Mapping Biochar Characteristics for Greenhouse Produce Safety
Authors: Khan, A., D. Harfield, A. Anyia
Description: This study evaluates the existence of toxic compounds in thermo-mechanical pulp sludge (TMPS) derived biochars obtained through slow pyrolysis process and establishes the criteria for manufacturing benign quality biochar for safe greenhouse-based food production. Accordingly nine TMPS biochars generated at different temperatures (450, 500, 550
