(2011-01-21)Concerns about national energy security and climate change have recently increased interest in renewable bioenergy. Specifically, the market for perennial grasses and agricultural residue for combustion for heat and ...
Comparative analysis of stem carbon partitioning and development in Andropogoneae bioenergy grasses (2015-01-21)Plants fix carbon during photosynthetic reactions but how this carbon is distributed and stored throughout the plant greatly depends on the species. While cellulose and lignin are the more stable forms, the plant only needs ...
(2013-05-24)Miscanthus is emerging as a promising feedstock for domestic biofuel production. However, inefficiencies of machinery that are used for harvesting bioenergy crops such as miscanthus currently prohibit commercial production. ...
(2010-05-19)The demand for alternative fuel sources for oil has been increasing in recent years. From 2000 to 2010, worldwide ethanol fuel production has increased from 4.49 billion gallons to 19.5 billion gallons. A large source of ...
(2013-08-22)Due to the increase in the demands for bioenergy, considerable areas in the Midwestern United States (US) could be converted into croplands for second generation bioenergy, such as the cultivation of miscanthus and ...
Study of agronomic factors important to the establishment of various perennial grass bioenergy feedstock species (2014-05-30)Perennial grasses are expected to comprise a substantial portion of the lignocellulosic biomass to meet renewable energy mandates in the U.S. in the next decade. Miscanthus x giganteus, a high-yielding warm-season, ...
