  • Sub-critical water as a green solvent for production of valuable materials from agricultural waste biomass: A review of recent work

    Agricultural waste biomass generated from agricultural production and food processing industry are abundant, such as durian  peel, mango peel, corn straw, rice bran, corn shell, potato peel and many more. Due to low commercial value, these wastes are disposed in landfill, which if not managed properly may cause environmental problems. Currently, environmental laws and regulations pertaining ...

  • Legacy of road salt: Apparent positive larval effects counteracted by negative post‐metamorphic effects in wood frogs

    Road salt runoff has potentially large effects on wetland communities, but is typically investigated in short‐term laboratory trials. We investigated effects of road salt contamination on wood frogs (Rana sylvatica) by combining a field survey with two separate experiments. The field survey tested whether wood frog larval traits were associated with road salt contamination in natural wetlands. ...

  • Projects on Woody Biomass to Benefit Industry Within a Few Years

    Making the stuff of bio-based plastics, identifying new value chains in "forest" biorefinery, finding the perfect method for quick drying sludge or pinning down the best kind of pine for making bio-based products. These are the topics of four research projects whose instigators, all Bio4Energy researchers based in northern ...

  • Applying ERP to the biomass supply chain

    Green alternatives to hydrocarbon-based fuels are increasingly derived from recycled waste materials, including paper and packaging materials; residues from other industrial processes, and perhaps most importantly, biomass. Biomass comprises plant waste and plant by-products, and currently represents one of the most exciting avenues of research in the development of alternatives to fossil fuels. ...

  • Liquid fuels from woody biomass

    Although challenges like global climate change and oil depletion will increasingly drive fuel selection, increasing bioenergy use is only one of many possible responses to these problems. Present biomass liquid fuels are almost all derived from food crops, but their potential for further expansion is limited. Any major expansion of biomass liquid fuels will require use of the more abundant ...

  • Regeneration of teak forests under joint forest management in Gujarat

    In order to understand the impact of JFM in Gujarat, a study was conducted in three divisions viz., Baria, Rajpipala and Sabarkantha covering 24 villages. Vegetation parameters such as species richness, density of trees, basal areas, Shanon Weiner's diversity index, woody biomass and MAI were observed and compared with control plots in a non-JFM village. Stem density, species richness, species ...

  • Poplar in wetland agroforestry: a case study of ecological benefits, site productivity, and economics

    Poplars are the major tree component of traditional agroforestry systems throughout the south temperate central area of China that includes all or portions of Jiangsu, Anhui, Zhejiang, Hubei, Henan, Shandong, and Shanxi provinces, an area of ~600,000 km2. The lack of experidmental data on the effect of various interplanting systems on crop production represents a serious gap in our knowledge, and ...
