Abstract This work presents the influence of alkali pretreatment on the enzymatic hydrolysis and efficiency of anaerobic digestion of lignocellulosic biomass pretreated both in a one- (chemical or enzymatic) and two-step (chemical and enzymatic) process. In this study two species of energy crops were used Miscanthus giganteus and Sida hermaphrodita . The aim of this work was to compare biogas production and methane yield during fermentation of pretreated and untreated energy crops. The results s...

Abstract The goal of the presented work was the evaluation and comparison of two biochars (produced from Sida hermaphrodita – BCSH/laboratory produced and from wheatstraw – BCS/commercial available) to adsorb heavy metal ions (Cd(II), Cu(II) and Zn(II)) from water. Kinetics of the sorption as well as sorption isotherms, the influence of solution pH and interfering ions were investigated. Different physico-chemical properties of biochars had the great influence on adsorption capacity. The greater...

Abstract Sida hermephrodita or Virginia mallow is a perspective perennial herb in the Malvaceae family able to yield a biomass crop through the last two decades. Additionally, the plants have a lot of uses and benefits for instance it can be used as a fodder crop, honey crop, ornamental plant in public gardens. It has favourable features for example fast growing and resistance against the disease and climatic fluctuations, etc. Since Sida is in the beginning phase of domestication, it has a seri...

Abstract The global demand for energy security and the mitigation of climate change are the main drivers pushing the production of crops for energy purposes (energy crops). However, the cultivation of these plants can cause land use conflicts since agricultural soil is mostly used for food crop production. A sustainable alternative to the conventional cultivation of food-based energy-crops is the cultivation of non-food energy crops on marginal lands. To further increase the sustainability of en...

Abstract In the paper energy crops of considerable cultivation potential in Poland, namely: Salix viminalis, Helianthus tuberosus, Sida hermaphrodita, Spartina pectinata, Andropogon gerardi and Miscanthus X giganteus were tested in terms of steam gasification reactivity of biomass chars, as well as yields and composition of product gas in steam gasification and lime-enhanced steam gasification in a laboratory scale fixed bed reactor at 650 °, 700 ° and 800 °C. The highest value of reactivity for...

The aim of the research was assessment of N, P, K, Ca, Mg content in particular parts of Virginia mallow (Sida hermaphrodita Rusby), that is leaves, stems and roots, under diversified NPK mineral fertilization. The investigation was conducted on experimental plots sown with Virginia mallow, divided by means of narrow technological paths into two parts characterizing with various spacing of plant rows: plot 1 where spacing between rows of plants was 0.75 m and plot 2 where spacing between the row...

This paper presents the quality and cost of small-scale production of briquettes, made from agricultural and forest biomass in north-eastern Poland. The experiment involved production of eight types of briquettes. The highest net calorific value was determined for briquettes made from pine sawdust (18,144 MJ t−1). The value measured for briquettes made from perennial energy plants was over 1500 MJ t−1 lower, and for those made from straw 2000 MJ t−1 lower than for sawdust briquettes. The sawdust...

Green technologies presented in Polish power generation are based on biomass. Poland has considerable potential for biomass produced using forest, agricultural, and municipal waste. Currently, biomass is used in several hundred power stations, co-incineration of biomass with coal powers 39 CHP and power plants. The largest establishments producing bioethanol are located in Starogard Gdanski, Oborniki, and Wroclaw. The largest producer of biodiesel is the Trzebinia Refinery S.A., located in the v...

The biodiversity crisis is one of the greatest challenges facing humanity, but our understanding of the drivers remains limited. Thus, after decades of studies and regulation efforts, it remains unknown whether to what degree and at what concentrations modern agricultural pesticides cause regional-scale species losses. We analyzed the effects of pesticides on the regional taxa richness of stream invertebrates in Europe (Germany and France) and Australia (southern Victoria). Pesticides caused sta...

Abstract Due to high biomass accumulation ability and multiple ecological benefits, the versatile, perennial bioenergy crop Sida hermaphrodita has sparked the interest of researchers in Central Europe. We assessed the crop's agronomy and bioenergy potential when grown under Austrian climate and soil conditions. A field trial was established in Austria, where the factors planting density and utilization strategy (thermal or biogas) were monitored for three growing seasons. Harvesting lignified bi...

Abstract Biofuel from energy crops will play an important role in supplying carbon-neutral fuel for the transport sector. However, there are large uncertainties regarding energy crop development and the energy crop potential and distribution need to be evaluated more comprehensively and systematically. In this study, we propose an integrated approach using the AquaCrop model, a geographic information system approach, and a scenario analysis and we conduct a land availability assessment with mult...
