Bioenergy Crops 2030: 26-34% of total biomass, IRENA said

Bioenergy crops are expected to grow up to 39 EJ by 2030, as analyzed and suggested by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA).

Food security and biofuels: forget about land… problem is yields!

A new study using information from FAO since 1961 to now, has demonstrated that the world has around 3 billion hectares of land not in competition with food.

Bioenergy crops: growing your own clean energy

Small farmers in St.Croix will be able to help their homeland to produce local renewable energy and create social and environmental benefits. Even if small you can make a world of difference.

Energy crops biomass and ecological services

Energy crops in recent projects in the Caribbean have been implemented with our design of biomass hedgerows combining 2 species. Ecological services and renewable energies working together. 

Biomass in Africa: EU funds electrification

Biomass in Africa could have a great potential and benefit from EU aid. The Commission announces new rural electrification projects which will provide access to energy to more than 2 million people in poor rural areas.

5 reasons to cultivate renewable biomass

Biomass can be a good reason to reforest and cultivate perennial species on a degraded world we have changed recently. Renewable energies from perennial cultivated biomass crops can help us to promote a sustainable greener world. 

Energy crops: politics, lobbies and a biobased economy

A very recent sensationalist study from NGO Birdlife indirectly suggests to keep existing monocultures in Europe and fossil energy sources. We suggest a greener scenario where more perennial biomass crops  will reduce carbon to imprtove a bio-based economy. 

New study: Pyrolisis of biomass from North American grasslands

Grasslands can produce biomass to be used in pyrolisis, a technology that rapidly heats biomass in the absence of oxygen to create a liquid fuel intermediate known as bio-oil.

Biomass in Argentina: awakening of a giant

Biomass sector in Argentina is changing very fast. The inminent collapse of the  traditional energy sector started to allow the production of energy from biomass at commercial levels.

Climate change adaptation and lignocellulosic bioenergy crops

Bioenergy crops can be a good strategy for climate change adaptation. Recent studies show benefits and sinergies between energy, environment and food.
