The standard guarantees ecologically sustainable procurement and production of biomass feedstock for biochar production, compliance with emission standards and environmentally safe storage. Biochar quality is comprehensively monitored and documented. All threshold values, corresponding to those of the Ordinance on Soil Protection are complied with. Some of the many applications of certified biochar include its use as soil conditioner, livestock feed additive (EBC-Feed certified biochar), slurry additive, and as an additive to livestock bedding or bio digester feedstocks.
