Barry Batchelor's Summary
I am an expert in biomass carbonisation technologies. I have developed and/or co-developed both large and small scale production systems using a large range of biomass feed stocks. I have publicly spoken at over 30 events on the production, development and use of biochar in New Zealand and Australia. I am now focusing on solutions for small farm scale biochar production using a well refined batch 130 litre high flow gasifier called the Bazman Rumbler.
I am an award winning organic gardener and permaculture designer. I have developed over the last 10 years a 2000m2 100% spray free food forest in poor quality acid sandy loam soils using biochar integrated into advanced organic practices, such as high quality composting, mycorrhizae, trichoderma, remineralising, perennial legumes and high levels of fungi inoculated timber/leaf litter.
The sites soil has now turned from a poor quality light coloured medium into a jet black highly productive soil teeming with life.The long term goal is to produce a soil with characteristics similar to those soils discovered in the Amazon basin which are referred to as Terra preta. Much of the early biochar has now stabilised into a more humic looking medium.
I have also worked with world leading researchers, agronomists, commercial fertiliser/compost businesses, farmers and soil product retailers.
