Seedballs are a form of direct seeding, where the seeds are coated within a ball of clay or other materials such as biochar and then spread by various means. They are mostly used in reforestation, but can also be used to improve pasture, establish mixed improved fallows, etc.
"Today’s urban farmers don’t just grow food to eat; they also see urban agriculture as a way to increase the biodiversity in cities, bringing people from different backgrounds and age groups together, improving mental and physical health and regenerating derelict neighbourhoods".
The aim of these forest inventory based tools is to provide accurate and to-the-point information concerning European forests, their management and the fulfillment of ecosystem services delivered by the forests under different scenarios.
More than 30 computers sit on the second floor of a former car museum west of Winnipeg, quietly working to mine bitcoin. The heat generated by those computers helps warm nearby plants in a makeshift greenhouse. (opens in new tab)
The Dutch chemical industry (VNCI) asked consultancies Ecofys and Berenschot to analyse potential pathways towards 80-95 percent reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. This report is the result.
This toolset gives access to data from S2Biom project, which supports the sustainable delivery of non-food biomass feedstock at local, regional and pan European level through developing harmonised data sets, strategies and roadmaps on multiple levels.
"Modern bioenergy is critical to meeting global climate change goals", say Kimmo Tiillikainen, Minister of the Environment, Energy and Housing of Finland, and Fatih Birol, Executive Director of IEA, the International Energy Agency, 2018.
This report takes a close look at the consequences of growing demand for chemical products, and what can be done to accelerate a clean energy transition for the petrochemical industry.

The Paris Agreement demands tougher action to remove greenhouse gas emissions from the atmosphere. We must, at the same time, prepare for the inevitable climate change that is already happening. In this context, current uses of land in the UK must change.
This report by the UK's Climate Change Committee identifies areas where changes can enable land-owners to deliver climate change mitigation and adaptation objectives, among the other priorities for land use.
Achieving a fossil-free commercial transport system in the timeframe of the Paris Agreement target is not only possible, but also financially attractive from a societal perspective. This is the key conclusion of The Pathways Study initiated by Scania.

This study, commissioned by ePURE, assesses the potential contribution of low carbon fuels in decarbonising conventionally fuelled light duty vehicles in the EU from 2020-2050.
Prognos AG, Berlin/Basel, the Deutsche Biomasse Forschungszentrum DBFZ and UMSICHT were commissioned by the German mineral oil industry associations to draw up a study on the prospects of liquid energy sources in the energy transition.
In deze studie (door Probos, in opdracht van RVO) is het Nederlandse houtige biomassa-potentieel in beeld gebracht en zijn daarnaast de vraag en het aanbod van lokaal beschikbare houtige biomassa in een aantal scenario’s met elkaar geconfronteerd.
