OFA provides comments to Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) expressing support for Western University’s proposal Understanding the potential and implications of biochar/biocarbon-based negative emission technologies. OFA views this research as very important for the agri-food sector to better manage carbon sequestration and reduce organic runoff into our watersheds. This project will create a sustainable pathway to not only prevent carbon emissions from farm sources but also generate value added products that can be used in carbon capture and sequestration. OFA, along with other commodity organizations representing greenhouse and field crop producers support current research conducted by Dr. Berruti at the Institute for Chemicals and Fuels from Alternative Resources (ICFAR) research institute within the Faculty of Engineering at Western University. OFA is optimistic that this research will lead to improved economic and environmental opportunities for rural and farm communities throughout Canada.
