A better future
From price volatility to supply insecurity to unacceptable environmental costs, the challenges associated with fossil fuels are growing. This has led to rising demand for alternate energy sources, as well as a focused effort by energy innovators to find viable new options.
One answer is woody biomass. Long used as an inexpensive, convenient and abundant source of fuel, woody biomass is being rediscovered as a clean, renewable and carbon-neutral energy solution.
In Europe, shrub willow has been grown successfully as an energy crop for decades. Now, after more than 20 years of selective breeding, fast-growing, energy-dense willow hybrids are available in North America, providing landowners with the opportunity to utilize marginal terrain and end-users with a long term, reliable, home grown and cost-effective fuel source.
Many farms have large marginal areas that are underutilized or uneconomic for food crops but well-suited for willow production. Bionera’s professional, experienced team can help you put these areas to productive and economic use.
