Bioenergy crops in marginal lands: Lower yields can have lower costs

Bioenergy crops in marginal lands have been always  a focus of attention for researchers, bioenergy companies and governments. But those areas would clearly have lower yields. Are lower cost feasible in those regions?.

Sustainable energy crops for biogas

The sustainable use of  energy crops for biogas is a possible solution to reduce the contribution to climate change of human activities. Power based on biomass, in particular biogas, is increasing, with a concomitant increase in the need for energy crop production.

7 alternatives as energy crops for marginal lands

Several experiences have been providing evidences on the feasibility of marginal lands bioenergy. We selected promising alternatives for biofuels, heat and electricity in semiarid environments, abandoned lands and low competitive regions.
