University of Edinburgh, UK Biochar Research Centre
The UK Biochar Research Centre (UKBRC) is based at the University of Edinburgh, School of GeoSciences, on the science campus at King's Buildings.

We are undertaking disciplinary and interdisciplinary research on:
- Biochar production and analysis of energy rich co-products
- The diverse potential applications of biochar; particularly as a beneficial soil amendment, as well as other uses
- The feasible development of Pyrolysis-Biochar systems and Life Cycle Assessments for sustainable resource management.

We provide a range of research and advice to companies interested in biochar internationally and are member of the European Biochar Industry Consortium (EBI).
Two current projects include the provision of a pilot line as part of the BIOMAC project (Open Innovation Test Bed - In this context, companies working on bio-based materials can access 14 participating research institutes for the development of prototypes or completely new bio-based product such as biopolymers.
The UKBRC is also leading the biochar-task group for the European Horizon project C-Sink to develop MRV standards for novel CDR technologies such as biochar. Please get in touch at
