|Abstract in Italian:|
Esiste un’ampia disponibilità di biomasse residuali che spesso non vengono adeguatamente
sfruttate Fra queste può rientrare la biomassa di Arundo donax derivante dalla periodica manutenzione
degli alvei fluviali.
|Abstract in English:|
The riparian vegetation is a valuable biomass that can
be advantageously exploited for energy use. This could
represent an added value improving the economic sustainability
of activities ecologically fundamental but unprofitable.
Moreover, the recent European policies on the progressive
replacement of fossil fuels with renewable sources needs
to produce non-food energy crops using marginal lands or
lands not devoted to agricultural production in order to avoid
the subtraction of soil to traditional crops and the increase in
the prices of food crops.
Objective of the present study was the comparison of two
machineries for the chopping of the spontaneous plants of
giant reed (Arundo donax L.) growing alongside the river
banks and the analysis of the product obtained in order to
evaluate its suitability for the use in biorefinery.
Although the current interest in biomass potential productivity
from riparian habitats is greater than in the past, very few
studies have analyzed the potential chain that could involve
the use of riparian biomass for energy purposes. This study
has allowed to acquire precious indications about the identification
of the mechanization lines suitable for the handling of
riparian vegetation of Arundo and to make a first evaluation
of the characteristics of the product aimed at its energy use.
