All I have seen is this. Eva Harris's 2011 Master's Thesis - Impact of Biochar Amendment on Nutrient Retention by Riparian Soilsbiocharmer
I have an inquiry from a council scientist in NZ that I'm hoping the biochar community can help me answer... "One question that has me scratching my head istrlah
Thanks Ron. I don't write to the [biochar] lists very often these days, but I do read some of the messages that get sent here... I was also heartened by thelloyd_helferty
This is the home for discussion devoted to turning any form of biomass into char for the purpose of making biochar. This is the place to use words like "pyrolysis", "gasification", and "hydrothermal carbonization" ("HTC"). This list will also be the pre-dominant location of terms such as "energy", "biofuels", and "hybrid systems".
This list encompasses all possible scales of production (from those that exist today for industrial-scale biofuel production involving biomass transport over tens of kilometers, to the smallest possible char-making cooking and heating stoves). Discussion of char-making that is polluting (venting) will generally be discouraged, if flaring is at all possible. The list encourages discussion about all possible geographic areas - and all possible biomass feedstocks, except those that would result in the destruction of primary forests.
