Since 2009, the UK Biochar Research Centre (UKBRC) has led strategic, multidisciplinary investigations of biochar:

  • Biochar production and analysis of energy rich co-products

  • The diverse potential applications of biochar; particularly as a beneficial soil amendment, as well as other uses

  • The feasible development of Pyrolysis-Biochar systems and Life Cycle Assessments for sustainable resource management.

Since 2017, I am PhD student at the UK Biochar Research Centre as a Marie-Curie Early Stage Researcher within the Green Carbon project.

My work is focused on the development of sequential biochar systems, enabling biochar to be recycled and applied in sequential scenarios. Therewith, biochar can use its full potential and provide multiple benefits to our climate.

If you are interested in my research please visit my sites on LinkedIn, Researchgate or just write me an email c.wurzer@ed.ac.uk
