  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...
