Non-food biomass in US to reach 1bn ton in 2040

Non-food Biomass plantations would take a major role in United States bioeconomy during next decades. 

Improving logistics in Napiergrass during harvest operations

Napiergrass is one of highest yielding crops in tropical countries that can be used for pulp and bioenergy. A logistic system optimization is required in several environments. Its tall stalks and low leaves/stalk  ratios (below 40%) allow high process efficiency for both pulp and energy uses and also a low biomass production cost.

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..
