Biomass fuels can significantly mitigate global warming

(American Associates, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev) ‘Every crop we tested had a very significant mitigation capacity despite being grown on very different soils and under natural climate variability,’ says Dr. Ilya Gelfand, of the BGU French Associates Institute for Agriculture and Biotechnology of Drylands, The Jacob Blaustein Institutes for Desert Research. ‘These crops could provide a very significant portion of the decarbonization of US light-duty vehicle transport to curb CO2 emissions and slow global warming.’ Decarbonization of transportation is critical to limit rising temperatures.’
