  1. 1. The Technology and Economy of Farm-Scale, High-Solids Anaerobic Digestion of Plant Biomass

    Author : Mattias Svensson; Bioteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; farm-scale; Bioteknik; farmhouse construction; Lantbruksteknik; Biotechnology; agricultural machines; kontroll av utsläpp; Agricultural engineering; Miljöteknik; pollution control; Environmental technology; Lantbruksekonomi; straw bed priming; stratified bed digesters; nitrogen recycling; greenhouse gases; Sweden; Agricultural economics; sequential single-stage fed-batch; ley crops; sustainability; wheat straw; sugar beet tops; crop residues; high-solids; economy; Anaerobic digestion; biogas upgrading;

    Abstract : Anaerobic digestion is a microbially mediated process occurring in nature in the absence of oxygen and other non-carbonaceous electron acceptors. The majority of the carbon of the organic matter degraded in the process is transformed into carbon dioxide and methane. READ MORE

  2. 2. Swedish farm-scale biogas production-substrates and operating parameters

    Author : Karin Ahlberg Eliasson; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Biogas production from agricultural waste streams provides three value streams: production of fossil-free energy, reduced greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and production of nutrient-rich digestate that can be used as fertiliser. However, farm-based biogas production is expanding rather slowly. READ MORE

  3. 3. Anaerobic digestion of crop residues at low temperatures

    Author : Irene Bohn; Bioteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Bioteknik; Biotechnology; kontroll av utsläpp; Miljöteknik; Environmental technology; pollution control; methanogens; low temperature; crop residues; Anaerobic digestion; farm-scale digestion; fluorescence in situ hybridization;

    Abstract : Biogas is a renewable source of energy. Residues from agriculture contain considerable energy potential and are suitable substrates for biogas production, but in Sweden the utilization of these residues is low. The economic feasibility of biogas production in general is low, and only limited subsidies are provided by the state. READ MORE

  4. 4. Anaerobic Digestion of Solid Residues on the Bolivian Altiplano

    Author : Rene Alvarez; Institutionen för kemiteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Bioteknik; Biotechnology; Altiplano; renewable energy; temperature fluctuation; low temperature; farm-scale digestion; manure; solid residues; Anaerobic Digestion; biogas;

    Abstract : Anaerobic digestion and the production of biogas can provide an efficient means of meeting energy needs locally and reducing organic loading due to untreated waste material in water recipients. Furthermore, residues after anaerobic digestion may be used as a fertilizer to improve the soil in many parts of the world. READ MORE

  5. 5. Improved farm soil mapping using near infrared reflection spectroscopy

    Author : Johanna Wetterlind; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Information on soil texture, soil organic matter content (SOM), nutrient status and pH is fundamental for efficient crop production and for minimising negative effects on the environment. Farmers obtain this information, on which decisions on fertiliser and lime requirements are based, through farm soil mapping. READ MORE
