Estimate of Combustion Efficiency in a Forest Clearing Experiment in the Manaus Region

J. A. Carvalho Jr., J. C. Santos, J. M. Santos, N. Higushi


Carbon dioxide generation rates are among the most significant parameters to evaluate and quantify the impact of forest clearing processes on the environment. These rates are calculated based on the average carbon content of the biomass and the total mass above the ground, knowing that only a certain portion of the carbon reacts to carbon dioxide and other gases. This portion is basically the combustion efficiency and depends on the type of forest, on how the trees were cut and piled, on the material size and on the biomass moisture content, among others.
