Pacific Biochar is approved for a Commercial Feed License by CDFA

In December 2022, Pacific Biochar Benefit Corporation was officially approved for a Commercial Feed License through the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) Commercial Feed Regulatory Program (CFRP). We are excited to be working with Seley & Co. to make softwood charcoal (i.e. biochar) available in California as an ingredient for animal feed.

Seley & Co. offers commodity trading services on livestock feed ingredients to hundreds of dairies in the San Joaquin Valley, as well as feed lots, commercial feed mills and poultry producers in the Imperial Valley of California. They are also currently working with UC Davis to initiate feed trials in the Imperial Valley with beef cattle using softwood charcoal manufactured by Pacific Biochar.

Agriculture and Farming | Big Picture

Biochar + Compost

Biochar is often blended with compost when applied in agricultural soils resulting in benefits beyond what either amendment would supply if used alone. What has become clear from research studies is that biochar can dramatically improve the composting process when added at an early stage and in turn the biochar is improved as well.  Amending early stage compost with biochar (co-composting) can result in reduced odors and greenhouse gas emissions, enhanced nutrient conservation, improved habitat for microbiology, and higher compost maturity and stability indices.
