About Us

Finger Lakes Biochar is focused on creating and testing biochar made from local organic ‘waste’ and using it in various agricultural and non-agricultural uses including filtration, construction materials and composites (e.g. ‘chardboard,  ‘charene’) to develop best end uses for different types of biochar.

Since most people still fall into the ‘what the heck is biochar?’ category, we are also dedicated to answering that question in plain English without the usual sales lingo.  Ideally we would like to inspire others to create their own local biochar production capability using the most sustainable business model possible.
