News & Events
The USBI Advisory Board has developed a set of Biochar Sustainability Protocols that promote the health of people and the planet as the process creates value.
This symposium is designed for farmers, foresters, researchers, policy makers, biochar producers and entrepreneurs, and especially students and citizens who want to learn about biochar as an alternative to fossil fuel-based fertilizers/pesticides and energy.
USBI has arranged with the Helena (MT) National Forest to plant up to 2000 trees in the Cave Gulch-Maudlow Tosten Fire Rehabilitation area. Depending on the variety they plant (ponderosa pine, douglas fir, lodge pole pine or spruce) this could cover five to ten acres.
