Abstract A successful biorefinery needs to align suitable pretreatment with sustainable production of biomasses. Herein, four perennial plants, (Sida, Silphium, Miscanthus and Szarvasi) regarded as promising feedstocks for biorefineries were subjected to the OrganoCat pretreatment. The technology was successfully applied to the different perennial plants revealing that pretreatment of grasses was more efficient than of non-grasses. Thorough analyses of the lignocellulose – before and after fract...

Global declines in insects have sparked wide interest among scientists, politicians, and the general public. Loss of insect diversity and abundance is expected to provoke cascading effects on food webs and to jeopardize ecosystem services. Our understanding of the extent and underlying causes of this decline is based on the abundance of single species or taxonomic groups only, rather than changes in insect biomass which is more relevant for ecological functioning. Here, we used a standardized pr...

This study presents the results of anaerobic co-digestion of perennial crop Sida hermaphrodita and microalgae biomass under semi-continuous conditions. The aim of this study was to compare biogas potential from the silage of Sida mixed in different ratios with microalgal species of Chlorella sp. and Scenedesmus sp. The results showed that the co-digestion process improved biogas/methane production to the level of 594.52/351.88 mL/g volatile solids. The best results were achieved when microalgae ...

Abstract The importance of energy crops as replacement for fossil fuels is constantly increasing. Miscanthus x giganteus is a perennial grass which in the past ten years emerged as one of the most interesting bioenergy crops. Additionally to a number of benefits, the characteristic of Miscanthus x giganteus is that it can be harvested during the whole period of dormant vegetation. Although the lignocellulosic biomass of Miscanthus x giganteus can be used for production of second-generation bioet...

The demand for bioenergy has increased the interest in short-rotation woody crops (SRWCs) in temperate zones. With increased litter input and ceased annual soil cultivation, SRWC plantations may become soil carbon sinks for climate change mitigation. A chronosequence of 26 paired plots was used to study the potential for increasing soil organic carbon (SOC) under SRWC willow and poplar after conversion from cropland (CR) on well-drained soils. We estimated SOC stocks in SRWC stands and adjacent ...

For avoiding competition with food production, marginal land is economically and environmentally highly attractive for biomass production with short-rotation coppices (SRCs) of fast-growing tree species such as poplars. Herein, we evaluated the environmental impacts of technological, agronomic, and environmental aspects of bioenergy production from hybrid poplar SRC cultivation on marginal land in southern Germany. For this purpose, different management regimes were considered within a 21-year l...

In perennial energy crop breeding programmes, it can take several years before a mature yield is reached when potential new varieties can be scored. Modern plant breeding technologies have focussed on molecular markers, but for many crop species, this technology is unavailable. Therefore, prematurity predictors of harvestable yield would accelerate the release of new varieties. Metabolic biomarkers are routinely used in medicine, but they have been largely overlooked as predictive tools in plant...

In the paper the data set from the experimental study on the influence of a fuel blend composition on the efficiency of steam co-gasification process was explored with the application of the principal component analysis and the hierarchical clustering analysis. Based on the analysis the synergy effects observed in the steam co-gasification process at the temperature of 700 and 900 °C were interpreted. In the co-gasification tests the significant differences between studied biomass types (Miscant...

Abstract The perennial plant Sida hermaphrodita (Sida) is attracting attention as potential energy crop. Here, the first detailed view on non-cellulosic Sida cell wall polysaccharide composition, structure and architecture is given. Cell walls were prepared from Sida stems and sequentially extracted with aqueous buffers and alkali. The structures of the quantitatively predominant polysaccharides present in each fraction were determined by biochemical characterization, glycome profiling and mass ...

As known, dried sewage sludge, is a by-product produced from waste water treatment, contains significant amounts of organic content, and makes up to 60% with overall calorific value from 9 to 12 MJ/kg. Hence, it can be considered as material for thermal processing focusing on heat and power production. Among thermal conversion technologies, gasification is seen as the effective one because it can be easily combined with heat and power cogeneration units. On the other hand, due to high mineral co...

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...

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...
