Towards a characterisation standard

Towards a characterisation standard

Currently, there are no peer-reviewed, internationally-accepted standards for characterising biochar used for carbon storage despite considerable efforts by the International Biochar Initiative (IBI), especially in the field of biochar for agricultural applications. This project will bring new data on production and process conditions which can be incorporated into models. In contrast to existing work on biochar, this new network brings together expertise in processes for continuous production of biochar, both for fast and slow pyrolysis and their modelling aspects.
