This project aims to demonstrate the worth of unwanted/unutilised agricultural biomass (rushes, gorse, bracken, hazel, forest harvest residue) as a valuable resource to produce biochar through a life cycle approach to current farm vegetative control/ management practices, and to also make direct use of this biochar product to sustain an innovative bioeconomy on and off the farm as well as providing further downstream ecosystem services.
