Ennstal organic farmers calculate carbon footprints

Chairman sees great opportunities in the biochar sector

More than 60 member farms of Biolandwirtschaft Ennstal are already actively participating in an Austria-wide pilot project for calculating carbon footprints in agriculture.

With the help of the "World-Climate Farm Tool" from Switzerland, farms can determine their current status and identify suitable measures for improvement.

Georg Gerharter, Chairman of the Ennstal Organic Farming Association, is one of three Austrian representatives on the Board of Directors of the EASY CERT group, the company behind the tool. Mr Gerharter was also part of a delegation that recently attended the North American Biochar Conference in Sacramento (California, USA). More than 600 experts met there to discuss past and future developments in biochar.

Gerharter summarises his impressions: "The production of biochar opens up enormous potential for curbing global warming. This technology improves the carbon footprint and is particularly promising for use in agriculture, but also for industrial projects."
