Biochar is being increasingly used for the enhancement of soil fertility and quality, removal of various environmental contaminants, and carbon sequestration. Moreover, recent research focusing on biochar has heightened interest in a wide range of applications in the fields of engineering, health care, and life sciences. These studies have enhanced the commercial potential of biochar. The special issue is intended to bring together academia and industry to share knowledge and experiences and to showcase innovations and achievements.
The biochar undergoes a paradigm shift toward the development of the next generation of biochar applications with more attention to enhancing the biochar global market; carbon neutrality; and environmental, social, and governance (ESG) considerations.
This special issue will focus on novel applications of biochar and will provide a unique platform for sharing knowledge on all aspects of biochar among a broad international scientific community, policy makers, and industrial personnel.
Short list of topics of interest:
