Contribution of Buffer (Absorption) Capacities to Stability of Closed Ecological Systems with Accelerated Treatment of Plant Biomass 2008-01-1978

This work (summarizing the results of experimentation with Closed Ecological System BIOS-3, Krasnoyarsk, and Russian Siberia in 1989-1998) is an attempt to analyze the process of plant biomass incineration as a source of carbon dioxide for plant photosynthesis and growth and its effects on closed system stability. It is common knowledge that incineration of phytomass supplies into the atmosphere of a Closed Ecological System (CES) not carbon dioxide only, but also gaseous toxic agents inhibiting photosynthetic processes. Mathematical modeling has demonstrated that when the limit value of intensity of production processes and matter turnover specific for every closed ecosystem is exceeded the gaseous toxic agents destroy the system. This value is proportional to CES buffer absorption capacity and is non-linearly dependent on the tolerance of the plant component to the impact of flue gases. Ratios have been derived by assigned intensity of matter turnover to evaluate buffer absorption capacities required for stable operation of CES.
