e-infrastructure Roadmap for Open Science in Agriculture

A bibliometric study

The e-ROSA project seeks to build a shared vision of a future sustainable e-infrastructure for research and education in agriculture in order to promote Open Science in this field and as such contribute to addressing related societal challenges. In order to achieve this goal, e-ROSA’s first objective is to bring together the relevant scientific communities and stakeholders and engage them in the process of coelaboration of an ambitious, practical roadmap that provides the basis for the design and implementation of such an e-infrastructure in the years to come.

This website highlights the results of a bibliometric analysis conducted at a global scale in order to identify key scientists and associated research performing organisations (e.g. public research institutes, universities, Research & Development departments of private companies) that work in the field of agricultural data sources and services.

The experimental study on biogas power generation enhanced by using waste heat to preheat inlet gases


A 30 kW generator at the Taiwan Sugar Swine Farm in Taichung was used to collect data intended for long-term electricity generation. This three-part experimental study utilized a biogas with a 73% methane concentration. First, the effect of the biogas supply rate on generator performance at different excess air ratios is investigated. Second, the results from this study are compared with results obtained from work performed on a biogas with a 60% methane concentration. Finally, for a 73% methane concentration biogas, the effect on generator performance of preheating the inlet gas to different temperatures is investigated by applying a waste-heat recovery system. Power generation increases with increasing biogas methane concentration, except when A (excess air ratio) < similar to 0.85. However, thermal efficiency increases with increasing methane concentration only when lambda > similar to 0.95, although on the relatively rich side (lambda < 0.95), there is no benefit. The improved generator performance obtained by preheating the inlet gas is apparent when the excess air ratio is relatively high, such as when lambda > 1.3. (C) 2012 Elsevier Ltd.
