Potential of biochar and soils for effluent decontamination

Pascal Boivin

Producing Terra Preta like soil substrates with up to 75% biochar may not only help to improve plant growth performance but could also be used to decontaminate urban effluents in so called biobeds. Pascal Boivin introduces into the field of soil substrate characterisation and shows how biological activated biochar could improve its growth and decontamination potential.
