Centro Agronómico Tropical de Investigación y Enseñanza (Tropical Agriculture Research and Higher Education Center): (CATIE)

The Centro Agronómico Tropical de Investigación y Enseñanza (CATIE), is located at 7170 Turrialba, Cartago 30501 Costa Rica. CATIE has been conducting agricultural biochar trials in the field and in pots for the past two years in a number of tropical soils. Researchers there are continuing to work on soil carbon issues including life cycle analyses of biochar production from agricultural and forestry.

The staff of seven conducts research and highlights biochar in classes in agroecology to graduate students at CATIE.
