• Stabilization of PFAS-contaminated soil with activated biochar 

      Sørmo, Erlend; Silvani, Ludovica; Bjerkli, Nora; Hagemann, Nikolas; Zimmermann, Andrew R.; Hale, Sarah; Hansen, Caroline Berge; Hartnik, Thomas; Cornelissen, Gerard (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Biochars are considered potential sustainable sorbents to reduce the leaching of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) fromcontaminated soils. However, biochar characteristicsmust probably be optimized to achieve ...
    • The effect of biochar, lime and ash on maize yield in a long-term field trial in a Ultisol in the humid tropics 

      Hale, Sarah; Nurida, Neneng L.; Jubaedah, *; Mulder, Jan; Sørmo, Erlend; Silvani, Ludovica; Abiven, Samuel; Joseph, Stephen; Taherymoosavi, Sarasadat; Cornelissen, Gerard (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      A multi-season field trial was carried out to investigate the effect of the amendment of biochar, lime, ash and washed biochar on the growth of maize. A degraded, strongly acidic Ultisol (pHKCl 3.60), with a relatively ...
    • The reuse of excavated soils from construction and demolition projects: Limitations and possibilities 

      Hale, Sarah; Roque, Antonio José; Okkenhaug, Gudny; Sørmo, Erlend; Lenoir, Thomas; Carlsson, Christel; Kupryianchyk, Darya; Flyhammar, Peter; Žlender, Bojan (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
    • Waste timber pyrolysis in a medium-scale unit: Emission budgets and biochar quality 

      Sørmo, Erlend; Silvani, Ludovica; Thune, Gorm; Gerber, Helmut; Schmidt, Hans-Peter; Cornelissen, Gerard (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Pyrolysis of organic waste or woody materials yields a stable carbonaceous product that can be mixed into soil and is often termed “biochar”. During pyrolysis carbon-containing gases are emitted, mainly volatile organic ...
