United Nations (UN) promote actions to fight against desertification during the World Day to Combat Desertification, June 17th. This year the focus is “inclusive cooperation for achieving Land Degradation Neutrality”.
Sugarcane and Sorghum might produce much more and boost profits in marginal lands. A new research focused on biomass, oil and improved yields.
Biomass for bio-industries (energy, food or biomaterials) can be a major driver to reforest and make a greener world. Recently several options have been develoepd to make it cheaper.
Biomass costs would be lower than those of most fossil energy sources in most countries of the world. IRENA recent report reveals how technologies are reaching grid parity.
Bioenergy crops are expected to grow up to 39 EJ by 2030, as analyzed and suggested by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA).
Recent studies on perennial agriculture to produce biomass for energy have found strong evicence of soil health benefits and carbon sequestration.
A new study using information from FAO since 1961 to now, has demonstrated that the world has around 3 billion hectares of land not in competition with food.
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.
