ADC (%) = 100 - [100 x (% marker in diet / % marker in feces) x (% nutrient or kJ [g.sup.-1] of gross energy in feces / % nutrient or kJ [g.sup.-1] of gross energy in diet)]
Gross energy was obtained by combustion of the samples in an adiabatic calorimeter (model 6300, Parr Instrument Company, Moline, IL, USA).
This week's planning applications for Monklands which have been submitted to North Lanarkshire Council are as follows - North Lanarkshire Bio Power: alterations to approved plans for energy from easte (EfW) processing building incorporating reduction in building footprint, changes to building design, increase in height of ventilation stack to 80m, increase in gross energy output to 27MW, increase in throughput of waste fuel by 24,000 tonnes to 204,000 dry tonnes per annum, and associated access improvements to A8 junction; at land at former Shanks & McEwan site, 251 Glasgow and Edinburgh Road, Coatbridge.
The average energy expenditure during the session was 296.55 kcal [+ or -] 59.03 at a mean of 3.76 [+ or -] 0.99 kcal x kg (-1) relative to gross energy (GE) per pound of weight during the 45 min session.
The BMW eDrive technology on hand also includes a high-voltage lithium-ion battery with cell capacity of 34Ah and gross energy capacity of 11.6kWh.
Analyses for dry matter, ash, crude protein, total lipid, gross energy, and fatty acid profile were performed.
The result is more power with the gross energy rating now up 7.1kWh to 11.6kWh giving the electric motor that drives the front wheels a power output of 143 horsepower.
Therefore, it will come as no surprise to learn that the UAE is already one of the most urbanised countries in the world and, as a result, gross energy consumption will grow rapidly, at around 5% to 2020.
Replicate samples (1 g oven-dried at 70[degrees]C) were sent to the Wildlife Habitat and Nutrition Laboratory for freeze drying, grinding, and estimation of percent crude protein (% nitrogen times 6.25), percent in vitro dry-matter digestibility, and gross energy (cals [g.sup.-1]).
