  • Invest in `green` biomass fuels

    With the right policies and investment in research, developing nations can turn their dependence on biomass fuels into a renewable and sustainable energy supply, says Duncan Macqueen. Fuels derived from biomass — mainly wood, but also plant and animal matter — produce lower greenhouse gas emissions than fossil fuels, and can be converted into heat, electricity, liquid or gas. Yet they ...
