Variation in cell wall composition and bioenergy potential of rice straw
In most grain crops the leaf and straw is often under-utilized. This biomass is largely plant cell wall, whose heterogeneous composition and recalcitrance limits end uses such as forage or bioenergy. I review the desirable ...
A complete harvest : the future of rice as bioenergy
Communicating science to different groups of society is a critical need. Beyond basic research which seeks knowledge, applied research attempts to address real world issues; both aspects of scientific research can be ...
Biomass for thermochemical conversion : targets and challenges
Contributor:Tanger, Paul; Field, John L.; Jahn, Courtney E.; DeFoort, Morgan W.; Leach, Jan E.
Bioenergy will be one component of a suite of alternatives to fossil fuels. Effective conversion of biomass to energy will require the careful pairing of advanced conversion technologies with biomass feedstocks optimized ...
