Water Treatment with Biochar from Josh Kearns on Vimeo.

From their web site,active field and laboratory research projects include:

  • applicability of indigenous charcoals and biochar materials for water treatment targeting pesticides and other hazardous synthetic organic compounds.
  • indigenous charcoal / biochar applications in eco-sanitation and composting latrines
  • bio-filtration systems: design and monitoring of slow-sand/bio-sand and bio-carbon water filters
  • intermittent flow-through solar disinfection (SODIS) systems
  • development of field-based analytical methods and best practices for water quality monitoring and treatment system evaluation

Abstract
Rubberwood (Hevea Brasiliensis) is one of the main plantation crops in Thailand. These
rubber trees are cut down when it becomes unproductive of latex yielding of around 25 years and wood

On highly weathered soils in tropical and subtropical climates, maintenance of soil organic matter is essential to sustain system productivity and avoid rapid soil degradation. But climatic conditions as well as soil characteristics favor the rapid decomposition of organic matter. However, several recent studies indicated that black carbon, the product of incomplete combustion of organic material, could combine characteristics highly beneficial for soil nutrient dynamics with high stability against chemical and microbial breakdown. Lasting soil amelioration by incorporation of black carbon from wooden plants was proposed based on the beneficial evidence from
