This review discusses opportunities and challenges in creating bio/hydrochar sorbents and their nanocomposites to remediate aquatic and atmospheric environments. The sorbents' high surface areas (100-1500 m2/g), porosity (0.25-2.5 cm3/g), and rich surface chemistry render them ideal sorbents for pollutants such as heavy metals and organic and inorganic molecules.
