The Canadian Biochar Initiative promotes biochar as a sustainable vehicle to sequester carbon, improve soil fertility, and enhance food security by advancing the research, development, deployment, investment and commercialization of biochar in Canada.

We are helping Canada become a world leader in all aspects of biochar including research, production processes, product and quality standards, end-product applications, and market acceptance.

Our strategy is to:
  • Facilitate research into all aspects of biochar
  • Focus on areas that sequester carbon, minimize climate change, improve soil fertility, and enhance food security
  • Ensure biochar applications are sustainable and have a carbon-negative full life-cycle
  • Expand the knowledge-base on all aspects of biochar
  • Disseminate knowledge about biochar to stakeholders via the web, newsletters, conferences, networking, and related activities
  • Encourage regional biochar associations across Canada to assist in these efforts.

Please note that as a new organization, we are in the process of updating our website, and welcome your feedback.
