Agricultural Biomass for Energy Crops Series: Short Rotation Coppice Willow

Bioenergy Europe's first video of a series of four dedicated to #bioenergy feedstock coming from #agriculture, both perennial energy crops and agricultural residues. In this video we focus on Short Rotation Coppice (SRC) willow highlighting its potential in terms of utilization thanks to its energy characteristics and its specification that allow this plantation to positively contribute to environment and job creation. About agrobiomass: With around 20% of the bioenergy feedstock coming from agriculture, both dedicated energy crops and agricultural residues can be utilised to produce #heat, #electricity and #biofuels. Agricultural #biomass represents an important and sustainable energy source although its potential remains largely untapped. Agricultural biomass is key to achieve Europe’s long-term decarbonisation objectives.
