The Biofuels and Environmental Design: Research and Development sub-team is pursuing a new project on the impregnation of biochar with ammonium phosphate. At a lab scale, this team will seek to demonstrate the technical feasibility of forming ammonium phosphate in the pores of biochar using aqueous phase reagents. The team will be working in the Olin Hall Unit Operations Lab on campus to generate the ammonium phosphate impregnated biochar, with long-term goals of working with plant sciences labs to test the fertilizer efficacy and runoff.
