Energy Crops

Biomass against intermittency

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

Biomass storage: 5 methods compared for willow chips

New study compared biomass storage techniques of willow chips in piles during 12 months. Mositure, ashes and calorific value changes are reported.

How to protect the arable land against desertification?

United Nations (UN) promote actions to fight against desertification during the World Day to Combat Desertification, June 17th. This year the focus is “inclusive cooperation for achieving Land Degradation Neutrality”.

Sugarcane new research to boost profits

Sugarcane and Sorghum might produce much more and boost profits in marginal lands. A new research focused on biomass, oil and improved yields.

Biomass for greenhouse heating

Biomass has always been used for heating systems. But now your greenhouse heating system can have very smart and efficient systems in areas where energy costs are high.

Carbon negative in USA: bioenergy is critical new study found

Carbon negative options have been studied for years. However, today biomass plantations and biochar can easily be a part of any project aiming to mitigate climate change. 

Biomass in deserts? Maybe seed-bombs might help!

Biomass for bio-industries (energy, food or biomaterials) can be a major driver to reforest and make a greener world. Recently several options have been develoepd to make it cheaper.

Biomass in USA in 2030: up to 35% from bioenegy crops

Biomass and energy crops in United States of America are both expected to increase total share of primary energy as reported by IRENA (International Renewable Energy Agency) in its very recent report..

Energy crops getting carbon negative

Energy crops improving soils while producing carbon negative  solutions. We show why, this is the real future to mitigate climate change.

Biomass power: Feedstock cost is the key

Biomass power costs recently published by IRENA showed how critical could be to obtain reductions in feedstock costs and footprint at power station gate. We suggest ways for success.
