Last 20h October BECOOL Project was showcased at ETIP Bioenergy 9th Stakeholder Plenary Meeting in Brussels with the presentation “Lignocellulosic biomass and food crops: sustainable intensification of agriculture in the framework of the BECOOL project” by Andrea Parenti, University of Bologna.
“Integrating lignocellulosic energy crops in agricultural rotations with traditional food crops can have positive impacts on the fertility of soils, and can contribute to reduce soil erosion and the need for agrochemicals and fertilizers. The BECOOL project aims at fostering the sustainable development of the advanced biofuel value chain in Europe and Brazil reducing global GHG emissions from transport sector. At the core, biomass production, logistic and conversion processes have been tackled. In this framework, we are exploring innovative agronomic solutions to intensify existing cropping system embedding new annual lignocellulosic crops specifically cultivated to maximize the biomass production without reducing food land”.
