Biotransformation of Plant Biomass in Closed Cycle 961417
Biotransformation of plant biomass in closed cycle has been studied. The cycle closed in terms of solid matter was as follows: plants - plant residue - mushrooms - worms - soil substrate - plants. Basic feasibility to grow plants on endogenous (produced in a closed cycle) soil substrate has been demonstrated. The role of the soil substrate as a depot of biogenous elements and a junction of matter turnover has been analyzed.
