Abstract

The sustainability of bioenergy coppice plantations is strongly affected by the Nitrogen (N) balance, whose removal is very high due to the frequent harvest of large quantities of biomass composed of small-sized shoots. Poplar bioenergy coppice plantations could have a Nitrogen removal comparable...

Abstract

Bioenergy crops are considered to have the potential for climate mitigation and socio-economic benefits owing to their capacity to sequester C and partially replace the consumption of fossil fuels. In this study, the effects on soil respiration of a recent conversion of arable land to high (H) and...

Abstract

Short Rotation Forestry (SRF) plantations are estimated around 7 000 hectares in Italy, mostly established in northern regions. Recently thousands hectares of SRF were established in central and southern regions of Italy also (especially in Latium and Molise) due to the promising introduction of...

Abstract

Differences in bark and wood content in woody biomass directly affect its quality and economic value as an energy source. In order to estimate the quality of biomass before harvesting, an allometric regression of bark percentage of total aboveground biomass and DHB (diameter at 1.30 m height) was...

Abstract

Ten-day evapotranspiration (ETc) and crop coefficient (kc) of willow and poplar SRC used as vegetation filter and grown under fertilised (F) and unfertilised (NF) conditions, were determined for two successive growing seasons using volumetric lysimeters. During the first growing season, total ETc...

Abstract

Poplar clones selected for short term cropping were compared in northern Italy. Planted in spring 2003, the poplars were coppiced either annually or biennially, producing a high yield under appropriate conditions. Preliminary results at the end of 2 years were generally encouraging but results from ...

Abstract

Growth and woody biomass production of three Populus species (Populus nigra clone Jean Pourtet, P. alba clone 2AS-11 and P. × euramericana [P. canadensis] clone I-214), were followed during the first growing season after coppice of a short rotation coppice culture exposed to elevated atmospheric CO...

Abstract

High-density short-rotation poplar (Populus sp.) plantations are a large potential biomass energy resource in Italy. These energy crops also have great environmental benefits in comparison with fossil fuels, particularly when used for direct combustion. The author gives a short account of the...

Abstract

Photosynthetic capacity was assessed in coppices of three poplar clones (Populus alba genotype 2AS11, P. euramericana [P. canadensis] genotype I-214 and Pinus nigra genotype) growing in the POPFACE/EUROFACE free-air CO2 enrichment experiment in central Italy. Plants were grown either at an elevated ...

Abstract

The EU has been financing a project to develop technologies for the conversion of biomass into electrical energy. The Italian part of the project uses 8 tonnes of dry woody material per hour to produce 12 MW of electrical energy. ISMA is carrying out research to identify appropriate machinery for...
