Overview of the Sustainable Uses of Peat Soil in Malaysia
Abstract: Peat soil is an important ecosystem that provides a significant contribution to the global climate stability. In Malaysia, peat soils are considered as a soil with little economic benefit, apart from it being used for agricultural activity. The total world coverage of peat soil is about thirty million hectares with Canada and Russia
Peat fires are emerging as a global threat with significant economic, social and ecological impacts. Recent burning of peat bogs in Indonesia, with their large and deep growths containing more than 50 billion tons of carbon, has contributed to increases in world carbon dioxide levels. Peat deposits in southeast Asia could be destroyed by 2040.
Researchers develop method to 3Dprint inexpensive houses
Cut peat blocks were already being used for building houses thousands of years ago. Now, scientists at the University of Tartu have developed a material which could make it possible to print energyefficient houses out of milled peat and oil shale ash using a 3D printer.

20191013&ensp·&enspPeat (/ p iː t /), also known as turf (/ t ɜːr f /), is an accumulation of partially decayed vegetation or organic matter. It is unique to natural areas called peatlands, bogs, mires, moors, or muskegs. The peatland ecosystem is the most efficient carbon sink on the planet, because peatland plants capture CO 2 naturally released from the peat, maintaining an equilibrium.Formation&ensp·&ensp
Peatland hydrology and carbon release: why smallscale
20051024&ensp·&enspChanging climate or management can alter peatland hydrological processes and pathways for water movement across and below the peat surface. It is the movement of water in peats that drives carbon storage and flux. These smallscale processes can have global impacts through exacerbated terrestrial carbon release.
Carbon dioxide sink function in restored milled peatlands
Peat is an important soil resource in Northern Europe mainly used for horticulture and energy. About 10,000 ha of abandoned milled peatlands occur in Estonia (Ramst and Orru, 2009), of which <10% have some afteruse (e.g. forestry, berry or energy crop cultivation, water body or restoration) (Karofeld et al., 2016). By now only about 200 ha

Vacuum harvesting is a method where the upper 23 cm of the bog is milled, and after drying the peat is gathered by using a vacuum harvester. This method results in peat with a greater proportion of fine particles than block peat. At the

Peat as Energy Resource Blogging Hub
Peat is harvested as an important source of fuel in certain parts of the world. By volume, there are about 4 trillion m³ of peat in the world covering a total of around 2% of global land area (about 3 million km²), containing about 8 billion terajoules of energy.
