mine water runoff, healthy soil composition and more.”

According to the International Biochar Initiative, biochar is the “practice of converting agricultural waste in a soil enhancer that can hold carbon, boost food security, and increase soil biodiversity.”
