The biomass sector in Jamaica is just in the begginings. Sugarcane bagasse is the main source and other residues and energy crops are being considered in new projects.
Nitrogen fertilizers are responsible of most biofuels sustainability limitations in life cycle assessments and carbon footprint. But some very realistic strategies and new findings would help to reduce their impacts.
Diversification helps to reduce risk. Learn about how a flexible fuel biomass supply system can be a better approach.
A brand new study (2013) found that the projected energy demand (2035) in developing countries, can be covered with energy crops in surplus agricultural lands, then not competing with food production.
The European Union assembly fixed a 6 percent limit on the use of crop-based biofuels in ground transport, seeking to spur the development of clean fuels from non-food sources.
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 very recent research publication found harvested area with food crops to be increasing during 2000-2010 period simultaneously with biofuel expansion.
Biobased industries invest millions on feedstock and supply chains with energy crops. Find 10 ways to save millions on energy crops asking for independent advice and avoid huge risks.
Small plots and research scales are not as realistic as productivity from field plots when making economic assumptions in any project.
Miscanthus among perennial bioenergy crops in northern EU, has been promoted during last decade for heat and power production. After cultivating more than 12,000 hectares in UK, too low average yields (10-12 odt/ha per year) and high costs of delivered biomass (60-140 €/odt) are becoming major constraints
