New project: KOKOSAN II


In the project KOKOSAN II an innovative biochar based in-situ soil remediation method with a particularly favorable overall environmental footprint will be developed. We have previously shown that organic contaminants and heavy metals in soil can be immobilized via sorption on biochar (or activated biochar). Thereby, the biochar type and application rate will depend on the contaminant mixture and soil specific properties. To date these dependencies, especially the effect of soil type on biochar performance remain poorly understood and will be a key aim for KOKOSAN II.
