Scuola di Biochar 2022

School of Biochar 2022

The Italian Biochar Association ICHAR is pleased to announce the 6th edition of our Biochar School.

Biochar is increasingly becoming the leading player on the international scene. As many of you now know, the applications of biochar are no longer just related to the agronomic field but range from composites (polymers, cements, asphalts) to water purification, batteries, and the creation of carbon credits.
Never before will our school be looking far, far ahead to new and unexpected horizons
