Cornell University scientists Rachel Hestrin and Johannes Lehmann, along with collaborators from Canada and Australia, have shown that charcoal can trap large quantities of nitrogen from the air pollutant ammonia (NH3). This will result in a potential slow-release fertilizer with more nitrogen than most animal manures or other natural soil amendments. The results were published in the journal Nature Communications. Ammonia is a common component of agricultural fertilizers and provides a bioavailable form of the essential nutrient nitrogen to plants. Read More
