Engineered biochars for sulfate removal from mine waters

Sebastian Behrens, Kurt Spokas, and Paul Eger are developing the performance of iron and manganese oxide- biochar composites as adsorbent materials in sulfate reducing flow columns (reactive biofilters) to clean mining impacted waters from sulfate and metals for the protection of Minnesota’s water resources.
