This publication provides a description of the status of bioenergy (Use of biomass feedstock from agriculture, forest & waste for uses in transport, heat & electricity) in several countries of Latin America. This Report has been edited by the JRC IET Renewables & Energy Efficiency Unit in cooperation with the Agricultural Research Institute (INTA) of Argentina. This publication is partly based on the experience of EUROCLIMA Project and on technical contacts developed through the JRC participation at the IEA (International Energy Agency) Bioenergy Task 43 on Biomass feedstock for energy use. This Report includes papers on bioenergy status & perspectives from institutions from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico, or from other international players such as IEA, FAO, INAAS & CEA France. Special attention is paid to the status of bioenergy in Brazil & Argentina, but also in other Latin American countries with different resource availability & policy drivers and to the agro-environmental assessment of bioenergy.
