Engineers study biochar to fertilize crops, manage manure odors, reduce greenhouse gases …

2 March, 2022
 

AMES, Iowa – Heat up stalks, stems, leaves or wood in a reactor with little or no oxygen (in a process called pyrolysis) and you get bio-oil for fuel and biochar for fertilizer.

There’s always a market and a value for the liquid energy.

But efforts to study, develop and market the black powder as a fertilizer weren’t adding a lot of value to biochar – at least until there’s a carbon market that will pay a premium for the charcoal’s ability to store carbon.

Iowa State University’s Robert C. Brown and his collaborators thought there might be some new ideas and applications that could make biochar a more valuable and useful product, thus enhancing the economics of biorenewables.

So, a few years ago – with nearly $1.5 million from the Biomass Research and Development Initiative, a joint program of the U.S. Departments of Agriculture and Energy – they began using biochar to capture phosphorus from livestock manure and create a slow-release crop fertilizer.

A new, three-year, $1 million, competitive grant from the Agriculture and Food Research Initiative of the USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture will allow them to build on that biochar project.

The researchers say their latest project could one day provide “ecosystem services” such as reductions in manure odors, greenhouse gas emissions and fertilizer runoff to waterways.

“This new grant gives us opportunities to specifically study animal agriculture for ways to valorize biochar even further,” said Brown, an Iowa State Anson Marston Distinguished Professor in Engineering, the Gary and Donna Hoover Chair in Mechanical Engineering, the director of Iowa State’s Bioeconomy Institute and the leader of the latest biochar research project.

 

Santanu Bakshi, an environmental research scientist at the Bioeconomy Institute, has spent about a dozen years studying biochar, everything from doctoral student efforts at the University of Florida to remove copper from the soils of citrus groves to Iowa State efforts to make phosphorus stick – adsorb – to the surface of biochar.

There’s a trick to the latter: Santanu found that pretreating biomass with iron sulfate, an inexpensive byproduct of steel production, modifies the surface of biochar, which has a mostly negative-charged surface, to adsorb, rather than repel, negatively charged molecules such as phosphorus. That biochar-phosphorus combination ended up creating a slow-release fertilizer.

“When we found biochar was useful to trap phosphorus, we thought it would be useful for recycling nutrients from animal manure,” Bakshi said.

The new project will continue to develop biochar technology for capturing phosphorus. It will also develop technology that uses a naturally occurring mineral called zeolite (which attracts positively charged molecules) to capture nitrogen. The two nutrients would then be processed into solid, slow-release fertilizer pellets.

The research team (see sidebar for the full team) will start in the laboratory. Next year, with the help of an industrial-scale pyrolyzer now under construction just west of Des Moines, they’ll have enough biochar for laboratory, farm and field studies.

Bakshi said the goal is to develop an automated bioreactor system. Manure would move through a series of biochar and zeolite chambers that separate, capture and process the nutrients. The resulting biochar and zeolite would then be made into pellets and applied to fields rather than raw manure with its potential for odor, transportation, runoff and greenhouse gas emission problems.

That switch could have big environmental impacts.

“The United States Environmental Protection Agency estimates that 15% of the greenhouse gas emissions are associated with animal manure management in the United States agricultural sector,” the researchers wrote in a project summary. “Hence, it is critical to develop enhanced nutrient management strategies to boost nutrient use efficiency in crop production, improve water quality, and reduce odorous and greenhouse gas emissions.”

 

Advanced manufacturing for biorenewables

The new project will start with biochar supplied by Iowa State’s existing pyrolysis pilot plant at the BioCentury Research Farm west of Ames.

Iowa State’s pilot plant – developed, in part, as part of RAPID, the country’s 10th Manufacturing USA Institute, supported by the U.S. Department of Energy and led by the American Institute of Chemical Engineers – tests the autothermal pyrolysis process developed at Iowa State.

The autothermal process adds a small amount of air to normally oxygen-free pyrolysis. That partially burns some of the biomass being processed and creates some heat for the reactor, dramatically increasing the rate that biomass can be converted to bio-oil and biochar.

One of the RAPID project’s industry partners, Stine Seed Co. of Adel, is working with Frontline BioEnergy of Nevada to build an industrial autothermal pyrolyzer plant based on Iowa State’s technology. It would also test the idea that small, efficient biorefineries could process local biomass, saving the cost and trouble of transporting large amounts of biomass to big biorefineries.

The Stine plant in Redfield will process 50 tons of biomass per day and create 10 tons of biochar per day; Iowa State’s pilot plant can process about a half ton of biomass per day.

“We’re looking forward to scaling up our technology in the Stine pyrolyzer,” Brown said. “That’s important because so much of our work has been done at the lab scale and with small pilot plant studies.”

But those studies have led to big ideas for the bioeconomy such as finding ways to provide ecosystem services in addition to biorenewable products. As a summary of the Bioeconomy Institute’s work says, “Biorenewable feedstocks are produced from an ecosystem that needs to be conserved and renewed in order to ensure future production capacity.”

Iowa State researchers are working to add value to the bioeconomy by using a co-product of bio-oil production to separate and capture nutrients from livestock manure. The nutrients would then be processed into slow-release fertilizer pellets that would be applied to farm fields, rather than raw manure which can have issues with odor, runoff and greenhouse gas emissions.

Partial root-zone drying irrigation improves growth and physiology of tobacco amended with …

2 March, 2022
 

Biochar is a porous-pyrogenic carbon that can improve crop productivity in suboptimal conditions, yet the combined effects of biochar and soil water deficit under partial root-zone drying irrigation (PRD) on plant growth and physiology remain largely elusive. This study therefore investigated the ecophysiological responses of tobacco amended with biochar to different irrigation regimes including PRD.

Tobacco plants were grown in split-root pots to implement PRD under Ferralsol and Anthrosol amended with wheat-straw (WSBC) and soft-wood (MWBC) biochar, and subjected to three irrigation regimes. Key parameters of plant growth and physiology were determined.

Compared to plants grown under full irrigation (FI), deficit irrigation (DI) and PRD decreased leaf area (LA), leaf dry matter (LDM) and leaf relative water content (RWC) but increased leaf N content ([N]leaf); also decreased leaf photosynthetic rate, maximum rate of carboxylation by rubisco and stomatal conductance, while significantly enhanced the intrinsic water-use efficiency (20% and 45%). Compared to non-biochar, WSBC increased LA and LDM but lowered RWC and [N]leaf. DI and PRD significantly increased leaf abscisic acid ([ABA]) and zeatin riboside ([ZR]) while reduced gibberellic acid ([GA3]) and indole-3-acetic acid ([IAA]) concentrations; PRD possessed greater [ABA] and [ABA]/[GA3] but lower [GA3] and [GA3]/[ZR] than DI, which was further magnified by WSBC. Additionally, superoxide dismutase and peroxidases activities were up-regulated by WSBC especially under PRD.

Collectively, incorporating WSBC and PRD might be an effective strategy to improve water productivity by optimizing phytohormonal profile and antioxidant system thereby growth and physiology of tobacco.

Partial root-zone drying irrigation (PRD) and biochar addition altered tobacco phytohormonal profile and antioxidant system.

Wheat-straw biochar amplified the PRD-induced increased leaf abscisic acid and lowered gibberellic acid concentrations.

Wheat-straw biochar up-regulated superoxide dismutase and peroxidases activities.

Combined PRD/wheat-straw biochar application improved tobacco growth and Water-use efficiency.

Co-pyrolysis of sewage sludge and metal-free/metal-loaded polyvinyl chloride (PVC … – X-MOL

2 March, 2022
 

Co-pyrolysis of sewage sludge and plastics have been utilized for producing biochars as a strategy to fix plastic pollution. However, comparative studies on the characteristics and environmental risk of heavy metals in biochars obtained by the co-pyrolysis of sludge and microplastic with/without metal additives are seldom. Here we demonstrated the effects of simulated co-pyrolysis (at 400 °C) of sewage sludge and metal-free or metal-loaded polyvinyl chloride (PVC) microplastics at different mass ratios (1:0, 19:1, 3:1, 1:3, sewage sludge: PVC (w/w)) respectively. Results revealed that co-pyrolysis of metal-loaded PVC and sewage sludge resulted in higher electrical conductivity, ash content, and an acidic pH of biochars as compared to the co-pyrolysis of metal-free PVC and sewage sludge. Addition of metal-loaded PVC increased total concentrations of calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg), cadmium (Cd), and lead (Pb) in biochars, but reduced the bioavailability of Cd, chromium (Cr), nickel (Ni), and zinc (Zn) in biochars. Analysis of chemical speciation showed that heavy metals (except Pb) in biochars derived from co-pyrolysis of sewage sludge and metal-loaded PVC had higher percentage of more stable fraction (residual fraction) and lower potential ecological risk index (RI) value. S1AP3 (sludge: metal-loaded PVC = 1:3) biochar had the lowest environmental risk based on RI value (14.41). To sum up the present study suggests that the addition of metal-loaded PVC microplastic in sewage sludge had a positive impact on the immobilization of heavy metals during co-pyrolysis process.

污水污泥和塑料的共热解已被用于生产生物炭,作为解决塑料污染的策略。然而,关于污泥与微塑料共热解(含/不含金属添加剂)得到的生物炭中重金属的特征和环境风险的比较研究很少。在这里,我们展示了不同质量比(1:0、19:1、3:1、 1:3,污水污泥:PVC(w/w))分别。结果表明,与不含金属的 PVC 和污水污泥的共热解相比,负载金属的 PVC 和污水污泥的共热解导致生物炭的电导率、灰分含量和酸性 pH 值更高。添加金属负载的 PVC 增加了生物炭中钙 (Ca)、镁 (Mg)、镉 (Cd) 和铅 (Pb) 的总浓度,但降低了 Cd、铬 (Cr)、镍 (Ni) 的生物利用度,和生物炭中的锌 (Zn)。化学形态分析表明,污水污泥与载金属PVC共热解生成的生物炭中重金属(除Pb外)较稳定部分(residual fraction)的百分比较高,潜在生态风险指数较低(RI)值。根据 RI 值 (14.41),S1AP3(污泥:金属负载 PVC = 1:3)生物炭具有最低的环境风险。综上所述,本研究表明,在污水污泥中添加负载金属的 PVC 微塑料对共热解过程中重金属的固定有积极影响。

Modeling how Nanoplastics Travel Across the Agricultural Soil – AZoNano

Available in the journal Environmental Science and Technology, scientists have investigated the effect of dissolved organic matter (DOM) released from agricultural organic inputs like biochar, livestock manure, and straw, on the transport of nanoplastics in porous media containing iron.

Study: Effect of Agricultural Organic Inputs on Nanoplastics Transport in Saturated Goethite-Coated Porous Media: Particle Size Selectivity and Role of Dissolved Organic Matter. Image Credit: Volodymyr_Shtun/Shutterstock.com

The adverse effect of microplastics (MPs) in water has become a global concern.

Several studies have indicated that agricultural film crushing, sewage irrigation, atmospheric precipitation, organic fertilization, and surface runoff can present microplastics into farmlands. According to a report, the annual input of MPs to farmland soil is much higher compared to the ocean.

In farmland soil and ocean, MPs degrade via chemical decomposition or biodegradation into nanoplastics, which possess different characteristics owing to their smaller size. Nanoplastics have greater biological toxicity and, hence, it is important to study them to understand their environmental fate. 

Previous studies have indicated that the size of the nanoplastics is the most important influencing factor; this is because their larger size can be retained easily in the sand by the formation of small barriers or agglomeration.

Scientists have reported that the presence of iron (Fe) oxide enhances the deposition of large size nanoplastics. The organic inputs used on agricultural land affect the ecological processes of the soil and influence the fate of its pollutants.

Needless to say, organic inputs are eco-friendly and sustainable fertilizers that significantly enhance crop productivity and improve soil quality.

Importantly, DOM released from organic inputs, adsorb on clay minerals, Fe oxides, and the surface of nanoparticles. This results in considerable alteration of the surface chemistry and retention−repulsion properties of the water−sand−nanoparticle system.

The current report highlights the importance of DOM in soils in regulating the transport of nanoparticles and colloids.

Prior studies have indicated some factors, such as humification, size, and morphology of DOM and humic acid (HA), influence the transport of ferrihydrite nanoparticles. For instance, a large NP leads to a reduced heteroaggregation rate of nanoplastics with DOM.

Scientists stated that more research is required to elucidate the microinterfacial mechanism of nanoplastics under similar conditions, which is analogous to actual farmland soil, especially, considering the effect of organic input and DOM.

Scientists investigated the effect of DOM released from agricultural organic inputs on the transport of nanoplastics in porous media containing Fe. They further studied the mechanism associated with the microinterfacial interaction among DOM, goethite, and nanoplastics using column experiments.

The authors of this study stated that their findings would improve the understanding of nanoplastics mobility in the agricultural ecosystem.

In this study, researchers simulated results of nanoplastics transport with different sizes ranging between 50(50nanoplastics) and 400(400nanoplastics) nm in sand or goethite (GT)-coated sand columns.

It was observed that the transport of 50nanoplastics decreased with increasing GT content, which was more evident in fine sand. This was indicated by a considerable reduction in the recovery rate. Also, researchers observed that elevation in the nanoplastics size and Fe mineral content resulted in a reduction of nanoplastics transport.

A 0.2% GT content significantly reduced 400nanoplastics transport in coarse and fine sand columns. This finding implies that GT has a strong retardation effect on large nanoplastics. 

Scientists evaluated the co-transport of nanoplastics with three types of DOM, i.e., Biochar DOM (BCDOM), wheat straw DOM (WSDOM), and swine manure DOM (SMDOM), in saturated GT-coated sand columns.

It was reported that the co-deposition of 50nanoplastics with DOM occurred due to the formation of a GT–DOM–50nanoplastics complex. However, DOM facilitated 400nanoplastics transport due to electrostatic repulsion. Quantum chemical calculation, cellulose, and HA played a crucial role in 50nanoplastics retardation.

SMDOM exhibited maximum retardation of 50nanoplastics transport and facilitated 400nanoplastics transport, owing to its high moderate humification index (HIX) concentration and cellulose content.

A higher value of HIX maximized the influence of BCDOM on the mobility of 400nanoplastics, compared to WSDOM. Interestingly, higher cellulose content in WSDOM influenced retardation of 50nanoplastics transport, which is analogous to the BCDOM.

A 5% biochar increased the soil DOM by >5 mg L−1, while straw increased 13−60% of DOM when returned to agricultural soil. However, researchers observed that the application of organic fertilization doubled soil DOM concentrations.

DOM in agricultural soil facilitate the downward transport of large nanoplastics, while small nanoplastics are preserved in the tillage layer. 

As nanoplastics are toxic, it is important to understand their transport in agricultural soil. Previous studies have revealed that accumulation affects plants’ growth, directly or indirectly.

More studies are required to analyze the effect of nanoplastics accumulation in the tillage layer, and its introduction to the food chain.

Project No.: 2021/40/Q/NZ8/00006

This project seeks to use garden waste to produce the biochar, and immobilize the PAEs-degrading endophytic bacteria flora so as to reduce PAEs in soil-vegetable system.

The indigenous endophytic community will be domesticated and screened to make it have the ability of efficient degradation of PAEs, and then immobilized on the biochars.

Using the common leafy vegetables, fruit vegetables and root vegetables as test crops, the removal process and pathways of PAEs in the soil-vegetable system by biochar-immobilized endophytic flora will be elucidated. The form, availability and release of PAEs in the vegetable rhizosphere soil will be clarified, and the responses of microorganisms, enzymes, and PAEs-degradation genes in soil and vegetables will be characterized.

On these basis, the chemical and biological mechanisms of the PAEs removal soil-vegetable system by biochar-immobilized endophytic bacteria flora will be comprehensively clarified.

This project is not only expected to provide new ideas for the resource utility of garden wastes in China and Poland, but also provide a key theoretical technique for safe vegetable production in PAEs-contaminated areas. This project will deepen scientific research cooperation and exchanges between China and Poland.

Environmentally-friendly Waste Treatment Plant Proposed For Manawatu | Scoop News

3 March, 2022
 

Video | Business Headlines | Internet | Science | Scientific Ethics | Technology | <a href="http:///” style=”white-space: nowrap”>Search

New Zealand’s first pyrolysis plant for environmentally-friendly conversion of plastic and commercial waste is a step closer to reality.

Bioplant Manawatū New Zealand Ltd (BPMNZ) has applied for resource consent from Horizons Regional Council to move ahead with its plans, and has worked with Manawatu District Council to identify a preferred site at Kawakawa Road in Feilding which will complement the newly developed Resource Recovery Centre on the adjacent site.

Pyrolysis is an environmentally-friendly alternative to incineration and has been used internationally for many years. The plant will use pyrolysis to process municipal solid waste that has had all the recyclable material removed, with the end products (synthetic diesel and biochar) being sold commercially, and waste heat being converted into electricity.

Combustion gases from the process are then treated before being discharged into the air in line with environmental standards.

BPMNZ is partnering with Australian-based Global Green International Investments (GGII) to build the plant, which will be similar to those installed by GGII overseas, including South Korea’s Hankook Tyre Factory.

On a daily basis, the site will be capable of processing up to 40 tonnes of dry waste, producing up to 14,000 litres of diesel, 1.9 MWh of electricity and 2.5 tonnes of biochar. Much of the waste fed into the plant would otherwise be destined for landfill.

An independent assessor’s report (by Pattle Delamore Partners) commissioned by Horizons last year concluded that emissions from the plant would be “less than minor,” meaning that the air quality around and in the immediate zone of the plant would meet both National Air Standards (NESAQ) and local regional standards.

As directed by Horizons, BPMNZ has already consulted on its plans with leaders and representatives of iwi and hapu throughout Manawatū, including Ngati Kauwhata which holds mana whenua on the proposed site.

BPMNZ Chair Kieran Pollard said the company has already discussed its plans with central as well as local government, and the pending introduction of pyrolysis technology to New Zealand has been received favourably.

“Pyrolysis is the most scientifically effective and efficient process available to mitigate the impact of plastics upon the New Zealand environment, and this plant will help Manawatu District Council meet its long-term Greenfield Vision.

“The technology is proven internationally and has been used successfully in Japan and South Korea over the past decade. BPMNZ’s scientifically monitored and managed process will ensure excellent results for the people of Manawatu.”

GGII founder and Chair, Allan Clarke, said GGII was delighted to partner with BPMNZ and be part of the centre of excellence to help minimise waste in New Zealand.

“GGII is proud to be the exclusive supplier to a number of global public companies helping rid the world of landfills and incinerators, and helping clean our oceans of plastics. We support and work with NGOs and ocean plastics groups throughout the world, including Clean-Seas and the Alliance to End Plastic Waste.”

BPMNZ Consultant Taupo Tani, who is leading the engagement with iwi on the project, says the plant will be a game changer as New Zealand deals with a growing waste issue.

“Too much of our plastic waste has to be dumped in landfills. With pyrolysis we have an opportunity to address this problem and make a real contribution to improving Aotearoa New Zealand’s environment.”

Independent scientist Dr Peng Koh of Viroment Technologies NZ said the pyrolysis system is highly versatile. “Its modular nature means production can be doubled without significant extra capital outlay. It can also handle a wide range of feedstock such as wood waste, human waste, organic waste, non-recycled plastics and other non-recycled carbonaceous material.”

Removal of nitrogen and phosphorus from water by sludge-based biochar modified … – IWAPOnline

Dezhi Xu, Xiulei Fan, Qing Chen, Shuyun Qiao, Jiankun Zhang, Yangyang Yang, Hong Wang, Linjun Zhang, Jun Hou; Removal of nitrogen and phosphorus from water by sludge-based biochar modified by montmorillonite coupled with nano zero-valent iron. Water Sci Technol 2022; wst2022077. doi: https://doi.org/10.2166/wst.2022.077

Biochar prepared by thermal decomposition of sewage sludge is a new adsorbent for sludge resource utilization and aquatic environmental treatment. In this study, sewage sludge was used as raw material for the preparation of pyrolysis sludge-based biochar. In addition, montmorillonite (Mt) and nano zero-valent iron (nZVI) were used to modify sludge-based biochar in different combinations to improve its adsorption capacity of nitrogen and phosphorus in water, and the best modification scheme was selected. The physicochemical properties of the biochar were analyzed by FTIR, XRD, BET, SEM and XPS. The results showed that Mt and nZVI could improve the specific surface area and enrich the surface functional groups. The results on kinetics and equilibrium isotherms showed that sludge-based biochar modified by Mt coupled with nZVI (nZVI@MBC) had the best adsorption effect on NH4+ and PO43−. And its theoretical maximum saturation adsorption capacity for NH4+ and PO43− was 34.84 mg·g−1 and 294.12 mg·g−1, respectively. Our results were in the forefront of existing literature on modified sludge-based biochar. The adsorption mechanisms of nZVI@MBC for NH4+ and PO43− mainly include ligand exchange, electrostatic attraction and ionic bond. In addition, nZVI@MBC can also remove PO43− by chemical precipitation and coprecipitation of iron corrosion products.

  • Preparing a sludge-based biochar modified by Mt coupled with nZVI.

  • nZVI@MBC has excellent adsorptive capacity for NH4+ and PO43−.

  • Mt can greatly improve the cation exchange capacity of nZVI@MBC due to its unique structure.

  • nZVI increased the adsorption site and reactivity of nZVI@MBC, and can be precipitated with PO43−.

  • The presence of BC and Mt alleviates the defect of easy agglomeration passivation of nZVI in water.

Structure and function of biochar in remediation and as carrier of microbes — University of Helsinki

3 March, 2022
 

Degradation of land and contamination of soils with environmental pollutants is a continuous threat to the wellbeing of man and the environment. Prevention of pollution is still not priority and cost-effective means of cleaning up contaminated land and water are much in demand. Many technological means are available for cleanup, but usually they are very costly and intended remediation tends to be postponed due to lack of funds. New nature-based materials are appearing that should be cost-effective in remediation but need practical development since they require extra knowledge about structure-function relations. In situ or on-site bioremediation can be implemented using plants and associated beneficial microbes. The development of biochars for use in environmental remediation is emerging for both inorganic and organic pollutants and their combination with phytoremediation is a good opportunity. This chapter presents the current knowledge in the area of sustainable remediation and discuss the possibilities of using biochar as a carrier of remedial microbes.

Does the biochar requires energy (for heating) to be produced? How much, and from what source?

No, it actually produces excess energy. Volatile compounds in the biomass are burned, which creates heat and leaves behind carbon (biochar or charcoal).

@Matt V Right, the only energy input it needs is the flame that starts the fire (i.e. a Zippo lighter or match). The rest all comes from combustion.

@Daniel no, that would be with normal burning (using oxygen), which releases carbon.
If you watch until the second half, it requires energy to start the pyrolysis, but capture of the flammable gases makes the net energy usage negative

Save the planet.

Carbon is life so if you take carbon away you take life away. Carbon dioxide makes plants live so anyone who is vegan should be very worried about getting rid of it. I hear lots of people talking about climate change and only talking about taking co2 from the atmosphere but nobody is talking about all the chemicals and heavy metals getting sprayed in the skies all day every day that is poisoning the earth and everything that lives here as well as blocking out the sun which all life needs to survive. Wake up people you are being taken for a fool and helping them kill you and everything else off for good if you go along with these lies. Humans have been around for hundreds of millions of years but keep getting wiped out by the same kind of people who are trying to wipe us out now. History is lies along with everything you are being brainwashed to believe now. Something much more powerful and complex than humans designed this world and it works well enough on its own without humans trying to be the creator. Humans can’t even handle the force of water let alone anything else.

Where do i invest?

in yourself

How is it heated without oxygen?

Simply packing it in a sealed metal box with an outlet valve and heating the box will do

Usually in a pyrolysis plant a fraction of the biomass is burned to produce heat, or another fraction can be gasified to produce a syngas. Both the exhaust gases from the burner and the syngas produced by gasification do not contain oxygen and they are hot. So they can be used to heat up the biomass to produce char.

Good video

… and its really easy to make. Check out the “kon tiki” pit design on other youtube videos if you are just getting started for your garden or farm.

👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

By removing CO2 from the atmosphere you are suffocating the plants that manufacture oxygen. If you do not have oxygen to breath then you suffocate also.

He meant, reduce Co2.

I don’t know if anyone noticed but the icecaps have been melting since the end of the last ice age 11,000 years ago. Who was responsible then?

@Adrien Bellaiche the rate is irrelevant, the outcome was inevitable. It’s happened before.

@Adrien Bellaiche yes. The great floods in which sea level increased feet over the course of a few days are well documented…..caused by Youngas Dryer impact

I am so very sorry, I have to admit it was me, I wen’t out the other epoch and silly me, I left the heating on full blast. Was such a bender that sesh, took me a million years or so to get home and turn it down.

@Dusty McGuire Can I ask you to consider the vast volume of water the oceans would have had to swallow, given any sea ice does not add to the level in the same way melting ice does not brim a glass if it melts, so all those mega kilometers of water volume can only have occupied the most northern and southern land masses (lets give it a generous half the total land mass @5% total area) so we need to explain a 95-5 volumetric increase ie; 90% of the planet rose by hundreds of meters with a volume ONLY drawn from 5% of its surface!

@freemanjack msiradio that’s actually quite interesting because I never crunched the numbers until now, but it doesn’t really add up, it’s like a drop in the ocean (no pun intended)

Someone tell this guy trees do the same.

Trees are carbon neutral.

@Krystal so is biochar ultimately, all biology decays, decay releases sequestered carbon, biochar merely slows that process but then so does simply planting more trees, wood fuel should count as ‘carbon neutral’ in reality which might drive far better change than its listing as a pollutant.

​@freemanjack msiradio As long as large trees are not planted in the suburbs, this has caused property damage, destruction and major maintenance on these properties. Where I live, everybody planted trees in the 1980’s because our Prime Minister told everybody we had to plant a billion trees to save the planet. The trees surrounding me, actually affect my insurance, and I don’t even have any trees. I can see in the next ten to 20 years the tree problem here will become massive.

@Krystal Agree entirely, in south east london we are now overrun by a canadain maple used as a decoration for a royal visit that never happened in ’77, now if all those trees were treated as a man made forest and harvested on a 12 year cycle, none of this would be problematic and home owners could be compensated by selling their low grade timber for fuel wood.

@Krystal Is the REAL problem the trees or ur suburbian lifestyles often grounded in excessive consumerism?

@APEX PREDATOR 101 I don’t have time to consume, I’m too busy cleaning up the neighbours vegetation and blocked drains.

@Krystal let’s build the tree houses 😍🤩

Good

You know what else removes CO2 from the air? It’s a product that has been in development for over a billion years. The smucking TREE!

More far-left BS. Do you know that we need CO2 to LIVE?

It a bucket against the sea. Much more effective processes are needed.

One of many solutions and carbon to the soil has additional benefits. All wholistic approaches will be useful to design our future systems.

All journeys start with one step… This does not exclude other technologies/solutions.

This is great! Now, where can I get some for my nasty Texas dessert soil?!

Your neoliberal globalist control plan is no more. Encourage people to do what they .can in their yards as individuals. Do this and the world will profit, try to force a global tax on us and your dreams will burn with you.

Putin’s still killing our people and destroying our cities!!! Today even cluster bombs were used, despite the fact that they were prohibited by the Convention. Google if you have no idea what kind of a horrific weapon it is! We are begging you to speak out in order to make the governments of your countries take measures and stop putin’s crimes !!!

Ill informed bunkum, biochar is a wonderful soil conditioner, however the sequestering of the initial charcoal into the soil column ‘increases microbial activity and biodiversity’, ANY biological action outside of the oxygen produced by oceanic blue green algae PRODUCES carbon dioxide as a net output, carbon dioxide is the gas of life, continually cycled to generate every cellular function. Just as an fyi, the Amazon is NOT the ‘lungs of the world’ it like every other land based life, has a carbon net zero, if you want to sanctify any part of the planet, the subsurface of the oceans is where to look, not only does this ecosystem generate ALL available excess oxygen (due to the gaseous bubbles rising from their source to the surface into the atmosphere) it also feeds the diatoms whose skeletons are sequestered carbon in the form of calcium carbonate which slowly rains on to the sea floor.

Oh we finally figured out how to use energy to put carbon back to the ground? Thats almost as cool as not digging it up and burning it in the first place.

CO² is airborne fertiliser for plants that photosynthesise. A vital element for continued life above ground. The Carboniferous (the most productive period in Earth’s history) had levels up to 7000ppm; and it laid all the oil and coal.
A shortage of CO² costs the plant internal water because the stoma have to remain open longer to get the essential snack.
Biochar: requires burning organic matter which releases CO².
The most complete solution to Earth’s problems are contained in the principles of Regenerative Agriculture (RA) because life on Earth is a dynamic system that requires consumption, recycling and regrowth. Once you grasp the interweaving of all the processes of RA we can see a path to the reversal of all of the man-made deserts; which is all of them, they are not natural. New growth sucks up CO² fast.

Or he could produce it himself and sell it to his neighbors.

He will donate his waste product and pay to get it back? Hmmm wonder why this is suggested in Africa and not Arizona or Texas or California? Why, because the plan is probably to exploit.

Ted, stop the infocommercials!

So… it’s charcoal then.

Um, how is this any better than just mulching or composting dead plants? How is generating _more_ heat a good thing? Lots of other things already generate heat (eg electronics), why not try to capture or divert those unavoidable sources of heat instead of making more? If you want to burn plants (hopefully already dead), then at least try to find ways to reduce how much heat other stuff (like lighting and transportation) generate.

Normal decomposition releases CO2.

Booooooooo to this old TED intro. The new one is soooooooo much less annoying than this one — it’s cleaner and adroitly concise!

Wow, Biochar looks so promising.

Nobody is listening because they are too busy buying cheap crap from China on Amazon and then returning it. One big revolving door of pollution.

This could be very useful in India as Agriculture residues are just brunt.

Nathan and Jenna Tilley – Eugene Weekly

3 March, 2022
 

“We are just starting up with classes,” says organic farmer Nathan Tilley, who manages the Parker Learning Gardens on Rivers Turn Farm north of Coburg, along with his wife, Jenna Tilley. “Our first class, Soil Regeneration with Biochar Creation, is open to all and will happen every other Saturday. For kids, we are offering an after-school garden club starting in mid-March.” The Parker Learning Gardens were started by John Sundquist, co-founder with Jerry Rust of the Hoedads tree planting cooperative in the 1970s, and named after his wife Marsha’s parents. Her father Richard Parker was a microbiologist and an early advocate for the health benefits of microorganisms. Hundreds of elementary school students have learned about organic gardening over the years on field trips to the farm. Nathan Tilley was raised on Crossroads farm, just a mile away. After they planted an acre of hops, he and his brother Ben opened Agrarian Ales, a brewery and farm-to-table restaurant, on the farm in 2012. “I started working there as a dishwasher in 2015,” says Jenna, who grew up on a farm near Philomath. “I did every single position: bartender, server, kitchen staff. I ended up as general manager. We knew John and would drive over and trim his fruit trees in trade for apples and pears. We made farmhouse ales with fruit, chilis and other things we grew.” But the restaurant business was seasonal out in the countryside, and Agrarian Ales closed its doors in 2019. Nathan and Jenna got married in 2020, and they decided to take on the learning gardens after Sundquist’s death in July 2021. “We helped maintain the land for John for about a year before he passed,” Nathan notes. “Marsha lives in their new house, built in 2017. We live on site in the old 1910 farmhouse.” The learning gardens offer classes for school-age kids and community members from Eugene and surrounding areas. Learn more at ParkerLearningGardens.org.

Engineers study biochar to fertilize crops, manage manure odors, reduce greenhouse gases

3 March, 2022
 

Newswise — AMES, Iowa – Heat up stalks, stems, leaves or wood in a reactor with little or no oxygen (in a process called pyrolysis) and you get bio-oil for fuel and biochar for fertilizer.

There’s always a market and a value for the liquid energy.

But efforts to study, develop and market the black powder as a fertilizer weren’t adding a lot of value to biochar – at least until there’s a carbon market that will pay a premium for the charcoal’s ability to store carbon.

Iowa State University’s Robert C. Brown and his collaborators thought there might be some new ideas and applications that could make biochar a more valuable and useful product, thus enhancing the economics of biorenewables.

So, a few years ago – with nearly $1.5 million from the Biomass Research and Development Initiative, a joint program of the U.S. Departments of Agriculture and Energy – they began using biochar to capture phosphorus from livestock manure and create a slow-release crop fertilizer.

A new, three-year, $1 million, competitive grant from the Agriculture and Food Research Initiative of the USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture will allow them to build on that biochar project.

The researchers say their latest project could one day provide “ecosystem services” such as reductions in manure odors, greenhouse gas emissions and fertilizer runoff to waterways.

“This new grant gives us opportunities to specifically study animal agriculture for ways to valorize biochar even further,” said Brown, an Iowa State Anson Marston Distinguished Professor in Engineering, the Gary and Donna Hoover Chair in Mechanical Engineering, the director of Iowa State’s Bioeconomy Institute and the leader of the latest biochar research project.

Biochar as a manure manager

Santanu Bakshi, an environmental research scientist at the Bioeconomy Institute, has spent about a dozen years studying biochar, everything from doctoral student efforts at the University of Florida to remove copper from the soils of citrus groves to Iowa State efforts to make phosphorus stick – adsorb – to the surface of biochar.

There’s a trick to the latter: Santanu found that pretreating biomass with iron sulfate, an inexpensive byproduct of steel production, modifies the surface of biochar, which has a mostly negative-charged surface, to adsorb, rather than repel, negatively charged molecules such as phosphorus. That biochar-phosphorus combination ended up creating a slow-release fertilizer.

“When we found biochar was useful to trap phosphorus, we thought it would be useful for recycling nutrients from animal manure,” Bakshi said.

The new project will continue to develop biochar technology for capturing phosphorus. It will also develop technology that uses a naturally occurring mineral called zeolite (which attracts positively charged molecules) to capture nitrogen. The two nutrients would then be processed into solid, slow-release fertilizer pellets.

The research team (see sidebar for the full team) will start in the laboratory. Next year, with the help of an industrial-scale pyrolyzer now under construction just west of Des Moines, they’ll have enough biochar for laboratory, farm and field studies.

Bakshi said the goal is to develop an automated bioreactor system. Manure would move through a series of biochar and zeolite chambers that separate, capture and process the nutrients. The resulting biochar and zeolite would then be made into pellets and applied to fields rather than raw manure with its potential for odor, transportation, runoff and greenhouse gas emission problems.

That switch could have big environmental impacts.

“The United States Environmental Protection Agency estimates that 15% of the greenhouse gas emissions are associated with animal manure management in the United States agricultural sector,” the researchers wrote in a project summary. “Hence, it is critical to develop enhanced nutrient management strategies to boost nutrient use efficiency in crop production, improve water quality, and reduce odorous and greenhouse gas emissions.”

Advanced manufacturing for biorenewables

The new project will start with biochar supplied by Iowa State’s existing pyrolysis pilot plant at the BioCentury Research Farm west of Ames.

Iowa State’s pilot plant – developed, in part, as part of RAPID, the country’s 10th Manufacturing USA Institute, supported by the U.S. Department of Energy and led by the American Institute of Chemical Engineers – tests the autothermal pyrolysis process developed at Iowa State.

The autothermal process adds a small amount of air to normally oxygen-free pyrolysis. That partially burns some of the biomass being processed and creates some heat for the reactor, dramatically increasing the rate that biomass can be converted to bio-oil and biochar.

One of the RAPID project’s industry partners, Stine Seed Co. of Adel, is working with Frontline BioEnergy of Nevada to build an industrial autothermal pyrolyzer plant based on Iowa State’s technology. It would also test the idea that small, efficient biorefineries could process local biomass, saving the cost and trouble of transporting large amounts of biomass to big biorefineries.

The Stine plant in Redfield will process 50 tons of biomass per day and create 10 tons of biochar per day; Iowa State’s pilot plant can process about a half ton of biomass per day.

“We’re looking forward to scaling up our technology in the Stine pyrolyzer,” Brown said. “That’s important because so much of our work has been done at the lab scale and with small pilot plant studies.”

But those studies have led to big ideas for the bioeconomy such as finding ways to provide ecosystem services in addition to biorenewable products. As a summary of the Bioeconomy Institute’s work says, “Biorenewable feedstocks are produced from an ecosystem that needs to be conserved and renewed in order to ensure future production capacity.”

Soil carbon management, and the litany of practices associated with it, is a way to introduce more carbon into the soil and/or keep the carbon present in the soil for a more extended period of time. Most farmers and/or land maintenance professionals already practice some form of soil management, whether knowingly or not. They include:

Planting cover crops

Leaving leftover plant biomass to natural decay

Actively selecting plant species or varietals that have a greater root mass

Using no-till or low-till practices

Double-cropping

These practices are sometimes referred to as “carbon farming” or “regenerative agriculture.”

Biochar sometimes referred to as charcoal or black carbon (although not to be confused with carbon black), is a carbon-rich material produced from biomass pyrolysis (thermal decomposition) in an oxygen-deprived environment. This type of sequestration is sometimes called pyrogenic carbon capture and storage, or bio-energy carbon capture and storage, with the latter being more commonly used.

The general thesis behind how biochar can mitigate climate change and sequester carbon revolves around photosynthesis. Plants take in carbon dioxide through their metabolic processes (photosynthesis) and thus sequester that carbon in their biomass. That biomass is harvested and then pyrolyzed.

The biomass pyrolyzation process of creating biochar

"The thermal treatment of biomass at 350 °C–900 °C in an oxygen-deficient atmosphere. Three main carbonaceous products are generated during this process, which can be stored subsequently in different ways to produce [negative emissions]: a solid biochar as soil amendment, a pyrolytic liquid (bio-oil) pumped into depleted fossil oil repositories, and permanent-pyrogas (dominated by the combustible gases CO, H2 and CH4) that may be transferred as CO2 to geological storages after combustion.”

Notice the creation of bio-oil; Charm Industrial makes and pumps into the subsurface.

Deliberate biochar creation has a long history. Humans have been taking advantage of this soil additive for a long time, documented at least 150 years in the western world, and evidence of its use for centuries longer in Africa and Asia.

Alongside its long history of use, biochar has a unique property that some other removal technologies do not: straightforward co-benefits. In a meta-analysis of 26 studies, it was found that.

In 26 meta-analyses published since 2016, encompassing more than 1500 scientific publications, the application of biochar delivered mean positive effects for all investigated parameters regarding performance and environmental impact of land cultivation. No negative agronomic or environmental effects were consistently demonstrated for any of the parameters evaluated. Even if there is a certain tendency in scientific publication practice to publish rather significant and positive results (publication bias), the number of studies and the selection criteria used here nevertheless stands for a robust data basis.

Biochar can affect many different parameters: plant productivity, stimulation of root growth and photosynthetic performance, microbial biomass and enzymatic activity of nitrogen fixation, plant-available soil water and bulk density, soil organic matter increase, reducing heavy metal uptake, and so on.

As this same paper points out, the type, mixing, and application of biochar is not a one-size-fits-all situation, and this should be factored into the analysis1

Type of biochar (biomass feedstock, pyrolysis conditions, particle size) and possible post-pyrolysis treatment (biological treatments such as lactic fermentation or composting, chemical treatments such as acidification, etc.).

Mode of mixing biochar and fertilizer (separate application, mixing biochar with liquid fertilizer, mixing biochar with a solid, chemical formulation of the blended fertilizer, etc.)

Optimal application method (homogeneous spreading, strip application, injection, micronized biochar particles via drip irrigation, etc.).

Next week’s post will dig more deeply into the pros and cons of biochar as a soil conditioner and as a removal tool.

Current Market and Potential

Although biochar is a relatively mature technology (compared to other removal methods), the market is still reasonably small. Although I found the numbers to vary pretty wildly based on what group I was looking at, the current US market is somewhere around $125M while the global market is around $1.3B. This is slated to increase over the coming years and, depending on who’s numbers you trust, could grow by over $1.47B by 2026 or $3.238B by 2026.

Source

Alongside the dedicated revenue streams associated with soil management, several organizations have begun to offer carbon offsets through biochar. This provides another revenue stream for biochar producers and necessarily increases their market potential.

The potential for biochar as a climate change mitigation tool is substantial, although mixed in magnitudes. Current variations in contributions of carbon sequestration lie between 1 to 35 GT CO2 per year. Still, due to uncertainties in the availability of biomass for pyrolysis and the yet to be demonstrated scale of projects, it could be anywhere from 0.3-2 GT CO2 per year.

Takeaways

Biochar has numerous co-benefits that set it apart from other removal technologies. This, coupled with the ability to scale relative to other technologies, make it an attractive option for carbon removals. However, some doubts remain on the durability of these removals.

Next week I’ll dive into a more detailed analysis of biochars’ advantages and some of the challenges through the lens of removals.

How biochar-based fertilizers and biochar-compost affect nutrient cycling and crop productivity

5 March, 2022
 

Nutrient Cycling in Agroecosystems is seeking submissions for a Special Issue on the effects of biochar-based fertilizers and biochar-compost on nutrient cycling and crop productivity. All manuscripts will be peer-reviewed by 2-3 independent reviewers and handled by the Guest Editors, in collaboration with the Journal’s Editors-in-Chief. Papers accepted for publication in the Special Issue will be available online soon after acceptance, and before inclusion in the Special Issue.

Biochar technology has emerged in the past two decades as an opportunity to contribute to mitigating climate change while contributing to the circular economy concept by recycling nutrients from waste materials and increasing fertilizer use efficiency, among other benefits. Meta-analyses have robustly shown the effect of biochar in enhancing crop yield when applied along with fertilizer and compared with conventional fertilizers. This encourages its targeted selection for agronomic (and environmental) use prior to soil application. However, the low economic feasibility of the use of biochar without financial incentives is leading to the development of biochar-based products, such as biochar-based fertilizers, which could make this technology more cost-effective due to the enhanced nutrient use efficiency and associated lower biochar application rates needed. Also, biochar-compost mixtures have synergistic effects that are expected to generate more benefits than their separate use.

Biochar-based fertilizers can be manufactured in different ways aiming to improve the slow-release profile of nutrients so that crop requirements are timely met and nutrient use efficiency is increased compared to conventional fertilizers. The flexible array of biochar organic matrices allows the tailor design of biochar-based fertilizers. In contrast to mineral fertilizers, biochar-based fertilizers can locally improve CEC around fertilizer granules, water retention, and soil biological activity, which can improve nutrient cycling and crop productivity. For biochar-compost mixtures two main approaches can be used, i.e., physical mixture and co-composting. Compost can stimulate microbial activity and overcome nutrient limitations in biochar, while biochar increases the surface area and contains a more stable carbon. Co-composting can also reduce GHG emissions and improve the characteristics of the end product to a larger extent than solely the physical mixture.

This special issue considers manuscripts on biochar-based fertilizers and biochar compost with a focus on nutrient cycling and crop productivity. Studies should typically include multi-year field observations, but this special issue also welcomes contribution of shorter field observations and studies in controlled environments, as long as they contribute to the understanding of nutrient cycling at the field-scale.

The nitrogen and phosphate content of urea promotes soil fertility. By adjusting the nitrogen-phosphorus-potassium ratio, the fertilizer can be turned into pellets. Biochar, for example, adds carbon to the fertilizer, whereas recycling struvite provides phosphates.

Human urine is a significant source of nutrients for plants, but digesting it with current sanitation methods can be difficult. Drying diverted urine can be a game-changer in terms of maximizing its benefits. Prithvi Simha, a postdoctoral researcher in environmental engineering at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, told about how pee can be separated, collected, and treated to create fertilizer pellets. In February 2022, Simha published a report on the subject in Source magazine.

Prithvi Simha says, “Potassium, nitrogen, and phosphorus are abundant in urine. When we flush, pee travels through sewer pipes to treatment plants, where it is diluted by flush water. This makes the process of removing nitrogen from urine, which can be utilized to boost soil fertility, more difficult. Urine can be treated at the source by collecting and drying it separately.”

“We have manufactured dried food and other materials for a long time, therefore the drying technique is not new. We already have the materials necessary to build a urine-drying toilet. The high-end ceramic urine-diverting toilet may be out of reach for the average family. To make urine collection more cost-effective, a simple canister or drum can be placed.”

Stabilization is done to balance the pH level of urine by adding limestone and making it more alkaline. The nutrients are then air blasted at a specific temperature and humidity level to eliminate water and maintain them in a non-volatile state. A concealing trap- ‘S’ trap or ‘C’ trap- pipe can be placed to prevent scent or urine from returning to the toilet bowl.

The study was carried out at eight research stations spread across North Carolina. The researchers evaluated two soybean fields at…

“It has the potential to be a solution for rural India. Multiple urine-handling chambers can be avoided in rural India, and an economically scaled semi-centralized system can be erected, linking several urinals/toilets together, to make the urine-drying system affordable and user-friendly.”

“To treat and dry urine, many urinals or pee-diverting chambers can be connected to a single container/chamber with a dryer. The proceeds from the sale of the finished product (fertilizer) can be put to good use in the system’s operation and maintenance,” says Prithvi Simha.

The nitrogen and phosphate content of urea promotes soil fertility. By adjusting the nitrogen-phosphorus-potassium ratio, the fertilizer can be turned into pellets. Biochar, for example, adds carbon to the fertilizer, whereas recycling struvite provides phosphates.

The fertilizer has been lab and field tested in three countries. It thrives in paddy crops such as barley, wheat, maize, and sugarcane. The fertiliser-produced food or liquids are returned to markets, sold, and consumed by households. This contributes to the development of an urban-rural link because the more people who urinate, the less we pollute the environment and wastewater treatment plants, and the less we rely on fresh water.

Recently, biochar-related research using agricultural by-products has been actively conducted as part of aresponse to climate change. However, the effect research of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by the applicationof biochar by soil type in Korea is still insufficient. Thus, the purpose of this study was to evaluate thegreenhouse gas reduction effect according to the application level of biochar by soil type. Closed chamberexperiments were carried out for 42 days. The closed chamber experiment was performed by applying a differentinput amount biochar (0, 5, 10 and 20 ton ha-1) by four soil types (upland soil, greenhouse soil, converted soil,reclaimed soil). The cumulative carbon dioxide (CO2) emission decreased by 21.1 – 25.7% on average ingreenhouse soil, converted soil, and reclaimed soil, but there was no significant difference. It was analyzedthat the cumulative nitric oxide (N2O) emission decreased significantly by 43.7 – 72.1% on average comparedto the control group. All four soil types were analyzed to have low N2O emissions in the treatment chamber towhich 20 ton ha-1 of biochar was applied. Long-term monitoring studies related biochar that can suppressnitrous oxide emissions and increase crop production are considered to needed for sustainable agriculture.

About Us – Biochar Life

5 March, 2022
 

An impact venture of Warm Heart Worldwide, Biochar Life cools the climate by helping to remove carbon from the atmosphere.

 

We mobilize a huge previously untapped human resource, the smallholder farmers of the developing world, to convert currently burned crop waste, a huge, previously ignored source of greenhouse gases, into carbon sequestering biochar.

 

We train smallholder farmers to biochar, not burn, their crop waste, certify the amount of carbon removed, provide access to global carbon offset markets for the verified carbon sequestration and ensure immediate payment, thereby encouraging others also to biochar, not burn.

The Biochar Life team possesses years of experience working with thousands of farmers across Africa and Asia.

We teach smallholder farmers sustainable agriculture, i.e., how to make biochar from agricultural waste and use it to improve yields and mitigate climate change risk, instead of open-field burning it, which emits tonnes of GHGs, smog precursors and killer PM2.5.

We work hand-in-hand with local communities and independent agencies to verify the production of biochar using the internationally recognized EBC C-sink tropical farmer standard supported by blockchain-enabled, smartphone-based tracking technology. Once CO2 is removed from the atmosphere (i.e., sinked), our team works directly with customers or trading partners who purchase the C-sink certificates to meet CSR / ESG goals.

Biochar Life’s mission is to support the environmental and wellness needs of the general public via the removal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and reduction of emissions.  Our proceeds and future investments will be deployed to improve the lives of rural communities and uplift the underrepresented, which will be accomplished by removing still more carbon dioxide and reducing emissions further. We are committed to gender and income equality by employing fair and equal hiring practices for the once excluded.

Enhanced remediation of Cd-contaminated soil using electrokinetic assisted by permeable …

5 March, 2022
 

Electrokinetic remediation (EK) combined with a permeable reactive barrier (PRB) is a relatively new technique for efficiently remediating Cd-contaminated soil in situ. Eupatorium adenophorum, which is a malignant invasive plant, was used to synthesize biochar and a novel lanthanum-based biochar composite (LaC). The biochar and LaC were used as cheap and environmentally benign PRB filling materials to remediate simulated and real Cd-contaminated soils. The pH and residual Cd concentration in the simulated contaminated soil during remediation gradually increased from the anode to the cathode used to apply an electric field to the EK–PRB system. However, the soil conductivity changed in the opposite way, and the current density first increased and then decreased. For simulated contaminated soils with initial Cd concentrations of 34.9 and 100.6 mg kg−1, the mean Cd removal rates achieved using LaC were 90.6% and 89.3%, respectively, which were significantly higher than those of biochar (P < 0.05). Similar results were achieved using natural soils from mining area and polluted farmland, and the Cd removal rates were 66.9% and 72.0%, respectively. Fourier-transform infrared and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy indicated that there were many functional groups on the LaC surfaces. The removal mechanism of EK-PRB for Cd in contaminated soil includes electromigration, electroosmotic flow, surface adsorption, and ion exchange. The results indicated that the LaC could be used in the EK–PRB technique as a cheap and “green” material to efficiently decontaminate soil polluted with heavy metals.


Microwave-assisted torrefaction of biomass Kappaphycus alvarezii–based biochar and …

5 March, 2022
 

The present study investigates the isotherm and kinetics of aqueous hexavalent chromium [Cr(VI)] removal using biochar (Ka-BC) and magnetic biochar (Ka-MBC) derived from seaweed biomass, Kappaphycus alvarezii. Characteristics of prepared Ka-BC and Ka-MBC were explored by FT-IR, XRD, SEM, EDAX, and surface area analysis. The effects of initial pH, contact time, and chromium concentration were investigated based on batch adsorption experiments. The maximum chromium adsorption was 64.8% and 82.5% using Ka-BC and Ka-MBC, respectively, corresponding to 500 mg/L loading at pH 3 with initial chromium concentration of 1 mg/L after 150 min of sorption reaction. The removal of chromium is mainly dependent on pH and follows a pseudo-second-order kinetic model. The adsorption experiments showed that Ka-MBC has better removal capacity than the Ka-BC due to multi-layer mechanism and surface roughness phenomenon in Ka-MBC. The chromium adsorption on Ka-MBC followed Langmuir isotherm. The current study demonstrates the utilization of seaweed-derived magnetic biochar composite as an efficient sorbent and low-cost alternative for the removal of Cr(VI) from the environment.

Enriched Biochar – The Soil Farm

5 March, 2022
 

Enriched Biochar

EASY TO USE
It’s easy to apply and, because of its water holding qualities, it means less maintenance of plants, crops and lawns. It also means you’ll save a bit on those water bills.

PERMANENT EFFECTS
Biochar is so high in carbon that it doesn’t break down over time, meaning one application is all you need to permanently improve your soil.

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY
1 tonne of biochar in the ground is the equivalent of 3 tonnes of carbon dioxide permanently sequestered from the atmosphere!

IMPROVES PLANT HEALTH
Enriched biochar is proven to boost the health and vitality of nearly every type of plant, and healthier plants are stronger and more productive!

Garden to Table: Supercharge your seed starts with a DIY 'soilution' – North Shore News

6 March, 2022
 

Sign In

Register

Jack Frost, I’ve learned, doesn’t like to be rushed.

Like most winter-weary gardeners, I have seed started indoors and outdoors too early in the season, to no benefit, and often to great detriment. Most seedlings, like most children, catch up in the end, so there is no point and certainly no fun in working them too hard, too soon.

Also like children, seedlings need complex nutrients from the get go, to thrive.

On that note, and based more-or-less entirely on instinct, we do not indoor seed start in the sterile soil-less environment suggested by contemporary wisdom. I add worm castings, and plenty of them, to a simple professional mix with perlite, and we fertilize post-germination with a very weak worm compost tea. So far, so good.

When seed starting outdoors in our old greenhouse, we use sifted organic compost and worm castings, and once seedlings are established, we fertilize with a soluble kelp solution and weak compost tea.

On occasion, in the greenhouse, I will see some surface greening of the soil, but we have never had problems with mold, or gnats, or any other sort of soil-specific trouble. Water, light, temperature and ventilation are important variables of course, individually and in combination, and those too should be considered, I believe, in relation to natural ecosystems.

I cannot empirically defend our non-standard choices, rather I share them with you for consideration. It makes sense to me to follow nature’s logic whenever possible. Plants need living soil to thrive without synthetic intervention. Granted, I don’t want an active compost inside my home, so adding worm castings from a castings farm (not from my in-bed worm composts) seems a safe enough bet.

I have been adding compost-activated biochar to my garden soil, but this year we are adding biochar to all seed starting mixes as well, at a rate of 15 per cent by volume. Permaculturists and manufacturers recommend a ratio of 10 per cent to 20 per cent activated biochar to organic compost (or soil), as biochar is known to attract and retain both water and essential nutrients.

Robert Lavoie, founder of AirTerra Biochar in Alberta recommends adding a small amount of flour to biochar as a carbohydrate source for microbes to munch on, along with rainwater (or de-gassed tap water), to compost (or castings), to kick-start inoculation (activation). I contacted Robert to ask if he had a carb recommendation other than flour, as I was concerned that indoors, in an artificial growing environment, moist flour might lead to mould.

Robert suggested that we replace flour with a small amount of unsulphured molasses dissolved in rainwater, to moisten the worm casting-enriched biochar. I followed his advice and within two weeks was rewarded with a bin full of beautifully bloomed biochar, well on its way to its forever home in our gardens.

But I couldn’t stop there, soil biology junkie that I am. I contacted Christina Nikolic, a certified organic land care professional and Gaia College instructor, to solicit her thoughts on adding a native, preferably soluble, version of complete organic fertilizer (COF).

Christina told me that she too uses unsulphured molasses as a carbohydrate source for microbes, and suggested that I also add Tofino Kelp, a fermented liquid kelp fertilizer-probiotic hybrid, and Sea-Crop, a concentration of over 80 natural source minerals and active organic substances from the deep sea, to my biochar mixture.

Christina is an organic soil biology guru of sorts and didn’t seem at all critical of my non-conventional seed starting practices. Of course then, I liked her instantly.

I am hopeful that I am on the right track with my super-charged seed starting “soilution,” but only time will tell. The wild card of course is the artificial environment. To that end, I am running side-by-side trials, comparing the activated biochar-charged medium against a control batch of my regular professional mix plus worm castings. I promise full disclosure.

Competitive adsorption of Dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and Di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP … – WUR

6 March, 2022
 

Phthalates (PAEs) often exist simultaneously in contaminated soil and wastewater systems, and their adsorption to biochar might impact their behavior in the environment. So far, the competitive adsorption of PAEs to biochar has not been reported. In this study, the competitive adsorption of Dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and Di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP) on corncob biochar (fresh and oxidized) was investigated, and experiments of kinetics, isotherms, and thermodynamics were conducted. Langmuir and Freundlich models, pseudo-first-order and second-order kinetic models were used to simulate the experimental data. In the mono PAEs component systems, the biochar showed significantly greater adsorption capacity for DEHP (11.8–16.16 mg g−1) than for DBP (9.86–13.2 mg g−1). The oxidized biochar has higher adsorption capacities than the fresh one. Moreover, a fast adsorption rate for DBP was observed, which can be attributed to the smaller size and shorter carbon chains in the DBP molecule, resulting in faster diffusion into the biochar pores. In the binary PAEs component systems, competition between DEHP and DBP in their adsorption to the biochars was observed, and DEHP (11.7–15.0 mg g−1) was preferred over DBP (3.4–7.9 mg g−1). The stronger adsorption of DEHP can be explained by stronger hydrophobic interaction with biochar. Compared to DBP, DEHP has a high octanol-water partition coefficient (logKow) and low water solubility. The positive entropy (ΔS0) and enthalpy(ΔH0) values for the adsorption of both DEHP and DBP further indicated that hydrophobic interaction played an important role, even though H-bonds and π-π interactions could also be involved.

To explore the potential of nature to improve the quality of life.

“As the new CryptoSavage Culture begins to take a firm foothold, it is inevitable that there will be psychic bandwidth (and a desire) for a new paradigm regarding the role of the Individual in society. Government and religion are unnecessary in the new Culture. Already, the mantra, “Code Is Law” is whispered by a few. Soon it will be on the lips of millions of CryptoSavages. We can write the primacy of the Individual deep into that code. We can embed it so firmly in to the foundation that it can never be removed. Let us infuse the bones of this new Culture with the greatest gift of the old Culture – the notion that all Individuals are created equal, each of us a flame lit from the eternal and mysterious fire of the Divine.”

Modified biochar as a green adsorbent for removal of hexavalent chromium from various … – X-MOL

10 March, 2022
 

Hexavalent chromium (Cr(VI)) contamination has gained interest from regulatory authorities due to its high toxicity and carcinogenicity. Different approaches have been applied for the remediation of Cr(VI) from aquatic media, with adsorption being the most common method. Biochar has gained popularity in recent years as a cost-effective and greener adsorbent for remediation of heavy metals (HMs) via different mechanisms, including complexation, electrostatic or ionic interactions, and precipitation. Owing to its facile synthesis methods and excellent physico-chemical properties, biochar has been applied extensively for the removal of Cr(VI) from different matrices. However, very few studies have targeted the elimination of Cr(VI) from real polluted environmental matrices, such as soil or water. Therefore, this review comprehensively discussed the potential application of modified biochar in remediation of Cr(VI) from different environmental matrices, starting with its toxicology impacts on flora and fauna. Furthermore, this review has provided a comprehensive state-of-the-art analysis of biochar tailoring technology, modification methods, various adsorption mechanisms, and factors which influence the adsorption of Cr(VI) from different environmental matrices, along with regeneration and reuse of spent adsorbents. Finally, current work focuses on the major gaps in the literature and areas in which further research should be pursued in addition to the effective application of biochar as adsorbent for the remediation of Cr(VI).

六价铬 (Cr(VI)) 污染因其高毒性和致癌性而受到监管机构的关注。已经应用了不同的方法来修复水介质中的 Cr(VI),其中吸附是最常用的方法。近年来,生物炭作为一种具有成本效益和更环保的吸附剂,通过不同的机制(包括络合、静电或离子相互作用和沉淀)修复重金属(HMs)而受到欢迎。由于其简便的合成方法和优异的物理化学性质,生物炭已被广泛应用于从不同基质中去除 Cr(VI)。然而,很少有研究针对从实际受污染的环境基质(如土壤或水)中消除 Cr(VI)。所以,本综述从其对动植物的毒理学影响开始,全面讨论了改性生物炭在修复不同环境基质中的 Cr(VI) 中的潜在应用。此外,本综述对生物炭定制技术、改性方法、各种吸附机制和影响不同环境基质中 Cr(VI) 吸附的因素以及生物炭的再生和再利用提供了全面的最新分析。用过的吸附剂。最后,目前的工作重点是文献中的主要空白和除了生物炭作为吸附剂在 Cr(VI) 修复中的有效应用外,还应进一步研究的领域。从它对动植物的毒理学影响开始。此外,本综述对生物炭定制技术、改性方法、各种吸附机制和影响不同环境基质中 Cr(VI) 吸附的因素以及生物炭的再生和再利用提供了全面的最新分析。用过的吸附剂。最后,目前的工作重点是文献中的主要空白和除了生物炭作为吸附剂在 Cr(VI) 修复中的有效应用外,还应进一步研究的领域。从它对动植物的毒理学影响开始。此外,本综述对生物炭定制技术、改性方法、各种吸附机制和影响不同环境基质中 Cr(VI) 吸附的因素以及生物炭的再生和再利用提供了全面的最新分析。用过的吸附剂。最后,目前的工作重点是文献中的主要空白和除了生物炭作为吸附剂在 Cr(VI) 修复中的有效应用外,还应进一步研究的领域。以及影响不同环境基质中 Cr(VI) 吸附的因素,以及废吸附剂的再生和再利用。最后,目前的工作重点是文献中的主要空白和除了生物炭作为吸附剂在 Cr(VI) 修复中的有效应用外,还应进一步研究的领域。以及影响不同环境基质中 Cr(VI) 吸附的因素,以及废吸附剂的再生和再利用。最后,目前的工作重点是文献中的主要空白和除了生物炭作为吸附剂在 Cr(VI) 修复中的有效应用外,还应进一步研究的领域。

Your purchase has been completed. Your documents are now available to view.

Water pollution caused by the discharge of pharmaceutical residues is a relatively recent environmental issue affecting clean water supply. The worldwide consumption of pharmaceutical products is continually increasing at rapid speed; hence, there is a need to control their concentration in the water resources. Recently, biochar has attracted significant exploration in wastewater treatment due to its abundant availability, facile production, and cost-effectiveness. Additionally, biochar has demonstrated great potential in removing pharmaceutical contaminants from water bodies indicating that it can be an effective, economical, and environmentally friendly resource for wastewater treatment. In this chapter, the main pollution point sources of pharmaceutical compounds are first discussed. Five most prevalent compounds in the current environment classified based on their therapeutic classes are evaluated along with their associated adverse health and environmental effects. The advantages and disadvantages of conventional and advanced removal technologies for pharmaceutical contaminants from the aquatic system are assessed. The chapter further reviews the synthesis methods of biochar as well as the mechanisms involved in the adsorption of pharmaceuticals, in detail. The current and future prospects of biochar in pharmaceuticals removal are also discussed in the context of biochar feasibility and challenges encountered.

The WASTE Lab: Adding Value to Agricultural Waste – NC State CALS

10 March, 2022
 

When you think of agricultural waste, you usually think of unwanted or unusable materials. Discarded biomass and residues that have no value and can often be costly to dispose of correctly. NC State CALS agricultural waste management professor Praveen Kolar in the Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering and student researchers working alongside him in the Waste Applied in Science Technology and Engineering (WASTE) Lab are rethinking ways to use those leftover materials and valorize them. 

“Our goal is to recycle, reuse, and add value to all the waste that we are producing in North Carolina so our producers are getting the right benefit,” says Kolar. “The whole goal is to make our products competitive in the international market.”

His vision? Creating sustainable and economically advantageous waste management systems. The WASTE Lab relies on fresh ideas coming from the student researchers. Kolar believes those ideas are nurtured by allowing students the freedom to think differently and make mistakes with hands-on experience.

Kolar received his undergraduate degree in civil engineering from Sri Venkateswara University in India and a master’s degree in aquaculture engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology. He worked in the private sector for seven years building aquaculture farms and processing seafood. Part of his job processing shrimp yielded tons of waste and was being dumped into landfills. “That is when the seed was planted in my head on how to actually handle waste,” he says. “I wanted to dig deeper and move the field forward.”

Kolar decided to continue his education in the United States and completed a second master’s in Biological and Agricultural Engineering at Louisiana State University where he designed temperature controlled systems to cultivate oysters. He then went to the University of Georgia to complete his Ph.D. in Biological and Agricultural Engineering and study treatments to reduce poultry emissions.

In 2008, he learned about an open position with the BAE department at the annual American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) conference and accepted a faculty position with NC State later that year. Kolar teaches two courses — Introduction to Food Process Engineering and Transport Phenomena — and directs his lab. 

“My industry experience really helps me communicate to students more effectively because I can bring both the theoretical part and the application part to the classroom.” 

Over the last 14 years,  Kolar and BAE student researchers have developed solutions for multiple types of waste and waste management processes, including animal byproducts, biomass to ethanol, and environmental mitigation. There are currently five ongoing research projects being conducted by undergraduate and graduate students that primarily focus on the use of biochar.

Biochar is obtained by heating biomass in the absence of oxygen. This process —called pyrolysis— changes the chemical structure of the product undergoing the procedure. Waste products used to create biochar in the lab include, but aren’t limited to, manure, paper, cardboard, food and really any substance containing carbon. These materials are treated with different chemical agents before pyrolysis and can be engineered for specific applications.

“Though biochar looks very similar to coal, it’s a very interesting material and it can do wonderful things,” says Kolar. “And depending on the end use, we are able to fine tune its properties, and the application can be a catalyst, an absorbent or a fuel.”

Undergraduate researcher and TEDx speaker Victoria Augoustides is investigating the use of pine bark biochar as an absorbent of the volatile organic compounds found in swine waste. The project, coined “Pig and Pines”, presents a cost-efficient sustainable solution using local resources to improve one of the state’s largest agricultural commodities.

Currently, North Carolina ranks third in the nation in hog production with an economic impact valued over $3 billion.

Having grown up in NC, Augoustides is passionate about the environmental and economic benefits this project may have on current swine waste management processes. “What we’re trying to do is make [the waste management process] more efficient, so that the waste spends less time in the ponds and has less of an impact on the environment thereby improving farm efficiency,” she says.

The unique position for many of the current projects happening in the WASTE lab is the iterative nature and connection each product provides for another researcher’s solution.

Pine bark is one of the primary materials being used in the lab because of its availability across North Carolina. Ph.D. candidate Nitesh Kasera is examining the treatment of agricultural waste systems by adding nitrogen to pine bark biochar so it can selectively attract nitrate and phosphorus. In turn, Autumn Sylvestri is using Kasera’s biochar to valorize alternative uses for lignin, normally an unusable byproduct of pine bark.

“The whole idea is to make every component of the ag supply chain economically viable,” says Kolar. Solutions being developed in the WASTE Lab not only boost the economic impact for growers, they also reduce and/or eliminate harmful effects on the surrounding environment and remain carbon neutral. “What we do is based on what we think is appropriate from an environmental, ecological and climate change perspective, and then all of our products or activities are in line with that.” 

Kolar’s approach to engineering solutions is key to addressing global grand challenges. “Concepts are concepts until we apply them,” he adds.

Enabling students to test their theories in a collaborative space while receiving support from faculty improves research coming from the university, and all of the student researchers in Kolar’s lab agree. 

When asked what he thinks would be of value for the next generations of researchers to know, Kolar says, “It’s a great time to be an engineer. There are a lot of opportunities to move this field forward, and with the advent of machine learning and robotics, I think we will be doing great things in the next five to 10 years.”

According to this, in conjunction with other EU legislation, the use of biochar is permitted in Europe. In Australia, Canada and New Zealand, vegetable carbon from plants is allowed to be used in the food industry, while the use of vegetable carbon is banned in the United States.

Pharmaceutical companies are introducing plant-based vegetable carbon with active ingredients that have medicinal properties such as cleansing and detoxifying properties. After biochar is approved by the EU, food additive manufacturers are likely to step up production efforts to introduce plant-based biochar. Biochar is also used as activated charcoal in cosmetic products such as face masks and whitening toothpaste.

Vegetable Carbon Market: Dynamics

The use of food additives is justified if it ensures food safety, preserves the nutritional value, gives it an appealing color or increases the stability of the food. The extensive use of biochar in processed foods, cosmetics and pharmaceutical applications not only improves the color of the product, but also maintains quality by keeping the product fresh.

Growing awareness of biochar among manufacturers of food, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals has acted as a driver for the global biochar market. User assertiveness towards appealing colors and durable products appears to be a key factor driving the global vegetable carbon market.

The increasing demand for processed foods around the world requires various food additives to increase food productivity, which are expected to boost the vegetable carbon market.

However, the ban on biochar as a food additive in the United States of America is expected to curb the growth of the biochar market over the forecast period. The biochar is an FDA-certified color additive and offers many health benefits compared to other color additives, which ultimately appeals to the end user.

This is expected to provide many opportunities for the vegetable carbon market over the forecast period.

Vegetable Carbon Market: An Overview

Vegetable charcoal is also known under the names of plant soot, Carbo medicinalis vegetabilis and soot. Biochar is an insoluble black food color used in confectionery, baked goods, decorations, cheese coatings, and pharmaceutical applications. The biochar is produced by steam activation of plant fibers, wood, cellulose residues and peat. For health reasons, it is non-carcinogenic, naturally produced and pure.

The use of vegetable carbon in process foods is also heavily regulated and includes national laws that ensure consumer safety. European, Canadian, Australian, and New Zealand authorities approve biochar as a coloring additive, while the United States FDA is still restricting its use across the country. Biochar is usually safe and has health benefits because it prevents bad breath from intestinal fermentation and has also been shown to be highly effective in treating diarrhea.

Podcast: Hemp Feed Coalition Responds to AAFCO Letter – Lancaster Farming

11 March, 2022
 

This week on the Lancaster Farming Podcast, our guest is Morgan Tweet, executive director of the Hemp Feed Coalition, a non-profit organization whose mission is to gain federal approval for hemp and its byproducts as animal feed to create new markets.

Last month, in response to the results the HFC helped achieve in Montana and Pennsylvania, the Association of American Feed Control Officials wrote an open letter to ag leaders and state policy makers concerning the allowance of hemp in animal feed. The letter calls for more research and education and asks stakeholders to move cautiously when considering hemp as a livestock feed.

AAFCO lists three areas of concern — animal health and safety; safety of food from production animals entering the human food chain; and adverse impact of farmers, ranchers and the animal feed industry.

Tweet and the HFC don’t dispute the need for further research and education, but they argue that AAFCO is conflating hemp grain with cannabinoid hemp.

Tweet says hemp grain contains no detectable levels of cannabinoid content. Compounds like THC or CBD are produced in the flower of the plant, not the seed.

Hemp grain was used widely as a livestock feed up until the mid-20th century, but was banned as the cannabis plant was vilified by anti-marijuana propaganda.

Furthermore, the FDA has already granted GRAS status (Generally Recognized As Safe) to hemp grain. But under the current regulatory landscape, it is legal to feed hemp seeds to your children, but not to your livestock.

Granting approval to hemp grain as a livestock feed would give producers a healthy, high-protein option for their animals, and would also open up markets for hemp grain producers, Tweet said.

Carnarvon Energy Limited – Renewable diesel business progress | MarketScreener

11 March, 2022
 

Carnarvon Energy Limited (‘Carnarvon’) (ASX: CVN) is pleased to announce its renewable diesel business as FutureEnergy Australia (‘FEA’), a 50:50 joint venture arrangement with Frontier Impact Group.

Carnarvon announced on 6 July 2021 that it would invest $2.6 million in seed capital towards an initial renewable diesel project which was the first step in an overall strategy to actively reduce the carbon intensity of its portfolio.

Over the past eight months, FEA has been advancing a range of key negotiations, contracts and undertaking extensive on-the-ground stakeholder consultation to progress the first biorefinery project to an FID decision in 2022.

Late last year, world-leading engineering and technology firm Technip Energies was appointed to carry out Front-End Engineering and Design (‘FEED’) for the first biorefinery project. The focus of the first project is the Shire of Narrogin, approximately 200kms southeast of Perth.

A 12- month exclusive option to purchase a 65Ha site outside of Narrogin has recently been secured. Technical due diligence is currently being undertaken on this site, and relevant approvals are being progressed. The initial biorefinery is expected to require less than 10% of the potential land acquisition.

The land size provides optionality to add additional production modules and, subject to further assessment, develop sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and graphene refining capability. FEA’s biorefinery business intends to convert sustainably sourced woody biomass such as construction waste, ecological thinnings and plant-based agricultural waste into renewable diesel using hightemperature pyrolysis.

Renewable diesel can be used to replace conventional diesel without requiring modifications to diesel engines. It burns cleaner and has a lower emissions profile compared to conventional diesel. The high-temperature pyrolysis process also results in the production of high-quality biochar and wood vinegar.

The high-quality biochar can be further refined into graphene, which has many 21st century applications, including the next generation of high-capacity, long-life, fast-charging batteries. The sale of these products adds further upside to the commerciality of the biorefinery. FEA aims to develop multiple biorefinery projects that produce commercial volumes of renewable diesel through net-carbon zero technology and establish a substantial Australian-owned and operated renewable fuels business.

Effect of Biochar type on immobilization of Mercury (Hg) from a Mercury-spiked Soil – gov.epa.cfpub

11 March, 2022
 

Betts, A., G. Millard, S. Plunkett, M. Johnson, C. Eckley, AND T. Luxton. Effect of Biochar type on immobilization of Mercury (Hg) from a Mercury-spiked Soil. 2021 ASA, CSSA, SSSA INTERNATIONAL ANNUAL MEETING, Salt Lake City, Utah, November 07 – 10, 2021.

Mercury (Hg) is a highly toxic metal pollutant that is harmful to both the environment and human health. There are thousands of mercury (Hg) contaminated sites across the U.S. with only a small portion being remediated due to challenges in funding, remote locations with limited access and contamination dispersed over large areas. Biochar is a charcoal material made from agricultural waste which has great potential as a cost-effective remediation technology to both treat Hg and increase fertility to rehabilitate damaged landscapes. However biochar types need to be identified that can treat Hg effectively without adverse side effects. A fraction of biochar is ash with a large amount of salts with the potential to disturb pH and release Hg after rain events and wetting. In our work, we applied a series of biochar types to a Hg contaminated soil mixed with water in rapid screening tests.  We compared the change in Hg release to water chemistry and biochar characteristics to identify successful treatment and optimal biochar type. Our results showed that biochars made from animal manures provided the greatest reduction in Hg mobility while biochars made from plant materials had no significant effect on Hg release from the soil. However, the animal manure biochars also had the greatest amount of ash and caused the greatest increase in Hg release if soil was exposed to the water-soluble fraction without the biochar solid. This indicates a risk of downstream adverse effects if animal manure biochars are not applied carefully. The long term significance of these results are to the development of remediation technologies for Hg contaminated soils and sediments. These results could greatly benefit regional partners with sites that contain Hg as this is a significant step in developing a strategy for Hg remediation in soils and sediments. There is increasing need to address the nation’s many mercury (Hg) contaminated sites and prevent Hg from entering downstream waterways where it can contribute to elevated fish Hg and become an ecological and human health risk.  This risk disproportionately impacts Tribal communities’ ability to harvest fish at subsistence levels, which are protected under established treaties.  

Biochar (BC) is pyrolyzed carbonaceous material utilized for soil amending at many contaminated sites. Biochar can improve soil fertility for revegetation efforts and potentially sequester both organic and inorganic contaminants. However, BC applied to Mercury (Hg) contaminated soils and sediments can potentially release Hg so BC selection and application method need to be done carefully. The water-soluble fraction of some biochars include alkaline salts and dissolved organic carbon which have the potential to increase Hg transport after wetting. To find the best biochar for immobilizing Hg in soil, a range of biochars were applied to soil from multiple feedstocks (wheat straw, douglas fir, white oak, poultry litter, swine solids and a GAC standard) and produced at multiple temperatures (300, 500, 700 and 900 C). Additionally, we tested biochars before and after water extraction to see if the water-soluble fraction of BC can potentially cause release of Hg from the soil. From the experimental leachate, total dissolved Hg was measured as well as dissolved organic carbon, UV absorbance at 254nm for SUVA, anions, cations and pH and EC. Trends of Hg retention or release with chemical parameters and their implication for use of biochars as soil amendments in Hg contaminated soil and sediments will be discussed.


Verde Resources Partners With Rice Tech Nebraska To Develop Carbon Based Soil …

11 March, 2022
 

LA BELLE, Mo., March 11, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Verde Resources Inc. (OTCQB: VRDR) Verde Resources announced a merger and acquisition (M&A) between its wholly owned subsidiary Verde Renewables, Inc and Rice Tech LLC of Nebraska. The partnership includes developing regenerative soil blends with activated biochar for liccarbon farming.

Using compost as the base, and then adding the right amount of biochar and minerals, we can create regenerative compost

Biochar is a carbonized, solid form of recycled biomass through the process of pyrolysis, and is a key component in regenerative agriculture when blended with organic compost in topsoil application. Biochar nurtures a micronutrient environment that enhances soil health and crop yield, while simultaneously removing carbon from the atmosphere.

Rice Tech LLC is based near Lincoln, Nebraska. Its founder, Benjamin Rice, who is only 26, has been a student of the soil and natural composting practices since the age of 14. He has developed, managed, and owned multiple compost sites including the largest food waste composting facility in Nebraska. He has assisted farmers across the Midwest by implementing compost into their soil fertility programs to build soil fertility and increase microbial diversity. His passion aligns with Verde's vision of Going Green and Beyond by delivering high quality compost and carbon rich soil amendments to farmers across the globe that would help revitalize the soil as well as mitigate the climate. Rice Tech's experience will invigorate the development of Verde's portfolio of soil blends, aimed for release in Q4, 2022.

"Rice Tech is looking forward to operating under Verde's umbrella to create real change in soil, climate, and food production." expressed Benjamin Rice.

"With an experienced team, we are really excited about what the future holds, and we are going to advocate how important it is to reevaluate and change our approach to farming. For growers that want to produce healthy nutrient dense food, they will need healthy plants. To get healthy plants we need healthy soil. And if we fix the soil, we fix the planet. Nothing we are doing is a new idea. Biochar, compost, and plant enzymes have been used for thousands of years and their benefits are well known. The difference now is, we have the technology and data to refine these products and produce them to the scale needed to match today's high production farms. With traditional soil health products and practices, it can take decades to see improvement. Verde's products will activate biological life in the soil in year one, immediately reducing the use of synthetic fertilizers. Our products will continue to build soil carbon and fertility year after year, while allowing farmers to maintain high yields and substantially reducing the required synthetic fertilizers and chemical inputs for their crops. With carbon credit income opportunities, along with the reduction in input costs, will be the fastest way for our customers to increase their profitability. With this approach, we can inspire a new generation of farmers to work with the soil and not destroy it."

With growing trends in agriculture for carbon sequestration solutions, enthusiasm over the announcement of the M&A between Verde Renewables and Rice Tech, was expressed by Gary Zimmer, who's known as the "father" of biological agriculture, and an internationally known author, speaker, and consultant.

"I have been in the Biological farming field for over 40 years, and today's agriculture is focused on regeneration of the land and carbon sequestration. By combining minerals with a carbon source, we can make the farm more efficient and resilient, leading to improved soil health and a catalyst for the carbon building process." said Gary Zimmer, who also is the founder of Midwestern BioAg.

"Using compost as the base, and then adding the right amount of biochar and minerals, we can create regenerative compost that tailors to specific farming needs, which can absolutely replace commercial fertilizers. This is the future, and the project in La Belle is just the beginning. I'm pleased to be a part of the Verde project as we race towards Net Zero by 2050."

Government incentives such as carbon credits are now available for farmers and farmland owners who can produce carbon sequestering results from carbon farming practices. Carbon credits are exchangeable towards the measured amount of carbon captured from the atmosphere.

"With Benjamin Rice and Gary Zimmer, we can immediately provide regenerative carbon farming solutions for dairy and agricultural farmland across the Midwest and beyond. This is a significant milestone for Verde's goal of reducing global carbon emissions, in line with the Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) goal laid out in The Paris Agreement." said Carl Craven, Director of Verde Resources, Inc.

Verde Resources has large ambitions towards shaping farming community best practices and principles. The partnership with Rice Tech brings Verde's vision one step closer to 'Going Green & Beyond'.

Biochar could be instrumental to a healthier Grand Valley per Citizens for Clean Air …

11 March, 2022
 

special to the sentinel/Citizens for Clean Air

Four plots at Lobato Farms in Fruita last summer featured plots with compost only, no soil amendments, 10% biochar and compost and 20% biochar and compost. The 10% biochar-compost and 20% biochar-compost mixes produced the healthiest, most valuable crops.

special to the sentinel/Citizens for Clean Air

Four plots at Lobato Farms in Fruita last summer featured plots with compost only, no soil amendments, 10% biochar and compost and 20% biochar and compost. The 10% biochar-compost and 20% biochar-compost mixes produced the healthiest, most valuable crops.

Air quality has been a growing concern in the Grand Valley over the years.

Smoky summers have become more frequent, which is why Citizens for Clean Air (CCA) was founded in 2013. Nine years later, the organization might be onto a solution to decrease the carbon levels in the Western Slope sky.

On Thursday, CCA issued a final report on its first-year study on the effects of implementing biochar into local agriculture at the Mesa County Public Library. The result: biochar-compost combinations have the potential to increase crop productivity in the short-term with the possibility of improving resilience by retaining soil moisture and nutrients in the long-term.

Biochar also sequesters carbon for long periods of time because biochar is not easily biodegraded, reducing the carbon that’s released into the atmosphere.

Biochar is a charcoal-like material made by heating plant matter to 600 to 800 degrees in a low-oxygen or oxygen-absent environment.

“It looks a lot like charcoal and depending on what you’re using for your material, it might look like chunks of wood, but each of those little chunks has all these microscopic openings that can be filled with nutrients and moisture,” said CCA Vice President Kristin Winn. “When you take the vegetative material and you create biochar and put it back into the ground instead of burning it, you’re improving the soil health.”

To the naked eye, biochar is simply shiny, black material, but under a microscopic view, the heating causes pores to develop, exhausting everything except remaining carbon from the material. Those pores can then be used to hold healthier elements for long periods of time.

For instance, because those pores can store water, any farm that implements biochar can operate as normal without using as much water.

Lobato Farms in Fruita was one of the farms to take part in last summer’s study. Farm owner Michael Lobato said the implementation of biochar has already proven helpful.

“It was a good collaboration with Citizens for Clean Air because without them researching that, I wouldn’t have known about biochar,” Lobato said. “It’s helped my farm immensely already, even in my second year, and I only see that improving every year…. The whole idea behind biochar is instead of burning slash piles of biomass, you can use some methods to create biochar and use that in your crops rather than just burning it off.”

If materials such as field stubble, tree trimmings and yard waste can be turned into biochar in a properly operated kiln, the waste can be used to help reduce smoke pollution in the valley instead of being burned in tall, smoky piles.

The study included growing four plots of bell peppers, chili peppers, eggplants and kale at Lobato Farms. The plots included 20% biochar and compost, 10% biochar and compost, compost only and a plot with no soil amendments. The 10% biochar-compost plot proved to produce the healthiest, most valuable crops, followed by the 20% biochar-compost plot.

A $5,000 grant from the Western Colorado Community Foundation’s Dave and Mary Wood Fund allowed the study to take place.

CCA President Karen Sjoberg, Winn and guest speaker Gerald Nelson, professor emeritus at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, believe the study has been worth every penny of that grant so far, as it’s opened the door for a more sustainable future for Grand Valley agriculture and the skies above.

“Biochar is not a new concept; it’s been used for over 2,000 years, most notably in the Amazon,” Nelson said. “Here in the Grand Valley, it could provide a useful tool for our farmers and backyard gardeners, while also offering an environmentally friendly method of changing biomass waste such as tree and bush cuttings to a valuable product.”

The only potential downside of biochar could be cost — Lobato said that biochar can cost as much as $350 per cubic yard — but not much biochar is needed to see effective results, and correctly implemented biochar can be used for anywhere from 1,000 to 10,000 years after being planted.

Sjoberg said that CCA is powered by volunteers, with a dozen assisting in the study last summer. She’s inviting more to become involved in the second year of the study, which will last from the end of this month through the end of September.

CCA volunteer tasks include preparing plots, planting, caring for plants throughout the summer, harvesting and weighing plants, and collecting data with CCA instructions and materials. All volunteers need to bring with them is a pair of garden gloves and an interest in the project.

“It’s good for the soul as well as good for the body,” Sjoberg said. “Also, it’s an opportunity for people to learn some science and invest in a project that’s going to benefit the health and well-being of our community.”

ACT's Freres Biochar CO2 Removal Project Selected by – GlobeNewswire

11 March, 2022
 

NEW YORK, March 11, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ACT, the leading provider of custom market-based solutions for reducing carbon footprints, and Freres Lumber Co., a premier engineered wood products manufacturing company, today announced that Microsoft selected their Biochar CO2 Removal Project for its 2022 Carbon Removal Program.

Founded in 2009, ACT helps companies and organizations around the world reduce their carbon footprint by backing high-impact climate projects that generate renewable certificates and carbon credits. Microsoft has agreed to purchase the carbon removal credits generated by the project, and Freres has committed to investing part of the sales proceeds to research and development around biochar production – among other sustainability initiatives.

“As part of the path to our carbon negative goal by 2030, we are glad to purchase biochar-based carbon removal credits via ACT, from the Pacific Northwest-based supplier Freres,” said Elizabeth Willmott, carbon program director at Microsoft.

This purchase highlights the value of biochar as a powerful and compelling new carbon removal strategy. In addition to its commitment to be carbon negative by 2030, Microsoft has also pledged to remove its historical carbon emissions by 2050 and committed $1 billion toward a Climate Innovation Fund.

“Right now, biochar is an underutilized material that is not fully appreciated in the industry with tremendous potential for carbon mitigation,” said Juan Camilo Escobar, Manager of Renewables and Carbon Americas at ACT. “With Microsoft’s investment, our joint project with Freres will lead to new innovations in biochar production and utilization across many industries. We’re thrilled to take climate action with one of the largest and most innovative companies in the world.”

Biochar is a charcoal-like material created by burning carbon-rich biomass in a low-oxygen environment. Biochar is produced from materials such as wood waste, sawdust, agricultural waste, and forestry residues. It is often disposed of into landfills, but if utilized correctly, the carbon-rich organic material has various applications in a number of areas including: raising soil PH, increasing water filtration and retainment rates, promotion of healthy fungal and microbial populations, and helping mitigate forest fires.

“Biochar production, in conjunction with forestry product systems, provides the opportunity to treat underused biomass in an economic and environmentally beneficial way,” said Kyle Freres, Vice President of Operations for Freres Lumber. “We intend to continue developing carbon reducing byproducts from wood products to help companies like Microsoft achieve their sustainability goals.”

To date, ACT has helped facilitate 145 million metric tons of CO2 reductions across more than 40 countries.

Citizens recommend biochar for better air quality gardening – Ventura Broadcasting Company

11 March, 2022
 

We Bring You Entertainment – For Free!

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KREX) — Citizens for Clean Air want to help address climate change and make a positive impact by reducing air polluting burns. The idea is a plant-burning kiln that creates a superfood for plants called biochar.

“It looks a lot like charcoal and, depending on what you using for material, it might look like chunks of wood,” Citizens for Clean Air Vice President Kristin Winn describes.

Heating plant matter and vegetative waste with low oxygen in a kiln creates the carbon filled biochar.

“Working with biochar doesn’t have to start big,” Cora Dickey reports, “All you need is pure interest and a pair of gloves.”

The first year of testing points to success. Small farmers like Michael Lobato say it’s a great new addition to his gardening toolbox.

“I had seen enough from the experiment to start using 10 percent of bio char in my soil amendment,” Fruita Farmer Michael Lobato attests, “That hands-down gave me greater yields in and better fruit.”

Year two of the study is also sprouting proven results and incentivizing farmers to take the next step.

“The idea is there will be a lot of people to grow vegetables either commercially, or in their backyards,” Dr. Gerald Nelson, PhD mentions.

If CCC can convince farmers, orchardists and vineyards it’s better to keep carbon in the soil than to burn it, the next step may be to apply for grants, set up a kiln at the landfill and sell biochar to local farmers. First, the CCA says it needs more volunteers to keep the experiment growing between now and September.

CCA President Karen Sjoberg says few things make you feel better than watching things grow.”

“It’s not a whole lot of time, it’s a good way to spend the summer,” Citizens for Clean Air President Karen Sjoberg elaborates, “We’re very flexible I know that people have busy summers so you know you can go do your thing and still help us at the same time.”

If you’re ready to grow a green thumb, the Citizens for Clean Air invites you to volunteer at one of its four plot sites this summer.
