Lignin-containing cellulose nanofibers (L-CNFs) with various lignin contents were produced by a grinding process from switchgrass, which were pretreated using organosolv fractionation. The effect of different fractionation conditions (temperature and time) and different number of grinder passes on the energy consumption and morphologies of L ...

manufacturers are provided to aid producers in deciding between twine and net wrap. Twine vs. Net Wrap Traditionally, twine was the most commonly used method for securing round bales. However, over the past 20 years, net wrap has emerged as a feasible alternative for producers of baled grasses. The baler purchase price is higher for net wrap.

Switchgrass is a dedicated, perennial energy grass native to North America. Upon harvesting, switchgrass is often chopped and densified into bales, compressed into chops or pellets to improve bulk density and to reduce cost of handling, transport, and storage [1–3].Switchgrass bales often require further processing (de-baling and grinding) at the …

Calorific Value The calorific or heating value is an important indicator of the quality of pressed fuel briquettes . It measures the energy content of the briquettes. It is defined as the amount of heat evolved when a pressed fuel briquette is completely burnt and the combustion products are cooled. The Gross Caloric Value, shortened […]

Lignin content of switchgrass (Panicum virgatum L.), a bioenergy species, is a critical determinant of biomass quality since it can negatively impact conversion of biomass into liquid fuels via biochemical platforms. Cinnamyl alcohol dehydrogenase (CAD) is a key enzyme in lignin biosynthesis. Here, we have shown that cv. Kanlow switchgrass contains at least two closely …
