  • See how 30-year-old sawmill residue piles can become the biomass equivalent of an “oil gusher”.  
  • Clearing 100,000 ha of encroaching Acacia Thornbush in Namibia can save the cheetah habitat, restore mixed woodland/savannah landscape, and create 100’s of jobs in a region of 60% unemployment.
  • See how dwindling supply of fresh sawmill bark allowed pellet producers to explore sustainable forest harvest residues, which Scandinavians have done for decades.
  • See how Sugar Cane Bagasse in Brazil can be re-directed into efficient bioenergy.
