Most developing countries are recognizing the need to evaluate biomass pellet new business using residues and bioenergy crops. In this post we analyzed 8 reasons to invest on biomass in developing countries.
US boiler manufacture and wood biomass pellets production are both blossoming in United States as well as UK legislation moves forward to increase co-firing.
Several studies and reports confirm that Asian biomass co-firing grows . China, Japan and South Korea are the main consumers while new opportunities and investments are increasingly flowing in the region.
THE BENELUX MARKET CONTINUES TO GROW FAST. The Hague estimates that the Benelux biomass pellets consumption will double during the period 2012 – 2020 to a volume of 5.7 MMT (US$ 1 billion).
A semiarid country like Spain, often have very low grain yields and per hectare income from winter cereals. Since a 16MW straw based power plant in Bivriesca, Burgos, started 200.000 tons/yr and 12M € have been part of the local economy.
Recent trends of bioenergy, lignocellulosic raw materials and grasslands for advanced biofuels, biopower, pulp and biogas show promising perspectives in 2013.
Most recent developments and scientific evidences regarding biofuels’ impacts and sustainability but also methods to evaluate land use changes and bioenergy sustainability have been showing truly complex discussions.
The Chinese National Energy Administration (NEA) has unveiled its 12th five-year plan for renewable energy. Unsurprisingly, the plan focuses on the mature renewable technologies of hydropower, wind power, solar energy and biomass.
Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack has announced $10 million in research grants to spur production of bioenergy and biobased products that will lead to the development of sustainable regional systems and help create jobs.
A unique 22.5 MW biomass-solar hybrid power plant has begun operations in Les Borges Blanques, Spain. The facility was developed by Abantia and Comse Emte and features a MAN Diesel & Turbo SE turbo generator train.
