Using Bioenergy Byproducts to Curb Greenhouse Gas

Researchers in the Joint BioEnergy Institute, the Energy Technologies Area at Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley published a study analyzing how bioenergy byproducts can be beneficial for carbon sequestration and greenhouse gas mitigation in California, when used to improve soil quality on degraded lands.

Their findings predict that as bioenergy facilities scale up, bioenergy byproducts land application has the potential to meet half of the annual goal for working/natural lands greenhouse gas reduction in the State’s scoping plan for 2030.
