Researchers test prototype with global potential in Jackson Demonstration State Forest
11/3/21 — Scientists and engineers around the world are trying to figure out ways to mitigate future climate risks. Many have been rushing to develop technologies that reduce carbon emissions, and one prototype being tested in Jackson Demonstration State Forest could have major implications for reducing global air pollution in the future.
Listen to Kevin Kung, co-founder of startup Takachar, talk about the prototype for a small-scale, low-cost portable system that can turn slash and agricultural waste, such as rice husks and coconut shells, and turn it into products like biochar, biofuels and chemicals.
