Near East University Faculty of Engineering lecturers Assist. Prof. Dr. Aydin Hassani and Prof. Dr. Alireza Khataee wrote the fourth chapter of book titled Non-Soil Biochar Applications which is published in English in the field of Environmental Science, Engineering and Technology.

According to the information provided by the Near East University Press and Public Relations Directorate, in the book titled "Non-Soil Biochar Applications" and edited by Dimitrios Kalderis, Dimitrios Ntarlagiannis and Pantelis Soupios, Assist. Prof. Dr. Aydin Hassani and Prof. Dr. Alireza Khataee, reviewed the "Advanced Oxidation Process in Biochem Application" in the chapter.

Assist. Prof. Dr. Hassani and Prof. Dr. Khataee stated that according to a large part of the study reports in the literature the separation of wastes from the waste materials was defective and insufficient. In the study, it was noted that Advanced Oxidation Process (IOP) was one of the more efficient technologies among other waste treatment processes. The Advanced Oxidation Process involves critical, efficient and environmentally friendly catalytic processes to separate stubborn waste from industrial waste water. Improvement methods such as IOP works by producing extremely reactive radical species such as hydroxyl radicals (OH) which can clean and purify industrial wastewater.

In the study, it was stated that a few organic materials such as logs, agricultural residues, waste biomass and sewage sludge were suitable for the production of biological coal as raw material. In addition, the role of biochar and analogue biochar in the treatment of toxic metal and organic pollutants such as synthetic dyes, medicinal products, organic insecticides and herbal remedies was also summarized. Sample recommendations for future work on this issue were also presented.
