Wooden construction elements often exhibit lower life cycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions than conventional counterparts ('material substitution effect'). Moreover, the building stock represents a carbon (C) sink if timber inflows (construction) surpass outflows (demolition) ('C-stock effect'). A dynamic stock model incorporating these effects is applied to quantify potential climate benefits of wood construction in Austria's residential building sector. Read More

Carbon mineralization in soil as influenced by crop residue type and placement in an of Northwest India.

Carbon Manag 2019 1;10(1):37-50. Epub 2019 Feb 1.

International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT), New Delhi, India.

Carbon (C) mineralization of crop residues is an important process occurring in soil which is helpful in predicting CO emission to the atmosphere and nutrient availability to plants. A laboratory experiment was conducted in which C mineralization of residues of rice (), wheat (), maize (), mungbean () and their mixtures was applied to the soil surface or incorporated into an Alfisols from Northwest India. C mineralization was significantly affected by residue placement and type and their interactions. Read More
