This page describes the process for design and operation of decentralized small community and household water treatment systems utilizing biochar as a sustainably and locally generated adsorbent for removal of chemical contaminants.

While the page is being built, please see the Aqueous Solutions website, http://www.aqsolutions.org/, for downloadable open source materials (documents and videos) describing the generation of low-cost, enhanced water filter biochar, and the integration of biochar adsorption units in multi-barrier off-grid water treatment systems.
