Biochar Filtration of Phosphorous
Challenge:Environment
Category:Intermediate
Region:Simcoe County
City:Ravenna, ON
School:Pretty River Academy
Abstract:A process was developed to convert wood into fertilizer, by experimentally filtering and storing residual phosphorus from a contaminated water source. A key component of this process was the production substance from wood known as "biochar," through pyrolysis. It was experimentally determined that implementing a radial flow filter (containing biochar as media) would be a sustainable, cost-effective solution to preventing eutrophication.
