Plan a biochar storage system for carbon capture and storage

Formats and tools

Unit Description
Reconstruct the unit from the xml and display it as an HTML page.
Assessment Tool
an assessor resource that builds a framework for writing an assessment tool
Assessment Template
generate a spreadsheet for marking this unit in a classroom environment. Put student names in the top row and check them off as they demonstrate competenece for each of the unit's elements and performance criteria.
Assessment Matrix
a slightly different format than the assessment template. A spreadsheet with unit names, elements and performance criteria in separate columns. Put assessment names in column headings to track which performance criteria each one covers. Good for ensuring that you've covered every one of the performance criteria with your assessment instrument (all assessement tools together).
Wiki Markup
mark up the unit in a wiki markup codes, ready to copy and paste into a wiki page. The output will work in most wikis but is designed to work particularly well as a Wikiversity learning project.
Evidence Guide
create an evidence guide for workplace assessment and RPL applicants
Competency Mapping Template
Unit of Competency Mapping – Information for Teachers/Assessors – Information for Learners. A template for developing assessments for a unit, which will help you to create valid, fair and reliable assessments for the unit, ready to give to trainers and students
Observation Checklist
create an observation checklist for workplace assessment and RPL applicants. This is similar to the evidence guide above, but a little shorter and friendlier on your printer. You will also need to create a seperate Assessor Marking Guide for guidelines on gathering evidence and a list of key points for each activity observed using the unit's range statement, required skills and evidence required (see the unit's html page for details)

Self Assessment Survey
A form for students to assess thier current skill levels against each of the unit's performance criteria. Cut and paste into a web document or print and distribute in hard copy.
Moodle Outcomes
Create a csv file of the unit's performance criteria to import into a moodle course as outcomes, ready to associate with each of your assignments. Here's a quick 'how to' for importing these into moodle 2.x

Reference books for 'Plan a biochar storage system for carbon capture and storage' on This online store has a huge range of books, pretty reasonable prices, free delivery in Australia *and* they give a small commission to for every purchase, so go nuts :)

Elements and Performance Criteria



1. Assess bio-char carbon storage system feasibility

1.1. Applicable Occupational Health and Safety (OHS), environmental, legislative and organisational requirements relevant to planning a bio-char system for carbon capture and storage are identified and followed

1.2. Research into bio-char carbon storage systems is undertaken

1.3. Organisational need for a bio-char carbon storage system is explored

1.4. Context for the bio-char carbon storage system is investigated and clarified through consultation with users

1.5. User requirements are identified and documented

1.6. Environmental parameters are identified

1.7. Bio-char carbon storage system options are investigated and installation, operation and maintenance requirements are identified

1.8. Recommendations from the feasibility study are formulated

2. Determine facility requirements

2.1. Feed stock for the bio-char process is selected

2.2. Amount of feed stock that can be obtained for pyrolysis is calculated

2.3. Method of pyrolysis is selected based on feed stock and appropriate outputs

2.4. Cost of transportation of liquid and solid by-products is estimated

2.5. Amount of material to be processed is assessed

2.6. Ability to feed into the power grid is considered

2.7. Process conditions are determined

3. Design a bio-char carbon storage facility

3.1. Facility is designed to provide optimal conditions for carbon storage

3.2. Legal requirements or government regulations impacting on the proposed facility are identified and addressed

3.3. Design specification is documented and relevant information is communicated through plans, standard operating practice (SOP) manuals, records or reports

3.4. Overall operation and output of the proposed facility is reviewed to ensure that it meets the long-term directions and purposes of the organisation and is economically sustainable

4. Plan implementation of bio-char carbon storage facility

4.1. Construction plan is developed according to accepted design principles, organisational requirements and commissioning or start-up SOP

4.2. Work team's knowledge and skills are evaluated against the construction plan and works schedules, and the requirement for external expertise is determined and obtained

4.3. Material, resource and supply provision requirements are determined and documented from work plans, schedules and design specifications

4.4. Labour requirements are estimated based on work plans and schedules

4.5. Operating expense budget is determined indicating all input and output costs applicable to the proposed facility
