Report: Biofuels And Bioenergy To Play ‘Integral’ Role In Energy Transition

A new multi-landmark report has been released by government-led, multi-stakeholder initiative Biofuture Platform detailing how biofuels and bioproducts ‘must play an integral role’ in the future of the global energy transition. Entitled Creating the Biofuture: A Report on the State of the Low Carbon Bioeconomy, the report uses models and scenarios outlined by the International […]

Drax Reports Renewable Capacity Triumph Over Fossil Fuels

New research from energy company Drax Power revealed that total capacity available from UK renewables has overtaken fossil fuels for the first time, which includes biomass’ contribution of 3.2GW. The promising results are according to Drax’s Electric Insight Report, which was produced independently by researchers from Imperial College London. The report also looks at why […]

Biomass Could Fuel European Energy For 43 Days In 2018

Biomass could cover the energy needs of all 28 member states of the EU from 19 November to the end of the year, according to Bioenergy Europe. The figures have been announced as part of the build up to Bioenergy Europe’s ‘European Bioenergy Day’, which will be held on 19 November to mark the point […]

Study: Are Wood Pellets A Green Fuel?

James Watt’s steam engine vaulted coal to its major role as a fuel for the Industrial Revolution. Today, about 40% of the world’s electricity is generated in coal-fired power plants, consuming more than 80% of the coal mined each year. Because combustion of coal produces carbon dioxide (CO2) and other air pollutants, efforts to combat […]

Researchers: Wood Pellets Beat Fossil Fuels In Reducing Emissions

Using wood pellets for home heating fuel reduces greenhouse gas emissions by more than half over fossil fuels and natural gas, according to new research from the NH Agricultural Experiment Station at the University of New Hampshire. “Wood pellet heat is a new and growing heating alternative in the U.S. and has been proposed as […]

Massachusetts Includes Wood Biomass In Alternative Energy Standards

The state’s Department of Energy Resources has filed its proposed final version of guidelines that will allow the burning of tree material, as well as other technologies, to qualify for financial incentives as renewable energy sources. The final draft regulations, which were filed on Friday, provide subsidies for “woody biomass” — in other words, the […]

UNH Study: Wood Pellet Heating Reduces Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Using wood pellets for home heating fuel reduces greenhouse gas emissions by more than half over fossil fuels and natural gas, according to new research from the N.H. Agricultural Experiment Station at the University of New Hampshire. John Gunn, research assistant professor of forest management and researcher with station, and colleagues with the Spatial Informatics […]

UGA Study: U.S. Biomass Electricity Possible But Costly

If the U.S. wants to start using wood pellets to produce energy, either the government or power customers will have to pay an extra cost, a new University of Georgia study has found. Right now, “it’s just not economically feasible to use wood pellets in energy production,” said Bin Mei, associate professor of forest resource […]

Biofuels: From Wood To Wing?

The northwest United States has an abundance of forest residuals – underbrush and slash– left over from harvesting and forest restoration treatments, as well as mill and urban wood waste. All of these feedstocks are forms of woody biomass. This abundance of woody biomass creates considerable potential for wood-based bioenergy development in the region, particularly […]

Renewable Energy Industries Employ 8 Million+

From: Wood Bioenergy Editors More than 8 million are employed in renewable energy industries worldwide, and that number rises to 9.8 million if large-scale hydropower projects are included, according to a recent report from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), Renewable Energy and Jobs – Annual Review 2017. Officials with IRENA note the figures show […]
