The Ithaka consultancy work constitutes the interface between research and practice at the Ithaka Institute. Knowing by doing and by experience needs to complement the scientific method. The proof as to whether scientific lab assumptions and beautiful world-saving theories are correct lies in their practice on the ground.
We provide consultancy services to biochar companies and biochar users to improve, control and guaranty biochar quality. We create new biochar based products to help open new markets for your biochar. We advise policy makers on sustainable production and use of biochar and provide consultancy to urban planners, public administration, farmers and the new bio-based economy to identify carbon intelligent methods to improve the climate balance in rural, urban and industrial settings.
