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.

Biofuels: FAO asks to finish “food vs fuel” debate

Biofuels should not be considered a theat anymore as FAO Director, Graziano Da Silva, claimed yesterday in Berlin at the Global Forum for Food and Agriculture

Energy crops in Denmark: perennials won again!

Energy crops are being restricted in Denmark forfor producing biogas and some new rules push producers to limit the share in their feedstock. However perennial grasses and legumes are allowed and promoted.

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).

Biomass in Spain: no subsidies but L’Oreal invested in trigeneration

Biomass in Spain has no subsidies anymore, however L’Oréal officially announced the inauguration of its new biomass plant in Burgos.

Biomass in UK: 38MW Sleaford straw-fired renewable energy plant

Biomass in UK grows.  A new 38MW straw-fired biomass plant has started operations. The area has potential for energy crops and straw bales uses. 

Biomass: Largest plant projected in Belgium (215MW)

Biomass used for power to promote a new bioeconomy. The port of Ghent in Belgium will see Abengoa to develop the largest biomass power plant (215MW) in the world. 

Energy crops can improve EU soil fertility

Recent studies on perennial agriculture to produce biomass for energy have found strong evicence of soil health benefits and carbon sequestration.
