The main goal of this study was to produce and extensively examine biochar as a potential material for the in-situ adsorption of typical pollutants carried by the stormwater runoff from the transportation infrastructures. Biochar, a product of controlled pyrolysis of carbon-rich waste material is the best known for its adsorption capacity as typically used for agricultural applications. The individual source of organic waste material, and parameters of pyrolysis, such as duration, temperature, limitation of oxygen, etc., would influence its final properties, which will dictate the overall efficiency of in situ adsorption.Several waste biomas were used as a starting material.
