Preliminary techno-economic analysis of biodiesel production over solid-biochar

1 April, 2020
 

This study suggests the economic potential of biochar-based biodiesel production by conducting the techno-economic analysis. The itemized cost estimation was performed by categorizing biochar production facility and biodiesel conversion plants for 30,000 ton y−1 of biodiesel production capacity. The result of sensitivity analysis shows the methanol and waste cooking oil (WCO) costs are significantly sensitive to determine a unit biodiesel production cost. When the biodiesel selling price was 1.70 $ kg−1, the discounted payback period was varied from 1.91 (not discounted) to 2.06 years (10% discounted). In addition, the break-even price of biodiesel was calculated to 1.55 $ kg−1 when the discount rate was 10%. It means that this technology is to be feasible because of commercial diesel price (0.97 to 1.88 $ kg−1). The consideration of tax exemption and subsidy for biodiesel can be good option to supply WCO based energy production.

4 city-developed startup projects named among finalists for Hult Prize Southeast Asia 2020

1 April, 2020
 

Four startup projects in Da Nang have been named among 17 finalists for the Hult Prize Southeast Asia Regional 2020. They are Biochar, Rebo, Inno – 2ur, and Micway projects.

In details, the Biochar project is developed by a group of students from the Da Nang University of Medical Technology and Pharmacy. Under the project, organic waste will be used to make Biochar products (organic fertilisers), BioFilter (used to treat odor and hydrogen sulfide emissions from livestock facilities) and BioRefresh (anti-humidity materials).

In addition, students from the city-based PFT University, and the city’s University of Economics, have successfully created a virtual reality Biology book entitled ‘REBO’ for senior high school pupils.

Their creation has a lot of graphics, mind maps and drawings, as well as minimalises numbers and letters. Therefore, as using REBO in the combination with the Biology textbook, students can easily learn and memorise the knowledge faster and longer. Besides, REBO has a chatbot application on Facebook Messenger chat platform. After each lesson, pupils can chat with this robot to review their lessons and knowledge.

Developed by students from the municipal University of Economics, the Inno – 2ur project aims to help people with mental disorders.

A group of students from the Da Nang University of Education have developed the MICWAY project on creating BIO-MS and BIO-MS1 probiotic products from quail droppings.

The final round of the Hult Prize Southeast Asia 2020 will take place in Ho Chi Minh City from 9 – 11 April. The two most outstanding startup projects will be selected to participate in the Startup Accelerator programme of Hult Prize.

Biochar as a source of phosphorus for crop fertilisation

1 April, 2020
 

Danish

There is a great deal of attention on climate and greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture, and in recent years it has increased its focus on ways of binding carbon. One option might be to use so-called biochar, which can increase the carbon storage in soil. And that’s far from the only benefit of biochar. According to researchers from Aarhus University, biochar can return a number of important nutrients to the soil, so that future crops can benefit from them. Senior Researcher Peter Sørensen and Associate Professor Gitte Rubæk from the Department of Agroecology at Aarhus University, together with researchers from the University of Copenhagen and the Technical University of Denmark, have investigated to the plant availability of phosphorus in biochars.

“Phosphorus is an important nutrient for plants, which is why we found it relevant to investigate whether plants will be able to absorb phosphorus from biochar,” says Peter Sørensen.

Biochar is charred residue from plant or animal biomass from pyrolysis or thermal gasification. Unlike carbon from plant material that has not undergone so-called gasification, carbon in biochar is very stable and does not convert to CO2 until many years after being returned back into the soil. It simply binds the carbon and thereby gives a significant climate effect. One way of reducing climate emissions from agriculture could be to use, among other things, surplus straw in pyrolysis plants, thereby converting it into gas, energy and biochar for fertiliser and soil improvement in the fields.

“The interesting thing for us in this project was to find out whether phosphorus in biochar is available to the plants, so it can also act as fertiliser”, explains Peter Sørensen.

Biochar can be made from a wide variety of biomasses, and there may be differences from one biomass to another. The researchers used biochars from five different types of biomass to investigate whether there is a difference in the availability of phosphorus depending on the origin of the biochar. The five biomasses were:

“We have worked with five different biochars from different biomasses in this project to test the availability of phosphorus, and to see if there is a difference in availability depending on which biomass biochar comes from. And it turns out that phosphorus is actually available to the plants, but in varying amounts,” says Peter Sørensen.

A laboratory incubation study showed that all five biochar types significantly increased the pH of soil and that biochars from wheat straw, sheanuts and chicken manure had a higher phosphorus availability than biochars from different types of sludge.

“We saw that the soil pH increased significantly when we added biochar in our experiments depending on the dose. The highest soil pH gave the highest phosphorus release. It shows that soil pH plays an important role in the availability of phosphorus, and contrary to what we thought, a high pH value means more available phosphorus,” says Peter Sørensen.

Collaboration partners: The University of Copenhagen, the Technical University of Denmark and DONG Energy (today Ørsted) have supplied the biochar samples.

Financing: The Danish Energy Agency through the EUDP program

Conflicts of Interest: None

After 30-40 minutes, the pyrolysis of the biomass starts. Oct 29, 2008 · I’ve got a charging station on the balcony just outside my bedroom door. Life can only exist by assorted combinations of carbon water and nitrogen, and a few other elements. Biochar regulates humidity indoors, the emissions from indoor toilets are absorbed. Homemade biochar needs to be charged with nutrients before being added to the garden. The research explores the capacity of urine-enriched biochar as a slow release fertiliser, tested in a field trial in Nepal. Fertilizing biochar with urine I've discussed the benefits of biochar before, but as I did more research, I realized that gardening with biochar isn't as simple as taking charcoal and throwing it in your soil. Compost charging The simplest and most efficient method to biocharge your biochar is to simply mix it into your compost piles, stacking functions to benefit both the biochar and your compost. We are constantly expanding our knowledge, and working with new companies and products to explore biochar's expanding benefits, including those related to soil, crops, livestock, water, energy, construction, packaging, and the climate. Solanki and Boyer have investigated the removal of several pharmaceuticals (excluding antibiotics) in synthetic human urine using biochar, but without including adsorption kinetics and isotherm studies (Solanki and Boyer, 2017 ). In this 92-day incubation study, filtercake biochar produced at 400 °C (BC400) and 600 °C (BC600) was used to trace biochar stability when mixed with two soils with different organic matter levels: an agricultural field (1. Inoculate (charge) biochar with various items such as nitrates, urine, NKPs, trace minerals, rock dusk, AMF, specific root fungi (eg RootGrow™) Mixtures of biochar with compost; Various crushed and sieved grades from 0-25mm (eg 2-8mm, <2mm) Supply the biochar fresh and dry, or aged and wet; Energy recovery when making biochar Making biochar in soil pit kilns . 5 cm chunks. 2 mmol L −1.   Charging biochar’s nooks & crannies with nutrients, either organic (e. Sep 01, 2017 · Even peeing on biochar can serve to activate the charcoal, as it absorbs the nitrogen in your urine. urine, manure, compost) or synthetic, can transform biochar into a slow-release fertilizer. Pyrolysis is the most common technology employed to produce biochar, and also occurs in the early stages of the combustion and gasification processes.

DART has been installed on a high-resolution time-of-flight mass Jun 05, 2019 · Our neighbor is a vetrinarian who has her own herd of horses she has nursed back to health. Oct 16, 2013 · The control section of the bed with on charcoal was treated exactly the same, down to the sifting motion, except a small amount of wood ash was added to simulate the small amount of wood ash in the charcoal. How to Activate or Charge Biochar. doi. // So you need very large quantities, and you still need to add plant nutrients (biochar doesn't contain nutrients itself it just holds on to them). Your neighbors make get a kick out of this. On the otherhand, ProsopisJuliflora biochar showed significantlyhigherfixedcarbon(85. Cover and let cure for at least 2 weeks. The long-term benefits of biochar are as a home for microbial life. Biochar Systems for Smallholders in Developing Countries • http://dx. Mahoney, Kate Stetina, Tesfayohanes Yacob, Karl Linden, R. Saturating pore space with water can convert biochar into something that can provide a low-cost, long lasting irrigation pathway. Nitrogen comes from animal urine and dung and liquid offal. applying of biochar-urine slurry . 8% C) soil. Straight from the fire biochar is hydrophobic – it repels water – and its pores are empty. Thus urine could be collected, stored and used to charge biochar prior to application. But, due to these two conditions, if “raw” biochar is worked into soil, you can actually go backward with your plants at first due to nutrient and moisture starvation. ) Toss biochar in chicken coop bedding. From the below information we can see that there is a great potential to tap nitrogen from Urine, as biochar has an affinity to tap nitrogen, using charcoal for tapping the Nitrogen and other elements is a great opportunity to find solutions for many problems. Biochar helps to moderate the wet and dry cycles in the soil. only and soil plus biochar), and two urine treatments (soil plus urine and soil plus biochar plus urine). This is overcome by soaking the charcoal for two to four weeks in any liquid nutrient (urine, plant tea, etc. , 2005). The new source, termed DART (for “Direct Analysis in Real Time”), is based on the reactions of electronic or vibronic excited-state species with reagent molecules and polar or nonpolar analytes. 15 Jun 2015 The urine will be pumped out into a container on a truck and used to fertilize the compost, to charge biochar, or as quenching water for the Kontiki kiln. ¹ Jan 31, 2013 · In subsequent field trials, ACON found that vegetable and cereal crops fared better in plots that were fertilized with biochar and a 15 percent solution of human urine. Biochar thus has the potential to help mitigate climate change via carbon sequestration. It is also known as "Amazonian dark earth" or Fresh charcoal must be "charged" before it can function as a biotope. Apr 01, 2015 · If soaked with biochar and applied to the soil, panchagavya results in greater crop yields. If you have access to wood and steel drums, you can make your own charcoal. This solar toilet separates urine from feces prior to the cooking process. The recovered biochar was further separated from the soil by rinsing with deionized water (≈50 g biochar: 1 L deionized water) and allowing the biochar to air dry. Biochar produced from eucalyptus wood with a large surface area (426. Manure and urine samples from cattle fed in the chambers and manure samples from the outdoor trial pens will be analyzed for methane, ammonia, carbon dioxide and Biochar adsorbents can cost less and sequester carbon; however, net benefits depend on biochar production conditions and treatment capabilities. If you throw charcoal directly into your beds it soaks up the minerals for a time, lowering or even eliminating your yields; however, if you “charge” it first with some minerals and nitrogen, it acts like a reserve in the soil. 3 results in a net positively charged biochar surface in fresh urine, which explains the adsorption of negatively charged pharmaceuticals, i. Charcoal will take up nutrients from your soil, so it’s best to add compost or other fertilizer. 1 Sep 2017 Certain types of Biochar even have the capability of absorbing nutrients of negative charge, called anions. Since approximately 60% of the nutrients  PDF | Biochar produced in cost-efficient flame curtain kilns (Kon-Tiki) was nutrient enriched either with cow urine or with charged biochar that was subsequently blended with manure cation) with the same cold-urine-biochar charging treat-. ) Equal parts biochar and worm castings. The surface charge has a minimal effect on PCM that is neutral in fresh urine and partially negatively charged in hydrolyzed urine. Soil and plant materials were analyzed using acid digestions, sequential extractions, and 16S rRNA gene sequencing. To use biochar in your garden, it’s best to ‘pre-charge’ it with microbial lifeforms. This helps deodorize the coop and it gets inoculated with food scraps and chicken manure.

Preparation of copper aluminum-biochar composite as adsorbent of malachite green in aqueous solution

In this work, CuAl/Biochar (BC) composite was prepared by the coprecipitation method. The materials were applied to remove malachite green in aqueous solution. These materials were characterized using XRD, FTIR, BET and SEM-EDX analyses. The composite material was confirmed by X-ray diffractograms with reflection (002) at 24o and the appearance of new peaks at 1095 cm -1 . The BET result of CuAl/BC composite has larger surface area is 168 m 2 /g than 46 m 2 /g for LDH. The morphologies of composite materials show agglomeration and micro particle size. The result of the adsorption study indicated the composite material follows pseudo-second-order (PSO) and Langmuir isotherm models. The maximum adsorption capacity of malachite green using CuAl/BC uptake is 164.316 mg/g. The thermodynamic analysis indicates that the malachite green adsorption is spontaneous, endothermic. Regeneration study of adsorbent CuAl/BC composite shows after four times reused, it still has high removal efficiency at 89%.

Optimization of biochar additions for enriching nitrogen in active phase low-temperature composting

2 April, 2020
 

This paper examines the effectiveness of combining biochar and compost to test if organic fertilizers can be enhanced by the addition of biochar in the active phase of composting high-nitrogen source materials. Therefore, a small-scale experiment was conducted for 40 days to investigate the effects of nitrogen conservation. Four composting piles including a control without biochar were prepared with 18 kg of shredded immature Panicum maximum grass and 2 kg of Gliricidia sepium leaves. Biochar additions were 3%, 6%, and 9% calculated on dry weight basis. There was no significant difference between treatments for temperature (~ 29.5 °C) and pH (~ 9). A novel material balance approach based on total fixed solids provided the means to determine the actual volatile solid contents, i.e., nitrogen levels during the decomposition process. According to this, the actual nitrogen content of 6% biochar mixed pile (16.203 mg/g) was significantly different to the others by having a higher mean value. Similarly, the mean nitrogen loss was lower (− 5.66%) than measured in the other treatments. Nitrogen loss is low in the biochar mixed piles because of nitrogen adsorption compared with 24% loss in control. The kinetic study on nitrogen postulates entrapping ammonia production and increasing enzyme urease activities. First-order rate kinetics could be used to predict the reduction of C/N ratio of 30 to 9 in 65 days. Hence, 6% biochar treatment was discovered to be the optimum to prevent excessive oxidation or volatilization of ammonia during the active phase low-temperature composting and fix atmospheric nitrogen.

Applied Biochar under Drip Irrigation Can Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions in Cropland

2 April, 2020
 

Biochar soil amendment has been increasingly recommended for enhancing crop productivity and reducing irrigation water consumption while reducing greenhouse gas emissions in cropland. However, for irrigated farmland, different irrigation methods may lead to different results. In this study, the effects of biochar amendment on crop yield and greenhouse gas emissions were assessed with a two-year field experiment in North China. The field trial was established in 2016,2017 and was managed under growth stage of spring Maize. The experiment employed a nested design with biochar soil amendment at application rates of 30 t ha-1 and three different Irrigation ways. So the experiment included six treatments: (a) YB: biochar application in border irrigation with Yellow River water; (b) GB: biochar application in border irrigation with groundwater; (c) DB: biochar application in drip irrigation with groundwater; (d) Y(CK): border irrigation with Yellow River water; (e) G(CK): border irrigation with groundwater; (f) D(CK): drip irrigation with groundwater, respectively. The coupling of different irrigation ways and biochar has a positive effect on improving soil water content. The water content of 0-40cm soil layer significantly increased in DB than GB and YB, which was 6.47%-9.75% higher than that of YB and 7.62%-11.08% higher than that of GB. In GB and YB the emission of CO2 increased, but the greenhouse gases from soil reduced in DB. The coupling of border irrigation of groundwater with biochar made the emission of soil CO2 an d N2O increased 42.50%-46.50% and 10.91%-17.59%, respectively, and YB made CO2 emissions increased 0.42%-3.65%, N2O emission reduced 57.60%-149.21%, and CO2 and N2O emissions of DB decreased 50.14%-59.18%、102.82%-196.42% respectively. In conclusion, different irrigation ways with biochar amendment provided limited and drip irrigation ways with biochar benefits for improving grain yields and reduction of greenhouse gases in cropland.

Fe-rich biochar with multivalent iron compounds was pyrolyzed from sewage sludge.

Phase transformations of iron species during pyrolysis were studied.

Homogeneous Fenton reaction dominated in the first degradation round of 4-CP.

Heterogeneous Fenton reaction dominated in subsequent degradation rounds of 4-CP.

Degradation efficiency of 4-CP could reach 100% at the 5th successive round.

Fe-rich biochar with multivalent iron compounds was pyrolyzed from sewage sludge.

Phase transformations of iron species during pyrolysis were studied.

Homogeneous Fenton reaction dominated in the first degradation round of 4-CP.

Heterogeneous Fenton reaction dominated in subsequent degradation rounds of 4-CP.

Degradation efficiency of 4-CP could reach 100% at the 5th successive round.

Fe-rich biochar with multivalent iron compounds (Fe0, Fe0.95C0.05, Fe3O4, and FeAl2O4) pyrolyzed from sludge cake conditioned with Fenton's reagent and red mud was utilized as an efficient Fenton catalyst for the degradation of 4-chlorophenol (4-CP). Effects of pyrolysis temperature and sludge conditioner composition on the transformation of iron compounds were studied. Both homogeneous Fenton reaction initiated by Fe2+ leached from both low-valent Fe0 and Fe0.95C0.05, and heterogeneous Fenton reaction initiated by solid iron phases of Fe3O4 and FeAl2O4 were revealed to contribute to the degradation of 4-CP. The removal efficiency of 4-CP remained 100% after five successive degradation rounds. The homogeneous Fenton reaction mainly works in the first degradation round, and the heterogeneous Fenton reaction dominates in subsequent degradation rounds. The findings of this study suggest that sewage sludge derived Fe-rich biochar could be utilized as an efficient Fenton catalyst for recalcitrant organics degradation.

Exploring U-M’s Opportunities Around the World

Written by Nardy Baeza Bickel

ADJUNTAS, Puerto Rico—The sun has set in Adjuntas, and the loud mating calls of the coquí frogs reverberate through the town’s narrow streets. In the distance, on the central mountain range that’s earned the town the nickname “the city of the sleeping giant,” its eyes are already indistinguishable.

José Alfaro, on the rooftop of a small building behind Casa Pueblo’s colonial-style headquarters, is having trouble starting a generator. The professor at the University of Michigan School for Environment and Sustainability and his students look worried.

A student feeds pellets made of agricultural waste such as coffee husks into a silver machine made of two big drums connected by a snaking steel pipe. The machine, a biomass reactor, gasifies agricultural waste into a transparent, carbon-neutral gas called ‘syngas’ that in turn should power the generator.

After fiddling around with the older generator, it sputters, springs to life, stalls and rumbles again. The group cheers, relieved.

The stakes are high for this U-M team that traveled 2,000 miles from Ann Arbor to Adjuntas. In collaboration with the local nonprofit Casa Pueblo, they hope to bring energy independence to “The City of the Sleeping Giant.” Retrofitting the generator and setting up the gasifier is one of the key components in a project they will introduce to the community the following day.

The generator was being hooked up to Casa Pueblo’s existing 13kW solar microgrid that already feeds its radio station, movie theater and environmental school. Once it is fully functioning, the generator will add 7-10kW to the microgrid and will serve as a prototype and research and education tool for the community.

For Adjuntas’ residents—close to 20,000, including neighboring towns—new power sources can’t come fast enough. In September 2017, Hurricane Maria left most of the island in the dark. When a team from U-M visited in 2018, many businesses and homes still had no reliable power. In January, a 6.4-magnitude earthquake severely damaged Costa Sur, one of Puerto Rico’s largest power plants, located on the island’s south side. The disaster left two-thirds of the utility’s clients without power for weeks.

The gasifier installation marks the culmination of the second phase of the project, which launched after Hurricane Maria devastated the island in September 2017. At the time, SEAS professor Ivette Perfecto and John Vandermeer, professor of ecology and evolutionary biology, were looking for ways to help Casa Pueblo. The nonprofit was running several renewable energy projects in the region.

In 2018, with seed funds from SEAS and a $200,000 grant from U-M’s Graham Sustainability Institute, Alfaro and Perfecto decided to find out. Alfaro oversaw the gasifier and energy production; Perfecto and Vandermeer would lead agricultural research in collaboration with Universidad de Puerto Rico, Utuado. That year, a U-M group traveled to Utuado, 66 miles from San Juan and 13 miles from Adjuntas, to build and test a gasifier prototype, pelletizing biomass and testing soil (check out that story).

Back in Ann Arbor, Alfaro spent the next year building two more gasifiers, including the one destined for Casa Pueblo in Adjuntas in 2020.

SEAS graduate student Julia Magee, who has a bachelor’s degree in materials science and engineering from Cornell University, was curious to see how renewable energy projects could work in a decentralized environment. She joined the U-M program after talking to Michelle Farhat, one of the students who built the first prototype in Utuado in 2018.

 

Magee soon was in charge of getting the gasifier to work as it should and studying the composition of the gas it produced. She worked with Alfaro to modify the gasifier before shipping it to Adjuntas and helped build the second one, which is still in Ann Arbor.

“I had a degree in engineering, but I didn’t feel like I knew how to build anything with my hands,” Magee said. “I had to take classes at Maker Works, a local makerspace, on welding and plasma cutting and angle grinding. I never imagined I’d be gaining those types of skills. It was really exciting to actually fix some things and work on electronics.”

Building the gasifier units from scratch was a logical financial step to ensure they were cost-effective and affordable. A commercial gasifier costs around $70,000, compared to the $20,000 in materials and shipping for the one now sitting atop Casa Pueblo.

“We wanted to make sure that the students learned how to build one. We’re training them to do everything from wire connections to welding to design,” Alfaro said. “This is an opportunity to transfer the knowledge to the community and I know that if I can build a gasifier, I can teach people how to build one as well.”

About a year ago, Casa Pueblo announced it would be working with the Honnold Foundation and the electric car company Rivian to power the entire business district in downtown Adjuntas.

In Adjuntas last week, they measured rooftops and inventoried solar panels with the help of drone footage.

They presented their findings to Massol-Deyá, who will work with Alfaro and community business owners to determine the appropriate final scenario.

Barr had always been interested in climate modeling since starting his degree in climate and space sciences and engineering at U-M’s College of Engineering. But he realized he wanted not only to model but to find solutions to sustainability and climate change issues.

“I found it interesting and technically challenging and it allowed me to grow. At SEAS, you can have a direct impact in a community like this. We get to work on all these models that are sort of the background of what’s being done. And it was really great getting that face time and meeting the stakeholders here.”

For Raheel, an international student from Pakistan, studying in Michigan but being able to work in Puerto Rico helped with her interest in working with different communities and cultures.

“I think the most experience in renewable energy I would get is in the United States, but if I get a job in Africa or Asia, I would definitely go just for the experience of the culture,” she said. “As for Puerto Rico … the culture, I really enjoyed it. It reminded me of home.

“And to other students: Don’t restrict yourselves to Ann Arbor or the United States. There’s a whole lot of opportunities all over the world and a whole lot of interactions with different cultures, languages and foods. Do not restrict yourselves. Take your chance. You can do it.”

Casa Pueblo’s research coffee farm is a 15-minute uphill drive into the mountains. It’s also where the solar-powered radio station antenna is located. The five-acre plot is where master’s student Juan Jhong Chung and research lab associate Koralis Reyes started an experiment last summer to study whether the biochar, the gasifier byproduct, can help improve plant productivity. Jhong Chung also spent last summer measuring how much biomass—all agricultural waste such as tree branches and coffee husks—could be available to feed the gasifier.

The farm is one of two locations where biochar experiments are taking place, Jhong Chung said. Originally from Ica, Peru, he spent seven years in Boston as a software engineer before joining the SEAS program.

“I decided to come to SEAS to change careers because I really wanted to put together my passion for technology with my passion for the environment,” he said. “This project definitely helped me a lot, to grow not only as a student but as a person.

I had to meet with community members, farmers, University of Puerto Rico students, basically with a whole ecosystem of collaborators trying to have an impact in their community. This experience taught me a lot as a student and helped me grow as a leader. I was in Utuado for three months having to figure out things on my own whenever something needed to get done for the project.”

“We’re trying to use the agricultural waste to produce energy, and then use that biochar to improve farming,” said Reyes, the research assistant who works in Puerto Rico. “This closes the circular economy and helps us take advantage of the natural resources we have at hand.”

The morning after their successful trial, the U-M team heads to elementary school Escuela Domingo Massol in the Vacas Saltillo neighborhood, about four miles from Adjuntas. Casa Pueblo representatives, school officials, parents and neighbors have gathered to introduce the school’s new solar panels and refrigerators for its cafeteria.

“We are very thankful for this project,” said school director Ángel Ortiz Marrero. “We’re very happy we’re Casa Pueblo’s first solar school.”

School cafeteria worker Sandra Ortiz agreed.

“We are always losing power, and sometimes spend up to two weeks without electricity,” she said. “Now, we’ll be able to have the food refrigerated, and with this system we’ll be able to have all the energy we need in the school.”

“Most importantly, we didn’t come and ‘parachute’ in with solutions. We came in alongside what Casa Pueblo is doing and together we worked out how to support each other. I love the idea of supporting Casa Pueblo’s energy insurrection.”

Note from the editor: As with many other University of Michigan projects, this project has been put on hold due to coronavirus. Any updates will be posted.

Lake County Planning Commission to consider small bio-energy plant in Kelseyville

3 April, 2020
 

LAKE COUNTY — The Lake County Planning Commission is set to consider a proposal from the Scotts Valley Band of Pomo Indians to build a small, bio-energy facility in the Kelseyville area.

During its meeting next week, the commission will hold a public hearing on the project, which would consist of a clean energy system that would turn chipped wood and possibly other biomass into synthesized gas.

The system, rated at 100 kilowatts of output energy, would make “syngas” to produce carbon-neutral electrical power, and would also yield biochar, a byproduct of the burned wood that sequesters carbon.

According to documents from the Lake County Community Development Department, the Scotts Valley tribe would house the energy system within a 2,000 square-foot enclosed structure on a 36-acre tribal-owned property located along Red Hills Road, near the “Kit’s Corner” intersection with Highway 29.

“The plant will operate 24 hours per day, seven days per week except when it is shut down for scheduled maintenance,” the CDD writes. “The plan calls for a full-time employee working 5.5 hours per day, seven days a week on a split-shift schedule. The operator will be responsible for chipping feedstock, feeding the hopper, packaging biochar and monitoring the plant’s operation.”

A project overview written by the tribe notes that the power system would create “no emissions or odors.”

Mark Barnes, who lives on a property adjacent to the proposed site, expresses concern in an email to the CDD that the project might create ongoing noise problems.

“We have been listening to the extremely loud chipping project from the PG&E that was allowed at 7130 Red Hills Road,” Barnes writes, noting that the chipping is “extremely loud,” but that he hadn’t voiced a complaint because he thought the work would be temporary. “How large is the chipper going to be when the bioenergy plant is in operation?” he asks.

The tribe’s overview notes that chipping would take place for about two to three hours, five days per week, and that the project would comply with county noise requirements.

The CDD recommends the planning commission approve the project, which needs a major use permit and a mitigated negative environmental impact declaration to be developed without further environmental review.

During the same meeting, the planning commission will consider approving a request from Valley Oaks Land and Development Inc. to extend the approval of the creation of 137 residential subdivision lots within 150 acres of land along Highway 29 near Hidden Valley Lake, adjacent to an existing subdivision in the Hidden Valley Lake community. CDD staff recommend approval of a two-year extension for the proposed subdivisions.

The planning commission will also consider approval of an 18-hole, membership-based golf course project that includes operation of a small private airport at the Crazy Creek Glider Port. Called Brambles, the project was founded by golf course architecture firm J.H. Duncan, and has hired Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw as architects for the course, which would be located between Middletown and Hidden Valley Lake along Highway 29. Record-Bee columnist John Berry wrote in a 2019 article on the proposed course: “The thought that we will have a golf course of this caliber in Lake County is nothing short of a dream come true.”

The planning commission will meet at 9 a.m. on Thursday, April 9. Due to coronavirus concerns, members of the public are discouraged from attending in person and are instead encouraged to submit comments on any agenda item to PlanningComments@lakecountyca.gov, and note the agenda item number being addressed.

Orders to stay at home and keep six feet of distance from others still remain vital to combating the virus.On Tuesday, a panel of local officials and a state assembly member fielded questions on the coronavirus situation in Lake County.Lake County Public Health Officer Dr. Gary Pace on Tuesday called for more extensive preventative measures to be taken in efforts to limit the spread of COVID-19. Dr. Pace said it was “very likely” that the virus is “in the community at a low level” already. “If we really want to get in front of this,” Dr. Pace said, “we probably need to do more.”Gov. Gavin Newsom contradicted President Donald Trump's claim that restrictions will end shortly, adding that parking lots in state parks will close to deter a repeat of last weekend's too-close-for-comfort crowds.

This work investigated the effect of biochar addition to mitigate VFA accumulation and enhance methane production in mesophilic food waste/sludge co-digestion. Different types of biochar derived from agricultural and forestry residues at two pyrolysis temperatures were tested. Results showed that wheat straw biochar 550 °C supported the highest specific methane yield of 381.9 LCH4/kg VSadded and VS removal efficiency of 41.62% among all treatments. Degradation of propionic acid and long-chain fatty acids such as valeric, caproic and isovaleric acids was observed. This also corresponded to an increase in methanogenic favorable substrates including acetic acid (>40%) and butyric acid (~20%) over the control. Consequently, a 24% increase in overall methane production was obtained as compared to control. This demonstrated that biochar addition had positive effects on VFA degradation and methane production which could be a useful strategy to increase the organic loading in co-digestions without the fear of process failure.

Sorption, catalysis, redox reaction, and biological activity of biochar are briefly illustrated, which influence the transport, transformation, and removal of organic and inorganic pollutants in the environments. According to the multi-level structures and structure–application relationships of biochar, specific biochar-based materials and devices have been designed for practical environmental application. The important progress on the functionalization and device of biochar-based materials, including magnetic biochars, 2D and 3D biochar-based macrostructures, immobilized microorganism on biochar, and biochar-amended biofilters are highlighted. The environmental friendliness and sustainability of biochar-based materials, considering the whole cycle from synthesis to application, are evaluated.

Biochar is a stable carbon-rich solid product obtained by pyrolysis of biomass under an oxygen-limited environment (Chen et al. 2008; Lehmann 2007; Xiao et al. 2018). Due to its inert carbon matrix, rich surface oxygen-containing functional groups, high surface area, and developed pore structure, biochar has shown great potential in carbon sequestration, greenhouse gas (CO2, N2O, and CH4) emission reduction (Woolf et al. 2010; Wang et al. 2019b), soil improvement (Lehmann et al. 2011; Weng et al. 2017; Palansooriya et al. 2019) and crop yield increase (Khan et al. 2013; Singh et al. 2019), which received increasing attention from scientists and policy makers around the world. In the terms of environmental remediation, Chen et al. (2008) systemically investigated the sorption of organic pollutants by biochar pyrolysis at different temperatures, and they found that the adsorption mechanisms of biochars were evolved from partitioning-dominant at low pyrolytic temperatures to adsorption-dominant at higher pyrolytic temperatures. Since then, many studies have been conducted to investigate the adsorption performance, adsorption mechanism and influencing factors of biochar as adsorbent to remove a wide range of pollutants, such as heavy metals (Cao et al. 2009; Vithanage et al. 2017; Wang et al. 2015c; Wu et al. 2018; Zhu et al. 2017a), radioactive elements (Chen et al. 2019b; Pang et al. 2019), nitrogen and phosphorus (Chen et al. 2011; Inyang et al. 2015), polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (Huang et al. 2019; Sun et al. 2011), dyes (Qiu et al. 2009), pesticides (Tang et al. 2016), phthalic acid esters (Lu and Chen 2020; Zhang et al. 2016), and pharmaceuticals (Frohlich et al. 2019). Generally, the physical and chemical properties of biochar are largely affected by feedstock, carbonization methods (i.e., slow pyrolysis, fast pyrolysis, flash pyrolysis, pyrolytic gasification, hydrothermal treatment, and microwave carbonization), and pyrolysis parameters (i.e., temperature, holding time, and heating rate) (Cheah et al. 2014; Chen et al. 2015; Chu et al. 2017; Lee et al. 2010; Martin et al. 2019; Uchimiya et al. 2015; Wen et al. 2017; Xiao et al. 2014; Xu and Chen 2013). The application of biochar is highly related to its structure and properties. To produce a “designed” biochar for environmentally sustainable applications, an in-depth understanding of biochar structures and potential applications to generalize upon structure–application relationships is highly needed (Xiao et al. 2018).

So far, there is no precise model to describe biochar structure because of the heterogeneity of biochar structures (physical and chemical complexity) and the presence of inherent mineral constituents (Lian and Xing 2017; Keiluweit et al. 2010; Xiao et al. 2018). A recent study that demonstrated the quaternary structure of biochar, including heterogeneous phases, graphene-like aggregates, nanosized aromatic clusters, and atomic arrangements, with no doubt enhanced our knowledge of the biochar structure and its potential applications (Xiao and Chen 2017). However, in a large sense, biochar still existed as different size of particles (range from nanoparticles to centimeter-scale particles) depending on the size of feedstock, when it was produced. Typical pyrolysis of biomass generates tarry matter with different organic contaminants, including volatile organic compounds, PAHs, dioxins, and furans. Due to its high mobility, small-sized biochar particles are more likely to be an environmental risk than large-sized biochar particles (Aller 2016; Hale et al. 2012; Liu et al. 2018a). Moreover, the size (nano) effect is also reflected in biochar. For example, photochemistry of dissolved black carbon released from bulk biochar can be more photoactive than that of its matrix (Fu et al. 2016). Similarly, biochar was categorized into sedimentary particles, suspended coarse particles and soluble components and ultrafine particles according to their sizes and suspension property. These different sizes of particles had different reactivity and toxicity, of which the soluble components and ultrafine particles may possess environmental risk (Zhang et al. 2019).

Back to the environmental remediation field, however, granular biochar greatly limits the scope of its environmental application. For example, biochar is often known as a “super-sorbent”; however, most of this considerable progress regarding adsorption using biochar was conducted at lab scale with batch sorption (Alam et al. 2018a, b; Cao et al. 2009; Chen et al. 2008, 2012b, c; Lu and Chen 2018). Direct applications of biochar particles will inevitably release fine particles (at the size of nm to μm) into the environment, which may cause potential risk to human beings and the ecosystem (Lian and Xing 2017; Liu et al. 2018b; Zhang et al. 2019). Considering the special properties of biochar, to minimize environmental transport and the associated risks for safe applications is essential, biochar particles can be functionalized and incorporated into devices or engineered treatment facility. For example, to bring biochar adsorbent to practical application, biochar particles can be assembled as fillers into mixed matrix materials such as 2D membranes or 3D hydrogels/aerogels (Ghaffar et al. 2018; He et al. 2017; Jiang et al. 2019; Liu et al. 2019a), endowed magnetic for easy separation from water (Cai et al. 2019; Chen et al. 2011), as well as used as amendment (substrate) in engineered filtration systems such as constructed wetlands and biofilters (Lu and Chen 2018, 2020; Mohanty et al. 2018; Tang et al. 2016; Zhou et al. 2017).

Currently, several reviews regarding the physicochemical properties of BC and its agronomic and environmental benefits have discussed, including climate change mitigation (Wang et al. 2019b; Woolf et al. 2010), structure development during pyrolysis (Keiluweit et al. 2010; Lian and Xing 2017; Xiao et al. 2018), biochar–microbe interactions and its potential benefits in agricultural soil (Ding et al. 2017b; Lehmann et al. 2011; Zhu et al. 2017b), contaminant removal or stabilization in water or/and soil (Mohan et al. 2014; Tan et al. 2016; Xie et al. 2015). Despite increasing research efforts, a strategic review of studies regarding biochars for eco-friendly environmental applications is necessary to cover the theoretical investigation and potential engineering practices (Chen et al. 2019c; Wu et al. 2019). For the safe and high-efficiency application of biochars in environmental remediation, this critical review summarizes the structural features, reactivity of biochar, and further highlights the concept of functionalization and device of biochar and their applications in environmental remediation (Fig. 1). Finally, the fundamental aspects, prospects and challenges for environmental applications are discussed.

Schematic illustration of the relationship among the structural properties, the reactivity of biochar, functionalization and device of biochar and their environmental applications

To facilitate heat transfer and get uniform properties of biochar, large-sized biomass is usually reduced to small size through smashing. Generally, bulk biochars (from millimeter to centimeter) are often employed for agronomic and environmental benefits (Gao and Wu 2014). However, during the carbonization process, small size of biochar with less than a micrometer and even to nanometer, also known as dissolved and nano biochar, is produced. For example, by applying solvent exfoliation and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy, aromatic clusters (nano biochar) smaller than 5 nm were directly observed (Xiao and Chen 2017). The size heterogeneity of biochar has been gradually recognized in recent years and the diversification of feedstock and pyrolytic technic has caused the structure, stability, and potential toxicity of different size of biochar to be extremely complex (Liu et al. 2018a; Wang et al. 2013; Zhang et al. 2010, 2019). Early studies suggested that the size of biochar was mainly controlled by pyrolytic conditions, for instance, grinding time (Abdullah and Wu 2009) and pyrolytic temperature (Kim et al. 2012; Sun et al. 2012), and found the size of biochars reduced with increasing pyrolytic temperature and grinding time (Abdullah and Wu 2009; Kim et al. 2012; Sun et al. 2012). However, these studies focused on bulk biochar with particle sizes on the scale of millimeters and micrometers. The understanding that biochar is a heterogeneous aggregation of particles with different sizes that have gradually replaced the previous recognition (Zhang et al. 2019). Beside bulk biochar, small-sized biochar (dissolved and nanometer-scale biochar) has also been found to be an important component of biochar (Kang et al. 2015; Lian and Xing 2017; Oleszczuk et al. 2016; Saxena et al. 2014; Sigmund et al. 2017; Spokas et al. 2014; Wang et al. 2012, 2013; Yue et al. 2019; Zhang et al. 2019).

In general, there is a structural difference between bulk biochar and small-sized biochar (dissolved and nano biochar) is not only in the particle size, but also in other physicochemical properties. From the results of structural characterization, bulk biochar and small-sized biochar also have differences in the elemental composition, aromaticity/polarity, pH, cation exchange capacity (CEC), surface area (SA), pore volume and zeta potential (Oleszczuk et al. 2016; Zhang et al. 2019). Small-sized biochar has a higher surface area (SA) and zeta potential (Oleszczuk et al. 2016); while, the pore volume was lower than bulk biochar. However, no clear tendencies were noted for the elemental composition, aromaticity/polarity, pH, and cation exchange of small-sized biochar and bulk biochar, which related to feedstock and pyrolytic temperature (Oleszczuk et al. 2016; Zhang et al. 2019). Interestingly, small-sized biochar demonstrated large quantities of C–O–H chemical bond which indicated the existence of phenolic component (Zhang et al. 2019). Due to their unique structure and properties, increasing works have found that the dissolved and nano-biochar possessed significant different environmental behaviours, including chemical and colloidal stability, mobility in porous media, reactivity and toxicity (Fu et al. 2016; Lian and Xing 2017; Liu et al. 2018a; Zhang et al. 2019). In summary, the difference in biochar size leads to different elemental composition and physicochemical properties between bulk biochar and small-sized biochar. Studying the size of biochar is beneficial for understanding the environmental behavior and assessing environmental risks of biochar.

Carbon (C), oxygen (O), and hydrogen (H) are the dominant chemical elements in original lignocellulosic biomass, and account for over 90% of dried biomass (Epstein 1972). In pyrolytic carbon (biochar), the proportion of these elements ranges from 50% to more than 95% mainly depending on the feedstock rather than pyrolysis temperature. However, with the increased pyrolysis temperature, the C content increased, while the O and H content decreased (Chen et al. 2008; Qian and Chen 2014; Wang et al. 2018b). The carbon, oxygen, and hydrogen species within biochars included inorganic components (HCO3, CO32−, metallic oxides, and hydroxides) and organic components (i.e., C–C, C=C, C–H, –C–O–H, C=O, C–O–C, COOH, and –C6H5). Organic component which consists of carbon, oxygen, and hydrogen can be considered as a skeleton in biochar, which formerly consisted of cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin in the biomass and later becomes aliphatic carbon by pyrolysis at low and middle temperature-derived biochars, and results in aromatic carbon at high pyrolysis temperatures (Xu and Chen 2013). Besides, other studies showed that the skeletal carbon within biochars was comprised of amorphous/conjugated aromatic carbon and graphitic carbon (Johannes and Stephen 2009). Later on, the skeletal structures of biochar were shown to have fused aromatic rings by quantitative 13C NMR spectroscopy. Recently, the fused aromatic clusters of biochars were calculated by the H/C atomic ratios and the rectangle-like polycyclic aromatic ring model (Xiao et al. 2016). In 2017, a quaternary structure of biochars was proposed from the microscopic to macroscopic level for high-temperature biochars. The quaternary structure of biochar included atomic arrangements, nanosized aromatic clusters, graphene-like aggregates, and heterogeneous phases (Xiao and Chen 2017). In fact, the carbon-based graphene-like aggregates at different depths are one of the reasons why fullerenes can exist in the natural environment (Becker et al. 1994; Ma et al. 2009).

Additionally, besides the three important elements (C, H, and O), silicon (Si)-rich biomass such as rice husk, rice straw, and corn straw are large feedstocks for biochar production (Ma et al. 2002; Xiao et al. 2014). In the biomass, phytoliths silicon was in the form of silicic acid and polymeric silicon. Silicon in Si-rich biochars represents a major component of the inorganic phase. Xiao et al. (2014) first demonstrated silicon transformation of rice straw derived biochars under different pyrolysis temperatures. During charring, the silicon becomes dehydrated for the low-temperature pyrolyzed biochar and polymerized for the middle-temperature pyrolyzed biochar, and at high temperature, the polymeric silicon in biochar was partially crystallized (Xiao et al. 2014). A mutual protection framework between carbon and silicon in biochar will exist. Silicon dissolution within biochar particles is influenced by the protective interaction between carbon and silicon. Under low pyrolysis temperatures, dehydration leads to a more compact carbon and silicon structure, so that the silicon derived from biochars becomes hard to dissolve. As the silicon crystallizes, total silicon dissolution in high-temperature-derived biochar had a slight decrease (Guo and Chen 2014).

For nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P), even a small proportion of N finally transforms into NOx and releasing to the environment (no P in gas) during pyrolysis, most of the N (45–60%) and P (above 70%) end up in biochar after undergoing a series of thermochemical reactions (Liu et al. 2011). Generally, a relatively low pyrolysis temperature was found to be favorable for the enrichment of N and P in biochar (Cantrell et al. 2012; Raclavska et al. 2015). N and P species in biochar include various organic and inorganic species. For N, inorganic species mainly include NH4+ and NO3; while for P, inorganic species mainly include H2PO4, HPO42−, and PO43−. The availability of inorganic N and P in biochar can be evaluated by leaching tests using different extracting solutions. The chemical state of organic N and P can be analyzed by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). Pietrzak et al. (2010) found that nitrogen could be embedded into the carbon matrix in biochar at 500–700 °C, and the nitrogen was introduced in the form of pyridinic-N and pyrrolic-N as well as imine-N, amine-N, and amide-N. For phosphorus, when biomass converted to biochar, the peak at a binding energy of 134.3 eV (P=O) disappeared; while, a new peak was found at 132.7 eV, which can be assigned to the P–C structure, confirming that the P can also be embedded into the carbon matrix in biochar (Liu et al. 2011, 2017).

In addition to the major elements mentioned above, some other trace elements, such as sulfur and chlorine, alkali and alkaline-earth metals (Na, Mg, K, and Ca), and heavy metals (Cr, Cd, Pb, Ni, Zn, Cu) also exist in biochar. Because of their low content in biochar under most circumstances (mg/kg), the investigation of their species in biochar and how it is influenced by pyrolysis temperature is still limited. However, some elements are important in providing special chemical properties to biochars and, thus, are artificially added or modified to functionalize biochars for special purposes. For example, sulfonic groups (SO3H) are the main functional group in solid acidic materials; the biochar-based solid acid catalyst was synthesized by treating biochar with concentrated sulfuric acid and showed good catalytic performance for the catalytic formation of benzyl acetate (Liu et al. 2013). Mg-enriched tomato tissues were converted into Mg-biochar which has satisfactory phosphate adsorption due to precipitation of P through chemical reaction with Mg particles and surface deposition of P on Mg crystals on biochar surfaces (Yao et al. 2013). In addition, biochar obtained from the pyrolysis of heavy-metal-polluted biomass can be directly used as a catalyst as a result of self-functionalization (Liu et al. 2015). Thus, further works are encouraged to understand their speciation within biochars during pyrolysis, and influence on biochar structure and performance.

Based on whether carbon is evolved, biochar can be divided into two phases, that is, the organic phase and the inorganic phase. The organic phase is resulted from the pyrolysis of cellulose, hemicellulose, lignin and other organic matters in pristine biomass, and is very important in biochar structure evolution, adsorption of pollutants, and stability to oxidation and aging process (Fig. 2). During the pyrolysis process, a series of thermochemical reactions occur, and thus, dynamic phases of biochar evolved with increasing pyrolysis temperature resulted in four distinct categories (i.e., transition, amorphous, composite, and turbostratic phases) (Keiluweit et al. 2010). More recently, the quaternary structure of biochars, from macroscopic to microscopic to atomic scale (i.e., heterogeneous phases, graphene-like aggregates, nanosized aromatic clusters, and atomic arrangements), was proposed (Xiao and Chen 2017). Based on the sorption mechanism, biochar can be classified into partition and adsorption phase. Despite different feedstock, the partition phase and adsorption phase in biochar are mainly dominated by pyrolysis temperature, as revealed by different model organic pollutants (Chen et al. 2008; Chen et al. 2012b, c; Chiou et al. 2015). This transitional change from partition to adsorption phase with increased pyrolysis temperature was reflected in both adsorption isotherm and kinetics, as the sorption isotherms change from linear to nonlinear (Chen et al. 2008), and a fast and slow rate of naphthalene sorption was observed (Chen et al. 2012b). In terms of solubility, biochar can differ into the dissolved phase and undissolved phase. Typically, the dissolved carbon content (dissolved phase) increased with solution pH and decreased with increased pyrolysis temperature, as 14% in 100 °C derived dairy manure biochar to 0.2% in 700 °C derived dairy manure biochar at a pH of ~ 12 (Chen et al. 2015). Similar to dissolved and undissolved phase, the aliphatic labile and the aromatic stable phases show the same trend with increasing pyrolysis temperature, that is, the aliphatic and labile phase are mainly in biochar produced in low pyrolytic temperature; while, the aromatic and stable phases are mainly in biochar produced in high pyrolytic temperature.

Possible organic phase transformation during biomass pyrolysis. A quaternary structure of biochar, including heterogeneous phases, graphene-like aggregates, nanosized aromatic clusters, and atomic arrangements, is highlighted in the red line (Xiao and Chen 2017)

The inorganic phase in biochar, as mentioned before, mainly refers to inorganic mineral components, and the basic elements are Si, S, P, O, K, Ca, Na, Mg, Fe, Mn, and Ni. Possible phase and chemical transformations of several mineral components during biomass pyrolysis have been reviewed by Xiao et al. (2018). Recently, the inorganic phase in biochar plays an important role in terms of carbon–silicon structure and adsorption of heavy metals. A C–Si structural model for biochars, the outermost is a carbon layer (“C1”), the inner layer (“Si”) contains a silicon layer, and the carbon layer recycles again. For low pyrolysis temperatures biochar, the silicon layer can be protected by the outermost carbon layer and protects the carbon from a loss at high pyrolysis temperatures. Therefore, a mutual protection mechanism between carbon and silicon may exist under different pyrolysis temperatures (Xiao et al. 2014). In addition, the silicon also improves the carbon stability in biochars (Guo and Chen 2014).

The other important complex in biochar is the adsorption of metal cations by surface functional groups (Qian et al. 2013; Qian and Chen 2013). The surface chemistry modification of biochar is a perfect active site, such as oxidation (Xue et al. 2012) and amination (Yang and Jiang 2014). Heavy metals as a new fraction could be generated in biochars by a coprecipitation mechanism. Biochar inorganic fraction are characterized as containing SiO32−, PO43−, CO32− (Qian and Chen 2013), and MnOx particles (Wang et al. 2015b), and would absorb heavy metals to form precipitates such as KAlSi3O (Qian and Chen 2013), Pb3(CO3)2(OH)2 (Cao et al. 2009), Cu3(CO3)2(OH)2 (Ippolito et al. 2012), CdCO3 and Cd3(PO4)2 (Zhang et al. 2015).

The surface chemistry of biochar, including surface functional groups, surface charge, and free radicals, is critical to the behavior of the interface between biochar and organic and inorganic chemicals, for example, it provides important sites for adsorption, and catalytic degradation of pollutants (Chen et al. 2015; Fang et al. 2015; Lieke et al. 2018; Zhong et al. 2019; Zhu et al. 2018).

The surface functional groups, which include aliphatic, aromatic, hydroxyl, carboxyl, carbonyl, amido, and azyl groups, could be determined by FT-IR (Uchimiya et al. 2013), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) (Singh et al. 2019), and NMR (Cao et al. 2011). Some studies have investigated surface functional groups on biochars, such as carboxyl, carbonyl, phenolic –OH, and ester groups (Mao et al. 2012; Rao et al. 2011). These functional groups can lead to hydrogen bond by associating/dissociating with protons, and thus generate a series of reactions, such as sorption, pH buffering, surface charge, hydrophilicity or hydrophobicity alterations (Uchimiya et al. 2011, 2012; Xu et al. 2012). The origin of the surface charge on biochars is considered as the dissociation of functional groups (carboxyl moieties) and its aliphatic/aromatic surface (Harvey et al. 2012). Therefore, the surface charge of biochars remains negative over the natural pH value of 4–12. Generally, the surfaces of biochars become more negatively charged under the pH solution above 4 (Fang et al. 2014b). It was found that the transport of biochar particles and ions was influenced by electrostatic interactions, which is regulated by the solution pH (Wang et al. 2013). Free radicals also play a vital role in the surface chemistry of biochar and can be generated during the charring process (Liao et al. 2013; Qiu et al. 2007). Although the situ EPR observations can monitor free radical transitions (Liao et al. 2013), it is difficult to determine the structures of all free radicals. The free radicals in biochars may be bad for the germination of plant seeds, plant growth retardation, and the reason is that ·OH radicals in the aqueous phase from biochar may damage the plasma membrane of a plant (Liao et al. 2013). In addition, free radicals on the surface of biochar could react to some chemical substances, such as hydrogen peroxide, persulfate, and thus promote the degradation of organic contaminants, such as 2-chlorobiphenyl (Fang et al. 2014a) and polychlorinated biphenyls (Fang et al. 2015). This mechanism is mainly mediated by electrochemical analysis and free radicals within high-temperature-pyrolysis-derived biochars may have electron-accepting capacity (Jeffery et al. 2011).

Though cellulose, hemicelluloses, and lignin, and their molecular structures have already well established, lignocellulosic biomass, which mainly composed of these three key building blocks, have no certain molecular structure. Meanwhile, the pyrolysis mechanism of cellulose, hemicelluloses, and lignin differs from each other, and the decomposition extent varies on heating rate, temperature, reactor type, and particle size; as a result, it is impossible to get a precise molecular structure of biochar (Yang et al. 2007). In fact, biochar can be regarded as a super complex which contains various molecular weight compounds connected with different strength of chemical bonds. Depending on whether the compounds in biochar is extractable or not, Xiao et al. (2018) divided molecular structures into two parts, extracted small compounds and large skeletal structures. Thus, the molecular structure of biochar can be revealed using different characterization techniques. For unextractable large compounds (skeletal structures), FT-IR, XPS, Raman spectroscopy, XRD, TEM-EDS, XANES could provide information on different aspects of biochar (elemental composition, crystal structure, functional groups, electronic and magnetic properties, and so on). Moreover, some models based on experimental observation were proposed to describe the skeletal molecular structures. For instance, solid-state 13C nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR)-based magic angle spinning (MAS) techniques [cross-polarization (CP/MAS) and direct polarization (DP/MAS)] have been widely used to investigate the structure of biochar (Le Brech et al. 2016), such as prediction of the molecular structure model of aromatic rings (Hu et al. 2019; Xiao et al. 2016), source analysis for soil organic carbon (SOC) of biochar-amended soil (Song et al. 2019), and investigation on the relationship between oxidative atmosphere and the structure development of biochar (Park et al. 2019). Aromatic cluster models in biochar were proposed based on quantitative 13C NMR spectroscopy (Brewer et al. 2009; Rawal et al. 2016). In addition, a rectangle-like model was proposed to predict the aromatic cluster sizes of biochars from their H/C ratios, and then a good structure–sorption relationship was derived (Xiao et al. 2016). Furthermore, by sufficient dispersion of biochar in 1-methyl-2-pyrrolidone and then observed using HR-TEM, an atomic resolution was achieved and aromatic clusters are directly visible (Xiao and Chen 2017). For extracted small compounds such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and other unknown organic compounds, GC–MS and quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometry can be used. The content of total PAH was found in the range of negligible 3.68 μg/g and varied with biomass sources (Fernandes and Brooks 2003; Hale et al. 2012; Nakajima et al. 2007). Molecular-level composition for a water-extractable organic matter of biochar/bio-oil is characterized by Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometry (FT-ICR-MS). Jarvis et al. (2014) identified boron-containing species in the pyrolysis oils for the first time by FT-ICR-MS. According to the results of FT-ICR-MS analysis, Zhang et al. (2019) found that phenolic component species of a soluble component in the low-temperature biochar were more than those in the high-temperature biochar. Future works need to combine the results of aromatic structures and other small compounds for a comprehensive understanding of molecular structure of biochar.

The reactivity of biochar mainly refers to the fact that it can interact with other subjects. Depending on the subject, the reactivity of biochar is reflected in two categories, chemical activity towards pollutants and biological activity towards microbes. Specifically, the main reactivity of biochar can be divided into three different aspects: sorption, catalyst, and redox. The reactivity is closely correlated with the structural properties of biochar. Based on the quaternary structural model of biochar discussed above, the reactive structure of elements, phases, surfaces and molecular structures and their relationship with sorption, catalyst and redox are presented in Fig. 3.

Sorption, catalysis and redox of biochar and the relationship with its structure

Sorption is an important environmental process, which has a dominant influence on the biogeochemistry of pollutants. Biochar can adsorb many kinds of pollutants, like organic compounds (Chen et al. 2008; Chen et al. 2012b, c; Xiao et al. 2017a, b), metals (Alam et al. 2018a, b; Cao et al. 2009; Qian and Chen 2013), nutrients (Fang et al. 2014b; Mia et al. 2017; Yao et al. 2013), gases (Cornelissen et al. 2013; Creamer and Gao 2016; Xu et al. 2016), as well as microorganisms (Abit et al. 2012; Mohanty and Boehm 2014; Suliman et al. 2017). There are various sorption mechanisms, such as partitioning, H-bond, π–π bond, electrostatic interaction, pore-filling, which depend on both properties of biochars and pollutants (Chen et al. 2019d; Mohan et al. 2014; Lu et al. 2018; Xiao et al. 2018).

In terms of element composition, C, H, O, N are the major elements that form the matrix of biochar, and other elements like Si, P, S show different mass percentages in specific biochars, which play a special or even major role in sorption of specific pollutants by forming sorption sites with different structures that have strong affinity towards pollutants. For example, the sorption of Pb and Al on biochar was attributed to the coprecipitation with P and Si in the biochar as Pb5(PO4)3(OH) and KAlSi3O8, respectively (Cao et al. 2009, 2011; Qian and Chen 2013). In a study about magnetic biochar for mercury removal, it was found that Fe3+ in tetrahedral coordination contributes to mercury adsorption on the biochar (Yang et al. 2016b). For the sorption of some heavy metals, ion exchange may also play an important role in the sorption of biochar (Ling et al. 2017).

There are two distinct phases in biochar: organic and inorganic phases. For the sorption of organic compounds, the sorption mechanisms transited from partitioning-dominant to adsorption-dominant and sorption components evolved from polar-selective to porosity-selective by increasing pyrolysis temperatures which results in increased surface area, pore volume and aromaticity (Chen et al. 2008). In addition, the sorption rates also exhibited a transitional process: from fast to slow and then to fast due to the changes of the organic components from aliphatic to aromatic (Chen et al. 2012b). With regards to the inorganic components, it was found that ash has a catalytic effect on the formation of biochar with more orderly graphitic structures in the pyrolysis process; in addition, deashing after pyrolysis increased the hydrophobic sorption sites which favored the sorption of hydrophobic organic contaminants (Liu et al. 2016; Sun et al. 2013). For acidic SO2 removal, the inorganic fractions like CaCO3 and Ca3(PO4)2 in biochar can transform sorbed SO2 into new inorganic precipitations (Xu et al. 2016). What is more, the inorganic fractions endow the biochar with the liming effect which induces precipitation of some heavy metals and decrease of their bioavailability. For example, aluminum phytotoxicity to wheat plants was effectively alleviated by biochar amendment through surface complexation of carboxyl groups with Al(OH)2+/Al(OH)+2 transformed from Al3+ due to the alkalinity of biochar (Qian et al. 2013).

Surface functional groups make a difference in the interaction between biochar and pollutants, especially ionizable compounds and charged ions (Chen et al. 2019d; Zhang et al. 2018b). The dissociation/association of surface functional groups and the surface charge of pollutants are mainly influenced by the environmental pH, so the sorption of biochar involved with surfaced functional groups is almost pH dependent. Adsorption of the veterinary antibiotic sulfamethazine on biochar firstly increased and then decreased with pH which influenced the surface charge of both biochar and sulfamethazine, and simultaneously, the sorption mechanisms evolved from π–π electron donor–acceptor interaction to negative charge-assisted H-bond (Chen et al. 2019d; Teixidó et al. 2011). The aqueous metal adsorption occurred primarily at the proton-active carboxyl and phenolic hydroxyl functional groups on the biochar surface, and the adsorption increased with the pH in the range of pH < 7 (Alam et al. 2018b). The dissociation/association of surface functional groups will change the surface charge of the biochar. Generally, the surface charge of biochar is negative and decreased with the environmental pH. The sorption of cationic metal ions normally increases with the surrounding pH due to the enhancement of complexation, electrostatic effect and other interactions that depend on the nature of the metals. The sorption of K+ and Cd2+ with different Lewis acidity was attributed to ion exchange and cation–π bonding, respectively (Harvey et al. 2011).

Though there are many studies about the sorption of biochar, few pay attention to the effect of molecular structures on the sorption of biochar because of the enormous heterogeneity of biochar and the lack of advanced characterization technology. The organic matter derived from biochar mainly consists of aromatic carbon, among which the amorphous fractions regulated the phenanthrene sorption by biochar (Jin et al. 2018). Graphene-like structures were observed in biochar by applying combined characterizations (Xiao and Chen 2017), and these structures have super high adsorption capacity for organic pollutants via co-assembly mechanisms (Xiao et al. 2017a).

Biochar is redox-active because there are some electroactive moieties, such as quinones and phenols functional groups, polycondensed aromatic sheets, and redox-active metals, which can accept/donate or conduct electrons. Mediated electrochemical analyses show that the redox-active moieties in biochar and capacities to accept and/or donate electrons vary with the pyrolysis temperatures (Klüpfel et al. 2014), suggesting that the redox properties are related to the structures of biochar.

Some elements, such as nitrogen (N), can regulate the electronic properties of biochar by influencing the electron distribution and spin density through disrupting the structure of inert carbon lattice. There are usually three N species in biochar: pyridinic-N, pyrrolic-N, and graphitic-N, and graphitic-N is more thermally stable and catalytically reactive (Kong et al. 2014). N-doped graphitic biochar can be used as an efficient catalyst for peroxydisulfate (PDS) activation to degrade organic pollutants by two possible reaction pathways. The radical oxidation way was considered to be that electronegative graphitic N induced transfer of electrons from biochar to PDS, which facilitates the generating of free radicals; while, the nonradical oxidation way was put forward as following: PDS was bonded with N-doped sites in biochar to form metastable surface-confined activated persulfate–carbon complexes and then react with adsorbed pollutants in a direct electron-transfer way (Zhu et al. 2018).

The minerals in biochar are complex with many chemical species that are difficult to accurately distinguish, but they have been proved to have an impact on the generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) induced by biochar. Dissolved fractions in biochar (DBC) can generate ROS including singlet oxygen and superoxide under irradiation, and further characterizations suggested that the silicon minerals as electron donors were involved in the generation of superoxide (Fu et al. 2016). The results demonstrate that the interaction of organic phases and inorganic phases may play an important role in the biochar-mediated catalysis.

Biochar surfaces make a difference in biochar-mediated pollutants transformation because there are many kinds of catalytic sites including quinone and phenolic functional groups and persistent free radicals (PFRs) on biochar surface. There are different mechanisms of biochar-mediated abiotic transformation of pollutants. The reduction of nitroaromatics sorbed on biochar was deemed to directly react with sorbed sulfides (Xu et al. 2015). However, the reduction dichlorination of DDT and DDD was attributed to the surface intermediates formed by sulfide and biochar; while, DDE degradation was promoted by the quinone functional groups and graphitic regions in biochar which facilitate electrons transfer from sulfide to DDE (Ding and Xu 2016). Recently, a research of biochar-catalytic abiotic transformation of azo dyes by sulfide in anaerobic environment provided a better understanding of the mediation mechanisms, which the surface functional groups (especially the quinones) transformed sulfide into polysulfides which enhanced the reaction rates of azo dyes degradation by accelerating the electrons transfer (Zhao et al. 2019).

Persistent free radicals (PFRs) on the biochar surface have strong reactivity and have a catalytic effect in the pollutant degradation (Han and Chen 2017). PFRs was considered to be the main contributor to the formation of ·OH in hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) activation by biochar for 2-chlorobiphenyl degradation, and the possible catalytic mechanism is the single-electron transfer from PFRs to H2O2 (Fang et al. 2014a). In addition, it was found that metals or phenolic compounds loaded on biomass can regulate the concentrations and types of PFRs in biochar, and these PFRs can activate persulfate to generate sulfate radicals and degraded polychlorinated biphenyls efficiently (Fang et al. 2015).

The dissolved fractions in biochar (DBC) that are mainly composed of aliphatics and aromatics with quinone-like structures have been tested to have photosensitization (Fu et al. 2016), which can enhance the photochemical transformation of many organic pollutants through the generation of reactive intermediates or reactive oxygen species. DBC can facilitate the transformation of 17β-estradiol via a direct electron-transfer pathway that DBC in a triplet-excited state accepted electrons from 17β-estradiol, which induced the generation of phenoxyl radicals and subsequently the transformation of 17β-estradiol (Zhou et al. 2018c).

Biochar not only enhances the degradation or transformation of pollutants by facilitating the transfer of electrons as a catalyst but also can directly react with pollutants, which will exert a significant influence on the environmental behaviors of contaminants, though there are only a handful of relevant reports in publication so far, among which the surface redox-active moieties are the main contributors to the redox of biochar. The surface redox-active moieties in biochar not only activate some oxidants to produce reactive radicals like ·OH and SO·4, but also can directly react with pollutants via nonradical pathways. In a biochar-mediated p-nitrophenol (PNP) decomposition, about 20% of PNP were degraded by ·OH produced from the activation of H2O2 by PFRs in biochar; while, about 80% of PNP were degraded via directly reacting with reactive sites, probably the hydroquinones in biochar through two one-electron transfers to produce reduced PNP (Yang et al. 2017a). Also, another report attributed the degradation of PNP and p-aminophenol to the role of PFRs in biochar, where pollutants degrade mostly through direct contact with PFRs (Yang et al. 2016a).

The redox activity of biochar plays an important role in the biogeochemistry of redox-active metal(loid)s (Yuan et al. 2017). For example, the As(III) oxidation by biochar was suggested pH dependent. There was no As(III) oxidation by biochar that occurred under pH 3 and 7 without O2; unless O2 was introduced, the As(III) can be partly oxidized by ·OH and H2O2 generated from O2 activation by phenolic hydroxyl and PFRs in biochar; while the As(III) was completely oxidized by PFRs, quinones and H2O2 (with O2) under pH 9.5. This pH-dependent oxidation by biochar was attributed to the varying redox activities of both biochar and As (Zhang et al. 2019). We can conclude that the physical–chemical properties of biochar depend heavily on the structures of biochar based on the discussion above. The in-depth understanding of the structures–properties relationships of biochar from qualitative to quantitative will be helpful to guide biochar application in environmental remediation.

Biochar is reported to interrupt the microbial cell communication via influencing the microbial quorum sensing process. Quorum sensing is termed as the regulation of microbial cell density by signal molecule concentrations such as N-acyl homoserine lactone (AHL) that is generally used by Gram-negative bacteria (e.g., Proteobacteria), and short oligopeptide signals that are often used by Gram-positive species (Yates et al. 2002; Abisado et al. 2018). AHLs consist of five-membered homoserine lactone (HSL) rings containing varied amide-linked side chains. Sorption and hydrolysis of AHLs are two processes that influence the bioavailability and activity of AHLs in natural environments such as soil, resulting in quorum quenching (Grandclement et al. 2016; Sheng et al. 2018). Sorption of AHLs varied with biochars with different structures. The inhibition of AHL-mediated cell–cell communication by biochar prepared at 700 °C was reported to be tenfold more than an equivalent mass of biochar prepared at 300 °C (Masiello et al. 2013). It was found that quorum sensing is pH, temperature, and chain-length dependent ascribed to the AHLs hydrolysis (Byers et al. 2002; Yates et al. 2002). When the environment pH raised from acidity to alkalinity, the lactone ring of the signal molecules used by microbes for quorum sensing was prone to ring-opening hydrolysis, which caused inactivation of AHL molecules (Fig. 4) (Byers et al. 2002; Gao et al. 2016; Yates et al. 2002). Short-chain AHLs are more prone to hydrolysis than long-chain AHLs; therefore, the hydrolysis in a given local environment will change the patterns of signal molecules (Yates et al. 2002). Because of the presence of inorganic phase (ash), the amendment of biochar generally increases soil pH, which may induce hydrolysis of quorum sensing signal molecules, and consequently change the microbial community structure (Gao et al. 2016). The pH-dependent hydrolysis is reversible when pH was adjusted to < 2, yet prolonged incubation times were required to recyclize the HSL rings (Yates et al. 2002). With both sorption and hydrolysis, biochar and charcoal reduce the extracellular concentration of the AHLs, consequently interrupting the modification of cell density by AHLs (Inchagcova et al. 2019; Zhu et al. 2017b). The effects and mechanisms of biochar application on microbial communication in terms of quorum quenching are far from well-known. Although the interaction between biochar and charcoal with AHLs that are used by Gram-negative bacteria has been investigated in some study, the understanding of the interactions between biochar/charcoal with signal molecules secreted by Gram-positive bacteria and fungi is quite limited. Such signal molecules include the short oligopeptide signals that are used by Gram-positive bacteria, as well as farnesol and aromatic alcohol (tyrosol, phenylethanol, and tryptophol) that are used by fungi (Abisado et al. 2018; Albuquerque and Casadevall 2012). Investigations into the quorum quenching effects and the mechanisms induced by biochar and the effects on the microbial community structure are fields that call for further research.

There are several shortages for pristine biochar in direct environment application, such as the weak mechanical strength and difficult to separate in terms of small particles (millimeter to centimeter), easy transportation and sort of toxicity in terms of very fine particles (nano to micron) (Chen et al. 2017b; Liu et al. 2018a; Wang et al. 2013). The size distribution of biochar could be influenced by many factors, i.e., feedstock size, physical crush, aging process (Masek et al. 2018). These inconvenience and potential risks associated with biochar particles can be minimized by several functionalizations and devices of biochar: (1) the magnetization of biochar to endow biochar separable from solution; (2) fabrication of biochar into specific macrostructures, such as 2D membranes or 3D aerogels/hydrogels; (3) immobilized microorganism on biochar; (4) integrating biochar into engineering water treatment system, such as biofilter or constructed wetland. In this section, we mainly summarize and discuss the state-of-the-art of functionalization and device of biochar, including methods for magnetic biochar, 2D and 3D structural fabrication, immobilized microorganism on biochar, and construction of biochar-based engineering filtration systems, and their applications.

Increasingly recognized as a multifunctional material, biochar has been widely applied in pollution control, water purification, and other fields because of the superior properties, such as high surface area, porosity and abundant functional groups. However, because of its low density and small particle size, it is not easy to separate from water, which largely limits its application. An easy and efficient method is appealing to enable biochar as a sorbent to be effectively separated and then without sacrificing its powerful adsorption capability during wastewater treatment. For the very first time, Chen et al. (2011) proposed an effective way to solve these problems by giving biochar magnetic property by pyrolysis biomass with FeCl3 and FeCl2 and enabling it to realize solid–liquid separation. The magnetic biochar was prepared with orange peel as the raw biomass material and magnetite as the objective magnetic medium by chemical co-precipitation of iron hydroxides on orange peel powder and subsequently pyrolysis (Fig. 5). Besides the magnetic separation property, the adsorption capacity of phosphate and organic pollutants by the novel magnetic biochars also enhanced by several times compared with untreated biochars, indicating the magnetic biochars could be a kind of powerful sorbents for environmental application (Chen et al. 2011).

Since then, many research works have been devoted to the synthesis of magnetic biochars using different kinds of methods with various biomass and magnetic medium (Fig. 5b). Several popular methods including co-precipitation (Chen et al. 2011), thermal decomposition and/or reduction (Chen et al. 2011; Haham et al. 2015; Li et al. 2017), and hydrothermal synthesis (Cai et al. 2019; Frohlich et al. 2019; Zhang et al. 2018a) techniques can all be directed at the synthesis of high-quality magnetic biochars. For example, different from pre-treatment (co-precipitation of biomass and iron ions) and subsequently pyrolysis, Han et al. (2015) employed a post-treatment by precipitation biochar with FeSO4 and FeCl3 under base condition to precipitate the iron hydroxides on biochar, and biochar with magnetic iron oxides was obtained by following rinsing and drying processes. Apart from reduction or/and transformation of ferric salt to magnetic iron oxides by pyrolysis of impregnated biomass, microwave heating (Cheng et al. 2019; Noraini et al. 2016; Yap et al. 2017) as well as hydrothermal treatment of impregnated biomass can also produce magnetic biochar (Zhang et al. 2018a).

From the perspective of magnetic medium, iron oxides such as Fe3O4 and γ-Fe2O3, have been studied largely due to their low cost of raw materials (a wide range of ferric salts) and ease of synthesis (Chen et al. 2011; Han et al. 2015; Li et al. 2017; Liu et al. 2019b; Rajapaksha et al. 2016; Wang et al. 2018a). Pure metals such as Fe and Co are magnetic; thus, magnetic biochars can be obtained when they are coated on biochar (Wang et al. 2017; Yang et al. 2018; Zhou et al. 2014; Zhu et al. 2017a). Specially, pure nano-sized Fe, also known as nanoscale zero-valent iron (nZVI), is unstable in the environment. Many studies have proven that coating nZVI on biochar could be an efficient approach to get stable nZVI@biochar composite with simultaneous high reactivity due to dispersive nZVI on biochar (Liu et al. 2019a; Zhou et al. 2014; Zhu et al. 2017a). Removal mechanisms of nZVI@biochar include reduction, surface complexation, and coprecipitation. Other magnetic mediums, such as spinel-type ferromagnets (MgFe2O4, MnFe2O4, and CoFe2O4) (Chen et al. 2019a, b, c, d; Fu et al. 2019; Jung et al. 2017; Wang et al. 2015b) and alloys (CoPt3 and FePt) (Wang et al. 2014; Zhu et al. 2009), when coated on biochar surface via different methods, can also endow biochar magnetism.

The big merit of magnetic biochar compared with unmodified biochar is the easily separable nature. This characteristic potentially endows magnetic biochar to be directly used in pollutant removal from aqueous solution rather than worrying the leaching of biochar particles that may lead to secondary pollution (Li et al. 2020; Yi et al. 2020). A wide range of pollutants can be removed through sorption by magnetic biochar, such as inorganic anions (Chen et al. 2011; Jung et al. 2017), heavy metals (Cai et al. 2019; Wang et al. 2015c; Wu et al. 2018; Yap et al. 2017), and organic pollutants (Frohlich et al. 2019; Li et al. 2017). What is more, the introduction of magnetic components (nZVI, nano-Fe3O4 and -FeO) endows or enhances magnetic biochar with catalytic reduction activity for heavy metals (Liu et al. 2019b; Zhong et al. 2018) and degradation activity for organic contaminants (Chen et al. 2017a; Cheng et al. 2019; Fu et al. 2019). It should be noted that during the synthesis process of magnetic biochar, toxic and harmful substances may be introduced or produced. Future works aiming at greener synthesis of magnetic biochar with higher adsorption and catalytic activity should be attached with high importance.

The membrane is an advanced separation technology that has been widely used in wastewater purification, seawater desalination, and gas separation. The fabrication of biochar-based membrane is another promising strategy to minimize the possible distribution and transport of fine biochar particles without sacrificing its excellent performance, i.e., powerful adsorption capability, during wastewater treatment or soil remediation (Ghaffar et al. 2018). Unlike graphene and graphene oxide that can be easily assembled into 2D membrane through mutual interactions (Ghaffar et al. 2019; Zhang et al. 2018c; Zhu et al. 2017c), biochar is mainly acted as fillers in mixed matrix membrane (MMM) which consists of a continuous phase (matrix) and a dispersed particle phase (filler). Polymers are the most common class of matrix materials due to their rich species, and the simple processability of polymers into MMMs. Generally, the matrix made of polymers could be transformed from the thick liquid into a thin but mechanically strong membrane (phase inversion) under certain circumstances, such as evaporation, drying, water bath. To date, the popular polymers employed in biochar-based membranes included polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF), polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS), polysulfone (PSF) and polyacrylonitrile (PAN) (Table 1). For MMMs, both inorganic and organic type fillers have been investigated, including activated carbon, graphene, metal oxides, and metal–organic frameworks (Lewis et al. 2019). The big advantage of biochar in comparison to graphene and other fillers is that biochar is more sustainable and cost-effective, and thus could achieve simultaneously unique properties and cost reduction.

Based on the property of polymers and synthesis techniques, biochar-based membranes could be fabricated via casting and electrospinning processes from a biochar–polymer mixture. As illustrated in Fig. 6a, Ghaffar et al. (2018) report a facile approach to fabricate freestanding biochar composite membranes consisting of biochar and PVDF. Wood biochars were blended with PVDF to make the casting solution; the resultant solutions were uniformly casted on glass plates with an automatic film applicator. After sequent thermal phase inversion and washing to remove residual PVP, the biochar composite membranes were obtained. The resultant biochar composite membranes possess high mechanical strength and porous structure with uniform distribution of biochar particles throughout the membrane surface and cross section. Compared with pure PVDF membrane, water flux was greatly increased in the biochar composite membranes, simultaneously with the Rhodamine B adsorption capacity and the high retention for E. coli bacterial due to the synergistic effects of biochar/PVDF in the composite membrane. Moreover, after simple physical cleaning, both the adsorption and sieving capabilities of the biochar composite membranes could be effectively recovered (Ghaffar et al. 2018). Several other studies also employed casting to fabricate biochar-based MMMs, and the polymers included PDMS, and PAA. The biochar–polymer mixture could also fabricate to membrane through the electrospinning process. For instance, biochar/polysulfone (PSF)-mixed matrix hollow PS membrane was fabricated by a spinning facility incorporating micro-sized biochar particles in the PSF matrix (Fig. 6b). The results showed that the loading of biochar particles significantly improved the structure of the membrane (surface area, porosity, and hydrophilicity), and improved water flux. More importantly, this biochar/PSF membrane exhibited good filtration regeneration performance with a high recovery rate above 93% for both copper and lead (He et al. 2017).

To summarize, by mixing biochar and polymers as a casting solution, biochar-based polymer membrane could be easily fabricated and the structure and properties could be tuned using different polymers or biochars. The fabrication of biochar-based membranes can have the advantages of biochar particles, such as excellent adsorption performance. As presented in Table 1, typical environmental applications of biochar-based 2D membranes were mainly focused on adsorption and filtration for water purification. Taking advantage of the membrane, good separation for alcohol and water mixture was also achieved (Lan et al. 2016, 2018). Other applications of biochar-based membrane include controlled-release fertilizer (Zhou et al. 2015), and enhanced degradation of organic pollutants by attaching enzyme (Taheran et al. 2017). However, scalable, efficient and topical production of biochar membranes with tunable properties is essential for industrial applications to be feasible. This ability remains a critical challenge. For example, the composite biochar membrane may still bear the drawbacks of polymeric membranes, such as swelling in solvents and/or critical pH conditions, and decomposition at high temperature, which restricts its application areas. To solve this problem, graphene oxide may replace polymer to act as the matrix to form the all-carbon membranes, as shown in Fig. 6c (Yang et al. 2017b). Presumably, all-carbon biochar membranes may overcome the above-mentioned challenges of biochar in membrane applications and allow the application of biochar in more fields.

To preserve the extraordinary properties of biochar-based nanomaterials but further extend their application in more practical and broader fields, macroscopic and recyclable biochar-containing structures have been developed, which may also reduce the environmental release of small biochar particles. In addition to the above-mentioned 2D biochar-based membranes, 3D biochar-based macrostructures such as biochar aerogel are another method for the safer application of biochar. Compared with biochar-based membranes, 3D biochar aerogel possesses more abundant and controllable structures and can be fabricated by different methods.

Current methods for synthesis and structural control of biochar aerogel are strongly dependent on the properties of raw biomass (Table 1). In some cases, shaped biomass monolith can be converted into porous 3D biochar macrostructure by direct pyrolysis and hydrothermal treatment. As illustrated in Fig. 7a, 3D wood-carbon monolith (3D biochar macrostructure) was obtained from pyrolysis of natural wood biomass with simple impregnation and can be used as a high-performance flow-through reactor with a low tortuosity for biomass tar reforming. This is because the 3D biochar macrostructure has many unique properties: open channels are aligned and distorted with a diameter of 5–60 μm, which allows effective gas flow and allow additional mixing and reactions of the gases; the Ni nanoparticles with a size of 20–60 nm are well anchored on the wall of channels by a thin layer of graphitic carbon, which also coats and protects Ni nanoparticles from coking or sintering together (Wang et al. 2016a). Hydrothermal reaction or hydrothermal carbonization (HTC) was also able to produce the sponge-like carbonaceous hydrogels and aerogels using shaped biomass. As presented in Fig. 7b, crude watermelon biomass was directly transformed into 3D biochar macrostructure by a well-established HTC (Wu et al. 2013a); other investigated biomass including lettuce (Wang et al. 2016b) and eggplant (Yin et al. 2016) were also successfully converted into 3D biochar macrostructure by HTC and showed satisfactory performance in water/oil separation, indicating that HTC could be a promising approach for synthesis of 3D biochar macrostructure from sustainable and renewable biomass.

Schematic of 3D composite fabrication with packaging waste-derived biochar and PET waste (Idrees et al. 2018)

In contrast to the above-mentioned directly converting 3D biomass to 3D biochar macrostructure, another alternative approach is the “bottom-up” method that produces the 3D biochar macrostructure from nanofiber which is easily derived from cellulose. This method is flexible and can be applied to a wide variety of biomass as cellulose is one of the most abundant, sustainable and environmentally friendly materials in natural biomass. Moreover, the shape, structure and properties of 3D biochar macrostructure can be tuned using different raw biomass and controlling procedures involving cross-linking reaction, freezing dry, and carbonization in the whole synthesis process. For example, bacterial cellulose is a typical biomass material composed of interconnected networks of cellulose nanofibers and can be produced in large amounts in microbial fermentation. A study consisted of two simple steps of freezing dry shaped bacterial cellulose to aerogels and then pyrolysis, was reported to fabricate 3D biochar macrostructure (Wu et al. 2013b). Owing to its hydrophobicity, high porosity, and mechanical stability, the as-received 3D biochar macrostructure exhibited an ideal performance for highly efficient separation/extraction of organic pollutants and oils. Other biomass such as waste paper and banana peels (Yue et al. 2018), cotton (Bi et al. 2013; Wang et al. 2015a) have also been successfully constructed into 3D biochar macrostructure. Besides, nanofibers could also be derived from chitin (Ding et al. 2017a), chitosan (Liu et al. 2019a), konjac glucomannan (Chen et al. 2019b; Si et al. 2016) and be fabricated into 3D biochar macrostructure, extending the application areas from removal/recovery of radioactive element, antibiotics and dyes to organic solvents and oils adsorption, and supercapacitors.

Similar to the biochar-based membrane, 3D biochar macrostructure could also be obtained using biochar as filler in a composite that can transform to 3D macrostructure. For example, fine biochar particles and cross-linking agents were mixed to get the porous hydrogel, after freezing dry, the 3D biochar aerogel can be obtained (Wu et al. 2020). The as-fabricated 3D biochar macrostructure has good hydrophilicity, rich porosity, water retention, and it can maintain the gel shape without collapsing in the water (soil), thus showing great potential in heavy metals and organic pollutants remediation in water and soil. In another study, packaging waste biochar was ground, sieved and melt compounded with recycled polyethylene terephthalate (PET). Biochar/PET composite filaments of 1.75 mm were produced using a melt extruder and used as 3D print tensile that can be 3D printed to 3D biochar macrostructure (Idrees et al. 2018).

To summarize, 3D biochar macrostructure possesses more attractive properties, such as controllable shape and structure, abundant sites for interaction with pollutants, compared with pristine biochar and even biochar 2D membrane. Moreover, these fantastic characters can be fabricated with different alternative methods from direct pyrolysis and hydrothermal treatment of particular biomass, “bottom-up” method, to using biochar as filler in 3D macrostructure. As a result, the environmental applications was very much extended and improved for 3D biochar macrostructure, as presented in Table 1, which included high adsorption of radioactive elements, antibiotics and dyes with high recycling performance, excellent enrichment and recovery of organic solvents and oils, and long and stable catalytic conversion of toluene.

Bioremediation using free microbial cells generally present low efficiency due to a low concentration of degrading bacteria, easy to lose cells, and competition by the indigenous microorganisms (Chen et al. 2010; Chen and Ding 2012; Fu et al. 2018; Qian et al. 2012). Immobilization of the microorganisms provides a protective environment for the microbial cells to carry out certain functions (Chen et al. 2012a; Covarrubias et al. 2012). The mechanisms of attachment of microbial cells to carrier materials include flocculation, adsorption, covalent bonding to a carrier, cross-linking, encapsulation in polymer gel, and entrapment in a matrix (Lehmann et al. 2011). The carrier materials further perform enrichment of pollutants and nutrients, generating certain hot-spots for microbial degradation of the pollutants. Generally, an ideal carrier material should meet the following characteristics: it is readily accessible, low cost, with a porous structure, good biocompatibility, meanwhile facilitating the growth microorganisms. Activated carbon has been frequently used as carrier materials for bacterial immobilization to enhance the bioremediation efficiency of organic pollutants, and to alleviate the eutrophication (Fu et al. 2018; Lim et al. 2018; Wu et al. 2016). Compared with expensive activated carbon, biochar is more competitive to be a carrier material as it is cheaper and has a porous structure which could provide shelters and nutrients for microbial cells, facilitating the colonization of microbial cells and the formation of microbial hot-spots on the surface and in pores of biochar (Zhu et al. 2017b).

Biochar-immobilized microorganisms are synthesized with methods of adsorption on biochar, entrapment in crosslinking materials, and the combination of the two (i.e., adsorption on biochar following by entrapment in crosslinking materials, Fig. 8a, e, f) (Wang et al. 2019a). Alginate is the most commonly used crosslinking material to prepare the immobilized microbial cells, which are achieved by crosslinking the carboxyl group of α-l-guluronic acid with a cationic cross-linker such as calcium chloride, forming an egg-box model (Fig. 8g) (Katam and Bhattacharyya 2019; Selimoglu and Elibol 2010; Wang et al. 2019a). The beads that are generated from the alginate have multi-functions as a carrier material of microbial cells, including (1) formation of a biofilm composed of the native microbes and the immobilized microbes on the surface of the beads (Fig. 8b), (2) inhibition of the penetration of the native microbes from outside into the beads (Fig. 8c), (3) prevention of the liberation of the immobilized microorganisms into the outside environment (Fig. 8d), and (4) permission of an uninterrupted reaction that is carried out by the microbes (Fig. 8h) (Covarrubias et al. 2012). For example, entrapment of microbial cells in beads was more efficient for Cr(VI) removal than that with the adsorption of cells on biochar and more efficient than that with free cells; the immobilized microbes further preserved high diversity of soil microbes, higher activity of dehydrogenase and fluorescein diacetate hydrolysis (Wang et al. 2019a).

Biochar is not only applied for the immobilization of microbial cells, but also used for covalently immobilizing laccase enzymes from microbes, e.g., Myceliophthora thermophile and Pleurotus eryngii (Garcia-Delgado et al. 2018). The biochar-immobilized laccase had higher catalytic capabilities of antibiotics tetracyclines and sulfonamides, leading to complete suppression of the antibiotic activity of tetracyclines. It was supposed that electron mediators were required to conduct the tetracyclines and sulfonamides degradation, since the electron-withdrawing or bulky substituents associated with a high redox potential made these compounds poorly susceptible to laccase oxidation. However, in the biochar-immobilized laccase system, either with or without adding extra redox mediators such as 2,2′-azino-bis(3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonic acid) (ABTS), enhanced degradation of the antibiotics was observed (Garcia-Delgado et al. 2018). This may be due to the electron-transfer capability of biochar that facilitated the electron shuttle between the enzyme and the antibiotics.

Immobilized microbes overcome the shortcomings of using free cells for bioremediation, with enrichment of pollutants on the carrier material and an enhanced degradation, helping the degrading microbes conquer the competition with the indigenous microbes (Chen et al. 2012a; Wang et al. 2019a). For example, two PAH-degrading bacteria, Pseudomonas putida and an unidentified indigenous bacterium were successfully immobilized on biochar, and showed satisfactory dissipation of PAHs and mitigate soil pollution (Chen et al. 2012a). Cadmium-resistant bacteria immobilized on biochar promoted the efficiency of Cd phytoextraction by Chlorophytum laxum R.Br, increasing the Cd accumulation in the shoots and roots, while enhancing the translocation of Cd from the roots to shoots (Chuaphasuk and Prapagdee 2019). Microbial cells immobilized on bamboo biochar enhanced the degradation of nonylphenol compared with the treatment of the free cells (Lou et al. 2019). A pyrene-Cr(VI) co-contaminated soil was efficiently remediated by biochar-immobilized bacterial consortium containing both the PAH-degrading bacterial strains and Cr(VI)-reducing bacterium (Wang et al. 2019a).

Biofilters (or constructed wetlands) are engineered filtration systems based on substrates (soil, sand, gravel, etc.), aquatic plants and microorganisms that can remove contaminants from wastewater through physical, chemical and biological processes (Li et al. 2014; Lu and Chen 2018). The support substrate in the biofilters has a fundamental role in the growth and development of plants and microorganisms and can remove various contaminants through direct and indirect effects such as filtration, adsorption, chemical and biological transformation (Grebel et al. 2013). The extent of these interactions may strongly influence the system’s behavior and performance, and an appropriate selection of the materials to be used as a substrate is, therefore, an important step to meet the increasing requirement for high pollutant removal performance in the eco-treatment systems such as biofilter. Table 2 presents the comparison of biochar and other substrates in biofilters. It can be found that biochar has high potential to be an ideal biofilter substrate with many attractive characteristics: it is economical, readily available, and capable of removing various contaminants, while at the same time facilitating the growth of plants and microorganisms (Mohanty et al. 2018).

Incorporating biochar into engineered eco-infiltration systems, for example, biofilters or constructed wetlands (CWs), is a promising, easy-operative, and efficient approach which can not only minimize the disadvantages of biochar (small particle size, low mechanical strength) but also enhance the treatment performance of biofilters by taking advantage of the multifunction of biochar (i.e., adsorption, water and nutrients retention, electronic shuttle for microbes). For example, Lu and Chen (2018) first tested biochar as substrates for biofilter with batch sorption, fixed-bed column experiment and constructed biochar-amended biofilters to treat stormwater containing 200 μg/L bisphenol A (BPA). Results demonstrated that biochar-amended biofilters could be a promising approach for enhancing the elimination of endocrine-disrupting chemicals such as BPA from aqueous environments, and the mechanism including both adsorption and microbial degradation (Fig. 9a). Moreover, the structures and properties (physical, chemical, and biological) of biochar can be tuned during the synthesis process, and thus improved the removal of the contaminants through different mechanisms, as illustrated in Fig. 9b. Apart from organic pollutants (Lu and Chen 2018; Ulrich et al. 2017), biochar-based biofilters have also shown improved removal of nutrients (Li et al. 2019; Zhou et al. 2018a, b), metals (Ashoori et al. 2019), and bacteria (Mohanty et al. 2014; Lau et al. 2017), as well as graphene oxide nanoparticles (Lu and Chen 2020).

a Schematic diagram of the enhanced trace BPA and other contaminants removal in stormwater by biochar-amended biofilters (Lu and Chen 2018). b Comprehensive mechanisms of biochar to enhance contaminants removal in biofilters is highly related to their physical, chemical, and biological structure and properties, which could be tuned in the synthesis process

According to the flow direction, there are two types of biochar-based biofilters, vertical flow biochar-based biofilters and horizontal flow biochar-based biofilters. The amendment of biochar in biochar-based biofilters can be either be a mixture with other geomedia or pure biochar layer or biochar module. Because of the strong adsorption of biochar to contaminants (nutrients, heavy metals, trace organic pollutants) and electrical properties (conductivity and electron shuttles), the concept of “biochar-based functional module” could be trialed as a “functional filter” to efficiently remove or/and accumulate nutrients, metal ions or organic pollutants through electrochemical or bioelectrochemical mechanism (Wu and Wu 2019; Xu et al. 2019). For instance, ferric-carbon micro-electrolysis biochar-based biofilter was investigated for its nitrogen and phosphorus removal (Shen et al. 2019). It was found that micro-electrolysis could supply extra electrons for the denitrification. Besides, the galvanic corrosion of numerous micro-scale sacrificial anodes improved the phosphorus removal as precipitation, adsorption and flocculation of phosphorus was observed in anodes (Shen et al. 2019). It should be noted that this concept is only reported in recent laboratory studies and only for nutrients, and field studies regarding metal ions or organic pollutants are highly needed to confirm the positive impact of biochar.

In this review, the update progress of biochar, regarding the structural characterization, reactivity investigation, and functionalization and device of biochar, as well as their applications in environmental fields were summarized. For the first time, structural properties of biochar were discussed at macroscopic and microscopic levels. From the macroscopic view, biochar is made of particles with different sizes including bulk biochar, dissolved biochar and nano biochar. From the microscopic view, the multilevel structures of elements, phases, surface chemistry, and molecular were proposed. The structure and properties of biochar play an important role in determining its reactivity, which consisted of chemical activity, such as sorption, catalyst, and redox reaction, and biological activity in terms of interaction with microbes. There is a close relationship between biochar structure and its reactivity. Particularly, how the quaternary structure of biochar influences the chemical activity is discussed. To overcome the shortages (weak mechanical strength, difficult to separate, easy transportation, and potential toxicity) of direct environmental application of pristine biochar particles, functionalization and device of biochar are highlighted. The synthesis methods and environmental application of magnetic biochar, biochar-based 2D membrane and 3D macrostructure, immobilized microorganisms on biochar, and biochar-based biofilters are illustrated. The developed biochar-based materials and devices afford new solutions to challenging environmental problems.

The full understanding of biochar’s structure and reactivity, and functionalization of biochar and its applications are still wanted. Until now, no undisputed molecular structural model has been put forward for biochar despite some dedicated efforts (Xiao and Chen 2017). This hinders the in-depth understanding of the reactivity of biochar and the functionalization of biochar for environmental application. Many scientific and technological challenges remain and attract considerable research attention. Figure 10 summarizes some of the critical research areas involved to make further progress in the comprehensive knowledge of the relationship of the structure–reactivity–functionalization–application and the development of biochar-based materials and devices for environmental application.

Future research and perspectives for the structure–reactivity–functionalization–application relationship of biochar

More efforts should be made to elucidate the multiple and multilevel structure of biochar; there are two directions to forward. One is the mechanisms of biochar formation that underlie the pyrolysis of complex biomass, and the other one is applying and combining advanced techniques to characterize the structure of biochar. Thus, advanced instruments and proper combined techniques should be used to understand the physical and chemical composition of biochar from both macroscopic and microscopic directions.

The sorption and catalytic performance, and their mechanism of biochar towards a wider range of organic compounds and metal ions should be well studied. Meanwhile, the redox property and its effect on direct reaction with contaminants and indirect reaction with contaminants through biochar–microbe interactions, for example, electron transfer between biochar (shuttle), contaminants, and microbes should be systematically elucidated. Since reactivity is closely correlated with the structural properties of biochar, the reactivity of biochar affected by aging process should also be taken into consideration.

The concept of biochar by design was proposed for years (Abiven et al. 2014) and its large-scale production should be improved with the goal of environmental protection. Eco-friendly and cost-effective approaches to modify and functionalize biochar for a specific purpose are important. Furthermore, integrating functionalized biochar within water treatment plants and soil pollution remediation should be given priority in future research.

It should be noted that most of the studies regarding biochar-based materials or systems are still in the lab scale; thus, more works in field should be paid to. Researches about biochar should change from material or environmental science to environmental engineering. Further scrutiny considering underlying mechanisms and long-term application performance and economic analyses of mature cases are still necessary.

In summary, more attention should be paid to the structure–reactivity–functionalization–application relationship of biochar. In-depth structure elucidation, a better understanding of the reactivity of biochar, precise functioning and long-term field application evaluation are needed. We anticipate the biochar-based materials with intelligent functionalization and device achieve the greatest agricultural and environmental benefits possible.

A sustainable biochar decorated LDH composites adsorbent was produced from a MgAl-LDH precursor.

Biochar-MgAl composite exhibit surface area (441.06 mg/g), micropore volume (0.360 cm3/g) and abundant functional groups.

The B-MgAl composite reveal rapid MB uptake with sorption capacity improved to 302.75 mg/g related to biochar (206.61 mg/g).

Internal pore filling, ion-exchange and chemical interactions mainly involved in MB adsorption.

MgAl-layered hydroxide intercalated date-palm biochar composites (B-MgAl-LDH) functionalized with improved textural properties and surface functionalities were fabricated by a facile co-precipitation technique and fully characterized by various techniques. The B-MgAl-LDH were employed for enhanced aqueous uptake of methylene blue (MB) (Langmuir qmax = 302.75 mg/g at 100 mg/L in 180 min), compared with the virgin biochar (qmax = 206.61 mg/g in 480 min). Higher MB removal is attributed to the excellent hybridization of the two adsorbents which resulted in substantial improvement in surface area, micropore volume, and abundant surface functional groups, facilitating fast and better adsorptive removal of MB from water. The B-MgAl-LDH showed good adsorptive performances of MB at varied pH values (4–10). The kinetic data were best described by the pseudo-2nd-order while the adsorption isotherms fitted best to the Langmuir model. The thermodynamic parameters indicated the exothermic nature of MB adsorption and reduction in the degree of randomness at the B-MgAl-LDH /MB interface. The adsorption mechanism of MB onto biochar-MgAl composite is mainly governed by the surface adsorption and internal pore diffusion along with chemical and ion-exchange interaction as confirmed by BET, SEM, and FTIR characterization after the MB adsorption. Therefore, the modification of date palm biochar with MgAl via co-precipitation method is an effective approach to produce B-MgAl-LDH composite for the excellent removal of toxic dyes from wastewater streams.

Biochar and P fertiliser promoted plant growth.

No biochar and P input, positive mycorrhizal response was observed.

With biochar or high P input, negative mycorrhizal response was found.

Biochar + high P, shoot Cd concentration was below safety standard.

The objective of the study was to explore the influences of arbuscular mycorrhizae (AM), phosphorus (P) fertiliser, biochar application (BC) and their interactions on Medicago sativa growth, nutrient, Cd content and AM fungi-plant symbioses. Applications of both P fertiliser and BC significantly increased total biomass and P and potassium (K) uptake, regardless of AM. When no P fertiliser or BC was used, the shoot biomass and nitrogen (N), P, and K contents in the +AM treatments were 1.39, 1.54, 4.53 and 2.06 times higher than those in the –AM treatments, respectively. AM fungi only elevated the total P uptake by 44.03% when P fertiliser was applied at a rate of 30 mg P kg−1 in the absence of BC addition. With BC application or high-P fertiliser input (100 mg P kg−1), the soil available P was significantly higher than that in the other treatments, and AM fungi significantly reduced the shoot biomass. The minimum Cd concentration occurred in the shoots of alfalfas treated with BC and high-P fertiliser inputs; this concentration was lower than the maximum permitted concentration in China. Although the BC and high-P inputs could eliminate the positive mycorrhizal response, the results suggested that BC application in combination with high-P fertiliser input could not only increase forage yields but also lower Cd concentrations to meet the forage safety standards by the dilution effect.

About Biochar

Biochar is the solid product of pyrolysis, designed to be used for environmental management. IBI defines biochar as: A solid material obtained from thermochemical conversion of biomass in an oxygen-limited environment. Biochar is charcoal used as a soil amendment. Like most charcoal, biochar is made from biomass via pyrolysis. Biochar can increase soil fertility of acidic soils (low pH soils), increase agricultural productivity, and provide protection against some foliar and soil-borne diseases. Furthermore, biochar reduces pressure on forests. Biochar is a stable solid, rich in carbon, and can endure in soil for thousands of years.

Remediation of Lead-Contaminated Water by Virgin Coniferous Wood Biochar Adsorbent

6 April, 2020
 

In this paper, RE-CHAR® biochar, produced by a wood biomass pyrolysis process, which is usually applied as a soil fertilizer, was investigated for a novel use, that was as adsorbent for remediating a lead-contaminated solution. Firstly, a deep physical and chemical characterization of RE-CHAR® biochar was carried out. Then, the adsorption capacity of lead from 50 to 100 mg/L solutions was determined under batch and continuous flow conditions. Kinetics of the batch adsorption process were very rapid and complete removal was achieved within 4-h contact time at both Pb concentrations, using a biochar dosage of 5 g/L. These data were best fitted by the pseudo-second-order model, with the rate constant and the equilibrium capacity equal to ks = 0.0091 g/min and qe = 9.9957 mg/g at 50 mg/L Pb and ks = 0.0128 g/min and qe = 20.1462 mg/g at 100 mg/L Pb, respectively. The Langmuir isotherm model best fitted the equilibrium data at both Pb concentrations, with the Langmuir constant and maximum adsorption capacity equal to b = 11.5804 L/mg and qmax = 4.6116 mg/g at 50 mg/L Pb and b = 2.8933 L/mg and qmax = 9.5895 mg/g at 100 mg/L Pb. Continuous flow column tests showed that adding biochar to the soil of the adsorbent bed significantly extended the breakthrough and exhaustion times, with respect to the column filled with soil only. The Thomas model best fitted the experimental data of the breakthrough curves, with the constant kTH = 5.28 × 10−5 mL/min/mg and the maximum adsorption capacity q0 = 334.57 mg/g which was comparable to the values reported for commercial adsorbents. Based on these results, it can be assessed that RE-CHAR® biochar can be used as an effective adsorbent for lead removal from water solutions even at high concentrations.

This study examined an aquaponic approach of circulating water containing ammonia excretions from African catfish grown in an aquaculture tank for bacterial conversion into nitrates, which then acted as a nutrient substance to cultivate lettuce in hydroponic tank. We found that microwave pyrolysis biochar (450 g) having microporous (1.803 nm) and high BET surface area (419 m2/g) was suitable for use as biological carrier to grow nitrifying bacteria (63 g of biofilm mass) that treated the water quality through removing the ammonia (67%) and total suspended solids (68%), resulting in low concentration of remaining ammonia (0.42 mg/L) and total suspended solid (59.40 mg/L). It also increased the pH (6.8), converted the ammonia into nitrate (29.7 mg/L), and increased the nitrogen uptake by the lettuce (110 mg of nitrogen per plant), resulting in higher growth in lettuce (0.0562 %/day) while maintaining BOD5 level (3.94 mg/L) at acceptable level and 100% of catfish survival rate. Our results demonstrated that microwave pyrolysis biochar can be a promising solution for growing nitrifying bacteria in aquaponic system for simultaneous toxic ammonia remediation and generation of nitrate for growing vegetable in aquaculture industry.

Biochar acting as an electron acceptor reduces nitrate removal in woodchip denitrifying bioreactors

7 April, 2020
 

Woodchip denitrifying bioreactors mitigate nitrate loading from agricultural tile effluents. Biochar is considered as an amendment to woodchips. Research findings are contradictory regarding the effect of biochar on nitrate removal. The current study is aimed at investigating the effect of biochar on the removal of nitrate in denitrifying bioreactors. For this purpose, laboratory and field experiments were carried out. In the laboratory, cylindrical up-flow bioreactors were used that were filled with woodchips and oxidized biochar at rates of 0%, 12.5%, 25%, 50% by volume. The removal of nitrate was investigated at two stages: unaged and aged for 16 weeks. The bioreactors were operated at four hydraulic retention times of 2, 4, 8, and 24 h. Additionally, we measured the concentrations of greenhouse gases in the laboratory bioreactors. In the field, nitrate removal over a 6-year period was investigated in two denitrifying bioreactors, one of which amended with 10% fresh biochar.

The laboratory experiments showed that, on average, oxidized biochar (OB) amendment reduced nitrate removal by 9% in unaged and 13% in aged bioreactors while the respiration was equal or greater. This led us to conclude that oxidized biochar acted as an electron acceptor. In addition, oxidized biochar increased greenhouse gas concentrations.

In the field bioreactors, fresh biochar initially increased nitrate removal. However, biochar became less effective over six years. In the final year, the biochar-amended bioreactor removed less nitrate than the woodchip bioreactor, which was ascribed to the electron-accepting ability of biochar due to aging. In sum, our study showed that biochar's electron acceptability significantly reduced denitrification in denitrifying bioreactors.

Generate a file for use with external citation management software.

Availability of good quality irrigation water is a big challenge in arid and semi arid regions of the world. Drought stress results in poor plant growth and low yield; however, the rhizobacteria, capable of producing 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylate (ACC)-deaminase are likely to improve crop growth and productivity under drought stress. Similarly, biochar could also ameliorate the negative impacts of drought stress. Therefore, this pot experiment was conducted to evaluate the role of ACC-deaminase producing plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) alone and in combinations with timber-waste biochar in improving maize growth under drought stress. The ACC-deaminase producing rhizobacteria, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Enterobacter cloacae, Achromobacter xylosoxidans and Leclercia adecarboxylata were studied along with two rates (0.75 and 1.50% of the soil weight) of biochar under three moisture levels i.e., normal moisture, mild drought stress and severe drought stress. The E. cloacae in conjunction with higher rate of biochar produced a significant improvement i.e., up to 60, 73, 43, 69, 76 and 42% respectively, in grain yield plant-1, photosynthetic rate, stomatal conductance, chlorophyll a, total chlorophyll and carotenoids contents of maize as compared to the control under mild drought stress. Similarly, A. xylosoxidans with higher rate of biochar also enhanced grain yield plant-1, photosynthetic rate, stomatal conductance, chlorophyll a, total chlorophyll and carotenoids contents of maize up to 200, 213, 113, 152, 148 and 284%, respectively over control under severe drought stress. In conclusion, combination of ACC-deaminase containing PGPR, A. xylosoxidans and biochar (0.75%) proved an effective technique to improve maize growth and productivity under drought stress.

Sustainable remediation with electroactive biochar system

7 April, 2020
 

Biochar functionalized with electroactive components is triggering increasing attention owing to its versatile redox roles and tuneable structural configurations. In this review, we summarise and highlight the electrochemical properties of biochars with the help of theoretical, methodological, and experimental manners, and offer new perspectives on electrochemical carbocatalysis of biochars to guide future environmental applications. Electrochemical carbocatalysis is for the first time correlated with the synergistic effects among reactive-active moieties (RAMs), metal contents, defective sites, heteroatoms doping, and conductive graphitic surface within manoeuvrable biochar framework for biochar-involved environmental interactions. It is noteworthy that milder redox reactions including the formation of surface-confined reactive complexes, singlet oxygenation, and direct electron transfer can be properly introduced with specific protocols, thus minimizing undesirable carbon oxidation and enhancing reaction sustainability. Overall, this review presents future research directions on mechanistic aspects of electroactive components on biochar to facilitate its applications in sustainable carbocatalysis and green chemistry.

Biochar, RL, and N are effective in aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbon remediation.

Biochar, RL, and N show distinctive functions on hydrocarbon degradation.

RL and N promote oil degraders and reduce bacterial community diversity.

Integrated application exhibits the highest efficiency on wetland oil remediation.

Decontamination of oil spills from coastal wetland soils requires a delicate approach. A microcosm study was carried out to investigate the impact of integrated application of biochar, rhamnolipid (RL) biosurfactant and nitrogen (N) on petroleum hydrocarbon remediation in a Louisiana coastal saline marsh and their impact on soil microbial community. The soil was artificially contaminated with crude oil and subjected to treatments of different combinations of sugarcane residue biochar, RL, and coated urea. Total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPH) in the contaminated soil were analyzed periodically using gas chromatograph and associated soil bacterial community was studied using 16 s rRNA sequencing technologies. Results showed that integrated application of biochar + RL, biochar + N, and biochar + N+RL reduced 32.3%, 73.2%, 80.9% of TPH, respectively, and exhibited synergic interaction with higher efficiency than application individually. Combined treatments showed distinct functions that biochar increased the sorption of aromatic compounds, while RL and N enhanced the degradation of heavy and light aliphatic compounds. All remediation treatments caused reduction of soil bacterial diversity while RL and N shifted the microbial community to higher abundances of Proteobacteria and Bacteroidetes, respectively. Overall, the findings of this study demonstrate the positivity of applying integrated biochar, biosurfactant, and N treatment in oil remediation in wetland soils.

Biochar has been known to be an excellent soil amendment. However, the biochar yield and its quality are both affected by the process parameter, such as temperature and heating time, and the production method from kiln type used. Therefore, the objective of this work was to characterize the thermal distribution inside the 50-liter kiln at different heating times of the biochar production. The experiments on the kiln with a dimension of 500 mm × 380 mm (height × diameter) including the fuel core with diameter of 115 mm with 5 rows of 6.35 mm drill puncture diameters were conducted. The biochar was produced from 7 kg of agricultural waste corncob. The pyrolysis temperature increased with increasing heating time and it was controlled not exceeding 600 °C by adjusting the briquette fuel quantity. The results showed that the highest temperature was found at the fuel core and decreased in radial direction outwards to the kiln wall. The heating time showed effect on the thermal distribution as well as the biochar yield. The lower thermal gradient and the higher biochar yield were obtained at the higher heating time. The biochar yield would, however, decrease after optimal heating time due to the decomposition and degradation of biochar derived from corncob during the pyrolysis process. The production cost of biochar was also determined. These findings propose agriculturists the optimal heating time along with the production cost to facilitate the biochar production.

Ours uses invasive buckthorn for feedstock and our biochar kiln is fired without fossil fuels. We add our organic fertilizer, coffee skins to charge the biochar with nutrients and add bio-available carbon to the soil. Researchers at North Carolina State University are looking at the "black gold" of biochar to enhance nutrient-poor and droughty soils. Be sure to spread your ash in moderation. The main benefit of humic products would seem to be as a crop amendment, not as soil amendments. Matured – Just like compost, the maturation process can take from a couple weeks to several months Aug 26, 2014 · Biochar made of wood or woody organic matter should not be considered as a source of nutrients for the soil since its purpose is not to fertilize your plants or soil, but to create the opportunities for it to be fertile. Jul 30, 2019 · Attached is a picture from the rep that shows where their other product that doesn't have the stimulus microbes in all kinds of funky living organisms mixed in did for a lawn area. A How to crush charcoal into biochar? Well I can tell you the ways that do not work so well and then introduce you to my newest project. Coast of Maine Organic Products Fish Bone Meal is suitable for fertilizing bulbs, vegetable gardens, outdoor container gardens and trees and shrubs. Biochar retains nutrients in the soil directly through the negative charge that develops on its surfaces. While doing all this it is also eco-friendly and sequesters carbon in the soil for many thousands of years. Another example of pyrolysis is what happens  Mulching with cardboard or paper and grass clippings. Benefits to Soil: Increases water and nutrient retention; Improves soil fertility; Moderates soil acidity  Biochar is mainly used in agriculture to enhance soil fertility, improve plant growth, and provide crop nutrition. • Biochar was applied to food waste compost at rates of 10 and 15% of the feedstock.
