ANZBI (Australia New Zealand Biochar Initiative)


The Australian and New Zealand Biochar Initiative Inc. is a collaborative group of growers, scientists, engineers and other stakeholders interested in advancing the understanding and application of viable Biochar systems both small scale and large scale.

What is Biochar?

Biochar is a stable, carbon-rich form of charcoal produced by heating organic residues from plants or animal wastes (biomass) in an oxygen limited environment. Biochar is chemically and biologically much more stable than the organic matter from which it was made.

What are Biochar systems?

The systems that produce and use biochar. This encompasses biomass collection, biochar production and processing, logistics, packaging, and the processes and outcomes of the end-use of the biochar.
