Authors’ contributions

JWL conducted the overall biochar research project, analyzed data, and drafted the manuscript. BH and DD conducted the biochar production processes and co-wrote the description of biochar product samples and their associated production processes. SP performed the scanning electron microscopic (SEM) imaging of biochar samples. BRE carried out CEC assays, biochar wet sieving, and statistical analysis and co-wrote the manuscript. MKK and ACB conducted the biochar elemental analysis, BET and FTIR measurements and co-wrote the manuscript. All authors read and approved the final manuscript.


The authors wish to thank Charles T. Garten, Deanne J. Brice, and Tanya Bunch for their assistance in helping the measurement of cation exchange capacity; and Mac Post and Joe Katz for stimulating discussions.
