Converting Rubber Plantation into Energy Plantation

The fall of rubber prices was followed by the omission until the logging of the plantations. These rubber plantations become damaged and even bare and provide no benefit and even potentially catastrophic. Farmers and rubber entrepreneurs would want to recover even if it could be better about the condition of their previous income hangs from the rubber. It is very likely to be done if they are willing to do it. One of them is by converting the rubber plantation into an energy plantation. What kind of energy plantation should be sought? The multipurpose energy plantations so it can provide many benefits and respite from various obstacles. For more details about the multipurpose energy plantation, can be read here.
Just like the food sector, energy demand is also increasing along with population growth. With Indonesia's population reaching 260 million, energy demand is also very big, especially with export market demand driven by climate improvement efforts by lowering the temperature of the earth or reducing the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere, the energy needs, especially renewable energy, more specifically the biomass fuel will also be very big. Wood pellets are very popular biomass fuels and include carbon neutral because they do not increase the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere. The problem of expensive and scarce energy of 3 kg LPG gas in many areas in Indonesia should also be overcome with the wood pellet.

Currently rubber plantations in Indonesia have an area of ​​3.4 million hectares or ranked no. 1 of the world followed by Thailand as the second rank with 2 million hectares, and is potential to be converted into a multipurpose energy plantation. In addition to producing wood as a source of energy as a main product and managed sustainably, energy plantation is also able to sheep farming that produce meat with very economical. Honey bee farming can also enrich and provide additional attractive income.

Carbon Positive, Carbon Carbon Neutral or Negative?

Greenhouse gases from burning fossilfuels have caused the Earth's temperature to rise. Increasing the temperature of the earth or global warming causing numerous disasters due to climate change in a number of places on earth. When greenhouse gases not controlled then the result of damage to the environment of the earth will be more severe. Therefore, efforts were made to reduce greenhouse gases as the cause of environmental problems. In general, there are four common scenarios to prevent the global warming effect of CO2 in the atmosphere gradually, namely: 1.increasing the efficiency so the fossil fuel consumption decreases, 2.mix of renewable fuels with fossil fuels so that fossil fuel consumption has also decreased, 3.substitution of fossil fuels with renewable fuels 4.and the absorption of CO2 in the atmosphere so that the concentration of greenhouse gases can be reduced. Here are some basic terms related to the above problems. Based on the origin and the effect that CO2 in the atmo…

5 The Largest Wood Pellets Producers Today

References are needed to make something no less quality or even better, as well as for a wood pellet production facility. Indonesia with extensive land available,fertile and tropical climate needs to get complete and qualified reference especially on wood pellet production so that they can optimize its potency. Diversification of energy is also desperately needed by Indonesia so that it has strong resilience and energy sovereignty, especially with its current condition which has become a net importer of petroleum, even projected in the range of approximately 10 years future Indonesia's oil will be exhausted. The following description of the 5 largest wood pellet plant today can be used as a reference.
1.Enviva
Enviva was established in 2004, currently Enviva operates 7 wood pellet plants with total production of more than 3 million tons / year. Some of its wood pellet production is exported to the UK and Europe. A number of ports are used For shipment or export of wood pellet, ie po…
