Tailings water from a copper mine in southern Peru was being discharged to the sea, carrying a significant amount of solids. To investigate the potential for environmental impact mitigation, it was hypothesized that crops could be grown using the water, with the only restriction being that they...
The state of the art of hydrolysis-fermentation technologies to produce ethanol from lignocellulosic biomass, as well as developing technologies, is evaluated. Promising conversion concepts for the short-, middle- and long-term are defined. Their technical performance was analysed, and results...
Amination treatment of straw proceeds slowly at the low environmental temperatures. Although the aqueous ammonia has a relatively good effect, it has high volatility and an irritant odor. Steam explosion has the advantage of short reaction time, but it cannot improve the nitrogen content of the...
Switchgrass ( Panicum virgatum L.) is considered to be a valuable bioenergy crop with significant potential to sequester soil organic carbon (SOC). A study was conducted to evaluate soil carbon stocks within established switchgrass stands and nearby cultivated cropland on farms throughout the...
In order to show the influence of co-firing biomass with bituminous coal on ash properties, calculations of fusibility correlations have been carried out. Two Upper Silesian coals (with lower—LS and higher—HS slagging inclination) were chosen for emphasizing the influence of basic fuel. Four...
How to harvest and process corn stover to maximize its quality as a fuel or industrial feedstock and minimize material losses are compelling issues in the industrial utilization of corn stover. The objectives of this investigation were to evaluate the variation in the chemical composition and...
Intensive management for biomass production results in high rates of nutrient removal by harvesting. We tested whether wood ash generated when burning wood for energy could be used to ameliorate negative soil effects of short-rotation harvesting practices. We measured the temporal and spatial...
