Project Profiles are monthly articles in the IBI newsletter that highlight those working in biochar around the world. Please note that the inclusion of a project does not mean that IBI endorses the methods or results. All projects are strictly submissions to IBI.

Biochar Project Registration: Help IBI Help You!

Are you starting a biochar production company? Are you a researcher looking for funding? Are you a teacher wanting to network with other schools doing biochar science projects? Are you a philanthropist or investor looking for interesting projects? The IBI Project Registry is for you!

IBI staff members get requests for information and help every day. Being in at the center of this information flow has allowed us to help a number of projects get connected to resources and partners, like the National Geographic funding opportunity. Help us connect your project to others by letting us know about your work and your needs. We invite you to fill out the IBI Biochar Project Registration form online:

Additionally, regional biochar groups may be operating or forming in your area--these groups focus on specific issues on a local or regional level. To look for upcoming meetings or conferences, see the IBI Calendar.
