Hi,
I produce 3000 tons of biochip per year of very high quality.
it is 100% untreated natural wood.
certified with European certificate of biochip
We sell biochar in a big bag
There are many fractions (0-1mm) (0-5mm)(0-10mm)(5-15mm)


- the price in a large bag is 280 euros per ton
- Worldwide shipping
- 3000 tons per year
Ready to answer all questions by mail Goodheatsia@gmail.com
We look forward to a long and productive partnership

That's charcoal, unless it's spent time in a compost pile, or been inoculated with compost extract.

What is biochip, or an European certificate of biochip?

Also, how big is a one-ton bag of your charcoal? And do you mean ton or tonne? I only ask because the particulate sizes given are in milimetres, but there's a whopping difference between an imperial ton and a metric tonne.

I call anything made under 300C charcoal and I wouldn't pay for it
But the stuff that is made above 300C esp at 450C, I call it uncharged biochar.
If it has been charged/mixed with worm tea or 50% compost I will take it.
But I actually prefer to charge it myself vs paying for that 50% compost.
If it was produced at temp above 700C I wouldn't pay for it, but I will take it for free.

To get more low-temp biochar into our soils we might have to market it as a way to:
1) extending the efficacy of herbicides
2) controlling their potential pollution

I see conventional farming using it in this "horrible" way as a step in the right direction.
Not a full 100 but at least a 60/100 which in my book is improvement.

I would happily pay that for a ton or a tonne, if shipping was free.  I would really like to see the amount to charcoal it takes to make up a ton.  I make charcoal for use as biochar, and charcoal is very light.  A ton of it would be a really large amount of charcoal.

As far as the definitions, I use charcoal to refer to it as it comes out of the kiln or retort, and biochar after it has been inoculated with something for use in my gardens or orchards.  I haven't found a need for two different words for charcoal made above or below a certain temperature.  Even if I did, I don't have an accurate way of determining the temperature at which it was made.  I'm pretty sure that I am making charcoal at different temperatures within each burn, as well as during different burns, so that difference is irrelevant for my needs.

The last company I wanted to buy from guaranteed their sustainable product... They were stripping mangroves to produce it.

If I may query:

Where is your sustainable source coming from?

Have you done any soil trials to check it has an effect. I have found types char most effective in specific soil types and not so in others. Have you?

What is the certification you speak of? What does it mean to me in terms of expectations of your product?

When do you weigh the char, after the kiln, or before shipping? The moisture content can change the weight dramatically.

This sounds like a good deal but I've been burned (yes it's a char pun) before.

Most of the biochar I see for sale here is wet 50% compost mix.
100% un-charge dry biochar has a volume of 8units
moist biocharge has a volume of 4units
wet activated (50% compost) biochar has a volume of 1unit

I prefer my biochar without innoculation/activation/compost.
I trust myself to make a innoculant that is as good if not better and I am not so time crunch that I can't spend the extra time to get it done.

Do you Market this product for any other purpose? Is any of it used in water filters or as cooking fuel?

I wouldn't expect it to be inoculated with anything. This seems like something that could happen at home.

So here's a company using 'your' images but they're not the same outfit as they claim 500T per month. I suspect this is a scam or at the least an opportunistic middle man. Especially as the OP is not willing to engage with the community.
