The results show that residual biomass has a theoretical energy potential equivalent to the annual energy consumption of Italy and Belgium
combined, with straw and forestry residues comprising the two most productive potential sources. The findings also reveal specific opportunities for regions including Paris (France) and Jaen (south-central Spain)…read more.
