Cadmium (Cd) is a toxic heavy metal present in the environment which causes severe environmental, nutritional, and ecological losses. A pot incubation study was conducted to assess the role of biochar derived from various organic feedstock's [poultry manure (PM), farmyard manure (FYM) and sugarcane press mud (PS)] and dosages (0, 2.5 and 5 g kg(-1) soil of each) to immobilize Cd (5 mg kg(-1)) in Cd polluted soil. Moreover, impact of applied biochar to reduce the bioavailability of Cd in wheat tissues and to...

The extensive use of nano-fabricated products in daily life is releasing a large volume of engineered nanoparticles (ENPs) in the environment having unknown consequences. Meanwhile, little efforts have been paid to immobilize and prevent the entry of these emerging contaminants in the food chain through plant uptake. Herein, we investigated the biochar role in cerium oxide nanoparticles (CeO(2)NPs) bioaccumulation and subsequent translocation in wheat (Triticum aestivurn L.) as well as impact on growth, pho...
Bioclimatic interventions for reducing cooling energy demand in hot and humid climates

While development of industry and science has been tremendous, population has also increased dramatically in the last centuries. As a consequence, unchecked consumption of energy mainly based on fossil fuels is the main culprit for triggering climate change worldwide. Meanwhile, an impressive amount of energy is being used for just cooling or heating the existing building stock. The need for energy can be reduced by adopting traditional bioclimatic measures that can be tested for their appropriateness throu...
