Abstract

The growing concerns over fossil fuel depletion, energy crisis and climate change have raised the interest of scientists for bioenergy production on marginalised lands. Cultivating bioenergy crops on marginalised lands is regarded as alternative source of cultivating energy as it utilises the marginal land for growing such biomass that can be used for bioenergy production. It is economical scaledup process that contributes in not only mitigating energy crisis, but also helps in reclaiming marginalised lands. Bioenergy crops have wide prospective in contributing to a major portion of world's energy needs while reducing the rate of emission of atmospheric carbon dioxide. Production of bioenergy crop on marginal land is clean, simple, environment friendly and economic way of combating a series of environmental problems. Government needs to provide subsidy and incentives to promote bioenergy production on marginalised lands so that it reaches the longterm vision of achieving sustainable development goals.
