Biochar for Environmental Management: Science and Technology by Johannes Lehmann,Stephen Joseph

By Johannes Lehmann,Stephen Joseph

Biochar is the carbon-rich product while biomass (such as wooden, manure or crop residues) is heated in a closed box with very little on hand air. it may be used to enhance agriculture and the surroundings in numerous methods, and its balance in soil and greater nutrient-retention homes make it an awesome soil modification to extend crop yields. as well as this, biochar sequestration, together with sustainable biomass creation, might be carbon-negative and hence used to actively eliminate carbon dioxide from the ambience, with significant implications for mitigation of weather swap. Biochar creation is also mixed with bioenergy creation by using the gases which are given off within the pyrolysis process.

This publication is the 1st to synthesize the increasing learn literature in this subject. The book's interdisciplinary strategy, which covers engineering, environmental sciences, agricultural sciences, economics and coverage, is a crucial software at this level of biochar expertise improvement. This finished assessment of present wisdom should be of curiosity to complicated scholars, researchers and execs in quite a lot of disciplines.
