Can Biomass Production on Urban Brownfields be a Viable Concept?

J. Ponitka, J. Kretzschmar & D. Thrän
Growing conflicts in land use, food production and nature conservation in terms of increasing energy crop production arise. Therefore it is essential to develop alternative land resources, such as urban brownfields, considered as every previously used and now unused area. The main focus is the investigation of options to produce biomass on urban brownfields for energy recovery, assuming that there is no foreseeable demand for a certain unused, idle site or its reuse would be...
