Cover Story (view full-size image): In the process of bio-ethanol production from rice straw, by-products such as lignin-based residue and vinasse are also produced. To consider a possible way to use these by-products, we investigated the effects of rice straw removal and rice straw-based bio-ethanol production residue application on rice growth and methane (CH4) emissions from a paddy field over three years. In this study, bio-ethanol production from rice straw and subsequent application of its residue to paddy fields is considered to be a promising technology which can obtain new sustainable energy and suppress CH4 emissions without any inhibition on rice growth.
