How To Gain Insight Into Biochar Sorbing Behavior Using Rare Earth Elements 

Biochar is a carbon-rich product that comes from biomass pyrolysis. Biochar has sparked a wide interest due to its great potential for (i) improving soil fertility, (ii) enhancing carbon sequestration, and (iii) favoring soil remediation. The application of biochar mainly implies surface functional groups, especially for the immobilization of toxic metals (not heavy metals; see box below). For example, as reviewed by Pourret and Houben (2018), biochar may bind aluminum (Al), predominantly due to complexation of Al with the hydroxyl...
