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.

Forests or deserts? fossil economy or bioeconomy? choose!

Forests, green covers, perennial grasses, biodiverse farms, natural vegetation, food crops, rotational management, carbon farming, regenerative agriculture, permaculture, carbon sequestration.  It’s all this or deserts. Its bioeconomy or fossil energy?.

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

Energy crops: study shows increased biodiversity

Energy crops and in particular short rotation coppice, is being suggested to promote biodiversity while renewable energy is produced.  

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. 

Perennial energy crops stimulate belowground fauna, new study says

Perennial energy crops and biodiversity could be benefitial for fauna in metal contaminated soils, said a very recent article published in Biomass and Bioenergy Journal (Feb 2014).
