We are excited to announce that the District-sponsored Biochar Production GHG Offset Protocol has been accepted into the CAPCOA GHG Rx following CAPCOA Board approval on September 28, 2015. The protocol will provide a local cost effective option for CEQA mitigation, and significant air quality co-benefits through reducing open pile burning and managing hazardous forest fuel load. The Protocol can be found here.
