Biochar Application in Soil to Immobilize Heavy Metals: Fundamentals and Case Studies covers biochar’s application to soil heavy metal immobilization. The book covers biochar’s effect on soil micro-and macro-properties, assessment of heavy metal stability in biochar-treated soil, and long-term stability of heavy metals in biochar-treated soil. A notable feature of this book includes its extensive use of case studies. Chapters focus on small-scale field trials and medium to large-scale industrial applications of biochar to immobilize soil heavy metals. In addition, the flow of the whole book follows “mechanisms-to-applications-to-case studies,” allowing readers to translate the fundamentals to practical applications.

This book provides soil and environmental scientists with the tools they need to build the links between micro-level surface chemistry and macro-level engineering performance.
