There have been many studies on the benefits of producing biochar (black carbon) from organic wastes. Incorporating biochar into soils provides numerous environmental and financial benefits,which this paper examines. Nevertheless, there is no policy yet to apply biochar at farm level in Australia. This article discusses nine critical factors that need to be considered for maximising the environmental and financial farm benefits from the use of biochar.
