Short rotation coppice has been used for pulp industries worldwide without considering biomass production for heat, electricity or biofuels during too long.

Short rotation coppice and energy crops for biomass

Today, the biomass sector is experimenting huge development changes on planting material, machinery services, logistic chain optimization and creating jobs and environmental benefits in an unprecedented manner since bioenergy started to be a global issue. Many European countries have thousands of hectares of Short Rotation Coppice (SRC) with commercial development. Many of them are viable commercial export of energy suppliers with highly valuable methods and experience.

Appart from typical willows, poplar and robinia we have experience with Paulownia, Acacia, Eucalyptus and Siberian elm in both temperate and tropical/subtropical conditions. We also can provide assistance developing other species like Tamarix, Atriplex and others suited for constraint environments and semiarid lands

Our experts can provide the following services:

  • Independent advice for planting material ¬†considering local conditions
  • Project development optimization models and software
  • Selection of species and agronomic guideline in tropical and semiarid lands
  • Biomass project development in Europe, Northamerica, Latin America and Asia
  • Harvesting and logistic optimization techniques
  • Harvest machinery design and manufacture projects
  • Short rotation coppice in Latin America. Native species evaluation
