Enhancement of heavy metal immobilization in sewage sludge biochar by combining …

1 August, 2022
 

Heavy metals, including Cd, As, Ni, Cu, Pb, Cr, Zn, and Mn in sewage sludge (SS) are among the greatest impediments to SS application because of their potential toxicity to living organisms and latent environmental pollution risks. In this study, hydrothermal treatment (HT)/alkaline HT combined with pyrolysis was used to treat SS for heavy metal immobilization. The heavy metal characteristics, including total, fraction, and leaching concentrations and potential ecological risks, were comprehensively investigated to ensure the safe application of biochar. The results showed that the heavy metals mainly remained in the hydrochar and biochar. Additionally, both HT and alkaline HT promoted the residual fractions of Cr, Zn, Ni, and Cu in biochar. Furthermore, alkaline HT-aided pyrolysis was more effective for immobilizing Zn and Ni with their residual fractions increasing by 100% and 60% respectively, compared with direct sludge pyrolysis. Moreover, the ecological risk of heavy metals in SS significantly decreased from 57.27 to 30.05 after alkaline HT-combined pyrolysis treatment, contributing to the low potential ecological risk of SS-based biochar. This study provides a promising strategy for converting SS to biochar with improved heavy metal immobilization.

Population growth and higher living standards have resulted in the need for an increased number of wastewater treatment plants, thus leading to large amounts of sewage sludge (SS). The annual production of SS was reported to reach 20 million tons in China and 12 million tons in Europe by 2020 (Chanaka Udayanga et al., 2018; Xu et al., 2014). The treatment cost of SS is as high as 30–50% of the total cost of wastewater treatment plants (Li et al., 2017). The two main challenges for SS treatment and application are its poor dewaterability and the presence of hazardous pollutants, namely pathogenic microorganisms and toxic metals (Li et al., 2018a). In particular, heavy metal pollution significantly prevents SS utilization (Awasthi et al., 2021; Huang and Yuan, 2016; Wang et al., 2021). Therefore, there is an urgent need to develop a safe and effective approach to SS treatment.

For efficient SS treatment, various thermal technologies (i.e., hydrothermal treatment (HT), incineration/combustion, and pyrolysis) have displayed huge advantages for both dewaterability enhancement and pollutant control (Chanaka Udayanga et al., 2018; Li et al., 2018a). Specifically, HT can significantly promote the dewatering performance of SS by breaking down the extracellular polymeric substances and cell walls (Appels et al., 2008). After HT, the separated liquid and solid (hydrochar) can be used to produce methane through anaerobic digestion and to generate fuel-based material (Ahmed et al., 2021c; Xie et al., 2019; Zheng et al., 2020). It has been reported that combining hydrothermal carbonization with post-pyrolysis can convert biomass into carbon materials with high porosity and high carbon content (Bahcivanji et al., 2020; Kundu et al., 2021). In addition, heavy metals in SS are mainly retained in the solid phase after HT treatment (Wang et al., 2016). A similar study reported that HT significantly reduced the toxicity and leachable concentrations of heavy metals (Leng et al., 2014). In comparison to HT, the alkaline HT process (with NaOH addition) further enhances the dewaterability and anaerobic digestion performance of SS (Li et al., 2017). Moreover, alkaline HT of SS has been reported to reduce the leaching concentrations of heavy metals and promote less available fractions (Huang et al., 2011). To date, research on how alkali addition affects the distribution and transformation of heavy metals during the HT of SS is limited, which requires further investigation.

Pyrolysis is an attractive technology for SS hydrochar treatment after (alkaline) HT, which generates bio-oil, biochar, and syngas (Ding and Jiang, 2013; Patel et al., 2020; Paz-Ferreiro et al., 2018). The syngas produced can be burned to produce electricity and heat, while the bio-oil can be applied directly as fuel or converted to chemicals. Meanwhile, the produced biochar has wider application prospects as fuel, adsorbent, peat replacement, catalyst, and soil conditioner (Ahmed et al., 2021a, 2021b; Chagas et al., 2021; Gasco et al., 2018; Matuštík et al., 2020; Xie et al., 2021). In addition, pyrolysis enables the stabilization of heavy metals in SS to reduce their environmental impact. During pyrolysis, more available fractions (F1 and F2) of heavy metals can be converted to less available fractions by binding with the crystal lattices (Yuan et al., 2015). An obvious reduction in the available fractions (F1 + F2) of Zn, Cu, Pb, and Ni was observed during the pyrolysis of municipal SS (Jin et al., 2016). Moreover, released heavy metals are entrapped by biomass and chelated with inorganic matter and functional groups (Shi et al., 2013). Similar to HT, the temperatures (300–700 °C) employed in pyrolysis are generally lower than the melting points of most heavy metals, leading to their enrichment in the produced biochar (Wang et al., 2016). Cd and Hg are volatilized at temperatures higher than 600 °C because of their relatively low melting points (Li et al., 2020b). Furthermore, the alkaline pH of SS can contribute to the immobilization of heavy metals by reducing their dissolution during biochar generation (Wang et al., 2016; Xie et al., 2020). Owing to the positive effect of (alkaline) HT and pyrolysis, their combination, especially alkaline HT followed by pyrolysis, might improve heavy metal immobilization in the treated SS.

To elucidate the role of alkali in heavy metal immobilization, HT and alkaline HT-aided pyrolysis were used for the SS treatment in the present study. First, the hydrochar and biochar produced were evaluated as potential fuels for higher heating value (HHV), energy recovery (ER), and carbon recovery (CR). The immobilization performance of heavy metals from combining HT/alkaline HT with pyrolysis was investigated based on the fraction variation, leaching concentration, and potential ecological risk. This study aimed to reveal the effect of SS treatment using alkaline HT in combination with pyrolysis for efficient heavy metal immobilization.

Raw SS was obtained from the Tong’an Wastewater Treatment Plant (Xiamen, Fujian Province, China) treating both domestic and industrial wastewater. The dewatered SS (water content of 85 wt %) was stored in a refrigerator at 4 °C before use. Ca(OH)2 was used to adjust the pH of SS in the alkaline HT experiments. The pH was measured using a pH meter (Denver, UB-7, USA). Proximate analysis was performed according to Chinese standard methods (GB/T 28,731–2012). An elemental analyzer (Vario MAX,

To understand the impact of HT and pyrolysis on heavy metals and the properties of SS-derived products, the basic compositions, fuel properties, and heavy metal risks were systematically investigated and discussed.

HT and alkaline HT were employed to aid pyrolysis in the conversion of SS into biochar with the immobilization of heavy metals. The addition of alkali to SS promotes the demethylation reaction during both HT and pyrolysis. For heavy metal immobilization, HT increased F4 fractions of Cr and Mn, whereas alkaline HT was more beneficial for immobilizing As and Zn. In the pyrolysis process, HT promoted the accumulation of the F4 fractions of Cr and Cu, while alkaline HT facilitated the

Effect of Biochar, Mycorrhiza, and Foliar Application of Boron on Growth and Yield of Peanuts

1 August, 2022
 

Wirkung von Biokohle, Mykorrhiza und Blattanwendung von Bor auf Wachstum und Ertrag von Erdnüssen

The ever-increasing demand for food has led to the widespread use of chemical fertilizers, which in turn has exacerbated environmental problems. One of the known solutions to reduce these biological hazards is to use foliar amendments to provide good nutrients to plants and replace chemical fertilizers with biological ones, which improves the physical and chemical properties of the soil and conserves available resources. This experiment was conducted as a factorial experiment based on a completely randomized block design with three replications. The experimental treatments included nano boron fertilizer at two levels (N0: without nano boron fertilizer and N1: foliar fertilization with nano boron fertilizer), biochar at three levels (B0: without biochar, B1: peanut shell biochar, and B2: Azolla biochar), and mycorrhizal fungi at two levels (M0: without mycorrhizal inoculation and M1: mycorrhizal inoculation). The experimental results showed that the interaction effect of foliar fertilization with nano boron, biochar application, and inoculation with mycorrhizal fungi on the studied quantitative traits (e.g., green pod yield, grain pod yield, grain yield, number of seeds per plant, number of pods per plant, and weight of 100 seeds) and qualitative traits (e.g., grain nitrogen, phosphorus content, and percentage of grain protein) was significant. According to the results, the highest yield of green pods (23,180 kg−1 ha), grain pods yield (13,230 kg−1 ha), grain yield (8953 kg−1 ha), and seeds per plant (160.3) were obtained in foliar fertilization with nano boron without biochar and mycorrhizal inoculation. In addition, foliar fertilization with nano boron, application of Azolla biochar, and no inoculation with mycorrhiza had the highest content of nitrogen (3.98%) and grain protein (33.87%). Thus, according to the results of this experiment, proper and balanced nutritional management of peanuts leads to better yields. Foliar fertilization with nano boron can help to increase the quantitative and qualitative yield of peanuts. Biochar application and inoculation with mycorrhizal fungi conserve the available resources, improve the soil’s physical and chemical properties, and increase the quantity and quality of peanut seeds.

Die ständig steigende Nachfrage nach Nahrungsmitteln hat zu einem weit verbreiteten Einsatz von chemischen Düngemitteln geführt, was wiederum die Umweltprobleme verschärft hat. Eine der bekannten Lösungen zur Verringerung dieser biologischen Gefahren ist die Verwendung von Blattdüngern, um die Pflanzen mit guten Nährstoffen zu versorgen und diese chemischen Düngemittel durch biologische zu ersetzen, wodurch die physikalischen und chemischen Eigenschaften des Bodens verbessert und die verfügbaren Ressourcen geschont werden. Dieser Versuch wurde als faktorielles Experiment auf der Grundlage eines vollständig randomisierten Blockdesigns mit drei Wiederholungen durchgeführt. Die experimentellen Behandlungen umfassten Nanobordünger in zwei Stufen (N0: ohne Nanobordünger und N1: Blattdüngung mit Nanobordünger), Biokohle in drei Stufen (B0: ohne Biokohle, B1: Erdnussschalen-Biokohle und B2: Azolla-Biokohle) und Mykorrhizapilze in zwei Stufen (M0: ohne Mykorrhizainokulation und M1: Mykorrhizainokulation). Die Versuchsergebnisse zeigten, dass der Interaktionseffekt der Blattdüngung mit Nanobor, der Ausbringung von Biokohle und der Inokulation mit Mykorrhizapilzen auf die untersuchten quantitativen Merkmale (z. B. Grünschotenertrag, Kornschotenertrag, Kornertrag, Anzahl der Samen pro Pflanze, Anzahl der Hülsen pro Pflanze und 100-Samen-Gewicht) und qualitativen Merkmale (z. B. Kornstickstoff, Phosphorgehalt und Prozentsatz des Kornproteins) signifikant war. Den Ergebnissen zufolge wurden die höchsten Erträge an grünen Hülsen (23.180 kg−1 ha), an Körnerhülsen (13.230 kg−1 ha), an Körnern (8953 kg−1 ha) und an Samen pro Pflanze (160,3) bei der Blattdüngung mit Nanobor ohne Biokohle und Mykorrhizabeimpfung erzielt. Darüber hinaus wiesen die Blattdüngung mit Nanobor, die Anwendung von Azolla-Biokohle und die Nichtbeimpfung mit Mykorrhiza den höchsten Gehalt an Stickstoff (3,98 %) und Kornprotein (33,87 %) auf. Nach den Ergebnissen dieses Versuchs kann man also sagen, dass ein angemessenes und ausgewogenes Nährstoffmanagement bei Erdnüssen zu besseren Erträgen führt. Die Blattdüngung mit Nanobor kann dazu beitragen, den quantitativen und qualitativen Ertrag von Erdnüssen zu steigern. Der Einsatz von Biokohle und die Beimpfung mit Mykorrhizapilzen schonen die verfügbaren Ressourcen, verbessern die physikalischen und chemischen Eigenschaften des Bodens und erhöhen die Quantität und Qualität der Erdnusskerne.

This study aimed to investigate the degree of contribution of adsorption mechanisms of sulfamethoxazole (SMX) on corncob-derived biochar CC800 through competition experiments. The SMX adsorption was governed by diverse mechanisms under different pH, resulting in high pH dependent adsorption of SMX on biochar. The adsorption of SMX on CC800 in the presence of ions was evaluated, demonstrating that the ion exchange mechanism had a weak effect on the adsorption. The intense competitiveness of SMX structural analogs verified π+–π electron donor-acceptor (EDA) effect was the dominant adsorption mechanism of SMX on CC800 at low pH, and the negative charge-assisted hydrogen bond (CAHB) was critical to the adsorption at high pH. The adsorption mechanisms contribution of SMX on CC800 were further quantified. The SMX adsorption on CC800 was controlled by 50% pore filling mechanism, 39% π+–π EDA effect, 10% cation exchange mechanism in the acid region, and 77% pore filling mechanism, 16% (–)CAHB mechanism, 7% ion exchange mechanism in the alkalic region. Consequently, the above mechanisms provided a theoretical basis for biochar application to remove sulfonamide antibiotics and other similar organic contaminants and targeted design of biochar products. Also, this quantification method can be extended to quantify the adsorption mechanisms between other antibiotics or organics and biochar adsorbent materials by selecting suitable adsorption competitors.

Daybreak August 2: Bonnie: 'Sustainable intensification' key to climate fix – Agri-Pulse

 Robert Bonnie, who’s overseeing USDA’s work in ramping up climate-smart agriculture as undersecretary for farm production and conservation, is making the case that technology will be critical to ensuring farmers can reduce greenhouse gas emissions while maintaining global food supplies. 
 
Speaking at the International Sweetener Symposium in Vail, Colorado, Bonnie said “sustainable intensification is part of the answer to climate change. We have to continue to produce more. We have to continue to do it more efficiently.” 
 
If “sustainable intensification” sounds familiar, it’s because it was also used by the Trump administration, albeit without the broader effort the Biden administration has put into addressing climate change. 
 
On that note: Bonnie said USDA is trying to work with EPA in addressing concerns that ag groups have with EPA over ongoing pesticide issues. Picking up on a theme expressed by sugar growers, Bonnie said some climate-smart practices are dependent on the use of herbicides.
 
He noted EPA Administrator Michael Regan is from North Carolina, an agricultural state, and that Rod Snyder is EPA’s agricultural liaison. “We’ll use those relationships to the extent we can,” Bonnie said. 
 
By the way: USDA’s rule changes for the latest disaster assistance program – the Emergency Relief Program – have cut the Farm Service Agency’s processing time to about 40 minutes per application, Bonnie said. For the earlier version of the program, known as WHIP-Plus, it could take up to five hours per application.

Are soil-water functions affected by biochar application? – Publons

2 August, 2022
 

Published in Geoderma in July, 2015

Today biochar is considered a stable-carbon source that is able to improve soil quality. However, although biochar effects on some soil properties are already becoming well known, its impact on complex soil hydrological functions has yet to be better assessed. The main objectives are: (a) to determine the impact of different biochar amendments on important physical and chemical soil properties and (b) to determine whether the origin (biomass or sewage sludge) and pyrolysis technique can change biochar properties and regulate biochar influence on important soil functions, i.e. nutrient release, water sorption, and carbon storage. Six types of biochar produced from different biomass sources (pine, poplar or sludge) and pyrolysis processes (slow, fast or gasification) were applied to a sandy-loam, low-organic-matter, calcareous soil (mean dose: 18 g/kg) and incubated in a greenhouse without seeding. Two sampling campaigns, one month and one year after biochar amendments, were performed. The overall impact of biochar, analysed by principal response curves (PRCs), indicated that it could improve or deteriorate soil hydrological properties at different intensities. Soil wettability was modified due to sludge biochar addition to soil by increased water penetration dynamics during the capillary rise process of about 18%. In contrast, water storage as a soil function during soil drying was not affected. Because no differences on aggregate stability were observed between treatments, increments on soil organic carbon could not be related to biochar physical protection caused by aggregate formation or by enhanced aggregate stability. As a result, carbon storage, considered as a soil function provided by biochar, was mainly related to its chemical stability. On the other hand, nutrient flux during soil slaking was improved, increasing nutrient release from soil to water. In terms of biochar properties, an increment of surface wettabifity of biochar during water drop penetration was observed after one year of its addition to soil, where the mean values of contact angle (CA) decreased 69.5%. This important result suggest that initial biochar hydrophobicity (CA > 90 degrees) disappeared after 1 year. It was observed that PRC analysis was able to identify important key soil properties that should be monitored when biochar is used as soil amendment. We conclude that the impact of biochar on soil functions depends mainly on biochar feedstock rather than on the pyrolysis technique used during its production. In general, the performance of biochar obtained from sludge and vegetal biomass was markedly different. (C) 2015 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

Combined effects of biochar and biogas slurry on soil nitrogen transformation rates and N 2 …

2 August, 2022
 

Biochar significantly decreased net nitrification and mineralization rates.

Biochar alone decreased ONH4, ONrec and MNorg rates while increased INH4 and INO3 rates.

With slurry applied, biochar only significantly reduced autotrophic nitrification rates.

Biochar suppressed N2O emission by 58–89 %, and nitrification was the major pathway.

It has been widely accepted that biochar has a great potential of mitigating soil nitrous oxide (N2O) emission. However, the underlying mechanism about how biochar affects nitrogen transformation and the pathways of soil N2O production is under discussion. A 15N-tracer incubation experiment was conducted to investigate the short-term effects of biochar on soil N transformation rates and source partitioning of N2O emissions in soils from a poplar plantation system. A two-factor experimental design was adopted using biogas digestate slurry and biochar as soil amendments. In total, there were 12 treatments, including three rates of biochar: B0 (control), B2 (80 t ha−1), and B3 (120 t ha−1), and four rates of biogas digestate slurry: C (0 m3 ha−1), L (125 m3 ha−1), M (250 m3 ha−1), and H (375 m3 ha−1). We observed significantly lower rates of net nitrification (Nn) and mineralization (Mn) in biochar-treated soils. The 15N tracer analysis revealed a significant decrease in gross autotrophic (ONH4), heterotrophic nitrification (ONrec), and mineralization (MNorg) rates while an increase in gross immobilization (INH4 and INO3) rates in biochar amended soils. When biogas slurry was applied, biochar only significantly reduced ONH4 except in the moderate slurry treatment. Regardless of the slurry application, biochar consistently suppressed N2O emission by 58–89 %, and nitrification was the dominant pathway accounting contributing >90 % to cumulative N2O emissions. Moreover, soil cumulative N2O emissions significantly negatively correlated with soil ammonium contents and positively with MNorg, Mn, and Nn, showing that biochar decreased N2O emission via a reducing effect on nitrification rates and associated N2O emissions. Our results also highlight that application of N fertilizer greatly influence the biochar’s impacts on soil N transformation rates and N2O emission, calling for further studies on their interactions to develop mitigate options and to improve N use efficiency.

Biochar nanoparticle-induced plant immunity and its application with the elicitor … – RSC Publishing

2 August, 2022
 

The exogenous application of nanoscale biochar has great potential in agriculture to improve crop resistance to pathogens, although the mechanisms underlying this physiological response are unclear. We investigated the potential of nanoscale and conventional biochar amendment to induce resistance in Nicotiana benthamiana upon infection with the pathogen Phytophthora nicotianae. Nanoscale biochar synthesized at 350°C (400 mg L-1) from the corn straw with the particle size of ~160 nm had a beneficial role in the active immunity of N. benthamiana through the ethylene pathway to provide resistance to P. nicotianae infection; in leaf assays, lesion diameters were reduced by 9.26% as compared to controls. Mechanistically, a 20.3% increase in reactive oxygen species (ROS) from biochar NPs amendment activated the ethylene pathway, followed by SA-induced systemic acquired resistance (SAR) expression. The SA-induced immunity increased over 10-fold in the two biochar NPs treatments. In addition, the biochar NPs induced PR1-a to a significantly greater extent than did regular biochar particles. In an experiment with the plant elicitor 5-methoxyindole, biochar NPs served as a unique delivery platform to improve plant growth; over 105.3% in the shoot length and 41.2% in the root length after seed treatment with biochar NPs and 5-methoxyindole compared to the untreated controls. This study demonstrates the successful use of exogenous nanoscale biochar amendment to stimulate plant defense responses and subsequent resistance to the important pathogen P. nicotianae. This approach holds great promise as a new plant protection strategy in sustainable nano-enabled agriculture.

<b>Background and Objective:</b> Biological fertilization in the development of agriculture became one new strategy in the increased production of field crops to decrease the costs of production input and environmental pollution. This study focused on the influence of biochar fertilization on the productivity of faba bean varieties under sandy soils. <b>Materials and Methods:</b> Appreciation of the yield and its components, in addition to measurement of grain protein content as well as carbohydrates (%) of faba bean. <b>Results:</b> The data obtained indicated that the biochar amendment affects plant production at different rates, where the best yield obtained is 90 kg fed<sup>1</sup>. The grain yield increase is significant for the variety’s types where, Mariout-2, followed by Nubaria-3 followed by Giza-716 for the addition of 90 kg fed<sup>1</sup> of biochar as referenced by the non-conditioning treatment. Likewise, the protein content was highest in the Mariout-2 variety, followed by Nubaria-3 variety and Giza-716 variety for the addition. This improvement may be regarded to the impact of biochar on the physic-chemical characteristics for the soils, in addition to the biological characteristics. Furthermore, the biochar itself add nutrient to the soil after decomposition. The best improvement happens by the long-term cropping for a long period could be reached up to years. <b>Conclusion:</b> The conclusion that plant growth was better at a high rate (90 kg fed<sup>1</sup>) but the economy of this rate may be questioned, under the condition of the study. However, the validation for different soils may vary with different rates, which needs more research. Also, it is recommended to use Mariout-2 cultivars for their high production under these conditions.

Overview of the use of biochar from main cereals to stimulate plant growth – Frontiers

2 August, 2022

Austrian Institute of Technology (AIT), Austria

The total global food demand is expected to increase up to 50% between 2010 and 2050; hence, there is a clear need to increase plant productivity with little or no damage to the environment. In this respect, biochar is a carbon-rich material derived from the pyrolysis of organic matter at high temperatures with a limited oxygen supply, with different physicochemical characteristics that depend on the feedstock and pyrolysis conditions. When used as a soil amendment, it has shown many positive environmental effects such as carbon sequestration, reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, and soil improvement. Biochar application has also shown huge benefits when applied to agri-systems, among them, the improvement of plant growth either in optimal conditions or under abiotic or biotic stress. Several mechanisms, such as enhancing the soil microbial diversity and thus increasing soil nutrient-cycling functions, improving soil physicochemical properties, stimulating the microbial colonization, or increasing soil P, K, or N content, have been described to exert these positive effects on plant growth, either alone or in combination with other resources. In addition, it can also improve the plant antioxidant defenses, an evident advantage for plant growth under stress conditions. Although agricultural residues are generated from a wide variety of crops, cereals account for more than half of the world’s harvested area. Yet, in this review, we will focus on biochar obtained from residues of the most common and relevant cereal crops in terms of global production (rice, wheat, maize, and barley) and in their use as recycled residues to stimulate plant growth. The harvesting and processing of these crops generate a vast number and variety of residues that could be locally recycled into valuable products such as biochar, reducing the waste management problem and accomplishing the circular economy premise. However, very scarce literature focused on the use of biochar from a crop to improve its own growth is available. Herein, we present an overview of the literature focused on this topic, compiling most of the studies and discussing the urgent need to deepen into the molecular mechanisms and pathways involved in the beneficial effects of biochar on plant productivity.

The Donum Estate Achieves Organic Certification of All Estate Vineyards – Wine Industry Advisor

3 August, 2022
 

Winemaking team led by Dan Fishman recognized for applying regenerative, organic farming principles to every step of the winegrowing process

SONOMA, California (August 3, 2022) – The Donum Estate, a leader in Estate Grown single-vineyard, single-appellation Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from some of the most celebrated regions in Northern California, is thrilled to announce it has just achieved organic certification from the California Certified Organic Farming Association (CCOF) for all four Estate vineyards in Carneros, Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast.

Led by Vice President of Winemaking and Vineyards, Dan Fishman, Donum’s winemaking philosophy has never wavered: to make the finest Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in California while also preserving natural resources. To achieve this, the winemaking team is constantly innovating, and testing new techniques and farming practices. This includes soil enrichment using compost and compost tea to help increase the soil’s ability to hold organic activity, integrated pest management, and encouraging biodiversity in and around the vineyards.

“Our goal is to create wines of exceptional quality that communicate the unique character of the vineyards in which the grapes are grown,” said Fishman. “In order for the vines to yield a true expression of the land, it is critical to start with healthy, living soils. Achieving CCOF Certification is a milestone as it solidifies our commitment to work with products that respect the soil, the many organisms that call our vineyard home, and the surrounding land. This certification represents both the culmination of a three-year transition away from synthetic inputs, and well as the beginning of a generational commitment to working in harmony with nature to grow the best possible wine grapes, while also giving back more to the land than we take each year.”

The Ferguson Vineyard in Carneros and Estate vineyard in the Russian River Valley were certified organic in June 2022. Also in Carneros, the Donum Estate Home Ranch was certified organic in July 2022. Donum’s newest vineyard, Bodega, which sits just five miles from the ocean with western facing slopes exposed to onshore winds, has been certified organic since its inception, and will bear its first crop in 2024. The Donum Estate’s proximity to the San Pablo Bay and the powerful wind it generates in Carneros makes Donum uniquely prepared to work with the extreme climate at the Bodega Estate Vineyard. 

Director of Winegrowing, Tony Chapman, adds “Over the three years of converting Donum’s vineyards to organic we’ve seen our greatest resource thrive, our soil. The wellbeing of our soil drives the health of our vineyards and the broader ecosystem at Donum. We’re actively increasing our biodiversity, supporting carbon-sequestration, and increasing our resiliency to difficult growing conditions.”

Donum’s organic practices include producing and utilizing biochar, a specialized form of charcoal created when biomass is heated at a high temperature in low oxygen environments. To demonstrate this underutilized tool, Donum hosted a seminar open to the local wine industry with the Sonoma Ecology Center, in partnership with Monterey Pacific Inc. and Pacific Biochar. Biochar brings many benefits to the soil, including increased water holding capacity, increased organic matter, and better nutrient availability. When properly produced it captures carbon and puts it into a stable form trapped in the soil, preventing it from contributing to atmospheric carbon dioxide.

Part of the winemaking team since 2007, Fishman was promoted to oversee the winemaking in 2012 and is heading into his 11th harvest as head winemaker. Fishman was promoted to Vice-President, Winemaking & Vineyards in 2019, with oversight of all Estate Vineyards, and immediately began the transition to organic farming. Tony Chapman joined the team in 2019 and has been integral in shepherding Donum through the Organic Certification process while introducing regenerative practices such as livestock (sheep, chickens, and ducks) in the vineyards, as well as the integration of biochar.

The Donum Estate

Donum’s terroir-driven wines reflect the energy and complexity of some of the most celebrated regions in Northern California including the Russian River Valley, Carneros and Anderson Valley. Founded in 2001, the Donum Estate is located in the acclaimed wine region Carneros nestled between Napa and Sonoma Counties. Donum includes a state-of-the-art winemaking facility, an organic farm, culinary garden, contemporary hospitality experience and one of the largest accessible private sculpture collections in the world. Donum brings to life a delicate balance among wine, land and art that has made it an international destination. For the past two decades, sustainability has been at the forefront of the Donum Estate vision—Donum, in fact, is Latin for Gift of the land. Its biodynamic and organic farming practices create environments in which the vines can thrive and produce the highest-quality fruit possible. Learn more at https://www.thedonumestate.com

Haliburton Forest Biochar announces $10 million expansion

3 August, 2022
 

By Vivian Collings

A $10 million expansion of Haliburton Forest Biochar (HFB) is bringing 20 new jobs and a product that can be used to help fight climate change to the Highlands.
Haliburton Forest Biochar is a facility that aims to produce biochar products from sustainably, locally sourced forest matter.
Biochar is a carbon-rich, charcoal-like substance that is produced by burning forest material in a zero-oxygen environment. It is porous and can retain water and nutrients in soil, reduce carbon emissions from soil, and can produce oil and gas byproducts that can be used as fuel.
HFB has had a goal of expanding their facilities for the past six years, and plans are now coming to fruition.

Located on Kennaway Road off of Highway 118 in Haliburton, at what was formerly Direct Pellet Industries Inc, the expansion will happen over the next eight months with a goal to begin producing biochar at HFB in February 2023.
“Having made significant advancements with our technology, market development, and all of those other important building blocks, we’re making a large investment in the facility leading in to next year of a total of $10 million to expand the footprint of the buildings on the site and to install new manufacturing equipment. With that, there will be significant hiring of staff and overall growth of the business,” said Malcolm Cockwell, managing director of Haliburton Forest and Wild Life Reserve and HFB.
A portion of the funding for the expansion is coming from Natural Resources Canada’s Investments in Forest Industry Transformation (IFIT) program, and the rest of the funding is an investment by HFB.
Applications of the funding
The expansion will feature a facility to house an innovative unit to create the biochar by way of a process called pyrolysis.

General manager of HFB Gavin Pearce said, “About four years ago we added another building to expand our operations, and then we’re building another facility to house our full-scale pyrolysis unit. Over the years, we’ve been working with our existing buildings, but we’ve learned so much about biochar that we are confident that we can scale it and increase the meaningful impact on both the local economy and also our customers with an environmentally-friendly product.”
The new unit has taken the HFB team and their partners years to design.
The unit resembles large ovens that are completely sealed with systems that capture and recycle the air within them.
“Pyrolysis takes place when biomass is heated to about 400 degrees Celsius in a zero-oxygen environment. When that happens, all of the [volatile organic compounds] are drawn out of the biomass and what you’re left with is carbon. So, we end up with a biochar product that is 80 to 90 per cent carbon, and that carbon is stable in that form, so it won’t break down. The gases that it releases are used as a heating source to fuel the process, so it’s a closed loop, so to speak,” Pearce said.
The biomass used to create biochar is low-value, hardwood residues like wood chips and sawdust.
Local careers
The expanded facility will require 20 additional skilled employees to operate it.
Cockwell said this expansion will be beneficial for the local economy, businesses, and employees.
“For the community members, the most important thing is the employment and the local supply chain that Biochar feeds in to. These are skilled positions that are part of the growing bio-economy in Canada.”
The material used to produce biochar comes from the sawmill at Haliburton Forest and Wild Life Reserve.
“These are forest products that are produced at our local sawmill here on Kennisis Lake Road which also employs local people, and those forest products have been harvested from the forest by local loggers and truckers,” Cockwell said.

Executive director of the Haliburton Highlands Chamber of Commerce Bob Gaudette said the expansion of HFB is a great opportunity for the community.
“The creation of “career” employment opportunities support the community and local economy in a number of ways. One of which is the ability of younger local talent to stay within their home county and work on innovative technologies and projects … Opportunities like HFB expansion can help to stem the talent drain as well as draw others into our local workforce,” Gaudette said.

Replacement of fossil fuels
In an HFB expansion press release, it said the biochar produced by the facility can be used to displace fossil fuel products on a pound-for-pound basis.
“The facility will have the potential to generate a net reduction of 4,200 tonnes per year of C02 equivalent emissions and offset more than 7,500 tonnes per year of CO2 equivalent emissions,” said the press release.

Nature Communications article Sustainable biochar to mitigate global climate change said that processes like the production of biochar may be the only way to stabilize Earth’s surface temperature and stop rapid climate change.
“If humanity oversteps the threshold of maximum safe cumulative emissions, a limit that may already have been exceeded, no amount of emissions reduction will return the climate to within safe bounds. Mitigation strategies, [like the production of biochar,] that draw down excess CO2 from the atmosphere would then assume an importance greater than an equivalent reduction in emissions.”
Biochar stores carbon for a longer time than if the forest product had been left to decay naturally.
“In addition to fossil energy offsets and carbon storage, some emissions of methane and nitrous oxide are avoided by preventing biomass decay and by amending soils with biochar,” as reported in the Nature Communications article.
This biochar can be used in the manufacturing of a variety of consumer, healthcare, industrial, and automotive products.
“While most biochar production facilities at the moment are focused on soil applications like gardening or agriculture, we are focused on advanced manufacturing. Examples include replacing coal in the production of steel and oil by-products in the production of bioplastics,” Cockwell said.

Canadian bioeconomics

The Canadian Ministry of Natural Resources has been prioritizing bioeconomics in the country to increase the use of an abundance of forest biomass to create valuable product and to promote clean technology innovation, green infrastructure, and green jobs.
“By investing in the expansion of this biochar production facility in Haliburton, Ontario, we are strengthening Canada’s bioproducts sector while becoming more economically competitive, environmentally sustainable, and innovative through targeted investments in advanced technologies,” said Minister of Natural Resources Jonathan Wilkinson in the HFB expansion press release.
The future of HFB
Cockwell said that for the time being, HFB is focused on solely the Kennaway Road site, but there is potential to expand to more sites in the future.
“The timeline is quite short to get up and running, and the reason for that is the interest from the federal government helping to fund this project. The push is from the federal government in terms of creating and moving forward green projects as fast as possible in order to meet our greenhouse gas emission target,” Pearce said.
The team is looking forward to getting the facility up and running after almost a decade of planning and preparation.
HFB currently has one job opportunity posted with many more to come.

WHITE CASTLE, La.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Aug 3, 2022–

American BioCarbon, an innovative manufacturer of renewable products made from sugarcane bagasse, has successfully completed a rigorous certification process conducted by Puro.earth to verify its biochar as a carbon removal tool. American BioCarbon is now certified to sell digital tradable assets called CO 2 Removal Certificates (CORCs) in the carbon markets under an agreement with Puro.earth. This certification represents a major milestone as American BioCarbon seeks to become the largest capacity biochar producer in the U.S.

The Puro.earth certification is a rigorous verification process which confirmed that American BioCarbon’s biochar is truly carbon net-negative and complies with Puro Standard’s methodology requirements including environmental safeguards. Independent assessors audited American BioCarbon’s production facility and validated the accuracy of the company’s data. The audit considers product lifecycle, requires scientific measurement and quantification of the removed CO 2, and its residence time in storage. The verified volume of extra carbon absorbed in the biochar is then issued CORCs for every metric ton of CO 2 removed and stored.

“We are pleased with the results of the Puro.earth audit, which confirm that American BioCarbon’s biochar is an effective carbon removal solution,” said Ned Dwyer, CEO of American BioCarbon. “We are proud to utilize an agricultural waste product, which otherwise creates a significant environmental liability, and transform it into a valuable climate-positive Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) commodity.”

“Biochar is recognized in the IPCC report as a route to terrestrial carbon storage. Puro.earth is proud to welcome American BioCarbon to offer its CORCs to responsible corporations that want to remove their carbon emissions. The large volume of CORCs increases much needed supply in the carbon markets,” said Marianne Tikkanen, Head of Carbon Removal Supply at Puro.earth.

American BioCarbon’s bagasse-based biochar captures carbon (that would otherwise be released into the atmosphere through bagasse decomposition or burn-offs) in a secure chemical structure, providing a stable carbon storage solution. When incorporated into soil, biochar is up to 100 times more stable than the feedstock from which it was produced, and a substantial amount of biochar’s organic carbon will persist in soil for decades to millennia. Biochar also offers environmental and agricultural benefits such as nutrient retention, improved water holding capacity, and increased aeration.

Puro.earth is the world’s first marketplace, standard and registry for science-based carbon removal credits. Puro.earth provides carbon removal as a service, helping corporate buyers create a long-term procurement portfolio to neutralize their carbon footprint and reach net zero. The Puro Standard focuses solely on verified net-negative technologies that can remove carbon at an industrial scale and store it for a minimum of 50 years. In 2021, Nasdaq announced its acquisition of a majority stake in Puro.earth.

A Never-Ending Pursuit | Biomassmagazine.com

3 August, 2022
 

Although we cover a very broad range of bioenergy types in Biomass Magazine, a main pillar of this 15-year-old industry trade journal is wood-using technology, including heat, power and wood pellet production. As such, a crucial topic we focus on in one issue per year is fire and explosion prevention, protection and mitigation. Although the topic may seem a bit tired, the fact is that wood and wood dust are combustible by nature, and that isn’t changing. But what companies in the general wood products space can potentially change are the number of incidents and the outcomes of those that do occur, with protection of employees, assets and the surrounding environment always being top of mind.

Companies in the fire and explosion space are constantly evolving and improving technologies, and you’ll find some examples in our page-10 feature, “Arming the Industry,” by Katie Schroeder. This is, of course, a very limited review of the advancements in fire and explosion protection, but also includes some good insight from the professionals she spoke with, who continue to see the need for education, adoption and evolution of applications. Says Jason Krbec, sales and engineering manager at CV Technology, “…combustible dust is a growing issue, especially in biomass where they’re handling wood materials or biochar … On one side [technology] protects your employees, and on the other side it protects your process. So, there are two reasons as to why it becomes really critical.”  You’ll also find content on this topic in our page-26 contribution, “Improving Early Warning Fire Detection: Thermal Imaging and the Internet of Things,” as well as our page-30 spotlight article, “Keys to Maximum Explosion Protection.”

The bonus theme of this issue is biogas and RNG. Lately, there has been quite the buzz about the production and sale of nutrient-rich digestate, as the prices of fertilizer have soared as a result of the Russian invasion of the Ukraine. Two contributions are focused on this topic: “Drying Digestate,” on page 30, and “Unlocking Biofertilizer as an Additional Revenue Source,” on page 28.  We have also included a column authored by the RNG Coalition’s Leslie Dalton, which includes some good industry talking points regarding the potential and value of RNG as a substitute for imported fossil fuels, and a spotlight article on page 32, which discusses a technology for tail gas flaring at RNG plants.

Finally, we’ll soon be getting to work on our Biomass Power & Waste-to-Energy Map, North American Pellet Production Map and North American Renewable Natural Gas Map. We strive to independently verify all data, but if your facility is or will soon be under construction, is undergoing an expansion, has changed hands in the past year or isn’t currently listed, please drop us a line to ensure our records are as up to date as possible.

In this paper, research on pesticide adsorption mechanism of corn straw biochar based on KOH thermal activation is carried out. In this paper, corn stalks and pine needles are used as raw materials for preparing biomass charcoal, and biochar is prepared at temperatures of 200°C, 400°C, and 600°C. This paper uses thermogravimetric analysis, elemental analysis, electron microscopy scanning, aperture measurement, infrared spectroscopy, and other characterization techniques to analyze the structure and properties of biochar in detail. Moreover, this paper uses batch method to select different organic pesticides diuron and carbaryl to test their adsorption performance. This article discusses the relationship between the adsorption mechanism and structural characteristics of biochar for organic pollutants. In addition, this paper studies the adsorption mechanism of diuron and carbaryl in the loess by adding exogenous biochar to the loess. Finally, this article analyzes the impact of the addition of biochar on the environmental behavior of diesel-contaminated loess adsorption of organic pollutants. This paper studies the role of KOH thermally activated corn stover biochar in agricultural adsorption, and verifies the reliability of the method proposed in this paper through experimental studies.

With the development of modern agriculture, a large number of pesticides are used for the prevention and treatment of diseases, pests, and weeds. It is of great significance in ensuring a bumper harvest in agriculture, promoting the development of high-yield, high-quality, and efficient modern agriculture, meeting people’s demand for agricultural and sideline products, and reducing the intensity of agricultural production. According to incomplete statistics, if pesticides are not used in world food production, the average loss of the three major food crops of wheat, rice, and corn will be more than 30%. If pesticides are not used, the output of agricultural products may be reduced by about 40% in the first year, and the output may be reduced by 60% or even no production in the second year [1]. The use of pesticides in my country can recover 15–30% of the loss of agricultural products every year, and the income from the use of pesticides is about 4 times the cost of pesticides. Therefore, pesticides have become an indispensable means of production in the modern agricultural production [2]. However, while the use of pesticides brings huge benefits to mankind, pesticides and the metabolites and degradation products of some pesticides not only pollute the crops themselves, but also pollute the growth environment of crops such as soil and natural water bodies, posing serious threats to the ecological environment and human health. With the progress of society and the enhancement of human environmental protection awareness and the increasing exposure of the harm caused by the pesticides, people have begun to realize the seriousness of the harm caused by pesticides to human health and environmental pollution. Moreover, all countries in the world have formulated relevant rules and regulations to strictly manage pesticides, and environmental pollution and governance of pesticides have become a global problem. The United States, Japan, Malaysia, South Korea, Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, Russia, France, Russia, Taiwan, and other countries and regions have successively established standards for maximum pesticide residue limits, and formulated and promulgated relevant standards. At the same time, the United Nations, European Community, and other world organizations have established a special pesticide residue work system, which is fully responsible for the formulation of pesticide residue standards [3].

The use of pesticides has increased the output of agricultural products. Driven by market demand and economic benefits, people have used more and more pesticides. Although my country has issued relevant industry standards for the safe use of pesticides many times, as well as a list of prohibited pesticides [4], under the temptation of economic interests, the use of pesticides continues to increase; The human body is exposed to organic pesticides remaining in the environment through various channels, and trace amounts of toxic pesticides slowly enter the human body. Accumulation, although it will not cause obvious acute poisoning hazard to the human body in a short time, it will cause chronic potential hazards. For example: organophosphorus and carbamate pesticides can inhibit cholinesterase activity, and prolonged exposure to such pesticides affect the normal function of the human nervous system. Biochar is a carbon-rich substance formed by the pyrolysis of wastes such as wood, straw, manure, or leaves under oxygen-limited or anaerobic conditions. My country produces a large amount of agricultural straw waste every year, but the utilization rate is very low and less than 50%. More than 30% of the straw is directly burned or discarded in the field, which not only causes serious waste of resources, but also causes environmental pollution and other problems. Especially in remote rural areas, the random burning of agricultural straws releases a large amount of CO2 gas, which aggravates the greenhouse effect; on the other hand, the random stacking of agricultural waste makes the toxic and harmful pollutants enter the soil and groundwater with the erosion of rainwater., which can also become the source of agricultural pollution. However, the preparation of biochar can be a new way to deal with agricultural waste straw, because the unique properties of biochar itself determine its utilization value. Applying biochar into the soil can improve the soil environment, and the carbon sequestration effect of biochar can alleviate the greenhouse effect to a certain extent. In addition, because of its special surface structure, biochar has the ability to adsorb pollutants, which is also of great significance for improving the quality and safety of agricultural products.

Through the research on the environmental behavior of pesticides in soil, literature [5] found that the mobility of pesticides in soil is closely related to the physical and chemical properties of pesticides themselves, which is mainly affected by chemical properties, shape, structure, pH, water solubility, molecular size, and polarity. Ionic pesticides mainly react with soil particles through ion exchange and hydrogen bonding, while organic pesticides that are easily dissociated into cations can be adsorbed in soil or sediments through cation exchange (ionic bonding). The literature [6] found that the content of organic matter in the soil plays a decisive role in the adsorption of nonionic herbicides to a certain extent. However, mineral components have little effect on its adsorption, while ionic herbicides have the opposite effect.

Since the structure of biomass charcoal is relatively loose, it can be mixed with the soil to increase the porosity of the soil, thereby increasing the air and moisture content in the soil. Unlike other organic matter in the soil, biomass charcoal contains more trace elements and the biomass charcoal applied to the soil also has good chemical stability, will not be weathered and decomposed for a long time, and can continuously improve the soil fertility [7]. Literature [8] applied biomass charcoal as fertilizer to corn fields, and found that the yield of corn has been significantly improved. In addition, mixing biomass charcoal and traditional inorganic or organic fertilizers into the soil in a certain proportion can delay the release of nutrients in the fertilizer, which will reduce the loss of nutrients and significantly increase the utilization rate of fertilizers. Biomass charcoal has also played a positive role in improving the absorption of nutrients by crops. The literature [9] found through a series of studies that the nitrogen content in the soil to which biomass charcoal is applied has increased to a certain extent. However, the research on the application of biomass charcoal as a soil amendment to agricultural production is still mainly in a short period of time, and the mechanism of action and long-term effects are still unclear. In addition, since it cannot be ruled out whether it has major side effects, it is currently difficult to promote it on a large scale. Scientists still need to further explore and study the biochar soil amendment.

In modern industry, almost all products that are produced have to go through the process of printing and packaging. In the process of packaging and printing, a large amount of dyes are consumed. This aspect has promoted the continuous development of the printing and dyeing industry. On the other hand, the excessive use of dyes has also caused a considerable degree of environmental problems [10]. If the surplus and unused dyes in the factory cannot be processed in time, they are easily discharged into the environment. Because dye molecules contain more aromatic functional groups, the complex molecular structure often makes them difficult to degrade, which will cause serious pollution to soil and rivers [11]. According to reports, some dyes can irritate human skin and cause allergic symptoms. In severe cases, it can also cause cancer or deformity [12]. For example: Methylene blue is the most common dye for cotton, wood, silk, and other products. It contains certain toxicity. Acute exposure to methylene blue solution can cause increased heart rate, vomiting, shock, cyanosis, jaundice, quadriplegia, and tissue necrosis. Reference [13]. Before being discharged to public water sources, how to effectively remove dyes from industrial wastewater is the focus of attention nowadays. Adsorption is generally considered to be a reliable technology for the treatment of dye-containing wastewater.

Out of economic considerations, scientists have been studying the process of preparing biomass-activated carbon from agricultural by-products and waste materials as raw materials for a long time. Various agricultural and forestry wastes, such as walnut shells, wood chips, rubber trees, jute fibers, snail shells, castor beans, coconut shells, and oil palm fibers, have been tried to prepare high specific surface area biomass-activated carbon adsorbents, especially for the research on the specific adsorption function of biomass charcoal that has always been valued by the scientific researchers [14].

Soil is an important place for human activities to survive, and it is also the main destination for environmental behaviors of various external pollutants. The pollutants that enter the environment will eventually accumulate in the soil sediments. It often leads to secondary pollution of the groundwater environment. The organic pesticides remaining in the soil will be enriched and migrated in the food chain, which will cause harm to human health. After pesticides enter the soil environment, processes such as adsorption runoff, biodegradation, and plant absorption will occur. Moreover, it can be degraded into intermediate products or even completely mineralized under the combined action of physics, biology, and chemistry. Or, it migrates through leaching, evaporation, diffusion, absorption and enrichment of animals and plants, and causes pollution to the groundwater environment, atmosphere, and agricultural products (Figure 1). In this process, soil adsorption becomes a key step to lock pesticide pollutants and control their migration. The distribution capacity of pesticides in these media determines its ultimate fate in the environment [15].

The adsorption process of organic pesticide molecules in the soil is the process of their distribution in soil media such as solution, organic matter, and surface minerals (Figure 2). Hydrophobic distribution, covalent bonds, hydrogen bonds, ligand exchange, and chelation are important factors for the adsorption of organic pesticides on soil particles. Studies have pointed out that when atrazine and other herbicides are adsorbed on solids such as activated carbon or clay minerals, compared with soil organic matter, the role of mineral components in sediments to adsorb organic pollutants is not the primary factor. On the one hand, the soluble organic matter in the soil can solubilize pesticides. On the other hand, there are special adsorption sites in the humic acid structure of organic matter, which can still adsorb herbicides on the surface. However, the amount and structural composition of the organic matter in the soil in different regions are different, which makes the environmental behavior of organic pollutants such as pesticides different. Therefore, studying the environmental behavior of pesticide pollutants in soil has far-reaching practical significance for soil pollution control [16].

Broadly speaking, biochar is a type of black carbon. Because of its special structure, it has a wide range of applications in the fields of agriculture, ecological restoration, and environmental protection. It was found that biochar prepared from different sources and different pyrolysis conditions showed differences in the adsorption performance of organic pollutants and heavy metals [17]. Therefore, it is necessary to effectively characterize the prepared biochar to understand the changes in its structure and properties and reveal its influence on the adsorption of organic pollutants by loess. We selected corn stalks and pine needles as the biomass raw materials in this study, and the preparation of biochar was carried out at 200, 400, and 600 temperature conditions by oxygen-limited and temperature-controlled pyrolysis. We use thermogravimetric analysis, elemental analysis, FTIR spectroscopy, specific surface area analysis, and other methods to characterize the structural characteristics of each substance, and analyze the effects of different preparation methods on its elemental composition, surface structure, and surface properties. The problem of soil pollution caused by the abuse of various pesticide pollutants has become more and more serious. This has attracted the attention of my country’s environmental protection departments, and relevant laws and regulations have also made further improvements and clear regulations, which have made soil pollution problems in my country. It has become a research hotspot for environmental workers, and the environmental behavior of various toxic and hazardous pollutants in soil has also become an important research topic in the environmental field. Therefore, it is necessary to seek a new way that is cost-effective and can improve soil environmental pollution, while also improving the soil environmental quality. This has also become an objective requirement for ensuring the safety, yield, and quality of agricultural products. There are great differences in soil structure and organic matter content in different regions, and there are also great differences in their ability to adsorb organic pollutants. Up to the present stage, there is a lack of relevant theoretical studies on the adsorption behavior of organic pesticide pollutants in loess in Northwestern cold and early regions by exogenous biochar, especially for some new persistent organic pollutants. At present, the research on the influence mechanism of biochar on the migration and transformation behavior of organic pollutants in the soil environment is not diminishing. The heterogeneity of carbon itself makes the adsorption effect, process, and mechanism of different biochar to have certain differences, so it has great research potential.

Pesticides are widely used in agricultural production to improve the yield and appearance quality of agricultural products. They are a very common environmental pollutant. A large number of residual pollutants entering the soil environment will produce a series of side effects, which will reduce the quality of the soil, affect the activity of microorganisms, and then cause soil compaction, which is not conducive to the long-term growth of crops. Therefore, exploring the adsorption mechanism of pesticide pollutants in soil helps to provide a certain theoretical reference for the treatment and improvement of soil in polluted areas [18].

Based on the above analysis, this paper studies the adsorption mechanism of corn stover biochar pesticides based on KOH thermal activation, and the following research will be carried out in conjunction with the experimental research.

The raw material of biochar is derived from corn stalks in the north. We first wash away the adhering debris on the surface of the straw, then ventilate and dry it under natural conditions, then crush it and sieve it, soak it in a certain amount of deionized water for 24 hours, and then filter it. Finally, it is dried in a drying box and stored for later use. The main instruments include thermogravimetric analyzer, temperature-controlled muffle furnace, Fourier transform infrared spectrometer, element analyzer, scanning electron microscope (SEM), and specific surface area analyzer.

We use limited oxygen temperature control carbonization method, weigh a small amount of straw powder in a crucible, carbonize it at 200, 400, and 600°C, respectively, for 6 h, take it out after cooling to room temperature, sieving, and storing. The sample numbers of corn stover and pine needle biochar are MBC-200, MBC-400, MBC-600, PBC-200, PBC-400, and PBC-600, respectively.

1 mol/l KOH solution and 5 g biochar are mixed. The mixture was magnetically stirred at 80°C in a water bath for 1 h, and then immersed for 11H at room temperature.

We use a cloth funnel to filter and separate the biochar mixture fully impregnated with KOH activator, and place the filtered biochar in a crucible for later use [19].

The biochar precursor obtained in the previous step was placed in a horizontal vacuum tube electric furnace in a nitrogen atmosphere (160 ml/min) (Figure 3). The biochar precursors with different alkali-to-carbon ratios were activated at 600°C, 700°C, and 800°C for 30 minutes, and the heating rate of the reactor was set to 3°C/min.

After taking out the cooled biochar, it was soaked in an excess HCI solution with a concentration of 0.1 mol/L and boiled slightly for 10 minutes. After cooling, it is washed repeatedly with the same concentration of HCl solution, and finally washed with distilled water until the pH of the filtrate is 6-7. After filtration and separation, the activated biochar is dried at 105°C for 12 h and cooled to room temperature for later use, which is called activated biochar [20].

When biomass is pyrolyzed, part of the organic matter is destroyed, while relatively stable carbonaceous substances are retained. The ash content and yield of biochar are shown in Tables 1 and 2. From the calculation results in the table, it is concluded that the yield of biochar is related to the pyrolysis temperature in the preparation process. As the pyrolysis temperature increases, the yield shows a certain downward trend. When the pyrolysis temperature is 200°C, the yield of MBC-200 is 67.1%, and the yield of PBC-200 is as high as 75%. At 400°C, the carbonization yield of MBC-400 was reduced to 28.2%, and the carbonization yield of PBC-400 was reduced to 37%. However, when the temperature rises to 600°C, corn stalks and pine needles are carbonized in a large amount, the carbonization yield of MBC-600 drops to 24%, and the carbonization yield of PBC-600 drops to 2.27%. The comparison shows that the carbonization yield of pine needles is higher than that of corn stalks at the three different preparation temperatures. It is mainly due to the differences in the structure and elemental composition of the protoplasm. With the continuous increase of pyrolysis temperature, a large amount of cellulose breaks and loses.

Due to its special physical and chemical properties, biochar has been widely used in sewage treatment and air purification fields. Its application in soil is considered to be a win-win measure to alleviate climate change and increase soil fertility, and it has become a research hotspot in the field of agricultural production and ecological environment. Moreover, there are a wide range of sources of materials for the preparation of biochar. In this paper, corn stalk biochar and pine needle biochar are taken as examples to study the adsorption behavior of organic pollutants (carivin and diuron) of biochar obtained from different pyrolysis conditions. Moreover, this paper determines the adsorption thermodynamics and adsorption kinetics models, and discusses the relevant factors affecting the adsorption behavior.

The kinetic adsorption curves of the pollutants diuron and carbaryl on different biochar are shown in Figures 4 and 5. The data is shown in Tables 36. It can be seen from the figure that the equilibrium adsorption capacity of biochar for diuron, carbaryl, etc. is positively correlated with its thermal cracking temperature. Whether it is the adsorption of diuron or carbaryl, the adsorption capacity of MBC-00 and PBC-600 is much greater than the adsorption capacity of biochar prepared at 200°C and 400°C. Moreover, all the adsorption processes are manifested as a fast reaction stage and a slow reaction stage. The fast reaction stage is mainly controlled by electrostatic gravity, and is mainly exchange adsorption. In this stage, the adsorption of carbaryl and diuron by biochar is first carried out on the surface of biochar. When the surface of biochar reaches adsorption saturation, there are pore structures inside the biochar particles, and these pores can accept more diuron and carbaryl molecules. Therefore, the carbaryl and diuron molecules adsorbed on the surface of the biochar slowly diffuse into the biochar particles, causing the surface of the biochar to become unsaturated again, and more carbaryl and diuron molecules need to be adsorbed. At this time, the concentration of the solution decreases. As the “active sites” that can be adsorbed on the surface of the biochar decrease and the concentration of carbaryl and diuron molecules that can be adsorbed in the solution decreases, the adsorption turns to a slow reaction stage. At this time, the adsorption rate decreases, and the adsorption gradually reaches a saturated state.

The paper has reached the following conclusions:(1)The characterization results of biochar show that the surface of biochar contains hydroxyl, carboxyl, and carbonyl groups. With the increase of biochar preparation temperature, O. H, C, a large number of chemical bonds such as H, C=O, and phenol-OH are broken and disappeared. It shows that the high pyrolysis temperature during the preparation of biochar will lead to a large loss of polar functional groups on the surface of the biochar, which will increase the hydrophobicity of the biochar surface. The ash content and carbonization degree of biochar increased with the increase of the preparation temperature and the extension of the pyrolysis time, but the yield and organic matter content decreased. At 200°C, biochar exhibits higher polarity and fatness. But with the increase of carbonization temperature, the aromaticity of biochar increases and the polarity decreases. It shows that the heating process is the process of biochar from “soft carbon” to “hard carbon”. The preparation temperature of biochar has a great influence on the surface microstructure. As the pyrolysis temperature increases, the number of micropores on the surface of biochar increases, the pore size is irregular, the distribution is uneven, and the pore volume increases. This causes the surface roughness to increase, the specific surface area increases, and the average pore diameter decreases.(2)The kinetic adsorption of pesticides carbaryl and diuron on loess is divided into fast reaction stage and slow reaction stage, and the time to reach adsorption equilibrium is 14 h and 16 h, respectively. The test results of the biochar adsorption performance show that the adsorption capacity of MBC-600 and PBC-600 is much greater than that of the biochar prepared under the conditions of 200°C and 400°C, regardless of whether it is the adsorption of diuron or carbaryl. Moreover, all the adsorption processes are manifested as a fast reaction stage and a slow reaction stage, and the equilibrium time for the adsorption of diuron and carbaryl by biochar is 12 h and 10 h, respectively. At the same temperature and the same initial concentration, the adsorption capacity of biochar made from pine needles is higher than that of biochar made from corn stalks. It is mainly caused by the difference between different biomasses. The analysis and research on the contribution show that the adsorption of biochar prepared at low temperature is dominated by the partitioning effect. With the increase of the preparation pyrolysis temperature, the surface adsorption is enhanced, and the adsorption behavior of biochar prepared by high-temperature pyrolysis is realized by two kinds of adsorption together.

The saturated adsorption capacity of diuron and carbaryl on loess added with exogenous biochar increased significantly. It shows that the physical adsorption is the main reaction type. The adsorption capacity of diuron on loess with exogenous biochar is positively correlated with the temperature of the system and the initial concentration of the solution, indicating that the adsorption is a spontaneous endothermic process. The difference in the amount of biochar added and the pyrolysis temperature has a significant effect on the adsorption of diuron by the loess, and most of the organic pollutants are mainly absorbed by the added biochar in the loess. The pH has a great influence on the adsorption of carbaryl, and the change in the adsorption amount of diuron is negligible.

The problem of soil pollution caused by the abuse of various pesticide pollutants has become more and more serious, which has attracted the attention of my country’s environmental protection departments. Moreover, relevant laws and regulations have also made further improvements and clear regulations, which makes soil pollution in my country a hotspot for environmental workers to study. At the same time, the environmental behavior of various toxic and harmful pollutants in the soil has also become an important subject in the environmental field. Therefore, it is necessary to seek a new way that is cost-effective and can improve soil environmental pollution, while also improving the soil environmental quality. This has also become an objective requirement for ensuring the safety, yield, and quality of agricultural products. There are great differences in soil structure and organic matter content in different regions, and there are also great differences in their ability to adsorb organic pollutants. Therefore, the research on the influence mechanism of biochar on the migration and transformation behavior of organic pollutants in the soil environment is not diminished. The heterogeneity of carbon itself makes the adsorption effect, process, and mechanism of different biochar have certain differences, so it has great research potential. This paper studies the role of KOH thermally activated corn stover biochar in agricultural adsorption, and verifies the reliability of the method proposed in this paper through the experimental studies.

American BioCarbon Completes Puro.earth Audit Certification – Business Wire

4 August, 2022
 

WHITE CASTLE, La.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–American BioCarbon, an innovative manufacturer of renewable products made from sugarcane bagasse, has successfully completed a rigorous certification process conducted by Puro.earth to verify its biochar as a carbon removal tool. American BioCarbon is now certified to sell digital tradable assets called CO2 Removal Certificates (CORCs) in the carbon markets under an agreement with Puro.earth. This certification represents a major milestone as American BioCarbon seeks to become the largest capacity biochar producer in the U.S.

The Puro.earth certification is a rigorous verification process which confirmed that American BioCarbon’s biochar is truly carbon net-negative and complies with Puro Standard’s methodology requirements including environmental safeguards. Independent assessors audited American BioCarbon’s production facility and validated the accuracy of the company’s data. The audit considers product lifecycle, requires scientific measurement and quantification of the removed CO2, and its residence time in storage. The verified volume of extra carbon absorbed in the biochar is then issued CORCs for every metric ton of CO2 removed and stored.

“We are pleased with the results of the Puro.earth audit, which confirm that American BioCarbon’s biochar is an effective carbon removal solution,” said Ned Dwyer, CEO of American BioCarbon. “We are proud to utilize an agricultural waste product, which otherwise creates a significant environmental liability, and transform it into a valuable climate-positive Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) commodity.”

“Biochar is recognized in the IPCC report as a route to terrestrial carbon storage. Puro.earth is proud to welcome American BioCarbon to offer its CORCs to responsible corporations that want to remove their carbon emissions. The large volume of CORCs increases much needed supply in the carbon markets,” said Marianne Tikkanen, Head of Carbon Removal Supply at Puro.earth.

American BioCarbon’s bagasse-based biochar captures carbon (that would otherwise be released into the atmosphere through bagasse decomposition or burn-offs) in a secure chemical structure, providing a stable carbon storage solution. When incorporated into soil, biochar is up to 100 times more stable than the feedstock from which it was produced, and a substantial amount of biochar’s organic carbon will persist in soil for decades to millennia. Biochar also offers environmental and agricultural benefits such as nutrient retention, improved water holding capacity, and increased aeration.

Puro.earth is the world’s first marketplace, standard and registry for science-based carbon removal credits. Puro.earth provides carbon removal as a service, helping corporate buyers create a long-term procurement portfolio to neutralize their carbon footprint and reach net zero. The Puro Standard focuses solely on verified net-negative technologies that can remove carbon at an industrial scale and store it for a minimum of 50 years. In 2021, Nasdaq announced its acquisition of a majority stake in Puro.earth.

Review The co-application of biochar with bioremediation for the removal of petroleum …

4 August, 2022
 

Biochar co-application can achieve up to 4-fold higher hydrocarbon removal than biochar treatment.

Co-application with bioaugmentation was most effective followed by phytoremediation.

No synergistic effect was observed in most of the co-application studies.

Modification of biochar before application can enhance in hydrocarbon removal.

Soil pollution from petroleum hydrocarbon is a global environmental problem that could contribute to the non-actualisation of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Several techniques have been used to remediate petroleum hydrocarbon-contaminated soils; however, there are technical and economical limitations to existing methods. As such, the development of new approaches and the improvement of existing techniques are imperative. Biochar, a low-cost carbonaceous product of thermal decomposition of waste biomass has gained relevance in soil remediation. Biochar has been applied to remediate hydrocarbon-contaminated soils with positive and negative results reported. Consequently, attempts have been made to improve the performance of biochar in the hydrocarbon-based remediation process through the co-application of biochar with other bioremediation techniques as well as modifying biochar properties before use. Despite the progress made in this domain, there is a lack of a detailed single review consolidating the critical findings, new developments, and challenges in biochar-based remediation of petroleum hydrocarbon-contaminated soil. This work assessed the potential of biochar co-application with other well-known bioremediation techniques such as bioaugmentation, phytoremediation, and biostimulation. Additionally, the benefits of modification in enhancing biochar suitability for bioremediation were examined. It was concluded that biochar co-application generally resulted in higher hydrocarbon removal than sole biochar treatment, with up to a 4-fold higher removal observed in some cases. However, most of the biochar co-applied treatments did not result in hydrocarbon removal that was greater than the additive effects of individual treatment. Overall, compared to their complementary treatments, biochar co-application with bioaugmentation was more beneficial in hydrocarbon removal than biochar co-application with either phytoremediation or biostimulation. Future studies should integrate the ecotoxicological and cost implications of biochar co-application for a viable remediation process. Lastly, improving the synergistic interactions of co-treatment on hydrocarbon removal is critical to capturing the full potential of biochar-based remediation.

Peat Moss Isn't Great for the Planet—but There's a More Sustainable Option – Levi Science

4 August, 2022
 

Jules Giuliano knows it’s ironic that gardening—something inherently good for the planet—often uses some materials that actually hurt the environment. So he set out to change that: In April 2022, Giuliano launched Rosy Soil, a carbon-negative indoor potting mix. Along with a team of scientists, Giuliano has worked as a lead researcher to create a soil with all-natural, sustainable ingredients that deliver nutrients and promote drainage—all while combating greenhouse gases.

Made up of carbon-negative biochar, vegan compost, and root-boosting mycorrhizae, Rosy Soil doesn’t rely on peat moss, the main ingredient in commercial potting mixes. While peat lands make up less than 3% of the Earth’s landmass, they sequester more carbon than any other terrestrial ecosystem. When these lands are mined for peat moss, this carbon dioxide is released into the atmosphere.

“Essentially, we’re using one of our most vital natural resources for sinking carbon as a potting mix,” Giuliano says. “I don’t think it’s about being like, ‘Oh, you didn’t know this’ because I didn’t know until recently. [At Rosy Soil] we’re hopefully trying to educate folks and push the business side toward, ‘Hey, let’s stop using peat moss and start using biochar instead.’”

Giuliano didn’t go to college for anything related to agriculture (his degree is in sociology), but about five years ago he made a career switch. Since then, he’s expanded his soil knowledge through a variety of farming experiences: harvesting crops at a K-12 school garden in Chicago, winning second place in a Cannabis Cup competition for best indica, working on a research farm at the Rodale Institute in Georgia , managing an organic urban farm in Atlanta. Now, at Rosy Soil, Giuliano has spent the last six months analyzing, formulating, and mixing new soils to create the best mix. At a greenhouse an hour south of Atlanta, he spends days running tests and plant trials, reading up on existing research, and testing soils made with peat moss against those made with biochar—the standout ingredient in Rosy Soil.

Created by heating up organic agricultural waste (like decomposing corn stock or wood), biochar acts as a healthy soil amendment that also stores carbon. According to the Rosy Soil website, for every ton of biochar produced, three tons of carbon dioxide are removed from the carbon cycle. “By opting for biochar, we support an industry that has the potential to sequester 2.2-4.4 gigatons of CO2 per year by 2050,” reads a report conducted by Rosy Soil to assess the life cycle emissions of the indoor potting mix.

The vegan compost and mycorrhizae (a fungi that has a natural relationship with over 90% of land-based plants) in Rosy Soil also contribute to added nutrients plants love without producing any waste or needing added chemicals. The compost also uses only “green or brown waste,” accommodating gardeners who prefer to stay away from animal products.

“The compost is awesome,” Giuliano says. “It’s adding in more microbiology, adding some trace nutrients, minerals that we eat, and also compost of some soil structure. So that’s going to help with our drainage or porosity—many other issues that we have with our soil.”

Because biochar retains water so well, Giuliano recommends that users water less often (especially because people generally tend to overwater already). Otherwise, the care process doesn’t differ from using a commercial mix—but by using a biochar blend instead of peat moss, you’re drastically boosting the eco-friendliness of your gardening.

Choosing eco-friendly products is not the only way to garden sustainably. Giuliano practices growing green by urban composting: collecting leftover food in bins of worms for a month or two before turning them over to his garden or house plants. You can also mulch, plant natives and perennials, save seeds, reuse your soil, and take other small steps to reduce the footprint of your garden.

Biochar from Cyperus alternifolius Linn.: from a waste of phytoremediation processing to …

4 August, 2022
 

Phytoremediation is one of the most powerful and viable solutions for developing countries to clean the soil and water bodies from metallic pollutants. Cyperus alternifolius Linn. (CAL), a tropical wetland plant, has been widely researched for removing harmful contaminants due to its hyperaccumulation ability. However, the waste biomass of phytoremediation processing may risk secondary environmental pollution. Thus, the preparation and application of biochar from metal-contaminated plants can be considered a new approach. In a 60-day experiment, CAL plants were irrigated with different concentrations of Zn(II) (200, 700, 1200, 1700, and 2200 mg·L−1), and then the plants were converted into biochar via the pyrolysis process. The characteristics of biochar including of surface composition and morphology, phase formation, and optical property were analyzed. The biochar enriched with Zn(II) at 1200 mg·L−1 had a bandgap value of 3.17 eV and consisted of carbon microparticles intermingled with ZnO and SiO2 nanoparticles. Furthermore, the adsorption and photocatalysis of the biochar were studied in the discolouration of methylene blue (MB), as a test reaction, with the maximum MB removal capacities of 55.2 mg·g−1. Such results will serve as the basis for new research aiming at the potential for reusing metal-contaminated plants to produce efficient depolluting biochar.

Phosphate removal from aqueous solutions with a zirconium-loaded magnetic biochar composite

4 August, 2022
 

Phosphate (P) removal is significant for water pollution control. In this paper, a novel penicillin biochar modified with zirconium (ZMBC) was synthesized and used to adsorb P in water. The results showed that ZMBC had a porous structure and magnetic properties, and the zirconium (Zr) was mainly present in the form of an amorphous oxide. P adsorption displayed strong pH dependence. The Freundlich model described the adsorption process well, and the saturated adsorption capacity was 27.97 mg/g (25 ℃, pH = 7). The adsorption kinetics were consistent with the pseudo-second-order model, and the adsorption rates were jointly controlled by the surface adsorption stage and intraparticle diffusion stage. Coexisting anion experiments showed that CO32− inhibited P adsorption, reducing the adsorption capacity by 62.63%. The adsorbed P was easily desorbed by washing with a 1 M NaOH solution, and after 5 cycles, the adsorbent had almost the same capacity. The mechanism for P adsorption was inner-sphere complexation and electrostatic adsorption.

Review Production of biochar from crop residues and its application for biofuel production processes

4 August, 2022
 

Crop residues (CR) are promising sustainable feedstocks for biochars and biofuels.

CR biochars are produced by pyrolysis and hydrothermal carbonization.

CR biochars could be applied in catalytic reactions for biodiesel and biogas.

Tar can be cracked using CR biochar and metal-loaded biochar.

CR supply, biochar production, and utilization for biofuel production are addressed.

A sustainable carbon-neutral society is imperative for future generations, and biochars and biofuels are inevitable choice to achieve this goal. Crop residues (CR) such as sugarcane bagasse, corn stover, and rice husk are promising sustainable resources as a feedstock for biochars and biofuels. Extensive research has been conducted on CR-based biochar production not only in environmental remediation areas but also in application for biofuel production. Here, the distribution and resource potential of major crop residues are presented. The production of CR-biochar and its applications in biofuel production processes, focusing on the latest research are discussed. Finally, the challenges and areas of opportunity for future research in terms of CR supply, CR-biochar production, and CR-biochar utilization for biofuel production are proposed. Compared with other literature reviews, this study can serve as a guide for the establishment of sustainable, economical, commercial CR-based biorefineries.

Crop irrigation with untreated wastewater is a routine practice in developing countries that causes multiple human health consequences. A comparative study was performed to regulate total Cr and Pb stress in soil and Solanum melongena L. plant. For this purpose, 0.2% chitosan polymerized silica gel (CP-silica gel), 1.5% zinc-enriched biochar (ZnBc), and three bacterial species such as Trichococcus sp. (B1), Pseudomonas alcaligenes (B2), and Bacillus subtilis (B3) were selected. Initially, a biosorption trial was conducted to test the heavy metal removal efficiency of three bacterial species B1, B2, and B3 for 24 h. Hence, B3 showed maximum Cr and Pb removal efficiency among the studied bacterial isolates. Then, a pot study was conducted with 12 different treatments having three replicates. After harvesting, different growth and biochemical parameters such as chlorophyll concentration, proteins, phenolics, reactive oxygen species, and antioxidant enzymes were analyzed. The results demonstrated that wastewater application significantly (p ≤ 0.01) reduced the fresh and dry weights of the root, stem, and leaves due to high total Cr and Pb toxicity. However, CP-silica gel and ZnBc treatments performed best when applied in combination with B3. The concentration of leaf total Cr was significantly decreased (91 and 85%) with the application of ZnBc + B3 and CP-Silica gel + B3, respectively, as compared to control. There was a reduction in stem hydrogen peroxide (87%) and malondialdehyde (81%) recorded with CP-silica gel + B3 treatment due to enhanced activities of antioxidant enzymes viz. ascorbate peroxidase (6-folds) and catalase (7-folds) relative to control. Similarly, leaf total phenolics (3-folds) and protein (6-folds) contents were enhanced with CP silica gel+B3 application relative to control. Overall, CP-silica gel and ZnBc with B3 application proved to be the most appropriate treatments and can be used in developing countries to limit the deleterious effects of total Cr and Pb pollution.

Silicon and Heavy Metal Stress in Plants: Current Knowledge and Future Prospects


UK students help people of Ecuador obtain clean water – UKNow

4 August, 2022
 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Aug. 4, 2022) — In Ecuador, the Tsáchila people have long endured myriad health problems linked to contaminated water. University of Kentucky Professor Wayne Sanderson and a group of students from the UK College of Agriculture, Food and Environment may have found a likely solution to the dilemma.

Health care providers from UK’s Shoulder-to-Shoulder Global program, a medical-aid organization under the university’s International Center that aims to improve the health and well-being of underserved communities in Santo Domingo, Ecuador, discovered that residents in the Tsáchila hamlet had a high prevalence of illnesses like gastritis, chronic diarrhea and anemia, which were traced back to the area’s unclean water. Access to clean water and sanitation are crucial to improving health, including decreasing the child mortality rate and reducing the risk of waterborne diseases.

“Indigenous people known as Tsáchila reside in rural areas without access to sewage or clean water systems,” said Sanderson, a professor in the UK Department of Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering. “Finding a way to improve their water quality gives our students a great chance to use their research and field assessment skills to solve a very common global health problem: not having access to clean water.”

Most dwellings get their drinking water from shallow wells less than 10 meters deep or from nearby springs and rivers. However, researchers discovered that coliform bacteria contaminated several wells and surface water. To ensure gastrointestinal health, the town needed practical, affordable and easy-to-maintain clean water infrastructure and sanitation systems.

Researchers found poor water sanitation in 40 of the homes in their study. The unclean water had negative health implications, including chronic anemia in one-third of the children. Because of their complexity and resource shortage, previous water filtration technologies had failed. The locals needed a long-lasting, low-maintenance and affordable filtration option to clean drinking water and promote overall health. The fundamental idea behind the design was to use agricultural byproducts, such as biochar, a black carbon produced from biomass sources such as agriculture waste, to build a single, robust, affordable unit that could supply daily clean water to about eight people. The main filter’s home is an easily accessible, 30-gallon food-grade polyethylene plastic drum. The drum is fitted with a top opening to directly discharge polluted water from the well. The simple transfer from a shallow well or stream makes beginning the filtration process easier. A detachable base rests against the bottom of the barrel. This holds a tray with holes drilled into it to measure fluid infiltration into a charcoal substance. To ensure even flow across the entire area, a compression plate is attached to a threaded rod and the charcoal filter media is placed on top.

“The goal of the system that we designed was that the villagers will be able to manufacture and filter the water themselves through their own filtration medium,” said Isaac Hamlin, a 2022 biosystems and agricultural engineering graduate. “This would eliminate the need to purchase a yearly or monthly replacement filter. Instead, the villagers can use the waste material created after harvesting crops. When that is put into a kiln and kept at a specific temperature for a set amount of time, you’re left with the charcoal material, which will become a physical filtration medium.”

The project’s biggest challenge was designing an affordable system that wouldn’t need any further funding for maintenance. In addition, it had to have a straightforward construction that anyone without technical knowledge could take apart for cleaning and put back together.

“There were some previous attempts in the community to create a filtration system, but they did not take into account the ability of the community to implement and maintain the systems,” said Dylan Buckingham, a 2022 biosystems and agricultural engineering graduate who helped create the filtration design. “Sometimes they would put in a filtration system that no one knew how to maintain or fix just because of a lack of resources available.”

Hamlin will continue to research the filtration system with Sanderson. They hope with more lab research they can determine exactly how much bacteria and other contaminants stay in the water after filtration, guaranteeing water safety.

Buckingham said he hopes to take what he’s learned working with filtration systems and interacting with the people in Ecuador forward in his career.

“I want to pursue the field and possibly work on building more sustainable practices in the water sanitation field. It was a great project, because I learned a lot about how difficult it is to extract microbes in water. It was especially great to work with different cultures and learn about some of the problems they are experiencing.”

The University of Kentucky is increasingly the first choice for students, faculty and staff to pursue their passions and their professional goals. In the last two years, Forbes has named UK among the best employers for diversity, and INSIGHT into Diversity recognized us as a Diversity Champion four years running. UK is ranked among the top 30 campuses in the nation for LGBTQ* inclusion and safety. UK has been judged a “Great College to Work for” three years in a row, and UK is among only 22 universities in the country on Forbes’ list of “America’s Best Employers.”  We are ranked among the top 10 percent of public institutions for research expenditures — a tangible symbol of our breadth and depth as a university focused on discovery that changes lives and communities. And our patients know and appreciate the fact that UK HealthCare has been named the state’s top hospital for five straight years. Accolades and honors are great. But they are more important for what they represent: the idea that creating a community of belonging and commitment to excellence is how we honor our mission to be not simply the University of Kentucky, but the University for Kentucky.

American BioCarbon's Puro.earth audit certification successful – World Business Outlook

4 August, 2022
 

The Puro.earth certification is a rigorous verification process which confirmed that American BioCarbon’s biochar is truly carbon net-negative and complies with Puro Standard’s methodology requirements including environmental safeguards. Independent assessors audited American BioCarbon’s production facility and validated the accuracy of the company’s data. The audit considers product lifecycle, requires scientific measurement and quantification of the removed CO2, and its residence time in storage. The verified volume of extra carbon absorbed in the biochar is then issued CORCs for every metric ton of CO2 removed and stored.

“We are pleased with the results of the Puro.earth audit, which confirm that American BioCarbon’s biochar is an effective carbon removal solution,” said Ned Dwyer, CEO of American BioCarbon. “We are proud to utilize an agricultural waste product, which otherwise creates a significant environmental liability, and transform it into a valuable climate-positive Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) commodity.”

“Biochar is recognized in the IPCC report as a route to terrestrial carbon storage. Puro.earth is proud to welcome American BioCarbon to offer its CORCs to responsible corporations that want to remove their carbon emissions. The large volume of CORCs increases much needed supply in the carbon markets,” said Marianne Tikkanen, Head of Carbon Removal Supply at Puro.earth.

As per the source, American BioCarbon’s bagasse-based biochar captures carbon (that would otherwise be released into the atmosphere through bagasse decomposition or burn-offs) in a secure chemical structure, providing a stable carbon storage solution. When incorporated into soil, biochar is up to 100 times more stable than the feedstock from which it was produced, and a substantial amount of biochar’s organic carbon will persist in soil for decades to millennia. Biochar also offers environmental and agricultural benefits such as nutrient retention, improved water holding capacity, and increased aeration.

CAMEROON: the biochar technique for the restoration of degraded forests | Afrik 21

5 August, 2022
 

Tree planting and land restoration operations were launched on 29 July 2022 in Minta, a commune located in the Centre region of Cameroon. The Minta communal forest, established on a transition zone between forest and savannah, is in a state of degradation due to many years of logging and mechanised maize farming.

In order to rehabilitate the vegetation cover of the region, the Forests and Rural Development Association (FODER) is planting trees using the biochar technique. Biochar is a porous, low-density material which, when incorporated into the soil, increases the porosity and aeration of the soil, making it suitable for plant root development. This property can be exploited for rapid growth of plants in nurseries.

Moabi, Fraké, Djansang, Pachi, Bibolo, Bubinga, wild mango and allanblankia are the species identified for reforestation in the Minta communal forest. “These species used for reforestation are those that already grow in the locality, in the natural environment. We chose them because they offer a double advantage, namely the collection of genetic material (seeds or wildings) for the nursery, and adaptation to the climatic conditions of the locality,” says Clovis Nzuta, project assistant at FODER and head of the reforestation process in the Minta communal forest.

The reforestation and restoration project of the degraded savannah of Minta is supported by the Cameroonian Ministry of Environment, Nature Protection and Sustainable Development (MINEPDED), and financed by the Japan Forests Technology Association (JAFTA). According to the departmental delegate of Minepded, Armand Djomo Ambassa, if the Minta experiment is successful, it will be replicated in all communal forests of the national domain in Cameroon.

This action is part of Cameroon’s commitment to the AFR 100 initiative, which aims to restore 12 million hectares of land in Africa by 2030.

Debate on Saratoga Biochar Facility in Morro continues. local – Darik News

5 August, 2022
 

MOREAU – A petition asking people to “say no to pollution in the Adirondacks” has received 625 signatures since a 70-person protest by the community-organized group Not Moreau on July 29.

The group includes citizens concerned with the plans going forward for a carbon fertilizer factory to be built at the Moro Industrial Park. The proposed plant would process up to 15% of New York’s biosolids, as well as waste from surrounding states, including Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Biosolids are solid waste from wastewater treatment plants that Saratoga Biochar Solutions will process into carbon fertilizer.

Those who are protesting are concerned that the process the plant uses, known as “pyrolysis”, will produce long-lasting chemicals known as PFAS, per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances. . According to the Environmental Protection Agency, these chemicals have been found in the environment, and excessive exposure to them can have harmful effects on the health of humans and animals.

People are reading…

According to the Saratoga Biochar Solutions website, the plant will use state-of-the-art air quality control to recover solids from incineration rather than burning them.

Holly Johnson, one of Not Moro’s organizers, said residents of Moro and surrounding communities deserve more information on a topic “even the EPA doesn’t fully understand yet.”

Biochar CEO Ray Aps said Knott Morrow’s questions have already been answered.

“The concerns raised by the Knott Morrow Group have already been addressed extensively through the Town Planning Board review and public hearing process over the past 15 months. The Knott Morrow Group simply refuses to accept replies , or believes in anyone other than themselves. They don’t believe in city leadership, or the planning board, or the New York State DEC, or the Saratoga Biochar,” the AP said Friday.

He acknowledged the growing number of supporters the group had gained, but also cited the new group in the city, the Yes Moro. Community-organized groups have put up signs around town that read “Know the Facts” and include the Saratoga Biochar website. He said the new group was in favor of “growth, development and eco-friendly businesses such as Saratoga Biochar”.

AP told post-star He believes the project will be approved because of the facility’s support.

“We are confident that the Town Planning Board will vote to approve our application as it is supported by multiple third-party reviews from the NYS DEC (Air and Water Facility Permits and Compliance), the city’s own water/wastewater and highway superintendents Saratoga County Emergency Response with the Glens Falls Wastewater Treatment Plant Authority, the South Glens Falls Fire Department, and the city’s own designated third-party engineering firm, LaBarge Group,” the AP said.

“Given the scope and depth of those reviews, the Planning Board voted against additional third-party reviews, calling it an unnecessary, repetitive step,” he said.

Johnson said she understands the AP’s view of spending time and money on additional studies, but she thinks residents deserve third-party review.

“In December, members of the planning board agreed to a third-party expert study paid for by Saratoga Biochar to confirm the answers provided by the company. Something happened and that changed, no one was ever told that. Why. People just want to know why,” she said.

Johnson said members of his group want the board to take another look at the proposal and its potential impacts on the community.

“We understand it’s tough work, it’s a tough situation, I get that,” she said. “But we’re really hoping that the planning board will hire an independent advisor to review the data. There’s still a lot of unknowns.”

The AP, however, said the group’s motive was completely different.

“It has become clear that the Not Moro movement does not really want an industrial park or any industrial development in the city, as they are now promoting the concept of relaunching the industrial park. I do not believe that The residents of the majority area agree with it,” he said.

He also returned to the topic of “valid tacit approval,” which is when the board doesn’t vote on a project within a certain time frame. The company’s attorney and city attorney reminded the board of this at a previous meeting, but the AP said it would “prefer its process to come to its natural conclusion with a majority vote.”

Johnson posted a recent State Environmental Quality Review, or SEQR, workbook, copies of the company’s completed and completed pages by the Moro Planning Board to the group’s Facebook page.

Her post urges residents to submit comments to the DEC expressing their concerns. He added that after reviewing the documents, the DEC will open a public comment period.

The AP said his company was discouraged by the posts on the group’s Facebook page and feared they were spreading misinformation.

“Recently, we see claims that Saratoga Biochar will import toxic and even radioactive waste, which is an outright lie and when planning board member (n) Purdue read a speech at a previous meeting And purposefully used those inflammatory words,” the AP said. “We also see that EPA documentation is being largely misrepresented, and the extensive third-party research and testing literature is being completely overlooked that we and others have provided.”

The AP said all DEC permit applications for waste management require the applicant to address topics such as radioactive and hazardous waste, regardless of whether the applicant is actually applying for permission to handle such material.

Johnson said one of the biggest issues with the SEQRs presented was the use of a 25-year traffic study.

“To me, it’s crazy to rely on a 25-year-old study in a city that has grown exponentially since then,” Johnson laughed.

The AP said he was not against the community.

“We know that the people of Knott Morrow are good people and they have a right to be heard. We just hope that the balance of the community is able to separate opinion and inflammatory statements from facts,” he said.

The next vote regarding the biochar plant has not been determined by the board as an additional 45 days to prepare a proposal was taken at its July meeting.

The community-organized group has placed signs around the town that read “Learn the facts” and include the Saratoga Biochar website. He said the new group was in favor of “growth, development and eco-friendly businesses such as Saratoga Biochar.”

Apy told The Post-Star he believes the project will be approved because of the support for the facility.

“We believe the town Planning Board will vote to approve our application as it is backed by a multitude of third-party reviews ranging from NYS DEC (air and water facility permits and compliance), the town’s own water/wastewater and highway superintendents, the city of Glens Falls wastewater treatment plant authorities, the South Glens Falls fire department along with Saratoga County Emergency Response, and the town’s own designated third party engineering firm, the LaBerge Group,” Apy said.

“Given the scope and depth of those reviews, the Planning Board voted against additional third party review, deeming it an unnecessary, duplicative step,” he added.

Johnson said she understands Apy’s point of view on the additional study costing time and money, but thinks the residents deserve a third-party review.

“In December, the Planning Board members agreed to have a third-party expert study, paid for by Saratoga Biochar, conducted to confirm the answers provided by the company. Something happened and that changed, no one was ever told why. The people just want to know why,” she said.

Johnson said the members of her group just want the board to take another look at the proposal and the potential impacts on the community.

“We understand that this is hard work, it’s a difficult position, I get that,” she said. “But we are really hoping the Planning Board will hire an independent consultant to review the data. There is just still so much unknown.”

Apy, however, said the group has a different motive entirely.

“It has become crystal clear that the Not Moreau movement is really about not wanting an industrial park in town, or any industrial development at all, as they are now promoting the concept of getting the industrial park rezoned. I do not believe that a majority of area residents agree with that,” he said.

He also returned to the subject of the “lawful tacit approval,” which occurs when the board does not vote on a project within a certain timeframe. The company’s lawyer and the town’s attorney reminded the board of this at the last meeting, but Apy said he would “prefer their process to come to its natural conclusion with a majority vote.”

Johnson recently posted copies of the State Environmental Quality Review, or SEQR, workbook, completed by the company and the pages completed by the Moreau Planning Board, to the group’s Facebook page.

Her post urges residents to submit comments to the DEC expressing their concerns. She said after review of the documents, the DEC will open a public comment period.

Apy said his company is discouraged by the posts on the group’s Facebook page and fears they are spreading misinformation.

“Very recently, we see claims that Saratoga Biochar would import toxic and even radioactive waste, which is an outright lie and took root when Planning Board member (Ann) Purdue read a speech at the last meeting and purposefully used those inflammatory words,” Apy said. “We also see EPA documents being misrepresented extensively, and a complete ignoring of the extensive third-party research and testing literature that we and others have provided.”

Apy said all DEC permit applications for waste handling require the applicant to address such topics as radioactive and hazardous waste, regardless of whether or not the applicant is actually applying for permission to handle such materials.

Johnson said one of the biggest issues with the SEQR that was submitted was the use of a 25-year-old traffic study.

“To me, it’s insane to rely on a 25-year-old study in a town that has grown exponentially since then,” Johnson laughed.

Apy said he is not against the community.

“We know that the folks of Not Moreau are good people and they have a right to be heard. We just hope that the balance of the community is able to distinguish opinions and inflammatory statements from facts,” he said.

The next vote regarding the Biochar plant has not been set by the board since an option for an additional 45 days to craft a resolution was taken at July’s meeting.

Biochar Application as an Alternative to Chemical Fertilizers: Impacts on Soil Health and Plants

5 August, 2022
 

Currently, global agriculture has faced two major challenges: increasing food demand to feed the world’s growing population and declining soil fertility. Since the Green Revolution inorganic fertilizers have been critical in increasing global cereal production. Global nitrogen (N) fertilizer requirements were 115 million metric tons (MMT) in 2015, and its application is expected to increase to 236 MMT in 2050 to meet global food demand. Despite the widespread use of chemical fertilizers (CFs), a significant amount is lost or unavailable to plants. Groundwater losses, gaseous losses due to volatilization and denitrification, immobilization within the soil system, or plant N uptake potential limits are all examples of applied N losses. Such environmental N losses have serious consequences, including water contamination, increased greenhouse gas emissions, altered global N cycles, and vegetative fluctuation. Furthermore, excessive CF use causes soil acidification, depletion of soil quality, and biodiversity loss, all of which reduce soil fertility. Alternatively, biochar can improve soil fertility and crop production, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and decrease the bioavailability of heavy metals in soil and their uptake in plants.

Excessive use of chemical fertilizer on the soil over time can impact its ability to support healthy crop growth and production. As a result, our continued reliance on chemical fertilizers, particularly N, for plant production is untenable. There is a growing interest in improving nitrogen use efficiency (NUE) in the current farming system to reduce associated issues while maintaining soil health and crop production. Increased NUE may also benefit primary producers, as synthetic N fertilization has become the most expensive aspect of crop production, particularly in developing countries.

Biochar as a soil amendment is an alternative source of fertilizer for compensating the chemical fertilizer requirements and is considered relatively eco-friendly for the environment. Although the advantages of biochar and fertilization are generally recognized, the optimal substantial ratio remains unclear.

This Research Topic aims to fill the knowledge gaps and gain new insights into the eco-friendly environmental application and the potential risks associated with biochar (including waste-derived biochar) and chemical fertilizer usage in agricultural fields. We welcome submissions, including original research papers, reviews, and meta-analyses covering the following topics but not limited to:

1. The use of biochar in pure form or combined with organic-inorganic fertilizer to improve soil physiochemical and biochemical properties e.g., bulk density, carbon sequestration, soil acidification, microbial activity, or nitrogen fixation.
2. How biochar application reduces the use of chemical fertilizers without compromising crop production and soil fertility.
3. The effects of biochar application on methanogenesis and greenhouse gas emission from agricultural soil.
4. The response of soil microbes to biochar amendment in the rhizosphere.
5. Impacts of biochar on the bioavailability of soil heavy metals and their uptake in plants.

Phytoremediation is one of the most powerful and viable solutions for developing countries to clean the soil and water bodies from metallic pollutants. Cyperus alternifolius Linn. (CAL), a tropical wetland plant, has been widely researched for removing harmful contaminants due to its hyperaccumulation ability. However, the waste biomass of phytoremediation processing may risk secondary environmental pollution. Thus, the preparation and application of biochar from metal-contaminated plants can be considered a new approach. In a 60-day experiment, CAL plants were irrigated with different concentrations of Zn(II) (200, 700, 1200, 1700, and 2200 mg·L-1), and then the plants were converted into biochar via the pyrolysis process. The characteristics of biochar including of surface composition and morphology, phase formation, and optical property were analyzed. The biochar enriched with Zn(II) at 1200 mg·L-1 had a bandgap value of 3.17 eV and consisted of carbon microparticles intermingled with ZnO and SiO2 nanoparticles. Furthermore, the adsorption and photocatalysis of the biochar were studied in the discolouration of methylene blue (MB), as a test reaction, with the maximum MB removal capacities of 55.2 mg·g-1. Such results will serve as the basis for new research aiming at the potential for reusing metal-contaminated plants to produce efficient depolluting biochar.

American BioCarbon Concludes Puro.earth Certification Process – Carbon Herald

5 August, 2022
 

American BioCarbon, a company which produces renewable products from sugarcane pulp, successfully completed a Puro.earth certification. The meticulous process aimed to verify biochar as a CO2 removal tool. American BioCarbon now can sell CO2 Removal Certificates (CORCs) in the carbon market with an agreement with Puro.earth. The certificate is an important step in American BioCarbon’s goal to become the biggest biochar producer in the United States.

Puro.earth is the first-ever science-based carbon removal marketplace, standard and registry. It offers CO2 removal as a service so that corporate emitters can build a portfolio to bring down their CO2 footprint and eventually achieve net zero. 

The Puro.earth certification proved that American BioCarbon’s biochar is carbon net-negative and complies with the carbon removal marketplace’s methodology requirements. The American BioCarbon’s production site was validated by independent examiners who confirmed the accuracy of the manufacturer’s data. 

“We are pleased with the results of the Puro.earth audit, which confirm that American BioCarbon’s biochar is an effective carbon removal solution,” said Ned Dwyer, CEO of American BioCarbon. “We are proud to utilize an agricultural waste product, which otherwise creates a significant environmental liability, and transform it into a valuable climate-positive Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) commodity.”

“Biochar is recognized in the IPCC report as a route to terrestrial carbon storage,”  said Marianne Tikkanen, Head of Carbon Removal Supply at Puro.earth. “Puro.earth is proud to welcome American BioCarbon to offer its CORCs to responsible corporations that want to remove their carbon emissions. The large volume of CORCs increases much needed supply in the carbon markets.”

American BioCarbon’s biochar based on sugarcane bagasse captures CO2 in a stable chemical structure that provides a secure CO2 storage solution. Biochar is as much as 100 times more stable than feedstock and a big part of the biochar’s organic CO2 will stay in the earth long-term. Biochar also aids the retention of nutrients, improve soil’s capacity to hold water and increases aeration.

Low-cost reed straw-derived biochar prepared by hydrothermal carbonization for the … – Springer

6 August, 2022
 

Uranium is the important nuclear fuel and its effective adsorption using low-cost materials is meaningful to environmental protection and sustainable development of nuclear energy. In this study, green and economical reed straw-derived biochar (RBC) was prepared by hydrothermal carbonization method using low-cost reed straw as feedstocks and citric acid as catalysts for uranium(VI) removal. RBC possessed larger pores and more oxygen-containing functional groups, providing more abundant adsorption sites for uranyl ions. RBC adsorbed uranium pH-dependently, spontaneously and endothermically, and pseudo-second-order kinetics and the Langmuir model could adequately describe the adsorption process. This work highlighted a feasible synthesis strategy of biochar for radioactive contaminants removal.

Chitosan coated biochar-supported nano zero-valent iron aerogel (C-nZVI@BC) was successfully synthesized for the efficient removal of Cr(VI) from aqueous solution. Results showed that the C-nZVI@BC has a 2.1-fold higher adsorption capacity of Cr(VI) than the uncoated sample. Ultrafast adsorption of Cr(VI) with 61%, 77%, and 87% of the maximum adsorption capacities were achieved within 1 min with the initial concentration of Cr(VI) at 100 mg/L, 300 mg/L, and 600 mg/L, respectively. The C-nZVI@BC exhibited high adsorption performance under aerobic conditions, and showed high Cr(VI) removal rates of >83% in a wide pH range (2–8). The Cr(VI) removal by C-nZVI@BC was fitted well with the pseudo-second-order kinetic and Freundlich models. The key mechanisms for Cr(VI) removal were adsorption, reduction, and complexation. The removal of total Cr was achieved owing to the adsorption/complexation of Cr(III) by the C-nZVI@BC. The batch and column adsorption experiments implied the application potential of C-nZVI@BC for Cr(VI) removal in groundwater. In addition, C-nZVI@BC could be a direct reducing agent for Cr(VI) and an activator of persulfate (PS) for the degradation of antibiotics, and C-nZVI@BC+PS showed 77% and 82% removal of tetracycline and chlortetracycline within 5 min. Overall, C-nZVI@BC was a suitable adsorbent for pollutants removal.

Cadmium (Cd) and lead (Pb) have become serious soil contaminants in China. In this work, we immobilized B. thuringiensis HM-311 (a heavy metal resistant strain) using vinegar residue biochar and hydroxyapatite (HAP) to form BtHM-311@HAP@biochar calcium alginate beads. In aqueous solution, the beads respectively reduced 1000 mg/L Pb2+ to 14.59 mg/L and 200 mg/L Cd2+ to 5.40 mg/L within 20 h. Furthermore, the results of pot experiment showed that the BtHM-311@HAP@biochar beads reduced the bioavailability of Pb and Cd in soil. The accumulation of Pb2+ in rice decreased by 39.97% in shoots and 46.40% in roots, while that of Cd2+ decreased by 34.59 and 44.9%, respectively. Similarly, the accumulation of Pb2+ in corn decreased by 40.86% in shoots and 51.34% in roots, while that of Cd2+ decreased by 41.28 and 42.91%, respectively. The beads also increased the microbial community diversity in the rhizosphere soil. These findings indicate that BtHM-311@HAP@biochar beads may be applicable for the bioremediation of Cd- and Pb-contaminated farmland soil.

Effect of biochar amendment on metal mobility, phytotoxicity, soil enzymes, and … – ScienceDirect

7 August, 2022
 

The impact of the biochar (BC) amendment on metal mobility is investigated.

Wheat crops show low metal bioaccumulation in BC amended setups.

BC amendment causes low oxidative stress by heavy metals in the plant.

The use of low-cost substances such as biochar could be a sustainable approach to reduce the mobility, accumulation, and toxic impact of heavy metals in crop systems. This study investigates the effect of biochar amendment on heavy metal (Cr, Cd, Cu, Pb, Ni, Zn, Mg and Fe) mobility, bioaccumulation factor (BAF), plant (wheat) metal-uptake, plant oxidative stress, and soil enzymatic profile in contaminated industrial soil. Biochar was obtained from slow pyrolysis of Lantana (LBC), and Parthenium (PBC) biomass, and applied at 3% rates in contaminated soils for wheat crop study under a greenhouse experimental setup. Results show in comparison with control setups, low mobility of Cr (14.15–16.35%), Cd (7.17–15.24%), Cu (9.81–12.97%), Pb (7.99–15.23%), Ni (1.52–2.38%), Zn (10.47–14.42%), Mg (48.85–52.89%), and Fe (19.13–19.90%) contents in soils. The heavy metal uptake rates were 63.08% (Cr), 78.07% (Cd), 74.61% (Cu), 78.11% (Pb), 75.73% (Ni), 69.71% (Zn), 28.78% (Mg), and 49.26% (Fe) lower in biochar amendments, compared with the control treatments. Similarly, the biochar amended treatments exhibited low oxidative stress in wheat plants than control setups. In addition, soil enzymes (dehydrogenase, β-glucosidase, alkaline phosphatase, and urease) alleviated in biochar amended soils indicating reduced toxicity of metals in experimental soils. In summary, this study indicates that biochar amendment in contaminated soils not only improves plant growth but also lowers the rates of soil and plant toxicity and metal bioavailability as well.

SOIL REEF™ PURE BIOCHAR – 1 CUBIC FOOT SIZE

7 August, 2022
 

— OR —

Category:
Tag:

Soil Reef PURE Biochar is a premium quality biochar soil enhancement made in the U.S.A. from sustainably produced wood waste and forest residue.  Our biochar’s particle size is 4mm and less, has a low dust fraction, and is delivered with high moisture content for safety and ease of application.  Approximate shipping weight is +/- 18 lbs.

Biochar holds onto nutrients in the soil.  It is best to add the biochar “fully charged” by inoculating it, so that it is adding to the total nutrient quotient of the soil. The easiest way to inoculate is to blend biochar with a quality compost in a 50/50 ratio, then let it “age” for at least two weeks. This primes the now “blended” biochar with the nutrients and microbes released from the compost.

Soil Reef™ PURE Biochar is and will be used in in a range of applications beyond its use as a soil amendment.  Use in remediation, offsets, building material, “engineered” composites and filtration to name a few.  These applications can get very technical, and may require certain biochar properties.

Biocarbon (biochar) I: Nature, history, manufacture and use in soil – SciELO México

7 August, 2022
 

ESCALANTE REBOLLEDO, Ariadna et al. Biocarbon (biochar) I: Nature, history, manufacture and use in soil. Terra Latinoam [online]. 2016, vol.34, n.3, pp.367-382. ISSN 2395-8030.

There are recent technologies that can help counter soil degradation and sequester carbon. One is the application of biochar (biochar) to the soils. Biochar is a material produced by pyrolysis of waste biomass or organic waste from urban life. Mexico soils exhibit a strong physical, chemical and biological degradation, which has not been assessed in its proper dimension. Recent literature indicates positive experiences resulting from the application of biochar to the soil, generating an improvement of the physical, chemical and biological properties, which result in increased crop productivity. The biochar, a recalcitrant form of carbon incorporated into the soil, acts as a reservoir of long life of carbon, delaying its return to the atmosphere as CO2, a situation that would help to mitigate climate change. An additional benefit of this product is that the raw material for its production comes from a renewable source and municipal organic waste, which often constitute environmental pollution problems. The generation and soil application is a relatively recent technology or alternative, which has been little or not used in Mexico. Therefore, it is advisable to know more about it and its benefits. Little is known about the effect of the type of raw material used for the generation of biochar, the effect of the pyrolysis is used for production or the effect it has on plants, as well as the presence of substances that could be toxic to soil microorganisms or plants. To avoid unnecessary risks or adverse effects on its use, it is necessary to characterize the chemical and physical properties of different types of biochar and elucidating the effect of its application on soil properties and crops. The answers to the above questions and the effect of the application of biochar to soils of Mexico will serve to generate solid foundation and propose their use as practice for improvement and as a mechanism for carbon sequestration in the soil. The development of technological processes for making biochar, feasible to be implemented in Mexico, is a challenge for local technologists and a potential source of non-standard work, apart from the possibility of generating additional income to producers of agricultural and forestry sector and municipal entities that could transform organic waste into a product with commercial value. This paper is a review of the literature and some personal experiences of the authors.

Letter to the editor: Some sunshine filters in among the gloom – The Post-Star

7 August, 2022
 

In Kansas, it was a victory for women’s reproductive rights — the vote 60% to 40% in a very conservative state. But it was more than that. It was independent people refusing to allow fundamentalist religion, right-wing Republican legislatures (created through gerrymandering and dark money), an extreme ideological Supreme Court, and bullies threatening and using their power to control our lives.

The majority of people do not want the overturning of Roe v. Wade, want EPA to regulate toxins in air and water, want to raise the minimum wage, want lower prescription drug costs and Medicare to negotiate prices, want to ban military-style assault weapons and raise the age for purchase to 21; want child tax credit and paid family leave (as every other democracy has), good public education; want the wealthy (the outrageous inequality between rich and poor increasing with the Republican tax cut) to pay their fair share of taxes. They want a sustainable and resilient Earth for their children.

How was this extreme right-wing minority able to enforce their will on the majority? Through misinformation and lies of a “stolen election,” corporate money, voter suppression, threats of violence, through fabricated and manipulated fear of “invasion,” “grooming,” “pedophiles,” “critical race theory” and a “communist Democratic conspiracy.”

There are real fears: Kentucky has devastating floods, destroying homes and lives, uncontrollable wildfires devastate California and New Mexico, droughts threaten farmers and the availability of drinking water. There is a climate crisis. Our democracy is threatened. People are tired of a tyrant (Trump) waving his hand endorsing candidates who are totally loyal to his lie of a stolen election and his clear desire for autocratic control, surrounding himself with worshippers like Stefanik, who, for power, has pledged total allegiance to him, betraying her constituents, our democracy, and our livable earth.

NUTRIENT CONCENTRATION OF RICE HUSK BIOCHAR – SciELO México

8 August, 2022
 

VELAZQUEZ-MALDONADO, Jazmín et al. NUTRIENT CONCENTRATION OF RICE HUSK BIOCHAR. Rev. fitotec. mex [online]. 2019, vol.42, n.2, pp.129-136.  Epub 16-Ago-2019. ISSN 0187-7380.

Biochar is a porous, solid material that is produced by the thermochemical conversion of organic materials under a limited or oxygen-free environment; it has physical and chemical properties suitable for the long-term storage of carbon, and potentially, improves the fertility of soils. The objective of this study was to evaluate the nutrient concentration of biochar prepared with rice (Oryza sativa L.) husk and added with citric, maleic and propionic acids at 5 and 10% as catalysts. The biochar was prepared through the hydrothermal carbonization technique at 200 ºC for 19 h. The yield of biochar and concentration of organic matter, N, P, K, Ca, Mg, Cu, Fe, Mn, Zn, Si and Na were determined. The highest yields of biochar (66%) were obtained when 10 % maleic and citric acids were added. The highest content of organic matter (71%) was obtained with 5 % maleic acid. In general, the three macronutrients with the highest concentration (mg kg-1) were Ca (4386-10,988), N (3067-4467) and K (327-3530), while the micronutrients with the highest concentration (mg kg-1) were Fe (77.1-238.3) and Mn (75.4-281.4), as well as the beneficial element Na (92.8-160.0). Due to its yield, organic matter and nutrient concentrations, the rice husk biochar could be used, potentially, as an improver of agricultural soils.

Kansas, Nebraska researchers use plants to pull toxic lead from soil | KCUR 89.3

8 August, 2022
 

In parts of the Midwest where lead mining and smelting lasted for over a century, communities are still dealing with toxic waste left behind by the industry.

Lead, a dangerous neurotoxin, persists in the environment, including in water and soil, where it can pose a threat to the health of people living nearby. The risk is especially acute for children, who can unintentionally ingest lead by putting their hands in their mouths and whose brains and bodies are still developing.

It can be spread to other areas, like yards and schools, by rainfall, and can also taint aquifers or vegetables in gardens, making them harmful to consume.

Now researchers are working to limit the impact of lead in the environment on people, and they believe they’ve found a promising solution: Plant life.

Phytostabilization involves moving lead from soil into the roots, stems and leaves of plants to prevent it from spreading and to limit people’s contact with it.

“One of the goals of phytostabilization is to take the site with lead and put it in a stable state, so that the risk is reduced, and the issues related to lead in the soil can be managed,” said Larry Erickson, a professor emeritus at Kansas State University and former director of the university’s Center for Hazardous Substance Research.

His research is focused on using miscanthus grass to stabilize lead in soil.

“One of the benefits of having vegetation in the soil, where the lead is, is that we can have an opportunity for the water to be taken up by the plant that keeps the water from moving in other directions and transporting the lead,” Erickson said.

Stabilizing lead in soil to prevent it from spreading can help avert and alleviate potentially dangerous consequences.

“In the operation of (lead smelters), lead has gone up and out of the smokestack and fallen on soil and there may be lead associated with the soil in terms of a five-mile radius of the shelter,” Erickson said.

Leftover mining waste can cause metal contaminants to spread up to 100 miles along rivers and streams when the lead is washed away by rainfall, Erickson said.

Erickson published the results of his experiments with phytostabilization in 2021. The focus was on Fort Riley, Kansas. Erickson found the root systems of miscanthus grass are complex enough to significantly limit the movement of lead on a contaminated site from rainfall in about two years.

That means lead in soil at a contaminated site can’t spread and flow to other areas and put people at risk of exposure. In an ideal situation, planting miscanthus grass would be paired with remediating the top several inches of contaminated soil to limit the spread of lead.

Researchers have known for decades that exposure to lead can cause irreversible brain damage in children, even at low levels. Children are most at risk because their bodies are still developing.

The Food and Drug Administration recommends children consume no more than 2.2 µg per day of lead from food.

Another plant-based solution for lead exposure being studied by researchers is biochar, a carbonized substance produced from plant materials with absorption abilities that could have applications for urban farming by reducing the amount of lead taken up by the lettuce planted in it, according to a 2020 experiment led by a student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

The results of the small study showed that adding biochar to soil reduced the amount of lead taken up by the lettuce planted in it.

Lettuce grown in the highly leaded soil contained 94.8 µg/g of lead per an 85-gram serving – far higher than the FDA’s recommendation for safe levels of consumption for children.

But the biochar-treated garden soil produced lettuce with just 0.41 µg of lead per serving. The control group used garden soil and produced lettuce with a lead level of 1.22 µg of lead per 85 grams.

Ryley Thomas, the student who led the experiment under the supervision of Michael Kaiser and Jennifer Cooper, professors with the university’s Department of Agronomy and Horticulture, said she designed it to help people who live in food deserts.

“Community Crops Lincoln is a community garden nonprofit organization, and they go into areas that have food deserts, and they tried to create community gardens where people can go and have fresh produce,” Thomas said.

“Unfortunately, a lot of those areas also have higher contamination of soils just by location, near highly trafficked areas, or railroads.”

Kaiser said food deserts are a major problem in Lincoln, Nebraska.

“This means a large distance between people and grocery stores,” he said. “A potential solution would be community crops or urban agriculture.”

Thomas and Kaiser sampled soil near railroads in the state where lead levels are often high. Adding biochar to soil could be a long-term solution for entrapment of lead because it remains in soil for hundreds of years. But they emphasized that the study was small and needs to be repeated before significant implications can be drawn from the results.

In June, Bloomberg Philanthropies awarded Lincoln $400,000 in funding to support a project to turn wood waste into biochar. The city will establish the Lincoln Biochar Initiative by working closely with the Nebraska Forest Service and the University of Nebraska.

“We are looking to build our own biochar plant and then produce about 700 tons of biochar per year,” Kaiser said.

Aside from its absorption properties with implications for lead-tainted soil, biochar also promotes plant growth, carbon sequestration and fertilizer reduction. The facility is set to be fully operational by summer 2023.

The Missouri Independent and the Midwest Newsroom are jointly exploring the issue of high levels of lead in the children in Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska.

Sorptive elimination of ibuprofen using activated biochar: modelling, non-linear isotherm …

8 August, 2022
 

The prevalence of numerous pharmaceuticals in sewage effluent discharges has significantly decreased the life and quality of water bodies. Ibuprofen (IBP), an acidic non-steroid drug, is one such pharmaceutical being widely used for anti-inflammatory properties. The present work investigated the sorption efficiency of base activated biochar synthesized from green waste Tamarindus indica seeds for removing IBP from simulated water. The biochar was instrumentally analyzed by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), energy-dispersive X-ray analysis (EDX), and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The influence of six operational parameters, viz., adsorbate concentration (initial), dose of adsorbent, pH, temperature, shaking speed, and contact time on the adsorption of IBP has been conducted using batch experiments. With concentration of 15 mg/L, pH 3, temp of 25 °C, sorbent dose of 3.33 g/L, speed of 150 rpm, and interaction period of 5 h, the maximum removal% of IBP achieved was 91.09%. The process of adsorption was optimized using the central composite design (CCD) method of response surface methodology (RSM) and artificial neural network (ANN). The non-linearized technique using isotherm and kinetic models was used to validate the process efficiency of IBP removal. Langmuir isotherm and pseudo-second-order kinetic models were found to be best fitted with non-linear analysis. The viability of the sorptive expulsion process was confirmed by thermodynamic studies. Reusability study of spent biochar showed its IBP removal ability even after several cycles of use. The maximum adsorption capacity was noted as 77.51 mg/g. The cost of produced adsorbent was competitive. The microbial toxicity bioassay of the solution before and after IBP treatment showed no adverse effects; thus, it can be discharged in the environment. Hence, the modified biochar synthesized from agrowaste could be a viable cost-effective adsorbent towards IBP laden wastewater treatment.

Keywords: Cricket faeces, Eucalyptus branch-derived charcoal, nitrification inhibition, nitrogen transformation, vegetable nitrate

Published on: 8 August 2022

A greenhouse experiment was conducted to estimate the influence of various application rates of eucalyptus-derived biochar combined with cricket frass on the soil properties and soil N transformation, and, in turn, affecting both shoot biomass yield and nitrate (NO3-) contents of Chinese kale (Brassica oleracea). Two consecutive kale crops were grown to investigate the temporal effect of the combined amendments of cricket frass and biochar. Six rates of biochar, 0%, 0.125%, 0.25%, 0.5%, 1%, and 2% w/w in combination with 0.55% w/w of cricket frass, were applied only once at the start of the experiment in sandy loam soil. Shoot biomass significantly increased under treatments of 0.125% to 0.5% w/w in the first kale crop and 0.125% to 0.25% w/w in the second crop compared to the cricket frass alone. However, the higher rates of 0.25% and 0.5% w/w within the first and second crops decreased shoot biomass relative to their lower rates in each crop. Tissue NO3- concentrations of the first kale crop significantly decreased under all biochar rates, whereas the opposite effect was observed in the second crop. These contrasting effects of biochar on tissue NO3- concentrations were attributed to nitrification inhibition in the first crop and nitrification stimulation in the second crop. The 0.125% w/w rate of eucalyptus-derived biochar was, therefore, recommended to be combined with cricket frass to improve yield and reduce tissue NO3- content in the production of Chinese kale.

Biochar affects methylmercury production and bioaccumulation in paddy soils – PubMed

Biochar has been used increasingly as a soil additive to control mercury (Hg) pollution in paddy rice fields. As the most active component of soil organic matter, soil dissolved organic matter (DOM) plays a vital role in the environmental fate of contaminants. However, there are very few studies to determine the impact of biochar on the Hg cycle in rice paddies using insights from DOM. This study used original and modified biochar to investigate their effect on DOM dynamics and their potential impact on methylmercury (MeHg) production and bioaccumulation in rice plants. Porewater DOM was collected to analyze the variations in soil-derived DOM in paddy soils. The results showed that the addition of biochar, whether in original or modified form, significantly reduced the bioaccumulation of MeHg in rice plants, especially in hulls and grains (p<0.05). However, MeHg production in soils was only inhibited by the modified biochar. Biochar addition induced a significant increase in DOM’s aromaticity and molecular weight (p<0.05), which decreased Hg bioavailability. Furthermore, enhanced microbial activity was also observed in DOM (p<0.05), further increasing MeHg production in the soil. Thus, the effect of biochar on the fate of Hg cycle involves competition between the two different roles of DOM. This study identified a specific mechanism by which biochar affects Hg behavior in rice paddy soil and contributes to understanding the more general influence of biochar in agriculture and contaminant remediation.

People across the country can all agree that we want to leave a clean and healthy planet for our children and grandchildren. One way to create a green earth is through innovative practices such as biochar. 

Biochar is produced by burning forest or agricultural residue (organic material) at very high temperatures with limited oxygen into a condensed black porous material that looks like volcanic rock or charcoal. However, what makes biochar unique is that it is produced using a specific process that eliminates contamination in the soil and stores carbon. The permanent storage of carbon means less greenhouse gas emissions are in the atmosphere which helps the Earth.   

Upon completion, biochar can be useful as a tool to combat soil degradation, improve nutrients and microbiomes and improve water retention and quality. Improving soil quality will have many benefits for people and farmers. Biochar has the potential to increase crop yields and provide consumers with higher-quality crops. 

Because I see the potential for biochar in Iowa and the United States, I recently introduced the bipartisan Biochar Research Network Act of 2022. This bill would create a National Biochar Research Network where biochar can be further researched and tested. Some of these tests include how well it sequesters carbon, how biochar reduces greenhouse gas emissions and increases crop production, improves marginal soil, improves water quality, and reduces the amount of fertilizers and pesticides.  

Biochar has the incredible potential to help sequester carbon in our agricultural economy and we must ensure that we are using every resource at our fingertips to promote this innovative tool. The benefits of biochar are not yet fully recognized, and I look forward to seeing what great things biochar can do for Iowa and the United States.

Using fallen leaves, branches and dead trees in US cities to produce commercial building and gardening products could theoretically play an important role in cutting emissions and nitrogen-related water pollution – though some researchers have questioned whether this is possible in practice.

Wood and plant debris removed from urban areas in the US often goes to landfill sites, is burned or is left to rot. But if all that tree waste were converted into useful resources, there would be significant local and national benefits, according …

Virginia-based Conservation Company to Construct First Commercial Pyrolysis Facility in …

9 August, 2022
 

~ Restoration Bioproducts to produce biochar and green energy ~

Governor Glenn Youngkin has just announced that Restoration Bioproducts LLC will construct the Commonwealth’s first biochar production facility in Sussex County. Co-located in the Town of Waverly with wood pellet manufacturer Wood Fuel Developers, the company will use pyrolysis technology to convert waste wood from the mill into biochar and syngas, a form of natural gas. Over the next three years, Restoration Bioproducts will invest $5.8 million into a new facility, create five high-paying jobs, and purchase 34,560 tons of Virginia-grown wood products while bringing major business benefits to Wood Fuel Developers.

“Technology and entrepreneurship are powerful forces driving the Commonwealth’s economy forward. Today’s announcement is further evidence that Virginia is the location of choice for companies looking to transform their industries through innovation,” said Governor Glenn Youngkin. 

“I congratulate Sussex County on bringing a first-of-its-kind green energy project to Virginia and commend Restoration Bioproducts for demonstrating the power of private-sector led, sustainable waste solutions.”

“Forestry is Virginia’s third largest private sector industry and is often the major economic driver in many of our rural communities. Therefore it is critical that entrepreneurs and innovators, like Restoration Bioproducts, apply new technologies to solve the business problems of today,” said Secretary of Agriculture and Forestry Matthew Lohr. “This project highlights the power of collaboration and sustainable solutions, two hallmarks of a thriving forest products industry.”

“Our partners have all worked in Virginia for many years, and we are very pleased to bring our first project using this exciting new technology to the Town of Waverly and Sussex County,” said Jeff Waldon, Managing Partner of Restoration Bioproducts LLC. 

“Pyrolysis and biochar application has been identified as an important technological approach to assisting agricultural producers improve soil health, and sequester carbon in soils to address climate change.”

“Sussex County is thrilled that Restoration Bioproducts chose to locate its operations in one of Virginia’s timber industry hubs. We’re excited by the innovative potential of their biochar and syngas products and wish them the greatest success,” said Susan Seward, Chair of the Sussex County Board of Supervisors. “We also greatly appreciate our partnership with the Town of Waverly and the Commonwealth in bringing this new business to the county.”

Restoration Bioproducts is a Virginia-based, private-sector conservation company that provides custom-engineered, environmentally-sustainable business solutions for companies dealing with agricultural or forestry waste. The company deploys pyrolysis-based solutions to sustainably produce biochar and syngas.

Biochar is a highly-porous, stable and carbon-rich charcoal-like product with a variety of applications, but is most commonly used as an agricultural soil amendment, odor absorber or animal feed additive. For this project, the syngas will be used to power the pyrolysis reaction chamber and a 500kw electric generator to provide low-cost, behind-the-meter electricity to Wood Fuel Developers. In this win-win project, Restoration Bioproducts benefits from a guaranteed supply of low-cost biomass and market for its electricity, while Wood Fuel Developers is offloading nuisance wood waste and reducing the costs associated with utility-supplied electricity.

The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services worked with Sussex County and Restoration Bioproducts LLC to secure this project for the Commonwealth. Governor Youngkin approved a $50,000 grant from the Governor’s Agriculture and Forestry Industries Development Fund, which Sussex County and the Town of Waverly will match with local funds.

Biochar Application to Soil: Agronomic and Environmental Benefits and Unintended Consequences

9 August, 2022
 

Biochar is increasingly being recognized by scientists and policy makers for its potential role in carbon sequestration, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, renewable energy, waste mitigation, and as a soil amendment. The published reviews on biochar application to soil have so far focused mainly on the agronomic benefits, and have paid little attention to the potential unintended effects. The purpose of this chapter is to provide a balanced perspective on the agronomic and environmental impacts of biochar amendment to soil. The chapter highlights the physical and chemical characteristics of biochar, which can impact on the sorption, hence efficacy and biodegradation, of pesticides. As a consequence, weed control in biochar-amended soils may prove more difficult as preemergent herbicides may be less effective. Since biochars are often prepared from a variety of feedstocks (including waste materials), the potential introduction of contaminants needs to be considered before land application. Metal contaminants, in particular, have been shown to impact on plant growth, and soil microbial and faunal communities. Biochar has also been shown to influence a range of soil chemical properties, and rapid changes to nutrient availability, pH, and electrical conductivity need to be carefully considered to avoid unintended consequences for productivity. This chapter highlights some key areas of research which need to be completed to ensure a safe and sustainable use of biochar. In particular, understanding characteristics of biochars to avoid ecotoxicological impacts, understanding the effects of biochar on nutrient and contaminant behavior and transport, the effects of aging and the influence of feedstock and pyrolysis conditions on key properties are some of the areas that require attention.

ARTi at the Biochar & Bioenergy Conference 2022

9 August, 2022
 

 

ARTi at the Biochar & Bioenergy Conference 2022

In August 2022 the ARTi Team is at West Virginia University for the 2022 North American Biochar & Bioenergy Conference (Link). The conference’s main goal is to address the reduction of barriers to policy, practice, industrial, and scientific efforts in biomass use for biochar and bioenergy generation. The event will highlight local as well as international research, technology, and environmental challenges related to biochar and bioenergy.

ARTi has brought goals of our own. In addition to presenting our pyrolysis units and further ARTi technology, high-quality biochar and our upcoming iTRAp CO2 carbon sequestration initiative, we wanted to focus on reducing the carbon footprint of our attendance at the conference. 

Attending a conference has an environmental impact. For green tech companies like ours it does cross our minds that we could and should see what we can do to reduce these impacts. But what are these impacts? Some impacts and emissions cannot be avoided as of yet. These would be the travel and the accommodations. But what can we do to generate the least possible ecological effects? 

Recycling as much as possible and avoiding generating garbage by replacing printed materials with electronic versions are places where we can mitigate our impacts. 

Small and repeated acts can show we can make a difference.

Making use of recycled material for our display materials was one of our impact strategies. The “found art” approach to up-cycling has some key principles. Through the salvaging process  new life and purpose is given to objects deemed nothing, worthless, or useless. 

 

ARTi’s display at USBI 2022

 

 

 

Biochar is part of the circular economy and that means circular thinking.

 

 

Under construction: Recycled materials to display and represent ARTi’s Pyrolysis reactor and digital interface. A work of Ecological Postmodernism or Material Ecocriticism? ¹

 

 

On to the second area where we can lessen our impacts. Digital materials can reduce or eliminate the need for printed materials. The use of printed brochures has a significant impact on a number of concerns, including the destruction of the world’s forests, which contributes to global warming, and the production of trash.

A Printed Campaign vs….

The environmental organization Greenpeace estimates that every year over the past ten years, 4.7 million hectares of forests have been lost, and that 35% of all trees that are cut down are used to make paper (Link). There are also large environmental impacts from printed materials in their production and transportation in terms of CO2 emissions and electricity consumption. 

A Digital Campaign

A digital campaign emits 300 times less COthan a printed brochure campaign and does not generate any physical waste. 

The process of turning wood into paper is one thing. Producing paper catalogs is another and the process uses a lot of water, energy, and money for shipping, not to mention that most of these brochures will be thrown away. These brochures ought to be recycled, if possible. But as these are frequently disposed of in non-recyclable waste bins, their environmental impact is increased.

Our brochures, flyers and receipts of purchase will all be digital. Yes, this is very standard nowadays. However, at a conference that is looking to address environmental challenges it becomes all that more important to be mindful.

Biochar boost for organic farming – The Star

10 August, 2022
 

Universiti Malaya (UM) researchers organised a community-based knowledge transfer programme called “Biochar For Agricultural Sustainability” at Merryganic Farm in Cameron Highlands, Pahang.

The programme was aimed at helping organic farmers increase their vegetable yields.

“Biochar is the latest agricultural technology that is produced by burning agricultural waste in a controlled process known as pyrolysis,”said Rosazlin Abdullah, who is chief researcher at the Institute of Biological Sciences under UM’s Faculty of Science.

“Biochar increases the fertility of acidic soil, increases crop yields and protects against soil-borne diseases.

“Organically grown crops do not use chemical fertilisers. Therefore, organic matter is the main supplier of nutrients to crops,” she added.

The innovation of biochar as a microbial host for sustainable agriculture was introduced to the organic farmers by Aaron Avit Ajeng, who is pursuing a doctorate under Rosazlin’s supervision.

Aaron, who recently received the Rising Star Scientist award at an international conference in Langkawi, said the biochar innovation was based on good microbial reproduction for plants and soil in the biochar cavity space so that adhesion of bacterial biofilms occurred.

“Mature biofilms will release these bacteria immediately upon application into the soil and act to fertilise the soil, thus increasing yields.

“Biochar is suitable for use in challenging environments such as extreme temperatures and problematic soil because of the nature of this biofilm, which is resistant to environmental stress,” added Aaron.

Merryganic Farm operator Tan Teik Kiang said the UM programme was a great initiative as organic innovations shared could benefit farmers in terms of quality and volume of their crop yields.

Electron transfer-based peroxydisulfate activation by waste herb residue biochar – X-MOL

10 August, 2022
 

Waste herb residue biochar (WBC) was synthesized to activate peroxydisulfate (PDS) for the removal of different micropollutants. WBC prepared at 700 °C (WBC700) exhibits discrepant adsorption and PDS catalytic performance to three pharmaceuticals and four phenolic compounds. At 60 min reaction time, the adsorptive removal by 0.5 g/L WBC700 varied from 31.3% (clofibric acid) to 97.6% (4-chlorophenol), while the apparent removal ranged from 36.1% (clofibric acid) to 99.5% (4-chlorophenol) when 0.5 g/L WBC700 and 1.0 mM PDS were applied. The oxidation of the micropollutants involves electron transfer mechanism via the surface-confined metastable reactive complexes (WBC-PDS*), which was verified by electrochemical tests, quenching experiments, electron paramagnetic resonance, Fourier transform infrared and in-situ Raman spectroscopy. The observed pseudo first-order kinetic constant (kobs) of organic removal did not exhibit a good correlation with its electrochemical redox descriptor (half-wave potential, φ1/2, for example) as reported in the previous studies. Instead, the surface oxidation rate constant (koxid), determined from a dynamic model considering liquid-solid mass transfer of micropollutant and the sequent surface oxidation by WBC-PDS* complexes, was highly related to φ1/2. In parallel, the liquid-solid mass transfer coefficient (KLa) of micropollutant was obtained from a similar model excluding the surface oxidation, and kobs showed a more significant association with KLa than with adsorption capacity (Qe). This study provides a promising approach to understand the role of adsorption and surface oxidation in an electron transfer-dominated persulfate activation process.

合成废药渣生物炭 (WBC) 以活化过二硫酸盐 (PDS) 以去除不同的微污染物。在 700 °C 下制备的 WBC (WBC700) 对三种药物和四种酚类化合物表现出差异吸附和 PDS 催化性能。在 60 分钟的反应时间,0.5 g/L WBC700 的吸附去除率为 31.3%(氯贝酸)至 97.6%(4-氯苯酚),而表观去除率范围为 36.1%(氯贝酸)至 99.5%(4-氯苯酚)。当使用 0.5 g/L WBC700 和 1.0 mM PDS 时。微污染物的氧化涉及通过表面限制的亚稳态反应复合物(WBC-PDS*)的电子转移机制,并通过电化学测试、猝灭实验、电子顺磁共振、傅里叶变换红外和原位验证拉曼光谱。观察到的有机物去除的伪一级动力学常数 ( k obs ) 与其电化学氧化还原描述符(例如,半波电位, φ 1/2 )没有表现出良好的相关性,如先前研究中报道的那样。相反,由考虑微污染物的液-固传质和随后被 WBC-PDS* 配合物进行的表面氧化的动态模型确定的表面氧化速率常数 ( k oxid ) 与φ 1/2高度相关。同时,微污染物的液固传质系数 ( K L a) 由不包括表面氧化的类似模型得到,kobsK L a 的关联性比与吸附容量 ( Q e ) 的关联性更显着。该研究提供了一种有前景的方法来了解吸附和表面氧化在电子转移主导的过硫酸盐活化过程中的作用。

Absence makes the value of engaging worth savouring – Haliburton Echo

10 August, 2022
 

By Darren Lum

I heard somewhere grief is about having love you can’t give anymore.
As I get older, the losses in my life have mounted, whether from time, circumstances or death. The difficult truth about life to accept is there are some people destined to be carried in the heart rather than to be seen to the sunset of one’s life.

The pandemic has affected us in ways we won’t know for years. There’s been the lost lives. The lost time between loved ones. The lost opportunity for connection. The lost civility – facilitated (I believe) in large part by social media platform algorithms that feed into hate. No one really wants to hear the sad stories we all have. Close friends will be there and attempt to console, but some sadness doesn’t have an answer. We all want to take the hurt away from those we care for and love. Sometimes all that we can do is sit with them and let them feel. The heartache. The deep-seeded pain that manifests itself while listening to a song, or see a scene from a movie when the heart strings are pulled, which are matched by the rising violins from a dramatic score. Loss is a part of the human experience. We may never be able to take away the sadness of loss. What we can do is embrace the time we have with loved ones. Those who are there for us even we believe they’re an annoyance. Everybody shows and appreciates affection and care differently.
I know everybody carries grief. I know I’m not alone. It was clear in interviewing people for their perspective on the late-Chester Howse, who loved Haliburton and put forth effort to various community causes and organizations to back up his affection. You’ll be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t have a good thing to say about him. I have meant to write this editorial and the article, Chester’s legacy goes to the heart of those he met for some time, but I didn’t have the emotional capacity to do it until now.
This year I’ve learned about taking stock, being grateful for those seemingly insignificant interactions.

Several weeks ago, I was walking from the post office in Haliburton I ran into Chester Howse as he left his vehicle. At the time, I didn’t realize this brief interaction would be the last time I would see him alive. The specifics of our interaction aren’t important. It was the feeling I received, which was like a warm hug. I couldn’t even remember the last time I had seen him before that because of the pandemic. So, I was shocked when I learned about his death from a posted flyer of his funeral while standing at the Foodland in Haliburton. My mind immediately returned to the feeling he left me in front of the post office. An immense feeling of warmth. The way your face warms and your eyes go wide. It reminded me how fleeting life can be and how important it is to value those who are in front of you, showing they care by saying, hi or listening to know how you’re feeling and what you’ve been doing recently and not just hear for the sake of being polite.
I believe it’s important to see what you have and appreciate it. We may never know when what we hold dear is until it’s gone. Sometimes there aren’t second chances.
Sometimes all we have left are memories. However brief they may be.
Good, bad and everything in-between. Make the time, see the value in the moments we have with people so when we see our sunset we can smile for what was instead of cry for what never came to be.

Application of biochar as an innovative soil ameliorant in bioretention system for stormwater …

10 August, 2022
 

Yao Chen, Qiong Wu, Yinghui Tang, Zhen Liu, Lilan Ye, Renyu Chen, Shaochun Yuan; Application of biochar as an innovative soil ameliorant in bioretention system for stormwater treatment: A review of performance and its influencing factors. Water Sci Technol 2022; wst2022245. doi: https://doi.org/10.2166/wst.2022.245

As an emerging environment functional material, biochar has become a research hotspot in environmental fields because of its excellent ecological and environmental benefits. Recently, biochar has been used as an innovative soil ameliorant in bioretention systems (BRS) to effectively enhance pollutants removal efficiency for BRS. This paper summarizes and evaluates the performance and involved mechanisms of biochar amendment in BRS with respect to the removal of nutrients (TN (34–47.55%) and PO43--P (47–99.8%)), heavy metals (25–100%), pathogenic microorganisms (Escherichia coli (30–98%)), and organic contaminants (77.2–100%). For biochar adsorption, the pseudo-second-order and Langmuir models are the most suitable kinetic and isothermal adsorption models, respectively. Furthermore, we analyzed and elucidated some factors that influence the pollutant removal performance of biochar-amended BRS, such as the types of biochar, the preparation process and physicochemical properties of biochar, the aging of biochar, the chemical modification of biochar, and the hydraulic loading, inflow concentration and drying-rewetting alternation of biochar-amended BRS. The high potential for recycling spent biochar in BRS as a soil ameliorant is proposed. Collectively, biochar can be used as an improved media in BRS. This review provides a foundation for biochar selection in biochar-amended BRS. Future research and practical applications of biochar-amended BRS should focus on the long-term stability of treatment performances under field conditions, chemical modification with co-impregnated nanomaterials in biochar surface, and the durability, aging, and possible negative effects of biochar.

Lichens have long been considered as composite organisms composed of algae and/or cyanobacteria hosted by a fungus in a mutualistic relationship. Other organisms have been gradually discovered within the lichen thalli, such as multiple algal species, yeasts, or even viruses. Of pivotal relevance is the existence of the lichen microbiome, which is a community of microorganisms that can be found living together on the lichen surface. This community performs a growing number of functions. In this entry, we explore the journey of lichens being considered from a dual partnership to a multi-species symbiotic relationship. 

Bioplastics have proven to be a viable substitute for plastics in some sectors, although their use in construction is still limited. The construction sector currently uses 23% of the world’s plastic production, both for the materials themselves and for their packaging and protection. A considerable part is not recycled and is dispersed into the environment or ends up in landfills. In response to the environmental problems caused by oil-based plastic pollution, the development of biocomposite materials such as bioplastics represents a paradigm shift. This entry aims to explain what bioplastics are, providing a classification and the description of the different properties and applications. It also lays out the most interesting uses of these materials in the construction field. 

Wood decayed and colored by fungi, colloquially known as ‘spalted wood’, has been a source of art and folklore across numerous cultures. From intarsia and marquetry in Italy and Germany to woodturning in the U.S. and carving and mythology in Chile, the uses of, and stories about, spalted wood are explored, as well as how those have shaped their surrounding cultures as well as modern science.

At present, a large number of researchers have studied the modified biochar to adsorb cadmium in water and soil. Therefore, we applied the material to cadmium polluted farmland, and sought the direct evidence of cadmium fixation, as well as the passivation mechanism of cadmium was also explored. The results showed that: (1) Under the different treatments by biochar, the growth of wheat  was better than that of the blank group. The dry weight of the blank group was only 0.062 g, while that of the biochar treatments were all over 0.125 g. (2) The content of cadmium in the wheat tissues treated by biochar was lower than that of the blank group, and the cadmium content in the blank group was 0.528 μg and 0.579 μg, respectively. The cadmium content in wheat cultivated by KM6 was the lowest, which was 0.2171 μg, only 37.50% of the cadmium content in the blank group. (3) The pH value of soil treated by silicate composite biochar reached 7.64-7.94. The increase of soil pH can also promote the insoluble precipitation of cadmium ions, thus effectively reducing the migration of cadmium in soil. (4) Magnetic biochar contains special iron-containing structures, which can react with cadmium to form stable complexes (such as C=Cπ- Cd, (FeO) 2 Cd and (Fe-R-O) 2 Cd). SiO 3 2- and CO 3 2- in silicate composite biochar can react with Cd(II) to form cadmium precipitate. In addition, the functional groups of biochar can react with Cd(II) to form C-COOCd+ and C-OCd+.

Bioavailability and speciation of Cadmium in contaminated paddy soil as alleviated by …

10 August, 2022
 

Biochar is an important material for remediation of Cd in contaminated paddy soils. However, different biochars have variable effects on bioavailability of Cd while single biochar cannot properly amend immobilized Cd. Co-production of biochar from peanut shells and maize straw at different mass mixing ratios (1:0, 1:1, 1:2, 1:3). The characteristics, properties and effects of co-pyrolysis biochars on amendments of Cd polluted paddy soil was evaluated.

Our research revealed that yield, ash, elemental contents and specific surface area of co-pyrolysis biochars have variable amendment effects compared with single biochar. The co-pyrolysis biochars have produced rich oxygen-containing functional groups and crystal structure, especially 1P3M (co-pyrolysis biochar produced from peanut shell and maize straw in mass ratios of 1:3). The addition of biochar has significantly enhanced pH and EC value, however, content of available Cd during incubation was significantly reduced compared with control treatment. The efficiency of biochars have reduced available Cd in order of 1P3M > M > 1P1M > 1P2M > 2P1M > 3P1M > P after incubation. The 1P3M was most effective in reducing CaCl2-extractable Cd concentration up to 43.97%. The BCR sequential extraction method has produced lowest exchangeable fraction Cd content and highest residual fraction Cd content in 1P3M among all biochar amended treatments.

It is concluded that 1P3M has a much greater potential to decreased the bioavailability of Cd in contaminated paddy soil. And 1P3M was highly effective for transporting Cd from soluble form to less toxic stable forms in polluted paddy soils.

Paddy soil contamination by heavy metals is a long term dilemma, which poses an impending threat to human health and ecological security [1,2,3]. Cadmium (Cd) is an extremely toxic heavy metal, has long been identified as major human health hazard [4]. The China’s National Investigation of contaminated paddy soils has reported 5.33 × 106 ha of Cd-polluted paddy soils in 2014. The Cd have highest standard exceeding ratios of 7.0% in China, for which remediation is necessary [5]. The previous studies have revealed that Cd can cause induced heart disease, and kidney damage etc. at accumulation rate as low as 0.001 mg/L via food due to its high mobility and toxicity. The toxicity of Cd depends on their speciation and bioavailability in contaminated paddy soil. The stabilization of heavy metals reduces bioavailability and mobility of Cd in paddy soil [6]. The several studies have evaluated ecological effect of different heavy metal stabilization, such as bentonite, lime, phosphate rock, sepiolite, etc. [7, 8]. However, investigation of cost-effective and eco-friendly heavy metal stabilization is the biggest challenge.

Biochar is a carbon-rich material which is produced from pyrolysis of agricultural and forestry residues during oxygen deficient environment [9]. The biochars have low cost, high surface area, unique spatial structure, abundant functional groups of oxygen with high cation exchange capacity [10]. The studies have reported that biochar is an efficient and environmentally friendly stabilization material which can be utilized for immobilization of Cd in polluted paddy soil [11]. Previous studies have reported that 5% (w/w) biochars from variable raw materials can effectively reduce Cd content in Cd contaminated paddy soil. The highest reduction of Cd by 81.9% and 65.5% was observed in peanut shells biochar and maize straw biochar [7]. Zhang revealed that biocahr of co-pyrolysis from sewage sludge and rice husk/bamboo sawdust have larger aromatic clusters and provide higher Cd immobilization than biochar derived from pyrolysis of a single feedstock [5].

The biochar derived from the pyrolysis of mixed feedstock (i.e., co-pyrolysis) has significantly improved efficiency of Cd eradication, which may due to improved physicochemical properties, such as content of inorganic mineral particles, carbon, oxygen containing functional groups and surface area produced as synergistic effect of their constituents [12]. China is a large agricultural country, producing 2 × 108 tons of residues maize straw and 3 × 108 tons of residues peanut shell every year [13]. However, management of huge quantity of residues without causing environmental problems is a challenging task. The biochars produced from peanut shell and maize straw have high effectiveness for immobilization of Cd in polluted paddy soil and may account for up to79.0% [14]. The preparation of biochar from residues is an appropriate method for remediation of Cd contaminated paddy soil. However, majority studies have emphasized on Cd remediation mechanism of single biochar, while mechanism of co-pyrolysis biochar was rarely involved. In this experiment, comparison of physicochemical properties of co-pyrolysis biochar (produced from peanut shell and maize straw in variable mass mixture ratios) was studied for evaluation of the effects and alteration of speciation and bioavailability of Cd.

The Cd contaminated paddy soil in this study was collected from a paddy field in Zhejiang province, China. The paddy soil samples were air-dried and passed through 2 mm sieve. The peanut shell and maize straw were used to make co-pyrolysis biochar from a farm in Zhejiang. The peanut shell and maize straw were cleaned with distilled water, oven-dried at 75℃, and milled through 2 mm sieve. The peanut shell and maize straw were mixed for preparation of mass ratios (w/w) of 1:0, 1:1, 1:2, 1:3, 0:1, 2:1 and 3:1. The mixture of raw materials was pyrolyzed in a slow pyrolysis muffle furnace (Shanghai Yi Zhong Electricity Furnace Inc, China). The pyrolysis temperature was raised to 550℃ at a heating rate of 20℃/min and was held for 2 h at peak temperature. The pyrolyzed material was cooled to room temperature in an inert atmosphere, and ground with 100-mesh sieve. The seven co-pyrolysis biochar samples produced from peanut shell and maize straw in mass ratios of 1:0, 1:1, 1:2, 1:3, 0:1, 2:1 and 3:1 were respectively labeled as P, 1P1M, 1P2M, 1P3M, M, 2P1M and 3P1M.

The incubation study was conducted in constant temperature unit. The plastic pots were filled with 2.0 kg of prepared Cd polluted paddy soil and thoroughly mixed with 5% (W biochar/ W soil) of each co-pyrolysis biochars (P, 1P1M, 1P2M, 1P3M, M, 2P1M and 3P1M), and the un-amended paddy soil was control (CK). All treatments were arranged in four replicates. The five Chinese cabbage seedlings (purchase from hezhiyuan seeding company) were planted in each pot and incubated at the paddy soil moisture of 60% for 60 days. All treatments were replicated three times. The incubation paddy soil samples were collected from each plastic pots at 0, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 and 60 days for determination of bioavailability and speciation of Cd. The Chinese cabbage was harvested after 60 days of sowing.

The yield of each co-pyrolysis biochar was computed using Eq. (1). The pH of co-pyrolysis biochar was determined at a solid-to-liquid (w:v) ratio 1:20, and measured with a Mettler-Toledo SevenMulti dual pH/conductivity meter. The total Cd was measured with HCl-HNO3 (3:1) and analyzed with inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectroscopy (ICP-OES, Optima 2000, Perkin Elmer Co, USA). The total C, H, O, and N content was determined by an elemental analyzer (Flash EA1112, Thermo Finnigan, Italy). Fourier transformed infrared spectroscopy (FTIR, Spectrum Two, Perkin Elmer, USA), surface area pore analyzer (BET, Quantachrome Instruments, Boynton Beach, USA) and X-ray diffraction (XRD, Bruker D8 Venture, Bruker, Germany).

where, Wbiochar is the weight of co-pyrolysis biochar, Wfeedstock material is the weight of peanut shell and maize straw mixed in different mass ratios.

The physiochemical properties of paddy soil were determined: The pH and electrical conductivities (EC) of the soil were measured with a Mettler-Toledo SevenMulti dual pH/conductivity meter using a ratio of soil/distilled water of 1:2.5 (w/v) for pH and 1:10 (w/v) for EC. Available Cd content (extracted by 0.1 mol/L CaCl2, 1:10, w/v). Total Cd (acid digestion with concentrated HNO3 and HCl = 3:1). Cd speciation content (according to BCR sequential extraction method). The number of certified reference material was GBW 07,405(GSS-5). The Cd was measured with Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (SHIMADZU AA-7000, Japan). The characteristics of co-pyrolysis biochars and soil are presented in Table 1.

The harvested plants were soaked in 20 mmol/L EDTA-Na2 for 15 min, and rinsed with deionized water for removal of heavy metals attached to plant surface. The plants were oven dried at 105 °C for 2 h, and dried at 75 °C until a constant weight for measured index. The plants were analyzed with Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (SHIMADZU AA-7000, Japan) by HNO3 digestion method for concentration of Cd [6], and total digestion was verified with a standard material GBW 07,603(GSV-2).

Additionally, translocation factor (TF), which indicates the ability of plants to translocate Cd from the roots to the shoots, was calculated by the following formula (2):

The one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) and LSD’s multiple range tests were conducted by SPSS 17.0 for statistical significance of the effects of co-pyrolysis biochars in Cd contaminated paddy soils (SPSS Inc., Chicago, USA). The values were reported as means and standard error of three independent replicates. The variations were considered statistically significant at p < 0.05. The results were visualized with Origin Pro 8.0 (Origin Lab Corporation, Northampton, USA).

Table 2 reveals production of all co-pyrolysis biochar in mass ratios (1:0, 1:2, 1:3) mixture between 30.44% (yield of peanut shell biochar) and 34.32% (yield of maize straw biochar). The production and ash content of co-pyrolysis biochar was enhanced from 31.74% and 27.72% (1P1M) to 32.76% and 28.52% (1P2M), 34.12% and 30.27% (1P3M). The production and ash content of co-pyrolysis biochar was improved with increase of maize straw content in mixture raw materials. It has been reported that yield of biochar depend on content of ash [15]. The production of biochar has positive relationship with content of biochar ash [16]. The production and ash content was improved with increase in maize straw content of co-pyrolysis biochar, which may be due to higher inorganic salt and nonvolatile matter content of maize straw than peanut shell [6].

The content of C was highest in all co-pyrolysis biochar, followed by O, H and N. Moreover, C, H, O and N contents of P were higher than M, which were 59.82, 1.77, 12.35, and 0.58%, respectively. The highest O content was observed in 1P3M (up to 17.90%), and O/C ratio showed highest value in 1P3M, which indicated that 1P3M may produce more oxygen containing functional groups during co-pyrolysis process than others co-pyrolysis biochar. In particular, the largest specific surface area was 3.53 m2/g in 1P3M. Previous studies reported that number of oxygen-containing functional groups is one of the important factors affecting adsorption of Cd by biochar [17]. The biochar may have high-efficient extraction of Cd due to its large specific surface area [18]. In this study, the 1P3M have highest O/C ratio and largest specific surface area. It has been observed that 1P3M may have higher-efficient extraction of Cd than other co-pyrolysis biochar.

Figure 1. indicates morphological characterization of co-pyrolysis biochar as an important index for adsorption of Cd. The surface functional groups of co-pyrolysis biochar are exhibited in Fig. 1A. The band at 3439 cm−1 corresponds to stretching and bending vibrations of -OH functional groups due to carboxylic acid on surface of biochar [9, 19]. The peak presence at 3439 cm−1 of co-pyrolysis biochar was more prominent, broad and stronger than single biocahr (M and P). This reveals that co-pyrolysis of peanut shells and maize straw could promote -OH functional groups formation on the surface of biochar [20]. The peaks in the regions of 2936 cm−1 were assigned to -CH3 stretching vibration. The band at 2842 cm−1 was caused by extension of CH2– bond [21]. The sharp band 1583 cm−1 (the stretching vibration of C=O) and 1394 cm−1 (the stretching vibration of C = C) with higher wave numbers of 1P3M and 3P1M may be attributed to rich oxygen-containing functional groups on their surface [22, 23]. The highly strong and wide peaks at 1035 cm−1 was originated from stretching vibration of C–O–C in 3P1M [24,25,26]. The results of FTIR suggested that co-pyrolysis biochar would produce more surface oxygen-containing functional groups than single biochar.

Fourier transformed infrared spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction of co-pyrolysis biochars

The XRD spectra from biochar was product from co-pyrolysis (Fig. 1B). The diffraction peaks at 27.1°, 29.0°, 40.9° and 50.6° in 2θ degree can be assigned to CaCO3, Ca3(PO4)2, Fe5(PO4)4(OH)3 and SiO2, respectively [27, 28]. The high-intensity peak at 29.0° was observed in 1P3M, which is probably due to high content of Ca3(PO4)2 in biochar after co-pyrolysis [29]. The intensities of co-pyrolysis biochar peaks at 40.9° were stronger in 1P3M than others biochar, which means that biochar produced from peanut shell and maize straw in mass ratios of 1:3 could promote Fe5(PO4)4(OH)3 formation compared to other ratios [30]. Additionally, a new 2θ diffraction peaks at 21.3° was observed in 1P3M and 1P2M, which might be attributed to presence of FeO(OH [31]. Similarly, co-pyrolysis biochar has stronger diffraction peaks than single biochar (P and M), and new diffraction peaks appear (at 21.3°), especially 1P3M. The result of XRD spectra indicated that 1P3M has high content of PO43−, OH and CO32− at surface of biochar, which could contribute to immobilization of Cd by precipitation reaction (e.g. Cd(OH)2, Cd3(PO4)2, CdCO3, etc.) [32]. Primarily, co-pyrolysis biochar could form rich oxygen-containing functional groups and crystal structure.

In paddy soil, pH and EC are essential indicators for bioavailability of Cd and plant growth [33]. The changes of pH in contaminated paddy soil amended with co-pyrolysis biochars are displayed in Fig. 2 during incubation. Figure 2 indicates non significant change in pH value during incubation period between 5.13 and 5.20. The pH of soil amended with biochar showed an upward trend during plant growth, and soil pH was increased significantly (P < 0.05) compared with control treatment. Moreover, there were sharp increase in soil pH within the first 30 days, which may be caused by strong alkalinity of biochar [12]. The pH of soil was in order of 1P3M > M > 1P1M > 1P2M > 2P1M > 3P1M > P > CK during period of 30 to 60 days of incubation experiment. The amendments of 1P3M, M, 1P1M, 1P2M, 2P1M, 3P1M, P have increased pH by 23.18%, 21.71%, 20.34%, 17.71%, 16.51%, 15.87% and 12.71%, respectively compare with control treatment. The high pH value was recorded from treatment of 1P3M amended within incubation from 6.37 at 60 days, which may be due to richest surface functional groups of 1P3M and content of CaCO3, Ca3(PO4)2 and Fe5(PO4)4(OH)3 at the surface of biochar. The alkali radical ions were easily released in soil solution, thereby increasing pH value of soil [34, 35].

The change in soil EC and pH in soils with amended. CK = un-amended (control)

The treatments of amendments with biochar have significantly (P < 0.05) improved EC in soil from 165.81–377.72% than control treatment (Fig. 2). The highest EC value was observed in treatments of P amended (591.4 us/cm), while lowest EC value was in 3P1M (329.0 us/cm) at 60 days. The improvement of EC in soil was probably attributed to effect of high inorganic salt ion (Ca2+, Mg2+, Na+, K+ etc.) and ash in biochars [18, 36, 37].

The available Cd concentration of soil was positively correlated to Cd of plants[38].The application of biochar has significantly (P < 0.05) reduced available Cd content in the soil compared with control treatment (Fig. 3). The available Cd in amended soil was significantly decreased in all treatments within first 30 days, and then increased slightly during 30–60 days. This may be due to improvement in pH value after addition of biochar, which contributed to form precipitates between alkali radical ions (such as OH, CO32− etc.) and Cd in the soil, thereby reducing the mobility of Cd in the soil [28]. The oxygen-containing functional groups (including -OH, -COOH, C = O, etc.) on surface of biochar can form a complex with Cd in amended soil, to further reduce bioavailability of Cd [39]. However, as the incubation time is enhanced, the absorbed Cd would be re-released, resulting in a slight raise in available Cd content of the soil at later stage of incubation. The available Cd concentration in the soil was in sequence of 1P3M < M < 1P1M < 1P2M < 2P1M < 3P1M < P < CK at the end of incubation, while available Cd content was decreased in amended soil by 43.97%, 35.34%, 31.90%, 28.45%, 26.72%,23.28% and 21.55% respectively compared to control treatment. The alteration trend of available Cd was consistent with pH during incubation. Generally, most of co-pyrolysis biochars have highest efficiency for absorbtion of Cd in soil than single biochar, especially 1P3M. Meanwhile, morphological characterization (XRD and FTIR) revealed that co-pyrolysis biochars (1P3M) would produce more oxygen-containing functional groups and inorganic salt ions than single biochar, which could increase adsorption efficiency of biochar to Cd in the soil [40, 41]. Therefore, the biochar of co-pyrolysis of different material in an appropriate ratio could improve extraction efficiency of Cd.

The effect of co-pyrolysis biochars on available Cd in contaminated soil. CK = un-amended (control)

The speciation of Cd was determined with BCR sequential extraction method, which could be divided into four fractions of exchangeable, reducible, oxidizable and residual [42]. Previous studies have indicated that exchangeable fraction of Cd were easily utilized by plants, however residual fractions were stable and were not utilized readily by plants [43]. Figure 4 shows variation in four speciation categories of Cd in soil after biochars amendment. The exchangeable Cd in all treatments was reduced in comparison to CK. The content of residual fraction was enhanced with increase of incubation time, which indicted that biochars could transport Cd from soluble form to less toxic stable form. The biochars applied could enhance soil pH, increase concentration of OH in solution, contribute to formation of hydroxide deposits and can promote combination of mineral components of biochar and Cd ions to form salt deposits [44, 45]. The addition of P, M, 1P1M, 1P2M, 2P1M, 1P3M and 3P1M has decreased exchangeable fraction Cd by 18.39%, 16.29%, 24.77%, 19.66%, 19.88%, 35.61% and 18.93% respectively compared with control at completion of incubation. The proportion of Cd exchangeable fractions has stronger reduction than other treatments in 1P3M, which was reduced from 16.7% to 10.8% during incubation. The concentration of Cd reducible fractions was lowest in 1P3M. The residual fraction of Cd was improved from 59.2% to 74.6% in 1P3M. It is concluded that the 1P3M has greater efficiency for extraction of Cd from exchangeable fractions (easily utilized by plants forms) to residual fractions (less toxic stable forms) than single biochars and other co-pyrolysis biochars.

Effects of co-pyrolysis biochar on speciation of Cd in contaminated soil at 60 days

The amendment of contaminated paddy soil with co-pyrolysis biochar could reduce Cd contents in Chinese cabbage in our study (Fig. 5), which reflected that the co-pyrolysis biochar had a much greater potential to alleviate Cd stress in plant [46, 47]. The results conveyed that the whole co-pyrolysis biochar amended has significantly (p < 0.5) reduced Cd contents of shoot (28.2–69.2%) and root (21.1–56.1%) compared to control and single peanut shell biochar treatment. The Cd concentration of Chinese cabbage in all treatments was in the sequence of CK > P > 3P1M > 2P1M > 1P2M > 1P1M > M > 1P3M in the shoot. And the Cd concentration of the root has also shown a consistent trend. The treatment of 1P3M was the best for reduction of Cd content in shoot and root compared to other treatments, and reduced to 0.12 mg/kg and 0.32 mg/kg, respectively. The Transport Factor (TF) of Cd in Chinese cabbage has indicated that TFroot-shoot < 1 in all treatments. It is concluded that biochar derived from co-pyrolysis of peanut shell with maize straw at a mass ratio of 1:3 could most effectively reduce the bioavailability of Cd in contaminated paddy soil. Previous studies have confirmed that the surface characteristics of biochar (specific surface area, oxygen-containing functional groups, crystal structure, etc.) are one of the main factors affecting its adsorption and fixation of Cd [6, 42]. Besides, this study found that the 1P3M had largest specific surface area, more surface oxygen-containing functional groups (e.g. -OH, -COOH, etc.), and high content of inorganic ions (e.g. PO43−, OH and CO32−, etc.) at surface of co-pyrolysis biochar. This could contribute to promote the conversion of soil Cd into low toxicity and low mobility substances (e.g. Cd(OH)2, CdCO3, etc.) through surface adsorption, precipitation reaction and increasing soil pH value, so as to hinder the absorption and transportation of cadmium by Chinese cabbage [1]. Additionally, co-pyrolysis biochar application could improve the rhizosphere soil environment and promote the stress resistance of Chinese cabbage [48]. In conclusion, among the different co-pyrolysis biochars, results indicated that 1P3M was effectively decreased the bioavailability of Cd in the contaminated paddy soil.

The contents of Cd in shoots and roots of Chinese cabbage grown in Cd contaminated paddy soils amended with co-pyrolysis biochars

The co-pyrolysis biochars produced from peanut shell and maize straw have improved content of ash and yield. The co-pyrolysis biochars have generated more surface oxygen-containing functional groups and crystal structure. The co-pyrolysis biochar can significantly enhance pH and EC values, and can reduce available Cd content than control treatment. The 1P3M amended has high efficiency for reduction of available Cd content in soil compared with control and other co-pyrolysis biochar amended treatments. The treatments of biochars can effectively reduce content of Cd exchangeable fraction and can enhance residual fraction concentration, particularly 1P3M. This study reveals that co-pyrolysis technology can improve efficiency of biochar for immobilization of Cd. And 1P3M has a much greater potential to decrease the bioavailability of Cd in contaminated paddy soil. Overall, the co-pyrolysis biochar produced from peanut shell and maize straw in mass ratios of 1:3 was most efficient for reduction of bioavailable Cd in contaminated soil.

The seven co-pyrolysis biochar produced from peanut shell and maize straw in mass ratios of 1:0, 1:1, 1:2, 1:3, 0:1, 2:1 and 3:1 were respectively labeled as P, 1P1M, 1P2M, 1P3M, M, 2P1M and 3P1M.

Biological Treatment for Biochar Modification: Opportunities, Limitations, and Advantages

10 August, 2022
 

Biochar is a prominent adsorbent for environmental remediation. The physicochemical properties responsible for adsorption can be significantly enhanced by using physical, chemical, and biological treatments of biochar. The biological treatment methods are advantageous in terms of cost-effectiveness and reduced secondary pollutants. The present chapter summarizes the need, methodology, modification mechanism of biological modification of biochar, and its implementation for environmental remediation. The biologically modified biochar can be obtained by either ex situ (pyrolysis of anaerobically digested residue) or in situ (using extracellular enzymes) technologies. The process includes colonization and biofilm formation by microorganisms on biochar surface and attachment of microbes. Biologically modified biochar metabolizes organic/inorganic contaminants and helps in adsorption, biodegradation, and bio-adsorption simultaneously.

Engineered Biochar as a Catalyst | SpringerLink

10 August, 2022
 

Biochar is a carbonaceous material obtained by thermochemical treatment of biomass. Preparation of biochar for a specific application can be done by changing its physicochemical properties via different modification strategies and selection of raw materials. Biochar is now being developed as an alternative catalyst  with many applications, including environmental remediation and energy generation, aiming to substitute conventional catalysts. Biochar is cheaper, has a lower risk of leaching and a wide range of functional groups. Pristine biochar without any previous modification often has limitations for its catalytic potential in terms of its lower surface area, porosity, mineral components, and functional groups. These properties can be enhanced by the modification of biochar via different methods. This chapter discusses the use of modified biochars as catalysts for environmental remediation, viz. advanced oxidation processes, photocatalysis, and energy generation, viz. biogas, biofuel, and syngas.
