Welcome to SBRG at the Soil Sciences Department



Saudi Biochar Research Group (SBRG) was initiated after the revolution of Biochar to lead the research of Biochar by exploring its potential implications specifically in dry and semi-dry lands, and alkaline soils. SBRG research team includes national and international professional researchers, professors, and students. SBRG is working on multi-disciplinary aspects of pyrolysis, biochar production, materials engineering/designing, environmental (soil and water) pollution remediation, and climate change mitigation.



 

The prevalence of organic micropollutants (OMPs) in various environmental compartments is posing a serious health risks to all kinds of lives on the planet. The levels of OMPs such as...
Date palm waste–derived biochar (DBC) was produced through pyrolysis (600 °C) and modified with zeolite (Z-DBC), silica (S-DBC), or nano-zerovalent iron (nZVI-DBC) to design efficient...
Phosphate rock (PR) was activated via acidulation with HCl, EDTA, and oxalic acid to enhance its reactivity. The release, lateral transport, and uptake of phosphorus (P) along with trace...
