Gasification biochar as soil amendment for carbon sequestration and soil quality

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference abstract in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


Thermal gasification of biomass is an efficient and flexible way to generate energy. Besides the energy, avaluable by-product, biochar, is produced. Biochar contains a considerable amount of recalcitrant carbon thathas potential for soil carbon sequestration and soil quality improvement if recycled back to agriculture soils. To determine the effect of gasification biochar on soil processes and crop yield, a short-term incubation study was conducted and a field trial has been established.
