IBI June Newsletter

Some SEA news within...

I can also advise the Biomass-SP have tentative plans to support some biochar industry capacity building in Malaysia. More about that as things develop (but if you are interested in participating or supporting this initiative, then please get in touch).

The dark side of the green economy: 'Green grabbing'

I draw your attention to this article. For me, it provides a good perspective on some of the issues that need to be considered in our rush toward 'green' resource utilisation. It does mention biochar is a derogatory way (and I'm sure the Carbonscape reference is poorly researched and referenced) but it is certainly more balanced and without the BS coming from Biofuel Watch.

These are big issues that the biochar community can't solve. Maybe international agreements and regulation are part of the solution along with solving political corruption in the developing world (easy huh).
