Improved anaerobic biodegradability of wheat straw, solid cattle manure and solid slaughterhouse by alkali, ultrasonic and alkali-ultrasonic pre-treatment
(Environmental Technology, 2018-09-07)
Wheat straw and animal wastes are important feedstock for biogas production in Europe. Yet, the high content of lignocellulosic and refractory materials causes the process to be relatively slow. Therefore, ...
A review of the use of convolutional neural networks in agriculture
(Journal of Agricultural Science, 2018-06-25)
Deep learning (DL) constitutes a modern technique for image processing, with large potential. Having been successfully applied in various areas, it has recently also entered the domain of agriculture. ...
Methane potential of fruit and vegetable waste: an evaluation of the semi-continuous anaerobic mono-digestion
(Environmental Technology, 2018-09-02)
The anaerobic digestion (AD) of a high diversity blend of fruit and vegetable waste (FVW) generated in tropical conditions as a single substrate was performed. A continuously stirred tank reactor (CSTR) ...
