DEGRADATION OF WHEAT STRAW CELL WALL BY WHITE ROT FUNGI PHANEROCHAETE CHRYSOSPORIUM
The main aim of this dissertation research was to understand the natural microbial degradation process of lignocellulosic materials in order to develop a new, green and more effective pretreatment technology for bio-fuel ...
SIMULATION OF FLOW, MASS TRANSFER AND BIO-CHEMICAL REACTIONS IN ANAEROBIC DIGESTION
The aims of the dissertation were to understand and simulate flow, mass transfer and bio-chemical reactions in anaerobic digesters. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and anaerobic digestion model No. 1 (ADM1) were used ...
MODELING HYDROLOGICAL PROCESSESS IN THREE MOUNTAINOUS WATERSHEDS IN THE U.S. PACIFIC NORTHWEST
Assessment of water yield from mountainous watersheds is critical for managing aquatic life while meeting downstream water supply demands. Baseflow plays a key role in regulating the streamflow during low-flow periods. ...
MECHANISM, KINETICS AND MICROBIOLOGY OF SELECTION PRESSURE DRIVEN BIOMASS RETENTION IN SOLIDS CONTAINING AGRICULTURAL WASTE TREATMENT
The aims of this dissertation were to explore the mechanism of biomass retention in solids containing waste under selection pressure, and to develop a high-rate anaerobic digester treating agricultural waste containing ...
Measurements of Gaseous Emissions from Naturally Ventilated Livestock Barns
Agriculture contributes over 80% of national NH3 emission and ~55% is attributed to animal livestock operations. Livestock barns are one of the major emission sources due to their large footprint. Therefore, a pressing ...
UNCERTAINTIES ASSOCIATED WITH THE USE OF AIR TEMPERATURE AS INPUT IN DECISION SUPPORT SYSTEMS FOR VINEYARD MANAGEMENT
Under the assumption that tissue temperature and canopy air temperature are similar, air temperature is a primary input in agricultural models. However, most often, the data used as input in the models are measured at ...
