Késia Silva Lourenço completed her BSc degree in Agronomic Engineering at the University of Santa Catarina (UDESC), Brazil in 2010. During her bachelor, she worked on soil fertility and plant nutrition. After that, she continued her education. In 2011 she started her MSc studies in soil management at the University of Santa Catarina, Brazil. During her MSc thesis at the group of Chemical and Soil Fertility, she studied the reactions of N in the soil after application of organic and inorganic fertilizers in the presence or absence of urease inhibitors under the supervision of Prof. dr. Paulo Roberto Ernani. For this work, she received a grant from "Coordination for the Improvement of Higher Education Personnel (CAPES). In 2013, she started her PhD project in collaboration with Agronomic Institute of Campinas (IAC) and Netherlands Institute of Ecology (NIOO/KNAW) under the supervision of Dr. Heitor Cantarella, Prof. dr. J.A. van Veen and Dr. Eiko E. Kuramae. In 2013, she moved to Campinas, Brazil and started her PhD research under the supervision of Dr Heitor Cantarella (IAC) where she did the experimental work and greenhouse gas analyses. In 2015 she moved to the Netherlands and continued her PhD under supervision of Dr. Eiko E. Kuramae (NIOOKNAW) and Prof. dr. J.A. van Veen (NIOOKNAW and Leiden University).

Nitrogen fertilization has been one of the main sources of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to the atmosphere in sugarcane cultivation, mainly due to the emission of nitrous oxide (N2O). Recent studies indicate that the application of vinasse (concentrated-VC and in natura), a byproduct of ethanol production - especially with the addition of nitrogen (N) - results in significant increases...
Nitrogen (N) fertilization is the main source of greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions to the atmosphere in sugarcane cultivation, mainly due to nitrous oxide (N2O) emission. Some management practices of sugarcane production in Brazil may affect the rates of greenhouse gas emissions, such as the recycling of the waste generated during ethanol production (vinasse). Recent studies indicate tha...
