Sustainable use of aquatic macrophytes for the production of bioenergy
Edited by: Dr. Lucie Moeller & Prof. Andreas Zehnsdorf
Aquatic macrophytes are important components of water bodies. The aquatic biomass can, however, cause problems for the maintenance and leisure use of water bodies in the case of overgrowth. For this reason, the aquatic biomass has to be regularly removed and disposed of. The Thematic Series “Sustainable use of aquatic macrophytes for bioenergy production” concerns the ecological and economical aspects of the management of aquatic macrophytes. The collection focusses not only on the biomass potential and the supply process, but also on the storage and energetic use of mowed aquatic biomass in anaerobic digesters. This Thematic Series provides useful information for researchers as well as for decision-makers from practice and politics.
