Research Project: Nanoscale Interactions Between Engineered Nanomaterials and Biochar

Location: Commodity Utilization Research

Project Number: 6054-41000-110-24-R
Project Type: Reimbursable Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Mar 1, 2012
End Date: Feb 26, 2016

The objective of this research is to elucidate fundamental mechanisms of nanoscale interactions between engineered nanomaterials and biochar in soil.

Various porisimetry and microscopy techniques will be employed to understand the surface characteristics of biochar. In addition to sorption/desorption/elusion behaviors of nanomaterials with and without soil, plant/worm assays will be conducted.
