Final Report - BIOSAFOR (Biosaline agroforestry: Remediation of saline wastelands through the production of biosaline biomass (for bioenergy, fodder and biomaterials))

Project ID: 32502
Funded under: FP6-INCO

Abstract

This is the final activity report of the European Commission (EC)-funded BIOSAFOR project, which investigated the global potential of woody biomass for energy from salt affected land through the application of suitable Agroforestry (AF) practices. The project focussed on the tree component of AF systems and aimed at contributing to the remediation of saline wastelands and at investigating their potential role in the regional and global demand for bioenergy and biomaterials.

The document firstly provides an overview of the project background and then focuses on the undertaken activities and the implemented methodology, which are presented in detail. Moreover, the obtained results are analysed. Finally, the report closes with a series of recommendations and policy measures that were obtained during BIOSAFOR.
