Cereal straw and other dry byproducts (wood chips) may be used in small on-farm boilers typically to generate heat for drying harvested crops (cereals, oilseeds) or space heating (greenhouses, residential). Furthermore, biogas (predominantly methane) generated from animal wastes (e.g. pig slurry) by anaerobic digestion may also be used to power on-farm boilers typically to generate heat and also electricity in larger and more sophisticated installations.
The performance of such wet biomass (animal waste) systems is outlined in Agriculture and Autonomous Power Supply, EOLSS on-line, 2002, and summarized in Table 3. Autonomous power supply must also include human and animal power (as discussed in Human and Animal Powered Machinery, EOLSS on-line, 2002) which, although of great relevance to small farms in the poorest regions, is otherwise declining in relative importance.
