Bioenergy advocate, Ecotech Alliance is working to shed light on Australia’s need to expand the use of biomass and bioenergy projects both domestically and globally.
Perth, Australia -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/04/2015 -- As more countries around the world embrace green energy, the use of biomass and bioenergy is playing a key role in achieving sustainable energy objectives, energy independence and carbon emission targets.
According to Australian based Ecotech Alliance, the European Union, the UK, the United States of America, Korea, Japan, and other countries, have come to realise that the use of bioenergy is good for their economies. They have also come to understand how it can increase their fuel security and should be part of a sustainable energy mix, however unfortunately; some countries are lagging behind.
Ecotech Alliance points out that Australia still falls behind the rest of the world on both large and small-scale bioenergy projects. Their work centers on advocating a more rapid expansion of bioenergy projects across Australia.
According to Dr. Saliba Sassine of Ecotech Alliance, "Bioenergy has the potential for both domestic consumption purposes and the export market. Initially our project activities are focused on the export market, which in turn will help develop local industries and offers regional benefits in the creation of jobs. Bioenergy also offers new business opportunities, diversification of incomes and risk management for farmers and forestry owners. It can also help manage landscape renewal through actively managing plantation forestry and agricultural waste."
Ecotech Alliance Executive Director, Robert Brodie goes on to say that, "Ecotech Alliance intends to accelerate bioenergy projects in Australia and increase our commitment abroad to help reduce energy costs, waste and carbon emissions across sectors including forestry, agriculture, utilities and local governments. Bioenergy products provide a market for otherwise underutilized materials, such as unmerchantable timber and wood processing waste. Waste from sustainable plantation forestry and agricultural waste residues can also contribute to reducing bushfire risks. We also believe in the strong potential to utilise these wastes in the development of complete commercial scale packages for both thermal and electrical energy."
Furthermore to supporting the growth of ongoing biomass and bioenergy projects like those mentioned by Mr. Brodie, Ecotech Alliance is working towards enhanced support for research and development in bioenergy technologies. They also want to improve parity for renewable fuels versus standard fossil fuels. It is their belief that this is critical for Australia to catch up to other world leaders in this sector.
Always looking to the future, Ecotech Alliance intends to expand their plantations of fast growing bioenergy crops, after recent success with multiple pilot projects that delivered major reductions in production costs and improved efficiencies.
