Can’t wait to fire her up (I mean the Adam retort :P) but I guess that will be another post. Peter, Koby and I graffiti-ed the new cement we just made like kids in a lolly shop we couldn’t wait to sign our names.

Koby was on assignment creating a documentary about biochar and had an idea she would video me. All was going great until I tried to recount my dream of a biochar Industry and the link I share with Geoff Moxam. I got all emotional. Every time I think about helping the earth and mankind I get so passionate I loose my composure. I am glad only Koby saw me cry I’m sure the boys would of hassled the heck out of me.

Thank You wonderful team and thank you Universe you are providing me with everything I have ever wanted in such a magical way.

  1. What is Biochar, and what is a biochar kiln?

  2. Biochar is simply charcoal made for use in agriculture. And a Biochar Kiln is an efficient way of making biochar. When we talk about efficiency we also include environmentally friendly as well.

    Hope this helps

  3. Well done fella, looking good …….. the Adams Retort obviously :)

  4. I would like to build an Adam retort here on my plantation in Vanuatu. We have several km of casuarina wind breaks which need constant pruning. We currently make charcoal in a pit, most of which is sold in nearby Port Vila, where it is a poular household fuel for cooking. We also add the fines to our gardens. I have contacted Chris Adam, but I think it would be much more practical to build a retort under Paul’s licence and with your assistance, if that is suitable to you.
