Biochar can be utilised to transfer carbon dioxide from the atmosphere into soils. It can also be used for soil enhancement, due to its attitude to hold water and retain nutrients in soil by adsorbing NH4+ and PO43- ions. Due to its adsorbing capacity, biochar finds applications in removal of pollutants such as ammonia, mercury and organic compounds from waste water.
