Soil regeneration through biomass to fix damaged mine lands

Mining sector  may now have a possible way to monetize soil regeneration in degraded lands. While deforested areas can only  produce high yields under certain methods, our solutions sequester massive amounts of CO2, produce energy or bio-products creating income in social inclusive models.

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.

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

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

Biomass power in Brazil grows (and it won’t stop!)

Biomass power in Brazil continues to increase and several sources report increments in biomass installed capacity from bagasse and other raw materials. 

Biomass in Argentina: The giant feels greener

Biomass power station announced with PPA 120 U$D/MWh. Government explains support and next steps.

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.
