Forschungsaufgaben

  • In order to mitigate global warming risks, many countries aim at reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Bioenergy crops are being used as a substitute for fossil fuels and short rotation forestry (SRF) is a prime example. In order to examine the sustainability of energy crops for fuel, typical European short rotation forestry (SRF) biomass, willow and poplar, are examined and compared to rapeseed in respect to various aspects of soil respiration and combustion heat obtained from the extracted products per hectare. Furthermore, the impacts of land-use change and occupation on the ecosystem quality were assessed.
