The potential of banana crop residues as a source of bioenergy

Wednesday, 25 May 2016

A report from the Polytechnic University of Madrid claims that using crop residues generated by banana production for bioenergy applications could cover 55% of the electricity demand in Ecuador's province of El Oro. The GIS study estimates that 190,102 tons of crop residues from a potentially exploitable area of 38,604 hectares would produce 19m liters of bioethanol.
