Biochar is the product of biomass pyrolysis and gasification. One of the possible application of this product is certainly in agronomic sector, as soil amendment. However biochar use in Italy is subordinated to insert this product in fertilizer list, which biochar could be commercialized with. The aim of this paper is to know the biochar from gasification process (using an Imbert downdraft prototype), in particular investigating its potentiality as soil amendment in terms of European and Italian regulations and in terms of physical and chemical characterizations.
