Short‐term effects of biochar on soil heavy metal mobility are controlled by intra‐particle diffusion and soil pH increase
Summary Biochar, the solid product of biomass pyrolysis, can be used as a soil amendment to stabilize metals in contaminated soils. The effects of biochar on the mobility of metals in soils are,Expand

Photochemical degradation of diethyl phthalate with UV/H2O2.
The decomposition of diethyl phthalate (DEP) in water using UV-H2O2 process was investigated in this paper. DEP cannot be effectively removed by UV radiation and H2O2 oxidation alone, while UV-H2O2Expand

Agromining: farming for metals in the future?
Phytomining technology employs hyperaccumulator plants to take up metal in harvestable plant biomass. Harvesting, drying and incineration of the biomass generates a high-grade bio-ore. We proposeExpand

Impact of chemical oxidation on soil quality.
Oxidation treatment helps to reduce the polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) load in contaminated soils but it may also have an effect on the soil quality. The impact of permanganate and FentonExpand

Boron removal from drinking water with a boron selective resin: is the treatment really selective?
Abstract Drinking water and even mineral water may contain boron until a few ppm and WHO has recommended a limit of 0.3 mg boron l −1 . The treatment by the resin Amberlite IRA743 seems to be theExpand

Adsorption-reduction removal of Cr(VI) by tobacco petiole pyrolytic biochar: Batch experiment, kinetic and mechanism studies.
Tobacco petiole biochar (TPBC) was prepared via pyrolysis and used for Cr(VI) removal. Cr(VI) removal efficiency was reduced by pyrolytic temperature (PyT) increase which mainly affected byExpand
