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 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 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.
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.
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.
A brand new study (2013) found that the projected energy demand (2035) in developing countries, can be covered with energy crops in surplus agricultural lands, then not competing with food production.
Biomass gasification is in use in a number of pilot and demonstration plants but only in a few industrial larg- commercial scale and operational units.
We have selected most recent peer-reviewed publications showing that biomass stoves implementation can improve household income and reduce deforestation caused by uncontrolled fuelwood collection.
Following our recent post on sustainability and land use changes, we include here a new study on land use changes that challenges the EU commission regarding biofuels.
