Description:

Energy crops: current status and future prospects.

Summary / Notes:

Energy crops currently contribute a relatively small proportion to the total energy produced from biomass each year, but the proportion is set to grow over the next few decades. This paper reviews the current status of energy crops and their conversion technologies, assesses their potential to contribute to global energy demand and climate mitigation over the next few decades, and examines the future prospects. Keywords: bioenergy, biofuel, biotechnology, climate change, energy crops.

Year: 2006
