Abstract

Eight poplar clones (83.148.041; 85.036; 85.037; 84.078; I 214; AF2; AF6 and Pegaso) are under comparison in Short-Rotation-Forestry (SRF) plots established in the early spring 2004 in silty-clay soils of the Po Valley near Ferrara (Emilia-Romagna region). Clones 83.148.041; 85.036; 85.037 and...

Abstract

The environmental impact of electric power production through an Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) fired by dedicated energy crops (poplar [Populus sp.] Short Rotation Forestry (SRF)) is analysed by a Life Cycle Assessment approach. The results are compared with the alternative option...

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

In Italy, marginal agricultural areas in hilly or montane zones have seen a large decline in agricultural activity over the last 50 yr, and much abandoned land is reverting to scrub woodland and forest. A discussion is presented of the potential of poplar [Populus sp.] short rotation silviculture...

Abstract

A brief examination of the way in which the EU (European Union) law number 2080/92 - which makes available grants for afforestation of agricultural land, and in addition, annual subsidies for 5 yr - will be administered, in the context of poplar [Populus spp.] short rotation plantations in N. Italy ...

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...
