Why bioenergy crops (already) met expectations?

A brand new study (Nov 27th, 2017) revealed that there is enough consensus for conclusive evidence that perennial bioenergy crops can mitigate climate change emissions with very high savings of CO2 when cultivated on marginal lands.

Bioenergy will have a key role in global decarbonization

Imagine a world where biomass can be used to produce energy and high value added products while sustainable carbon farming and processing technology take CO2 from air and put it back into the ground.

Biomass against intermittency

Combining renewable technologies such as wind or solar with biomass sources could boost renewable energies implementation in many areas.

Hydrogen production from raw biomass

Hydrogen production study focused on new method by photocatalytic reforming was released by scientists in the United Kingdom.
