The sorption mechanisms (adsorption and desorption) of the persistent toxic substances (PTS) mixture, including arsenic (As), zinc (Zn), lead (Pb), mercury (Hg) (total and methylmercury (MeHg)), dichlorodiphenytrichloroethane (DDT), phthalates esters (PAEs), perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS) by different size of vegetable-based biochar will be investigated.
