Biochar from manure waste enhances soils

6 mayo 2015

Researchers have obtained biochar using manure waste, a new material that can improve soil properties and increase crop yields. The results suggest an optimal solution to manage the manure from chicken and cattle. Biochar, a material obtained after thermal treatment of this waste through pyrolysis, is an organic fertilizer that applied in soils and not only has positive effects on crop yields, but also represents a significant reduction of CO2 emissions compared to the direct application of manure waste on soils.
