Esiste un’ampia disponibilità di biomasse residuali che spesso non vengono adeguatamente sfruttate Fra queste può rientrare la biomassa di Arundo donax derivante dalla periodica manutenzione degli alvei fluviali.
The riparian vegetation is a valuable biomass that can be advantageously exploited for energy use. This could represent an added value improving the economic sustainability of activities ecologically fundamental but unprofitable. Moreover, the recent European policies on the progressive replacement of fossil fuels with renewable sources needs to produce non-food energy crops using marginal lands or lands not devoted to agricultural production in order to avoid the subtraction of soil to traditional crops and the increase in the prices of food crops. Objective of the present study was the comparison of two machineries for the chopping of the spontaneous plants of giant reed (Arundo donax L.) growing alongside the river banks and the analysis of the product obtained in order to evaluate its suitability for the use in biorefinery. Although the current interest in biomass potential productivity from riparian habitats is greater than in the past, very few studies have analyzed the potential chain that could involve the use of riparian biomass for energy purposes. This study has allowed to acquire precious indications about the identification of the mechanization lines suitable for the handling of riparian vegetation of Arundo and to make a first evaluation of the characteristics of the product aimed at its energy use.
