We cordially invite you to a seminar entitled "Engineered Biochar – A Smart and Sustainable Solution to Biomass Burning, Soil Management, Food Security, Water Purification and Climate Change Mitigation" that will be held on Thursday 20th June 2019 at 3.00 pm in room Z1 (building MCEV I, 1st floor) at the Faculty of Environmental Sciences, CZU Prague.
The seminar will be given by Prof. Dinesh Mohan from the School of Environmental Sciences Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi (India), one of the front world experts on biochar (h-index = 60). The goal of his visit is to start Czech-Indian cooperation in the frame of the preparation of a joint project with FES CZU Prague. Prof. Mohan is involved in the development of sustainable treatment technologies for contaminants removal and recovery. He has developed/synthesized variety of activated carbons/magnetic carbons/nano-engineered porous solids/biochars adsorbents, metal oxide adsorbents, mixed hybrid metal oxide adsorbents with different surface chemistries and adsorption mechanisms for inorganic and organic contaminants. He is heavily involved in biochar development, characterization and utilization in water filtration, soil immobilization and fertility, carbon sequestration and climate change mitigation.
This talk is one of the first activities of the newly formed Biochar Platform at FES CZU Prague.
All interested are welcome!
