TheSonoma Biochar Initiative Sonoma Biochar Initiative (SBI) in partnership with the Sonoma Ecology Center have been selected by United States Biochar Initiative (USBI) to host the

2012 US Biochar Conference

in Sonoma County

from July 29 to August 1, 2012.

USBI director Gloria Flora notified the Sonoma organization of the Advisory Board selection. Sonoma was selected for its practical, enterprising focus on Biochar opportunities, the abundance of agricultural partners in the region and the County’s national standing as a leader in addressing climate change.

2012 US Biochar Conference is designed to advance our understanding of the economic, science and policy issues related to biochar as both an amendment for soils as well as agent for carbon sequestration. California’s reputation for progressive policy and venture capital resources provide an excellent setting for showcasing new innovative technologies like biochar.

The 2012 conference will bring together growers, entrepreneurs, investors, scientists, policymakers, policy analysts, engineers, producers, users, and students on the topic of biochar. SBI will publish the schedule and program in Spring 2012. SBI expects the Conference to attract as many as 400 attendees from North America and International destinations.
