This is the home for discussion devoted to regulatory, economic and social factors that are integral to biochar production and use. This will be the place to use words such as "carbon offsets", "renewable energy credits", "de-forestation", "indigenous land rights", "sustainability", and "return on investment".
This list will encompass all possible geographic areas and political divisions from communities and villages to nation states and international agreements. Finance, development, biodiversity and employment are all issues that may impact or be impacted by biochar production and use. This is the place to discuss those issues. We anticipate this website to be active in developing future certification standards for Biochar.
You are encouraged to visit the related Yahoo Groups Biochar (basic information), Biochar in Soils, and Biochar Production. As well as our Biochar Web site: http://biochar.bioenergylists.org/
Note: This "Biochar-policy" list is not a place to debate theories about the causes of climate change or global warming. There are other lists dedicated to that. In this list we start by agreeing that biochar can store some amount of CO2 in a stable way. This is primarily a place to discuss the integration of biochar technology with policies to mitigate climate change.
