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.

Improving logistics in Napiergrass during harvest operations

Napiergrass is one of highest yielding crops in tropical countries that can be used for pulp and bioenergy. A logistic system optimization is required in several environments. Its tall stalks and low leaves/stalk  ratios (below 40%) allow high process efficiency for both pulp and energy uses and also a low biomass production cost.

Biomass power in Brazil grows (and it won’t stop!)

Biomass power in Brazil continues to increase and several sources report increments in biomass installed capacity from bagasse and other raw materials. 

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.

Energy crops for biogas in the Caribbean, a great sustainable alternative

Producing energy crops for biogas is not new in Europe. However, highest yielding energy crops in a tropical environment and combined use of wastes and high technology in a very sustainable approach to produce power is something never happened before. 

Energy crops pellets: a revolution for biomass sector

Energy crops pellets are technically feasible . A lot of progress by companies developing technology and recent research produce densification in biomass from herbaceous crops or by mixing herbaceous and woody biomass.

Pakistan biomass sector: Bagasse-fired power plants to change tariffs

Pakistan biomass sector rising:. The Economic Co-ordination Committee (ECC) of the Cabinet is to approve standardised security agreement on upfront tariff to be signed by the government

Jamaica: biomass and energy crops growing up!

The biomass sector in Jamaica is just in the begginings. Sugarcane  bagasse is the main source and other residues and energy crops are being considered in new projects. 

Energy crops could cover energy demand in surplus agricultural lands

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. 

Biofuels sustainability: Not all alternatives are the same.

From food debate and land use changes effects to biofuels sustainability, a lot of scientific findings show great differences among alternatives. We joined best scientific information.
