Biochar in Agriculture for Achieving Sustainable Development Goals introduces the state-of-the-art of biochar for agricultural applications to actualize sustainable development goals and highlight current challenges and the way forward. The book focuses on scientific knowledge and biochar technologies for agricultural soil improvement and plant growth. Sections provide state-of-the-art knowledge on biochar production and characterization, focus on biochar for agricultural application and soil improvement, discuss the roles of biochar for environmental improvement in farmland to relieve water and waste management as well as climate change, highlight biochar used for boosting bioeconomy and clean energy, and discuss future prospects.
This book will be important to agricultural engineers and researchers as well as those seeking to improve overall soil and environmental conditions through the use of biochar.

  • Focuses on biochar utilization in agricultural applications, targeting deeper elaboration of biochar as a cost-effective and renewable material in field-scale agriculture applications
  • Highlights biochar’s role in boosting the bioeconomy which shows great potential for promoting a circular economy and maximizing environmental, social and economic benefits
  • Connects biochar applications with sustainable development goals
