SLCM is helping reduce pollution, generate jobs and support the community with one key ingredient – bio char. Similar to charcoal, bio char is made by burning organic material from agricultural waste which safely stores carbon that can’t easily escape into the atmosphere, helping mitigate climate change. SLCM has partnered with the Warm Heart Foundation to purchase ovens and employ two local youth teams to collectively produce 50 tonnes of bio char. SLCM then donates the bio char to local farmers to use as fertiliser.
GM Gabriele Lombardo said: “Forest fires significantly raise Chiang Mai’s air pollution levels, so we hope more villagers start to see bio char as a viable alternative to burning. They can earn more money by converting husks and stalks into bio char which doesn’t emit PM2.5 particles into the air. Cleaner air leads to better health conditions for the community and in turn more tourists visiting the city."
