  • Soil Moisture Applications and Practices Using the HydraProbe Soil Moisture Sensor

    Over the past ten years, environmental monitoring has become increasingly important. Environmental factors such as climate change, dwindling water resources, and threatened habitats are driving the need to monitor the environment and implement better policies to protect it. Many natural processes in the environment are driven by or in some ways related soil hydrological processes. Monitoring soil ...

  • Asymmetric responses of paspalum species to a soil moisture gradient

    Anecdotal evidence suggests that dallisgrass (Paspalum dilatatum Poir.) and bahiagrass (Paspalum notatum Flueggé), two of the most troublesome weed species in managed turfgrass, are both drought and flood tolerant. Water table depth gradient tanks were employed to identify habitat specialization and competitive differences between dallisgrass and bahiagrass. Shoot and rhizome final biomass and ...

  • Modeling the effect of extrusion parameters on density of biomass pellet using artificial neural network

    Abstract Background The relationships between the density of the biomass pellet and the related variables are very complicated and highly nonlinear, which make developing a single, general, and accurate mathematical model almost impossible. One of the most appropriate methods to solve these problems is the intelligent method. Shankar and Bandyopadhyay and Shankar et al. successfully used genetic ...

  • Effect of various leachate recirculation strategies on batch anaerobic digestion of solid substrates

    Various leachate recirculation strategies were applied to a batch-wise operated solid-phase digestion system in laboratory-scale tests. Comparative experiments with both continuous and intermittent leachate recirculation revealed no advantages of a continuous flow. Results suggest that leachate recirculation should not be carried out continuously during process initialisation when methanogenesis ...

  • Uniforet Mill, Quebec, Canada

    Biomass Drying For Bioenergy A DRY-REX low temperature biomass drying system was installed at a Uniforet pulp and paper mill in Quebec to dry sludge produced during the paper making process into a high efficiency biofuel. Prior to the DRY-REX project, the mill was spending millions of dollars to treat and landfill the sludge as waste. The DRY-REX system processed 200 wet tons of sludge a day ...

  • Bacteria survival experiment for assessment of wastewater reuse in agriculture

    Growth and survival of a strain of E. coli were investigated in laboratory-scale soil columns under essentially static conditions in three Egyptian agricultural soils. One pore volume of a buffer solution of known cell concentration was applied to a set of identical columns at time zero, and individual columns were analyzed for viable E. coli colony forming units at times ranging ...

  • Persistence and impact on microorganisms of Bacillus thuringiensis proteins in some Zimbabwean soils

    The persistence of the Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. kurstaki (Btk) toxin (Cry1Ab protein) from Bt maize (MON810, Yieldgard®) residues incorporated in a vertisol (739 g clay kg–1) was investigated. The maize residues were incubated in the soil for 4 weeks, and activity of the toxin in the residues was bioassayed using larvae of the diamondback moth, Plutella xylostella (Lepidoptera: ...

  • Stocks, Chemistry, and Sensitivity to Climate Change of Dead Organic Matter Along the Canadian Boreal Forest

    Abstract Improving our ability to predict the impact of climate change on the carbon (C) balance of boreal forests requires increased understanding of site-specific factors controlling detrital and soil C accumulation. Jack pine (Pinus banksiana) and black spruce (Picea mariana) stands along the Boreal Forest Transect Case Study (BFTCS) in northern Canada have similar C stocks in aboveground ...

  • Bioventing

    Introduction Bioventing is a promising new technology that stimulates the natural in situ biodegradation of any aerobically degradable compounds in soil by providing oxygen to existing soil microorganisms. In contrast to soil vapor vacuum extraction, bioventing uses low air flow rates to provide only enough oxygen to sustain microbial activity. Oxygen is most commonly supplied through direct air ...

  • Thermal recycling of spent grains – residue becomes resources

    Introduction – the History of Beer The origin of beer was a happy coincidence: In the fourth millennium BC, the Sumarians discovered the fermentation process. The country of the Sumarians, called Mesopotamia, was located between the Euphrates and the Tigris. The Sumarians wanted to help an ill person swallow some bread, so and they soaked a piece in water. They simply forgot the bread in ...

  • Messing with the monsoon: Study: Manmade aerosols can alter rainfall in the world’s most populous region

    Original story at MIT  On the Indian subcontinent, the widespread burning of firewood, coal, agricultural waste, and biomass for energy disperses black carbon particulates into the atmosphere. These manmade aerosols not only pollute the air, but also form an “atmospheric brown cloud” that’s disrupting the local ...

  • Treating wastewater as a resource

    A number of UK landfill operators are turning wastewater into a resource by utilising OTT monitoring and control systems to manage the irrigation of Willow crops (for renewable energy generation) with pre-treated effluent. Background Leachate from landfill sites represents a significant potential environmental liability, extending long into the future after a landfill site has ...
