Guest Speaker: Tom Miles – Executive Director of the US Biochar Initiative

We are very fortunate to have Tom Miles speak at our AGM this year. His talk will focus on where the main gains are presently occurring with biochar in the US, and where he expects gains to be made in the future.

He is the president of T.R. Miles, Technical Consultants, Portland, Oregon, a biomass energy consulting firm, which designs, develops, installs, and commissions systems for processing wood, agricultural, and urban residues.

His knowledge of ash transformations led to the production of biochar to recycling nutrients in soil. He has sponsored and hosted online discussions of biomass energy since 1994 and biochar since 2006. He is past chairman of the International Biochar Initiative and Executive Director of the US Biochar Initiative.
