Italy, Canada: A Review of Non-Soil Biochar Applications


Biochar is the solid residue that is recovered after the thermal cracking of biomasses in an

oxygen-free atmosphere. Biochar has been used for many years as a soil amendment and in general

soil applications. Nonetheless, biochar is far more than a mere soil amendment. In this review, we

report all the non-soil applications of biochar including environmental remediation, energy storage,

composites, and catalyst production. We provide a general overview of the recent uses of biochar

in material science, thus presenting this cheap and waste-derived material as a high value-added

and carbonaceous source.
