Most developing countries are recognizing the need to evaluate biomass pellet new business using residues and bioenergy crops. In this post we analyzed 8 reasons to invest on biomass in developing countries.
A broader mix of bioenergy crops to reduce environmental impacts is suggested in last report issued by the European Environment Agency.
Several studies and reports confirm that Asian biomass co-firing grows . China, Japan and South Korea are the main consumers while new opportunities and investments are increasingly flowing in the region.
THE BENELUX MARKET CONTINUES TO GROW FAST. The Hague estimates that the Benelux biomass pellets consumption will double during the period 2012 – 2020 to a volume of 5.7 MMT (US$ 1 billion).
Lignocellulosic crops have shown in recent decades a more efficient pathway to produce energy and also lower environmental impacts. Life cycle assessments show that fertilizers efficiency is critical as well as expected yields and extractions levels when producing energy crops. We discuss implications and criteria to apply.
A semiarid country like Spain, often have very low grain yields and per hectare income from winter cereals. Since a 16MW straw based power plant in Bivriesca, Burgos, started 200.000 tons/yr and 12M € have been part of the local economy.
Second EU call for proposals financing commercial demonstration projects on carbon storage and innovative REs as well under the scheme for greenhouse gas emission allowances trading within the Community established
Recent trends of bioenergy, lignocellulosic raw materials and grasslands for advanced biofuels, biopower, pulp and biogas show promising perspectives in 2013.
The sustainable use of energy crops for biogas is a possible solution to reduce the contribution to climate change of human activities. Power based on biomass, in particular biogas, is increasing, with a concomitant increase in the need for energy crop production.
The Chinese National Energy Administration (NEA) has unveiled its 12th five-year plan for renewable energy. Unsurprisingly, the plan focuses on the mature renewable technologies of hydropower, wind power, solar energy and biomass.
