Title: Soil Quality and Biofuel Production Ethanol made from biomass rather than grains holds great promise, including numerous economic and environmental benefits. However, the adverse interactions of energy, climate, food, and soil quality cannot be ignored. In eight concise chapters, Soil Quality and Biofuel Production presents a state-of-the-knowledge review of soil properties and processes negatively impacted by crop residue removal.
It outlines the ecological consequences of biofuels and evaluates land use in the production of raw material for biofuel. The book then spotlights pressing issues related to corn and cellulosic ethanol and also soil erosion. It offers advice for achieving economic balance in the competition for arable land between food and biofuel along with residue harvest management techniques. The logistics of producing biomass in a sustainable manner remain a major challenge and will continue to be so for the foreseeable future. Soil Quality and Biofuel Production provides environmental scientists and agricultural engineers with the knowledge they need to address them.
