Communication is a key element of EBI’s mission. Internally, we are providing a platform for mutual exchange for our members. Externally, we see it as our task to provide state-of-the-art information on biochar, its production, refinement and use.

Within the EBI consortium, we have some of the most important pioneers and entreprenneurs in the biochar industry. Our network consists of leading technology providers, biochar producers and traders, scientists, soil experts and practitioners. From agriculture to biochar carbon trading to high-tech bio-polymers as construction material – our members are at the forefront of biochar developments. In order to foster the exchange within our network and provide relevant information to the public, EBI is developping different formats of exchange.



Our webinars are a possibility to see high-class speakers live without having to physically join an event. This implies no time-consuming travels, no elevated costs and the possibility of joining in from the comfort of your desk. Participating is even carbon negative as we over-compensate the emissions you might produce using electric devices and networks through the Carbonfuture Trading Platform.

Introduction to the Carbon Trading Platform

Hannes Junginger, CEO of Carbonfuture, will give us an insight into their innovative transaction platform for fully auditable carbon sink accounting. Built on blockchain, the Carbonfuture platform is providing verifiable end-to-end carbon removal accounting and flexible trading while acknowledging carbon sequestration over time.
May 26, 17:00-18:00 CEST


The participation is free of charge for EBI members, €50 for non-members.

“All pathways that limit global warming to 1.5 °C with limited or no overshoot project the use of carbon dioxide removal (CDR) on the order of 100–1000 GtCO2 over the 21st century. CDR would be used to com- pensate for residual emissions and, in most cases, achieve net negative emissions to return global warming to 1.5 °C following a peak (high confidence).“ IPCC, 2018.

As we have not succeeded in limiting global Greenhouse Gas Emissions over the last decades, the creation of carbon sinks has become imperative. In order to avoid the most catastrophic impacts on human life, we must capture and safely sequester billions of tons of carbon from the atmosphere. Within the discussed options for CDR, three are readily available, scalable and offering co-benefits: Carbon Forestry, Soil Organic Carbon and Biochar.

Biochar-based carbon sinks are the most stable form of nature-based technologies for carbon sequestration and can be clearly accounted for. Trading of respective carbon certificates is functional and already being implemented.

In this webinar, you will learn what the key building blocks of CDR accounting and financing are, how the Carbonfuture scheme is set up, what the preliminaries are, and you will follow through a live demonstration.


Hannes gained a broad professional background in Financial Engineering and Risk Management working with various financial institutions. At EY he was heading consulting and audit projects for large banks globally. He holds a PhD in mathematics from the University of Freiburg and at Carbonfuture, he now passionately devotes his professional expertise to climate protection.
