Faculty note: Prof. Holly receives USDA funding ($185K) for biochar research
Prof Holly (Environmental Engineering) received $185,000 from the USDA to complete laboratory and field assessments to reduce nutrient losses from edge of field agricultural runoff treatment systems. The project is a component of a larger effort by UW-Green Bay, UW-Madison, and UW-Platteville to build biochar research capacity for nutrient and emission management at agricultural livestock facilities. Funds were secured through an opportunity to build research capacity at non-land grant colleges of agriculture. Specific work completed by UW-Green Bay students includes design and evaluation of novel engineered biochar for removal of phosphorus from agricultural runoff.
