Efficiency of dye adsorption by biochars produced from residues of two rice varieties, Japanese Koshihikari and Vietnamese IR50404
Adsorption of Methylene Blue (MB) and Bromocresol Green (BG) were examined by using biochars produced from rice residues, straw and husk of Japanese Koshihikari and Vietnamese IR50404 rice varieties,
Cu- and Zn-doped alkali activated mortar – Properties and durability in (bio)chemically aggressive wastewater environments
Abstract Metakaolin-based alkali activated mortars (AAM) - with and without CuSO4·5H2O and ZnO addition (mass ratio Mn+/solid binder 0.08% to 1.7%) - were casted and exposed within an extensive
Effects of five different biochars on aggregation, water retention and mechanical properties of paddy soil: A field experiment of three-season crops
Abstract Biochar can improve a number of soil physical properties but few studies focused on the impacts of different biochars on soil Atterberg limits and mechanical strength in paddy fields. A
Evaluation of thermal properties of phase change material-integrated artificial stone according to biochar loading content
Abstract Biochar is biomass that has undergone pyrolysis and contains many pores; therefore, it can effectively be used as a building material. This experiment aims to improve the thermal performance
Hydrothermal carbonization as an alternative sanitation technology: process optimization and development of low-cost reactor
Background: The provision of safe sanitation services is essential for human well-being and environmental integrity, but it is often lacking in less developed communities with insufficient financial
Multi-task prediction and optimization of hydrochar properties from high-moisture municipal solid waste: Application of machine learning on waste-to-resource
The results showed that deep neural network (DNN) model was the best one for joint prediction of both fuel properties (FP) and carbon capture and storage (CCS) stability of hydrochar with an average R2 and root mean squared error (RMSE) of 0.29.
Potential role of biochar in advanced oxidation processes: A sustainable approach
Abstract Biochar, a multifaceted and sustainable carbonaceous material has gained extensive research attention over the past couple of decades in advanced oxidation processes (AOP) owing to its
Recent trends in biochar integration with anaerobic fermentation: Win-win strategies in a closed-loop
Abstract Anaerobic fermentation (AF) is a widely used process for the transformation of organic waste into biogas. However, despite its ubiquitous use, it has several limiting factors, including low
Release of essential plant nutrients from manure- and wood-based biochars
Abstract Several biochars have a considerable amount of essential plant nutrients; however, the release of those nutrients in soil is not well understood. Therefore, in this study, six biochars with
Solid biofuel production from spent coffee ground wastes: Process optimisation, characterisation and kinetic studies
Abstract The massive generation of spent coffee ground wastes has become an environmental concern around the world. Thus, in this research work, spent coffee grounds of Coffea arabica species were
