These activities are currently supported by a jointly supervised PhD student, two significant grant proposals for DFID funding and support of The Royal Society. These shared resources will facilitate the development of the Centre, assisting with development of laboratory assessment methodologies, troubleshooting obstacles in development of new pyrolysis technologies, and monitoring / reviewing implementation from the perspective of social issues.
The activities centre on the following areas:
- assessment of biochar properties and application methods;
- methods to match feedstock to technology and product characteristics, and
- socio-economic evaluation.
