IRSI is very excited to have been accepted for an oral presentation on the second day of the US Biochar Initiative’s fifth conference. The event, as outlined in their title, is aimed at connecting the academic and the corporate spheres looking for environmental solutions utilizing applications for Biochar in a wide range of areas. Recent reports over the last year have indicated that the Biochar market is going to grow at an approximate rate of 18% over the next five years. IRSI believes that the litany of applications for Biochar will only increase in number as more and more industry players begin to explore and work with Biochar in a variety of scenarios. This eventuality is the direct result of increased production of Biochar, spear headed by systems like the Ulysses. Through IRSI’s demonstration project in Drayton Valley, Alberta, beginning in the next 6 weeks, IRSI will soon be the largest single producer of Biochar in Canada. Very exciting developments to come and IRSI is keen to explore the state of the Biochar market and its key players during this event in August.

The event will be held at the beautiful Oregon State University campus in Corvallis, Oregon from August 22nd to 25th. Please click on the image below for a link to the details for the event.
