Forests, Trees and Landscapes for Food Security and Nutrition

Forests could save the planet, we all know that. But a new United Nations-backed report on the link between forests and food production and nutrition says that woodlands could be the key to ending hunger

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 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 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..

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.

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.

Biomass costs lower than fossil energy (IRENA says)

Biomass costs would be lower than those of most fossil energy sources in most countries of the world. IRENA recent report reveals how technologies are reaching grid parity.
