Title: Reaping Unsown Rewards from Biochar

Imagine a way to provide farmers, forestry and agricultural companies, and local business with low cost, greener energy in rural areas while improving their carbon foot print. In Cape Breton we are all too well aware of the impact utilization and over implementation of fossil fuels have on our community and environment. Fuel from biomass should become a significant part our energy supply. MacQuarrie’s research program investigates higher value use of biochar providing incentive for moving towards a more sustainable model for energy production.
