Project title: Development and application of hydrogeochemical models in metal contaminated soils treated by Biochar
Programme: MŠMT - LD - COST CZ (2011-2017)
Project coordinator: FES CULS
Project leader: Mgr. Lukáš Trakal, Ph.D.
Project schedule: 2013-2016
Total project budget of FES CULS: 1 642 ths. CZK
Main aim of this project is to assess positive impact of biochar application into the environment using simulation of metal transport in contaminated soils by hydrogeochemical modelling. For this propose the project will be divided into following particular aims: (1) production and determination of main biochar characteristics; (2) laboratory production of the biochar; (3) numerical determination of hydropedological and geochemical parameters using column experiment; (4) multidisciplinary hydrogeochemical simulation of metal transport though the soil profile after biochar application; and (5) in situ field experiment and consequent multidimensional and multidisciplinary modelling programme.
