Biochar for gas sensors devices
August 20-25, 2017
In recent years, biochar applications are present in many fields . It has been studied as substitution for more expensive carbon materials like carbon nanotubes, graphene and others. The evident advantage for biochar is its low cost of production, being an environmentally friendly source of huge carbon content.
On the other hand, nowadays the main application of this material is as field amendment in agriculture . Starting for the peculiarity of biochar, it is possible to modify its features. For instance, after high temperature treatments, its surface area can increase sharply.
