Environmental Laboratory
,
WOLLONGBAR  NSW  2477

The kiln used was the project 540 Rising Phoenix
The char stock used was Camphor Laurel and Bamboo
The Charmaster was Rameshwar.

Biochar Project Australia (www.biocharproject.org) and Biochar Industries (www.biocharindustries.com) are committed to making biochar a household word. We are the doer’s in this world of talker’s.
