Join us at the CCE Public Square as a distinguished panel will discuss biochar and an upcoming Pizza for the Planet event that will produce it!
This discussion examines biochar–a charcoal-like substance made from burning organic material (also known as ‘biomass’) a safe and controlled process called pyrolysis. During pyrolysis, organic materials, such as used pizza boxes, are burned in a container with little oxygen. The organic material is then converted into biochar–a very stable form of carbon–almost none of which is released into the atmosphere. The heat created during pyrolysis can then be captured and used as a form of clean energy.
