Marginal lands

Agave: from ‘fuel or food’ to ‘fuel and more food

Researchers confirmed potential for new plantations in drylands under constraint environmental conditions.

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.

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.

Reforestation for bioenergy: Brazil-US massive plan

Reforestation used for biomass energy is becoming a major driver to combat climate change and desertification. Brazil and US annouced a new agreement for 12 million ha

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 EU market to increase reforestation in US

Biomass markets in EU are expected to push US reforestation programs for timber and pellets in Southern states, USDA Forest service found.

Biomass stoves reduced deforestation in Tanzania

Biomass stoves recently implemented in some districts in Tanzania, has revealed that successful use of the constructed 13,301 units can reduce firewood consumption. 

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.
