Wang et al. (2023): Role of biochar toward carbon neutrality

Liuwei Wang, Jiayu Deng, Xiaodong Yang, Renjie Hou, Deyi Hou IN: Carbon Res. 2, 2.

In this review, the authors highlight the huge potential of biochar application in different fields to mitigate as high as 2.56 × 109 t CO2e total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions per year, accounting for 5.0% of the global GHG emissions. Soil applications of biochar as either a controlled-release fertilizer or an immobilization agent offer improved soil health while simultaneously suppressing the emissions of CH4 and N2O.
