    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…

    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 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…

    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,…

    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…

    Biomass vs Fossil Fuels: Which is Better? Most people won’t argue with you when you say that fossil fuels are the least beneficial source of energy. But if you say that biomass, an alternative power source, is more beneficial than fossil fuels, some may disagree. How can a source of alternative energy not be better than fossil fuels? Let us try to understand the differences of these two and decide after if one is really better than the other. Origins Fossil fuels and biomass actually both…

    Is Biomass a better source of energy than Geothermal for meeting Canada’s energy needs in the 21st century? Biomass is biological material obtained from living or recently living (dead) plant or animal matter such as trees or waste that can be processed into fuel and heat. While geothermal energy is produced by obtaining the heat from the earth’s core but currently has no developed sites in Canada. We believe that biomass is a better energy source than geothermal power for meeting Canada’s…

    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…

    the report itself was in fact a practical joke (there are no real life mechanisms for a zombie apocalypse), it did call to attention serious observations concerning the detection of decompositional biological activity on habitable planets. The mountain of research concerning global biomass decay could have huge ramifications for the detection of life elsewhere in the Milky Way galaxy. The first major aspect of this approach concerns the underappreciated biodiversity of detrivorous bacteria.…

    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…
