Biochar-assisted Remediation of Contaminated Soils Under Changing Climate summarizes recent progress in understanding (a) metal-biochar interactions in soils, (b) potential risks associated with biochar amendment, and (c) the application of biochar for the remediation of HM polluted soils. In addition, research gaps and future directions in understanding biochar-metal interactions in soils is also explored. As soil contamination with heavy metals like Cr, Co, Cu, Ni, Mn, Cd, Pb, and Zn is becoming a big problem across the globe, especially in developed countries, this book elucidates on risks and future directions.

Globally, it has become a serious threat to human health and ecosystem integrity. applying amendments like phosphate compounds, liming materials, clay minerals, coal fly ash, organic composts, metal oxides, and biochar to heavy metals contaminated soil is considered one of the most promising in-situ remediation techniques. Biochar has become one of the most attractive research hotspots as a result of its special properties, along with its important role in climate change, global biogeochemical cycle, and environmental system.
