 Summary:
 In Vojvodina, where crop husbandry is the most widespread agricultural production, straw/shells combustion represents a perspective way for renewable energy and there is a serious interest from farmers for biomass utilization for energy purposes. The average yearly biomass wastes in Vojvodina make 9 million tons only in the agriculture. The energetic use of the post-harvest residues is the technological combustion process by which large amount of ash is generated. These ashes are, in Serbia, either used as a fertilizer or disposed on the landfills, occupying valuable land and polluting the environment. This paper provides data on the availability of biomass ashes in Vojvodina and experimental analysis of their possible application as an mineral additive in cement-based composites. This research is supported by IPA Interreg project - Agricultural Waste – Challenges and Business Opportunities.
