Ethanol production from rice straw (Source: Khaleghian et al., 2015) Rice straw is pre-treated with alkali solution and enzymatic saccharification is carried out by the culture of fungus and yeast added in it which ultimately produces bioethanol (fig. 6). This bioethanol can be used as motor fuel or as an additive in gasoline.

Rice straw is a low-density crop residue. It is produced in huge quantities every year across the country. Therefore, the management of rice residue has become a problem for farmers. Farmers have to vacant the field as early as possible for sowing of the next crop. Hence, they go for the burning of crop residue and now it has become the common prac...

... to produce bioethanol. Bioethanol is produced by the conversion of paddy straw biomass into fermentable sugars such as glucose and xylose through enzymatic hydrolysis. Rice straw is pre-treated with alkali solution and enzymatic saccharification is carried out by the culture of fungus and yeast added in it which ultimately produces bioethanol ( fig. 6). This bioethanol can be used as motor fuel or as an additive in ...

NH 3 from farmland has serious impacts on human health and ecosystems. To reduce NH 3 volatilization and increase yield, biochar is applied. A field experiment was carried out to study NH 3 volatilization loss, and summer maize yield was analysed under different irrigation schemes with different amounts of biochar. Two irrigation schemes, I1 (67.5...

0.7BiFeO3–0.3BaTiO3 ceramics were synthesized through the solid-state reaction method under different calcination temperatures (Tcal) and calcination times (td) to investigate their effects on the microstructure and electrical properties of the ceramics. The grains and phase structure change upon increasing Tcal or td. However, too high values of T...

Agricultural nitrogen (N) application to soils is the main source of atmospheric ammonia (NH3) emissions. Ammonia negatively impacts the environment on a large scale. These emissions are affected by spatiotemporal heterogeneities of parameters within the soil on a microscale. Some key parameters controlling processes of the N cycle are soil oxygen...
