Please join the National Academies for a special public session to explore opportunities to connect wildland fire fuel reduction with biochar production and use, and their potential ecosystem benefits. Speakers will discuss several key themes, including:

  • Quantitative estimates of the volume of new wood biomass generated by forest restoration initiatives
  • Options for utilization of noncommercial wood biomass; carbon profiles and implications
  • Current and potential utilization and markets for biochar
  • Status and trends in US wood biochar production: case studies
  • Biochar and CDR credits
  • Research needs
  • Policy implications

This meeting will be held in a virtual setting and will be live-streamed on the event webpage on October 4th, 2023 from 11 am- 2:30 pm ET. The recording will also be available to view after the event concludes.
