  • Obey optimises bioenergy yield: A proven way of boosting the energy value of wooden biomass

    Since the global increase in energy use is showing few signs of slowing down, sustainable energy solutions have to be developed. For this reason, the energy of biomass has to be used more widely and more efficiently. In forests all over the world a huge amount of logging residue is left lying idle and the bioenergy unused. This could be changed by using Obey, a procedure for optimising bioenergy ...

  • Crop biofuels `create carbon debt` new study shows

    Two studies have shown that changes in land use to produce crop-based biofuels can actually result in more greenhouse-gas emissions than burning fossil fuels. The studies, both published in Science on the 8 February, estimate the impact of converting forests and grasslands into cropland for the production of biofuels. Both conclude that the resulting carbon emissions, released through ...

  • EU scientists confirm bio-energy accounting error

    A major carbon accounting flaw in EU legislation whereby biofuels used in transport and biomass used for power generation are counted as ‘zero emissions’ will have “immense” consequences for the environment.
