PUBLICATION: Co-composted biochar improved moisture and nutrient status of contaminated soil

Manuel Teodoro et al. recently published an article focusing on the application of co-composted biochar to metal-contaminated soil in order to support plant-growth relevant physical/chemical properties of the soil. A woody-biochar was added to waste biomass during a composting process. The resulting compost-char hastened the composting process, increased moisture retention and promoted plant growth.
