Event organised by The Italian Biochar Association ICHAR

The Italian Biochar Association ICHAR is a non-profit organization founded in 2009 to promote, in synergy between the world of research and the private sector, solutions, technologies, advanced studies, demonstration activities and educational projects on the application of biochar in agriculture as an innovative strategy to increase global soil fertility and mitigate greenhouse gas emissions. ICHAR, based in Florence, involves researchers, professionals, biochar producers, farmers and private companies, public institutions and ordinary citizens. The Association is today the point of reference for biochar at a national level, constantly growing not only in its participation but also in the research, promotion and dissemination initiatives implemented. In 2015 ICHAR obtained legislative recognition of biochar as a soil improver from the Ministry of Agriculture, opening a new phase for the production, marketing and use of biochar in Italian agriculture.
