Brief content Biochar can be produced usig variety of waste biomass to reduce environmental pressure of biodegradable waste management. It has been used as adsorbent. The aim of presented study was to use biochar produced from waste biomas for removal of veterinary antibiotic tiamulin from model wastewater. Results indicated importance of biochar activation to achieve applicable adsorption characteristics, namely pore size and appropriate surface. It was concluded, that adsorption characteristics of produced and activated biochar are comparable to those of commercially available activated carbon and thus its feasibility for removal of tiamulin from model wastewater was confirmed.
