Visit to B4SS partners in Oslo (March 2017)
Following the launch of the Stockholm Biochar Project pyrolysis pilot plant, Ruy went to Oslo and gave a lecture on carbon offsetting, footprinting and biochar at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences. The next day, he presented the Biochar for Sustainable (B4SS) project to staff at the Norwegian Geotechnical Institute (NGI). In an organisation, sometimes the only person that knows about a project is the main project leader (in this case Prof Gerard Cornelissen who is coordinating the B4SS project in Indonesia), and so it was a good opportunity for NGI’s director and colleagues to understand more about the global B4SS project. Thanks to Erlend Sørmo, Gerard Cornelissen and Jan Mulder for their active support and warm hospitality!!
