Ladies and Gentlemen,
Introducing Australia’s first Adam retort Biochar Kiln….it is nearly complete
after today’s huge effort by the Biochar Industries team Kunghur NSW.
Update from our previous post Adam Retort . We did a colossal day on the tools today resulting in a big boost for our morale.
To make the occasion even more special Biochar Expert Dr Paul Taylor PhD was on hand to break this amazing news.
“This is the first Adam Retort in Australia and it will be the first commercial Adam retort in the western world” Said Dr Paul Taylor PhD Author and Editor of the Book The Biochar Revolution. This statement had Charmaster Dolph Cooke falling off his chair.
“I knew I was working hard to get the Biochar Industries and education centre up and running but I never realised I was creating history at the same time”
Dr Paul Taylor Phd is the sole licensee for the Adam retort Biochar kilns in Australia. He used his research skills to improve on the award winning design and has spent six month’s on this project. The result is a bigger, leaner and stronger model that will outlast the hardiest Charmaster : )
Here are a few pictures of today’s efforts and I would like to take this opportunity to wholeheartedly thank those quiet achievers on my team who have helped me get further than I had imagined and who will be by my side for a long time to come. I thank you.
