Certification of a biochar product is valid for one year from the time of issue of the formal notification. Certification lapses at the end of the period unless renewed in accordance with the procedures in the IBI Certification Program Manual.
The products listed below are currently certified by the IBI. No producer or manufacturer whose name and/or company logo, does not appear below, has a valid claim to IBI certification for any biochar product.
All Power Labs
All Power Labs is the global leader in small-scale gasification. We make biomass gasifier generators that are ready for everyday work, to serve real-world distributed-energy needs.
Our Power Pallet and Chartainer are a new category of energy device. They combine the best usability features of diesel generators, with the clean running of typical renewables, with the potential for a carbon-negative impact through the transformation of waste biomass into power, heat and biochar.
Our project started in 2008 with the open-source Gasifier Experimenter’s Kit (GEK), supporting research, education and DIY hacking in biomass thermal conversion. Over a decade later, the GEK has evolved into the Power Pallet, a full solution for commercial power generation via biomass. Today you can find our systems at work in dozens of countries around the world, and supporting research in over 50 universities.
American Biochar Company
American Biochar Company markets NAKED Char an activated Biochar produced by fast pyrolysis at temperatures ranging from 550C – 900C and is made from 100% Southern Yellow Pine species (including long leaf, loblolly, short leaf & pond pine).
- Low Ash, Close to Neutral pH, Moisture Stabilized, High Porosity
Bioforcetech Corporation (OurCarbon)
OurCarbon is a high-impact biochar product produced by Bioforcetech, a California based technology producer. Their mission supports the use of underutilized waste streams to capture the value of these materials, multiplying the biochar’s ancillary environmental impact.
Bluefield Renewable Energy (BRE)
In Singapore, Bluefield biochar will be marketed by Liteleaf Pte. Ltd. using their product brand Little Red Farm.
enviraPAC Monticello, LLC
enviraPAC Monticello produces high quality, high fixed carbon biochar from local, SFI sourced pine wood chips in South East Arkansas and is backed up by a certified ISO9001 Quality Management System.
enviraCharTM is offered in both 5×35 Mesh Granular and Powder forms, available as small as 10 microns (d90), and has both low ash and very low moisture.
Glanris makes a hybrid water filtration media from rice hulls.
Oregon Biochar Solutions
Oregon Biochar Solutions manufactures high carbon, low ash biochar. It is suitable for the creation of biochar-based soil amendment products, water filtration and environmental remediation applications. Oregon Biochar Solutions manufacturers biochar at industrial volume, and can produce up to 50,000 cubic yards per year. Carbon Credits generated from the production of the biochar can be purchased from puro.earth.
V-Grid Energy Systems, Inc
VGRID is a clean energy company that uses its high temp gasification bioserver technology to convert local waste streams of biomass into clean energy, Persist™ Biochar, and Persist™ PAF which is a liquid plant growth enhancer.
- The Persist™ Biochar production process is able to generate approximately 3x Carbon Removal Credits (CORCs) per ton of biochar produced and is available to be purchased from puro.earth (Each CORC represents one ton of CO2 removed from the atmosphere).
- Persist™ Biochar can be ordered to custom size and comes standard in the following particle sizes – Whole Shell (unrefined), Large Granular (+10, +2000 µm), Standard (10×18, 1000-2000 µm), Fine (18×70, 210-1000 µm), Ultra Fine (-70, -210 µm). [bullet]Persist™ Biochar has a high porosity (>300 m2/g) and purity (+90% fixed carbon content).
