  1. 1. Characterization, toxicity and treatment of wood leachate generated outdoors by the wood-based industry

    University dissertation from Växjö : Linnaeus University Press

    Author : Henric Svensson; Linnéuniversitetet.; [2014]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Wood leachate; Log yard runoff; Stormwater; Toxicity; Artemia salina; Vibrio fischeri; Constructed wetlands; Forestry and Wood Technology; Skog och träteknik;

    Abstract : Wood is a natural raw material, and would hardly be considered a risk to the environment. However, the handling of wood materials on an industrial scale has been shown to have a negative impact on water bodies that run-off from industrial sites that process wood-based materials.

    Abstract : The direct variable costs for heat and electricity production based on solid biomass fuel combustion is approximately 3-5 times lower than the costs in a fossil fuel-oil based boiler in Sweden. In addition waste derived biomass fuels are typically much cheaper than biomass not classified as waste. READ MORE

  3. 3. Ectomycorrhizal community structure and function in relation to forest residue harvesting and wood ash applications

    University dissertation from Microbial Ecology, Lund University

    Author : Shahid Mahmood; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2000]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; 14C allocation; P uptake; Calcium oxalate; Solubilisation; Tricalcium phosphate; Wood ash; Forest residue; N deposition; rDNA; ITS region; PCR-RFLP; Spruce; Ectomycorrhiza; Community structure; Wood ash colonisation; Spruce colonisation; Competition; Ecology; Ekologi;

    Abstract : Ectomycorrhizal fungi form symbiotic associations with tree roots and assist in nutrient-uptake and -cycling in forest ecosystems, thereby constituting a most significant part of the microbial community. The aims of the studies described in this thesis were to evaluate the potential of DNA-based molecular methods in below-ground ectomycorrhizal community studies and to investigate changes in ectomycorrhizal communities on spruce roots in sites with different N deposition, and in sites subjected to harvesting of forest residues or application of wood ash.

  4. 4. Ash Products for Nutrient Recycling in Forestry : Leaching and Drying Characteristics

    University dissertation from Microbial Ecology, Lund University

    Author : Peter Mellbo; Högskolan i Kalmar.; [2007]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Ash products; Wood ash; Leaching; Drying; Nutrient; ; Sustainable forestry; FORESTRY; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES and LANDSCAPE PLANNING Plant production Forestry; SKOGS- och JORDBRUKSVETENSKAP samt LANDSKAPSPLANERING Växtproduktion Skogsskötsel; Miljövetenskap; Environmental Science;

    Abstract : As the demand for carbon dioxide neutral energy sources increases, forestry becomes more intensive. Entire trees are removed from the felling sites threatening the nutrient balance of the forest soils. READ MORE

  5. 5. Greenhouse gas fluxes between drained forested peatlands and the atmosphere - influence of nutrient status and wood ash fertilization

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Maria Ernfors; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; greenhouse gases; peatlands wood; ash; nutrient status;

    Abstract : The management of peatlands for wood production involves drainage and, sometimes, fertilization with, for example, wood ash. The effects of these measures on greenhouse gas fluxes, in relation to the ... READ MORE
