This market assessment reports on alternative fuels opportunities in the cement sector in Ethiopia. The assessment examined different experiences and possible options to utilize municipal, commercial and industrial waste, along with tires, sewage sludge and agricultural residue in cement kilns in key production clusters.

Restoration of degraded land can create vast bioenergy crop potential, without constraining food crops or other land use options. This presents an important opportunity for African countries to develop modern, sustainable bioenergy from rapidly growing wood crops at the same time as pursuing ambitious forest landscape restoration initiatives.

Windhoek – The Southern Africa Development Community (SADC) region is by far energy insecure with more than 50 percent of the population without access to clean and affordable energy while electric

Bioenergy is the main source of renewable energy today.

Moisture response functions for soil microbial carbon (C) mineralization remain a critical uncertainty for predicting ecosystem-climate feedbacks. Theory and models posit that C mineralization declines under elevated moisture and associated anaerobic conditions, leading to soil C accumulation. Yet, iron (Fe) reduction potentially releases protected C, providing an under-appreciated mechanism for C destabilization under elevated moisture. Here we incubate Mollisols from ecosystems under C3/C4 plant rotations at moisture levels at and above field capacity over 5 months.

Residents from Delhi and the National Capital Region can now expect relief next year from the pollution caused due to the burning of stubble by farmers in Punjab and Harayana.

Sub-Saharan Africa possesses considerable resources to produce sustainable liquid biofuels, based on biomass feedstocks that would neither conflict with food supplies nor add to carbon dioxide emissions.

This report provides an overview of the clean cooking energy sector in India, including policy and market developments over the last few years. It outlines the key ecosystem-level challenges in creating sustained demand for clean cooking energy products and in building capacity for manufacturers and suppliers of such solutions.

Buoyed by record production of wind energy compared to last year

The expansion of mini-grids in Tanzania, enabled by bold and adaptive energy policies, is bridging the gap for the population lacking access to electricity.
