Biochar consulting

We provide consultancy services to villages and development regions, to development aid and government agencies. We create new agronomy based value chains and biochar based products to help open new markets for rural development. We advise policy makers on sustainable, climate positive and organic farming.

For forest gardening and food security

  • Design of advanced farmer made organic fertilizers
  • Organic nutrient recycling and biochar production
  • Design and set-up of forest gardens with high biodiversity and food diversity
  • Balancing of nutrient and biomass production
  • Tree nurseries
  • Calculation and certification of carbon sequestration in agriculture and forestry
  • Linking forest gardens to the market for carbon credits
  • Creation of forest garden value chains (essential oils, silk, pharmaceuticals, spicies etc.)

For biochar producers

  • Developing and producing special biochars from special feedstocks and blends
  • Biochar Characterization
  • Certification – for producers seeking certification under the European Biochar Certificate
  • Optimization of production parameters, post-production treatment, and contaminent reduction
  • Cascading Uses – develop customized cascading use scenarios which provide both environmental & economic value to biomass producers.

For biomass producers

(e.g. farmers, foresters, landscapers, food processors, communities, colleges, etc.)

  • Level I: Biomass Review - discuss underutilized biomass for biochar potential including quantity, quality, yield potential, local needs & marketing potential [up to 3 hours]
  • Level II: Carbonization Assessment – convert biomass into biochar, perform characterization & interpret results (clients may desire multiple iterations under different production parameters)
  • Level III: Product Design – identify different carbonized products which could be created using the producer's specific biomass; develop & test products 


Closed Loop Biochar Production & Modeling

  • Level I: Biomass Review - discuss underutilized biomass for biochar potential including quantity, quality, yield potential
  • Level II: Eco-System Review –eco-system assessment; identify & prioritize areas for biochar and other by-product uses within eco-system
  • Level III: Closed Loop Design - design optimized production model for carbonizing biomass and utilizing all by-products within producer's eco-system including identification of potential thermochemical conversion technology and post production needs.
  • Additional options: Cost Benefit Assessment, Local/Regional Market Assessment
