Technical potentials of biomass for energy services from current agriculture and forestry in selected countries in Europe, The Americas and Asia

Research output: Book/ReportReportResearch

This report is a survey on the technical potential of biomass from current agriculture and forestry in the regions; Europe incl. Russia and Ukraine, USA, Canada, Brazil, Argentina, China and India. The report provides projections for agricultural residue production assuming availability of fertilizers, plant protection and mechanisation. Data for land use, crop yield and production, agricultural residues, forestry potential and surplus land are included in the survey. This survey confirms a number of previous findings showing that there is a large potential of non-food biomass already present in agriculture and forestry. Furthermore the results also show that in some regions the yield from existing agriculture can be significantly increased by simply applying other agricultural practice and technology.
