Abstract

Crop residues represent significant source of renewable energy in agricultural regions and their energetic utilization could contribute to decreased energy dependence on fossil fuels, increased utilization of local, low-cost fuels, facilitate sustainable development of rural communities, improve air quality and decrease negative environmental impact of energy sector. Total potential of biomass in Serbia amounts to 12.5 million tons a year, and in Vojvodina (northern Province) 9 million tons or 72%. Within than, crop husbandry in AP Vojvodina generates more than 6 million tons of biomass waste every year. Most common crop residues in Serbia are wastes from cereal cultivation, such as wheat straw, corn stover and corn cobs, soy straw, etc., corn being the most cultivated crop. Despite their significant energetic potential, combustion of crop residues is associated with several issues, such as increased gaseous and particulate emissions, ash sintering/melting, fouling in the combustion chamber, etc. By applying discussed primary and secondary measures for increasing combustion efficiency and reduce emissions, crop residues can be utilized as fuels for small scale heat generation in agricultural regions.
