At the next meeting of the Tas North Branch the speaker will be Frank Strie, a German trained Master Forester. He consults on responsible forest and land management, and is a passionate advocate for Pyrolysis Technology. Frank will talk about the opportunity to utilise potentially problem plant material all around us – in backyards, roadsides, railway lines, farms and forests. Slow pyrolysis technology can vary in size from small backyard units to large industrial bio-energy cogeneration facilities. Pyrolysis releases embodied energy for utilisation, leaving a residue, not white ash, but because of the absence of oxygen, a black carbon rich char with unique physical properties. These properties enable many uses, from water purification, to soil improvement, to carbon sequestration. If pressed Frank may even be persuaded to mention Bushfires.
