  • Continuous moisture measurement of biomass for better energy content data

    Moisture content is one of the fundamental parameters when deciding on biomass fuel quality as this in turn dictates energy content and price. In short, water is expensive to transport and to remove. The traditional methods of determining moisture content and bulk density almost all involve random sampling from a consignment which is not without drawbacks. The Dutch company INADCO, exhibiting for ...

  • Marchwood Scientific new range of services for biodegradable waste

    Marchwood Scientific Services Ltd (MSSL) the independent Dioxin testing laboratory near Southampton has now extended its package of testing services for biodegradable wastes. The EU Landfill Directive and corresponding UK Landfill Regulations set targets designed to divert biodegradable municipal wastes (BMW) away from landfill. These targets state that by 2010, only 75% of the 1995 quantity of ...

  • New technology turns straw into a top performing heating product

    One of the unwritten rules about family farming is that nothing is wasted. Old equipment is seldom thrown away and anything that can be adapted for another purpose is accordingly reused. Perhaps that is why farmers world-wide have been leaders in recycling, reusing and re-purposing agricultural wastes. For Barbara Pokrzywa, making use of agricultural waste on her family farm has special ...

  • Tree biodiversity increases release of carbon from soils

    Soils play an important role in the carbon cycle, containing more than two thirds of the total carbon held in terrestrial ecosystems. Concern about climate change and rising CO2 levels is driving research to understand carbon cycling through soils. New research suggests that in tropical regions greater tree diversity increases soil respiration (the release of carbon) rates, but also improves ...

  • The California wildfire ‘season’ is rapidly approaching

    As the California drought continues to drag on, it has become increasingly apparent that the condition has worsened over the last several years. Not only is the general public dealing with one of the worst droughts, but the last several dry winters will only make matters worse as more ‘fuel’ for the fires becomes available. It has long been known that the wildfire season in the western U.S. is ...

  • A genome may reduce your carbon footprint

    With the costs of genome sequencing rapidly decreasing, and with the infrastructure now developed for almost anyone with access to a computer to cheaply store, access, and analyze sequence information, emphasis is increasingly being placed on ways to apply genome data to real world problems, including reducing dependency on fossil fuel. For the efficient production of bioenergy, this may be ...

  • Straw cover trims emissions of specific gases from Slurry

    Odor complaints related to animal production have increased during the past decade. Swine slurry stored in open storages is a source of airborne contaminants, including ammonia and odorous compounds. A customary practice for ammonia and odor control consists of covering the surface of the slurry with floating materials, such as straw. In general terms, straw covers reduce odorant emissions from ...
