Spatial distribution of agricultural residue from rice for potential biofuel production in China

Elmore AJ, Shi X, Gorence NJ, Li X, Jin H, Wang F, and Zhang X ·

In China, agricultural residues (particularly from rice) are widely used for energy and other applications, albeit on a localized scale and often at poor rates of efficiency. if some portion of this biomass were to be reallocated and transported to central biomass energy facilities, an initial component of the design process would be to gain an understanding of the spatial distribution of biomass production.
