Check out the podcast interview I did recently on biochar company Re:Char. Apologies for the background noise.
Re:char is the brainchild of Jason Aramburu, a recent Princeton University graduate and now self-styled biochar entrepreneur and researcher.
Formerly the chief technology developer and co-founder of Ecovolve Energy, a manufacturer of small-scale biomass pyrolysis systems, he launched re:char earlier this year with the mission of raising awareness of biochar and promoting the use of distributed energy, particularly in developing countries.
Biochar, which is produced by heating biomass in the absence of oxygen, has gained a lot of traction in recent months because of its carbon sequestration potential. Aramburu and his team recently demonstrated a prototype mobile pyrolyzer that is capable of processing around 800 kilograms of wood chips and sawdust a day into biochar and liquid fuel oil.
