Demonstration of biochar production in Muñovela

On May 12, a technical field day of the Life Regenerate project took place at Muñovela Farm in Salamanca. Members of Volterra team held an educational session with farm owners as part of the event, to discuss, among other topics, the multiple benefits of biochar in agriculture.

Participants were instructed on biochar production process and could see an on-site demonstration of it. The Kon-Tiki oven used for the demonstration was left on the farm so that those interested can produce their own biochar whenever they want.

A very productive day of exchange that helps to disseminate in the community of farmers the advantages of this form of charcoal in the management of agricultural systems, among which the contribution to the circularity of economy stands out by giving value to the pruning remains that would otherwise would be useless waste.
