Agricultural Feedstocks

Department of Agriculture Fisheries and Food Project Database

In association with the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and food. UL researchers undertook a desk-based evaluation of biorefining technologies and feedstocks for Ireland with a focus on the products of the agricultural sector. This work also involved a signifcant amount of lab-work characterising these feedstocks. This subsection of the website presents observations and data pertaining to the following areas:

- Evaluation of biorefining technologies.

- Imporant biomasss compositional parameters for biorefining processes.

- Examination of potential feedstocks from the agricultural sector.

- Discussion of the issues of feedstock seasonality and storage.

- National scenarios for biorefining strategies based on the utilisation of agricultural materials.

Compositional Data of Miscanthus Samples Collected (Carbolea)

Databases can be downloaded containing compositional information for the Miscanthus plants and samples that were collected.

Compositional Data of Agricultural Feedstocks (Carbolea Data)

It was found that much of the secondary data were of little relevance to Irish conditions or did not cover the most important constituents of lignocellulosic biomass. Therefore an extensive programme of sample collection, preparation, and wet chemical analysis was undertaken. The results of that programme are presented here.
