This work is focus on describing the composition, lixiviability and effects on the plants of a novel NPK-C slow release organic fertilizer and soil improver based on biomass pyrolysis bio-oil fraction and char. A dual product-component, charcoal and oligomeric lignin, can be considered as a flexible matrix in the formulation of fertilizers, where a range of nutrients and additives could be included. Thus, a unique and valuable fertilizer for agricultural and horticultural applications can simply...
