The impact of amending forest soils with wood ash on soil organic matter attributes and associated properties
Wood ash, the byproduct of bioenergy production from biomass, is typically discarded into landfills as waste. Adding ash back to soil may supply nutrients to soil that are lost through biomass harvesting, increase soil ...
Wind load evaluation on photovoltaic modules with flow deflector
The wind load on a photovoltaic system and the effects of adding a flow deflector around the panel are studied. The deflector is a reinforce measurement aiming to reduce the aerodynamic wind loads over the PV system, ...
Industrial biochar characterization : properties and potential applications
Biochar is a carbon-rich charcoal produced from pyrolyzed biomass such as wood, agricultural waste, or animal products. Biochar is primarily used as a soil amendment, but it has promising applications in carbon sequestration, ...
Alternative uses for waste products from biomass burners
Woody biomass has become an important source of renewable energy throughout the world. A major issue that has risen from the increased use of combustion technology to produce thermal energy is the large amount of waste ...
