Modifying effect of biochar by mixing it with digestate
August 20-25, 2017
Biochar is a carbonized organic matter formed by the pyrolysis process. This material contains a high percentage of carbon from the original biomass which provides an idea to design “a tool to reduce the impact of climate change“. The positive effect of biochar on the physical and chemical properties of soil has been demonstrated in many papers. However, the issue of the influence of carbonized matter on biological processes in soil is still unclear, and scientific results is often inconsistent. In our work, we wanted to modify the effect of biochar by adition of another organic fertilizer.
