99 Environmental/Agronomic Uses of Biochars

Poster Session
ASA Section: Environmental Quality
Biochar has a multifunctional role in both environmental and agronomic sectors.  Due to its all purpose services, biochar can be used not only to improve soil health, but can also be used in the environmental sciences.  This includes clean up of waste streams and mine spoils.  This session will provide an opportunity for the varied roles of biochar to be discussed.
