Carbon sequestration occurs naturally as our biomass crop grows. With concerns about greenhouse gas emissions, this crop offers a solution to this challenge.
As a renewable source of feedstock, biomass does not deplete non-renewable fossil fuels.
The crop easily adapts to organic production methods, with only minimal fertilizer or pesticides needed for crop establishment.
Biomass production on underutilized land or marginal land benefits society by not competing for arable land used for food and fiber production. These lands can become an economic driver for growth in rural areas.
