Technical Options of Pruned Biomass Harvesting in the Apple Orchards Applying Baling Technology and Its Conversion to Energy
AbstractThe reduction of fossil fuels usage and increase of local agricultural and forest residues for energy purposes belong to the main drivers to face with a climate change in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way. One of the alternative sources of wooden residues from agriculture is biomass generated during a regular fruit trees pruning. In Poland, there is a significant potential of pruned biomass from apple orchards that might be used to produce energy. In the paper the options of pruned biomass harvesting applying baling technology are presented. Next, the possibilities of the bales handling and their optional further treatment to produce energy are described. It was shown that depending on the local market requirements, the energetic use of pruning residues is feasible and may parallel lead to the CO2 emission reduction to the atmosphere.
