Bioenergy – Chances and Limits
(Leopoldina) The Leopoldina’s statement “Bioenergy – Chances and Limits” provides a comprehensive analysis of the use of bioenergy. It was compiled by a working group of more than 20 expert scientists established in 2010 and outlines under which conditions the utilization of bioenergy is appropriate.
…Over the past one-and-a-half years, a group of experts from various disciplines have been helping the Leopoldina investigate how Germany can best harness biomass in ways that make sense from the point of view of energy and the climate. The statement on the opportunities and limits of bioenergy analyses the availability and feasibility of using biomass in Germany, provides an overview of energy conversion technologies and introduces promising approaches to producing hydrogen from renewable resources.
The recommendations contained in this statement are intended to provide parliaments, ministries, associations and companies with well-founded and unbiased support in making the important decisions that will lay the foundations for a climate-friendly, secure and sustainable use of bioenergy.
