This form is for applicants who are applying to renew their IBI certification for another 12-month period. If your biochar product has not previously been approved for IBI biochar certification, please click here.

Please note: If your IBI Certified™ biochar has undergone a material change, it must be re-certified at the time that the material change occurs. Material change is defined as changes in feedstock type or thermochemical production parameters of greater than 10%.
