Efficacy of sewage sludge derived biochar on enhancing soil health and crop productivity in strongly acidic soil

Converting sewage sludge to biochar to serve as soil amendment and nutrient supplement to cropland may be an environmental benign and value-added approach to recycle the waste. Potting experiments

Natural Polymers and Their Nanocomposites Used for Environmental Applications

The aim of this review is to bring together the main natural polymer applications for environmental remediation, as a class of nexus materials with advanced properties that offer the opportunity of

Presence and Plant Uptake of Heavy Metals in Tidal Marsh Wetland Soils

Marsh grasses have been used as efficient tools for phytoremediation and are known to play key roles in maintaining ecosystem functions by reducing the contamination of coastlines. This study was

Soil Health Assessment and Management: Recent Development in Science and Practices

In the past decade soil health has been intensively studied as a science and practiced as a means to help improve the global social, environmental, and economic sustainability. This paper reviews the

The 3R Principles for Applying Biochar to Improve Soil Health

Amending soil with biochar is a promising approach to persistently improve soil health and promote crop growth. The efficacy of soil biochar amendment, however, is soil specific, biochar dependent,

Use of clay minerals for sewage sludge stabilization and a preliminary assessment of the treated sludge’s fertilization capacity

Certain clay minerals, i.e., bentonite, attapulgite, mixed clay of saponite and attapulate, and zeolite seem promising materials for the stabilization of sewage sludge in the perspective of using them as a fertilizer.

Use of clay minerals for reducing sewage sludge's microbial load and nitrogen losses

Purpose Preserving sewage sludge's N is important for its agronomic use, although N losses are not considered by the most common sludge's stabilization processes. This could possibly be achieved by

Potential role of dissolved organic carbon in phosphorus transport in forested soils

Soils of the northern boreal forest have undergone significant pedogenic losses of P. This study was undertaken to examine the hypothesis that the leaching of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) is a

Land Application of Biosolids

Abstract Biosolids are essentially organic materials produced during wastewater treatment which may be put to beneficial use. A popular example of such use is the addition of biosolids to soil to

Principles of soil chemistry

Chemical Monitoring of Sewage Sludge in Pennsylvania: Variability and Application Uncertainty

Application of sewage sludge to farmland in Pennsylvania (PA) is regulated by crop N needs and the cumulative loading of eight trace elements. A survey of 7746 sewage sludges produced at 177 publicly

Agronomic value of alkaline-stabilized sewage biosolids for spring barley

Land application of sewage biosolids is a cheap disposal method that permits recycling of plant nutrients, but there are concerns about its long-term agronomic value and environmental effects. This

Soil Lime Requirement by Direct Titration with a Single Addition of Calcium Hydroxide

Direct titration of acid surface soils is often used to measure soil acidity. However, titration has not been used for routine determination of the lime requirement (LR) in soil testing laboratories,

Phosphorus and nitrogen runoff from a forested watershed fertilized with biosolids.

Examining the pattern and extent of P and N runoff from a perennial stream draining a small, forested watershed in western Washington before and after biosolids application concluded that detritus moving into the main creek channel and ephemeral drainage courses may be the principal P source.

Reclamation of acid sulfate soils using lime-stabilized biosolids.

Excavation of sulfidic materials during construction has resulted in acid rock drainage (ARD) problems throughout Virginia. The most extensive documented uncontrolled disturbance at a single location

Effect of alkaline-stabilized biosolids on alfalfa molybdenum and copper content.

Application of ASB may have a greater effect on Mo uptake and Cu to Mo ratio of forage legumes than do other biosolids, and additional research is needed to determine implications of larger Mo cumulative loading with ASB for Mo risk.
