9780198564362: Biomass, Energy, and Environment: A Developing Country Perspective from India

Developing countries are searching for alternate energy options which promote sustainable development and equity. Modernized bioenergy is shown as an option with potential to meet the rural needs of a large populous country like India, along with significant social, environmental, and economic benefits such as carbon-emission reduction and the promotion of biodiversity. This text uses India as a case study for biomass, energy and environment, which postgraduates and professionals in environmental sciences and energy development planning can use as a model for analyzing the potential for biomass energy for other developing countries.

From the Back Cover:

This book highlights biomass energy options in India which promote land reclamation, local employment, and self-reliance - as well as reducing greenhouse-gas emissions and dependence on oil imports. The authors analyse the sources, end uses, and socio-economic and environmental impacts of biomass energy; suggest measures for promoting sustainable yields, biodiversity, and community involvement in biomass production systems; describe some of the financial and policy barriers; and present strategies for the promotion of bioenergy. They show that land is not a constraint for growing woody biomass, even in a densely populated country such as India, and that appropriate institutional and financial policies can promote the large-scale application of bioenergy in developing countries committed to sustainable and equitable development. Biomass, energy, and environment demonstrates the potential of modernized biomass to meet the fuel and electricity requirements of India's rural population and indicates the potential for biomass in other developing countries, many of which are richer in bioresources than India. It will be of special interest to all those involved in deciding and implementing development, energy, land-use, and environmental policies.

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 1995. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Developing countries are searching for alternative energy options to promote sustainable and equitable development. Bioenergy, especially as a modernized fuel, is known to be an environmentally-sound energy option, but its potential and impacts need to be assessed for each developing country. The current sources, uses, and socio-economic and environmental impacts of biomass energy are analysed for India. The energy needs for development are assessed. Conventional energy planning has not led to equitable and sustainable development. Bioenergy options are shown to have potential to meet the energy needs of rural areas of a populous country like India. Case studies of successful bioenergy projects and economic analysis of bioenergy options are presented. Land is not a constraint to producing woody biomass for energy even in a densely populated country like India. Bioenergy options provide significant socio-economic benefits along with large potential for carbon-emission reduction and promotion of biodiversity in degraded lands. The potential for bioenergy is high for developing-countries of South-east Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa, and South America. There is global interest in bioenergy as a sustainable energy and green house gas emission reduction option. The Indian case study could be a model for other developing countries.
