  • Point-Based Estimate

    The authors could have compared time exposed to biomass fuels between men and women, then included interaction terms in their statistical analysis: It appears that exposure duration or fuel composition may act as a modifier of biomass fuel use. The authors state that men are more likely to be exposed due to factors such as tobacco use,1 but that women are more likely to be exposed due to smoke whilst cooking.1 Assuming that the amount of exposure is therefore the same, the differences in Tb may be due to the length of exposure or the composition of the biomass fuel. For example, women who cook for one hour may have very different risks of Tb than a man that smoked for an equivalent amount of time. It would have been beneficial to have measured how long participants were exposed to biomass fuels, and to measure fuel…

  • Bioenergy In Canada Case Study

    Business needs to see the technology in use; non-governmental organizations can promote it, governments can sponsor demonstration projects. For example, government buildings could be heated with bioenergy. And successful bioenergy project partnerships with industry would encourage even greater use of the technology. Workable models of financing Government incentives for start-up costs, for example, can generate private-sector interest in setting up self-financing bioenergy project models. This…

  • Lignocellulosic Biomass: Analysis Of Pearl Millet Biomass

    Lignocellulosic biomass consists of cellulose, hemicellulose, lignin, proteins, acids, salts and minerals. Chemical composition is also one of the important factors for biofuel production. Moisture content of raw pearl millet biomass was (8 %) and ash content (6.27 %) was obviously higher than that the literature report of 3.8 % (Dhabhai et al., 2012). The proximate analysis of pearl millet biomass revealed that moisture (8±0.32%), ash (6.27±0.08%), total solids (92±0.14%), water extractives…

  • Pros And Cons Of Biomass

    Examples of Biomass Biomass is the organic matter contained in plants. It is produced by photosynthesis and is, therefore, a form of solar energy. Examples of/useful biomasses include wood, wood residues left over from the timber industry, crop residues, manure, urban wastes, industrial wastes, and municipal sewage. These biomasses can provide large amounts of energy. One of the most important contributions from biomass would be ethanol, a fuel that can be used in vehicles. In addition,…

  • Concepts Of Lignocellulosic-Based Biomass

    Lignocellulosic-based biomass Unlike starch, lignocellulosic biomass is a plant-based material composed of lignin, cellulose, and hemicellulose. This class of biomass includes wood and fibrous materials from organic sources, agricultural wastes, organic municipal wastes, and organic industrial wastes [18]. Agricultural wastes contribute as the major lignocellulosic resources investigated for biofuel production. Among them are oil palm biomass [19,20], corn stalk [21], rice straw [22], wheat…

  • The Importance Of Biomass Allocation Within Brassica Rapus

    availabilities upon biomass allocation within Brassica rapus. From the data collected, we can conclude that soil texture and it’s influence upon nutrient availability is significant in determining biomass allocation within B. rapus. In our study, we found that soil texture primarily determined root biomass while the degree of nutrient availability, provided by fertilization, primarily determined shoot biomass. This means that in sandier soils, root biomass allocation will increase as compared to…

  • Carbon Sequestration Essay

    However, an important variable of vegetation is its floristic diversity and dominance. Ecological value of the plant species (IVI) influences in a great extent the biomass of an ecosystem and hence carbon stocks. Importance Value Index (IVI) is a measure of how dominant a species is in a given forest area. It is a standard tool used by foresters to inventory a forest. Foresters generally do not inventory a forest by counting all the trees, but by locating points in the forest and sampling a…

  • The Bio Filtration Process

    considered the most important and efficient separation process that is used in the elimination of organic pollutants from water sources. The article focus on the biological processes that are used in bio-filtration and determination of their effectiveness (Acero, 2009). Full-scale laboratory applications of wastewater treatment and bio-filter are discussed and compared with their pollutant removal ability. Filtration is defined as necessary treatment process used for pollutant removal in water…

  • Putida Case Study

    It reached the maximum biomass of 2.32 g/L at 36 h and then the growth was retarded. Obtained final biomass was 1.32 fold higher than linoleic acid that produced maximum amount of PHA. Finally it yields 0.32 g/L of PHA with 14.8% PHA content from the resulting biomass which is lower than other carbon sources employed in shake flask cultivation. Polymer strongest band carbonyl ester also seen in 1742cm-1.It further confirmed mcl PHA also from the structurally unrelated carbon…
