    Supporting the Diverse and Expanding World of Bioenergy

    How standards can help advance bioenergy initiatives and the clean-tech economy

    CSA GroupTM

    The 2016 signing of the Paris Agreement by 195 countries demonstrates that climate change is a global challenge that requires a great deal of leadership and innovation to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions while protecting global economies. Canada signed the Agreement and, as a result, adopted the Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change. The latest report published by ECCC indicates that Canada’s climate has warmed on average at double the global warming rate and is expected to continue in the future. Among the sources of renewable energy and clean technologies being considered to meet GHG reduction goals is bioenergy. However, the industry is challenged with assessing a variety of sources, processing industries, and final uses under a holistic approach. Standards can address that challenge to help support the development of global markets – all with safety in mind.

    Switchgrass has potential as both dairy cow bedding and feed – especially for dry cows.

    One of its benefits is that it is low in potassium relative to the more commonly used wheat straw.

    Over five million acres of marginal agricultural land in the Northeast USA are no longer in use and have great opportunities for grass biomass production, although environmental or other supplemental compensation may be required for profitable production on low-yielding marginal land. Warm season grasses are considered a viable herbaceous second generation biofuel feedstock but are better suited to marginally productive cropland Future selection through breeding should have a significant focus on low-input types of environments.
