Integrating biochar into traditional construction materials presents a promising avenue to reduce carbon emissions from the construction industry. While recent research has focused on the performance of biochar-cement materials, limited attention is given to the durability of biochar in cementitious materials. This study investigated the alterations in the structural, chemical, and mechanical properties of biochar in the cementitious system and marine environment.
