One year of investigation has demonstrated that biochar could effectively immobilize lincomycin in the environment. Our research group’s findings highlight that manure-derived biochars may be used as a sink for veterinary antibiotics in soils
This August, I made an oral presentation at the 248th American Chemical Society (ACS) National Meeting and Exposition, held from August 10-14 in San Francisco, CA. The ACS meeting is an international scientific and interdisciplinary conference, which offers an excellent platform for scientists from different disciplines to present and discuss their discoveries. The theme this year, “Chemistry and Global Stewardship,” is focused on the relationship between chemical enterprise and the world’s resources. With 33 technical divisions that cover all scientific fields and interdisciplinary research, the meeting attracted scientists in both academia and industry to share their ideas; over 15,000 scientists and experts from dozens of disciplines attended.
