  • 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. ...

  • Impact of nitrogen loading rates on nitrogen transformation for anaerobic effluent from latex processing industry

    This study evaluated the influence of nitrogen loading rates on fate of nitrogen treating anaerobic effluent from latex processing industry using a novel acryl–fibre biomass carrier–bio–fringe (BF) in a swim–bed reactor. At NLR of 0.5 kg N/m³.day, 60% to 70% TKN was converted and the nitrogen ratio N–NO2 / (NO2 + ...

  • Future Perspectives in Bioreactor Development

    The paper discusses conversion capacities of both anaerobic and aerobic wastewater treatment systems in relation to growth kinetics, hydrodynamics and biomass concentration. In the current modern anaerobic high-rate reactors the conversion potentials are optimally exploited. This is not yet true for aerobic systems since operation of aerobic systems under conditions of low biomass growth reduces ...

  • Green Energy Fuel by Briquettes Machine

    Now a day’s demand of energy is increasing very rapidly but we have the limited sources to satisfy the energy requirements.  This energy demand is expected to grow almost by half over in the next two decades. So it is causing fear that our resources will run out by future. This will lead to shocking consequences of global economy.   On the other side, Due to the emission ...

  • Exponential fed-batch strategy for enhancing biosurfactant production by Bacillus subtilis

    Surfactin produced by Bacillus subtilis BDCC-TUSA-3 from Maldex-15 was used as a growth-associated product in a conventional batch process. Maldex-15 is a cheap industrial by-product recovered during manufacturing of high fructose syrup from corn starch. Surfactin production was greatly improved in exponential fed-batch fermentation. Maldex-15 and other nutrients were exponentially fed into ...

  • Wood pellet research program and summary results

    BBRG’s vision is to create a comprehensive design package for pelleting technology, said Shahab Sokhansanj. “It will contain engineering data and procedures for procuring biomass, [and for] producing and delivering pellets as a choice feedstock to the emerging bioindustry.” He said he would debate the statement made earlier that morning that biomass is not a mature technology: “We need to improve ...

  • Analytical approach for predicting biogas generation in a municipal solid waste anaerobic digester

    The increasing worldwide industrialization, urbanization and population explosion in major metropolitan cities have significantly affected the amount of wastes generated from municipal solid wastes (MSW). Beukering et al., (1999) accounted for industrialization as an important factor that increases waste generation. Anand (1999) focused on urbanization as an important variable in waste ...

  • Reducing the Economic Friction of Regulation

    Last month, we looked at two distinctly different bioenergy business models that are merging. Energy profit centers and waste cost-recovery facilities are learning the benefits of each other's business model. The resulting projects generate maximum revenue with lower production costs. The same kind of business model duality occurs in biomass energy regulation. There are more than two kinds of ...

  • The Role of Eucalyptus Globulus Forest and Products in Carbon Sequestration

    Abstract This study is a contribution to the ongoing debate about the selection of the approach for carbon accounting in wood products to be used, in the future, in the national greenhouse gas inventories under the UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change). Two accounting approaches are used in this analysis: the stock-change approach and the atmospheric-flow approach. ...
