Putting into practice new biochar applications
On May 2, 2016, Caminos de Agua Executive Director Dylan Terrell installed a biochar system in a rural elementary school in Vergel de Guadalupe. This system deals with a persistent problem in many communities. The local water authorities install chlorination systems to treat water, but community members dislike the taste and then avoid drinking water. This system improves the taste and creates clean, safe water. He learned this technology from Aqueous Solutions in the January Biochar Water Filtration Course that he attended in Thailand. We are excited to bring this technology around to this side of the globe and even more excited to host Aqueous Solutions in July for a week-long course (Special Topics in Water Supply and Treatment for Developing Communities) on the use of biochar in water filtration. Spaces are still available!
