“International Symposium on Environment Application and Impacts of Biochar and Carbon Nanomaterial”

Sourse: Collage of Natural Resources and Environment  Date:2017-06-16

Biochar and carbon nanomaterial have been widely used in environmental remediation, molecular sieve development and production attributing to its properties of abundant functional groups, larger surface area, good pore structure and high environmental stability. However, the negative environment effect of nanomaterial application is still unclear. 
In order to improve the key technic of carbon material producing, and understand its mechanism in environmental remediation and adverse issues, as well as enhancing cooperation and communication among local and international scientists, an international symposium, entitled “Environment Application and Impacts of Biochar and Carbon Nanomaterial”, will be held at Northwest A&F University in 3rd-5th July, 2017, Yangling, Shaanxi, China. 
1. Topics
The topics will be mainly focused on biochar and carbon nanomaterial. All sub-topics are listed as following: 
1)    Preparation and technics of biochar and carbon nanomaterial;
2)    The removal efficiency and mechanism of organic and inorganic pollutants in the environment by carbon materials;
3)    Performance improvement and engineering-oriented of carbon materials;
4)    The transport of nanomaterial in environment and its risk assessment on environmental health.
