Alternative sources of vegetative mass for biofuels in Polissia zone
Keywords: long-term crop, vegetative sources, renewable energy, biogas, performance
AbstractAim. To determine the optimal vegetative biological resources in the area of Polissia for the introduction of the domestic green fuel and energy complex. Methods. Field, laboratory, mathematical. The estimation of the biomaterial was carried out, taking into account its biochemical properties and technological growth. Results. Based on the results of the research, the estimation of the biomaterial was carried out, taking into account its biochemical properties and technological growth. It was established that perennial crops can annually provide renewable biomass inputs at the level of 4.6–11.7 t/ha from cereal grasses and 5.5–25.8 t/ha from non-traditional crops, respectively yielding biomethane 722–1857 m 3 /ha and 1161–4715 m 3 /ha per year. The content of useful substances of the processed substrate was determined as follows: N – 0.49–2.58%, P 2 О 5 – 0.14–1.98%, K 2 О – 0.38–2.64 %. Conclusions. The vegetative mass of the seeds of perennial grasses along with other renewable sources can be used as vegetative fi llers of methane tanks in the Polissya zone.
