Biochar guidelines – Good news for Biochar WA

Guidelines for biochar production

The International Biochar Initiative (IBI)  have released their final DRAFT biochar guidelines for biochar production. These guidelines provide a standardized definition of biochar and biochar characteristics related to the use of biochar as a soil amendment.

They will serve as the basis for IBI certification  programs, and are intended for use and adaptation to local conditions and regulations by any nation or region.

These guidelines support not only baseline safety considerations but also the evolving understanding of the positive functions of biochar in soil.
