About this book

This book focuses primarily on the advantages and implications of sustainable bioenergy production in terms of ensuring a more sustainable world despite its growing energy demands. It addresses a new concept that focuses on the interactions between different uses of agricultural land (for example, agriculture for food, forage or energy and nature conservation) and their ecological, economic and societal impacts. This research concept provides new insights into the competition for resources and the synergies between different land uses. This book seeks to improve people’s understanding of bioenergy’s potentials for the future. It will be of interest not only to those involved in sustainable energy, but also to environmental planners, agriculture and soil specialists, and environmental policy-makers.

Reviews

“This interdisciplinary book focuses on the use of agricultural land … on ecological, economic and societal impacts of these uses thus opening new trends in Sustainable Bioenergy Production. … Each contribution and the book as a whole give to the reader the strong feeling of an excellent scientific text … . this book is a very nice example to be followed for other scientific topics which aim to improve the quality of human life communities, in harmony with Planet Earth.” (Ioan I. Ardelean, Bulletin of Micro and Nanoelectrotechnologies, Vol. 6 (1-2), 2015)

“Editors/geoscientists Ruppert, Kappas, and Ibendorf (all, Univ. of Gӧttingen, Germany) have collaborated on a 14-chapter, seven-part volume exploring an integrated approach to bioenergy assessment. … the volume’s greater coverage of social issues and integration across sustainability dimensions will be welcome. … Summing Up: Recommended. Only comprehensive collections on energy resources, graduate students and above.” (B. D. Solomon, Choice, Vol. 51 (7), March, 2014)
