Hello everyone, I am a Technology Education student at Southern Cross University, and I am conducting a small research project investigating biomass pyrolysis as a future technology for Australian agriculture, as a carbon-negative source of useful chemicals, fuels and soil fertility improver. During my perusal of the literature, I discovered this forum and my hope is that people here may give me some insight into the issues at hand. The questions I am currently attempting to answer relate to the best scale and general feasibility of the technology in terms of sustainability. I have read about scales of production ranging from small metal drums in backyard gardens, to large industrial plants requiring extensive transport and providing highly controlled products. Which is most appropriate for agricultural areas in countries like Australia? Also, I would like to know what barriers are in place to prevent the widespread adoption of this technology. Are the required systems accessible to potential adopters? Is further development or incentives needed? Ideally, I would like to correspond with individuals or groups who actively use this technology. If anyone would be prepared to answer a few questions about their activities via email, please let me know. Any insight or comments would be much appreciated. Thanks, Leon Close.
