This study is as an empirical contribution to the underdeveloped literature on deployment of negative emissions technologies in least-developed countries (LDCs) in general and on biochar use in developing countries and LDCs specifically.
This article presents a review of information related to the broad uses of biochar products, while discussing the legal aspects and quality standards applicable to biochar use in the European Union.
This paper examines the role that government policy can play in accelerating production and use of biochar at commercial scale in the United States.
This paper summarizes the efforts on biochar standardization which have been carried out by voluntary products standards and illustrates the existing legislation in EU member states, which apply to the production and use of biochar.
This book chapter addresses the known potential risks from biochar production and use and the regulations and legislation applicable to biochar in selected European countries.
This article addresses the legal issues of biochar from a European (Flemish) point of view and provides a general insight in what potential legal constraints the development of a biochar industry might face and what opportunities lie ahead.
This paper proposes the improvement of existing and the creation of new compost markets based on the integration of biochar and the implementation of obligatory recycling targets with flexible implementation approaches.
This paper proposes that a sustainability framework for biochar could be adapted from existing frameworks developed for bioenergy.
Opportunities and Constraints for Biochar Technology in Australian Agriculture: Looking Beyond Carbon Sequestration
This paper highlights that for biochar technology to be cost-effective and successful, Australia needs to look beyond carbon sequestration and explore other opportunities to value-add to biochar.
This paper reviews existing scientific evidence from a European policy perspective and identifies research gaps for future comprehensive assessments of the policy, environmental, economic, and health implications of the systematic use of biochar.
