The increasing use of renewable energy sources as substitutes to fossil fuels has provoked an increase in the production of bioenergy residues. These residues could be effectively used for the recovery and conservation of soil fertility. However, the effect of the organic residues on the soil ecosystem is different depending on their physico-chemical characteristics and, particularly, the knowledge of the impact of bioenergy residues on soil quality is still limited. The aim of this work...
