Expanding on the 1Malaysia Biomass Alternative Strategy (1MBAS)
Commercially viable underutilised biomass species in association with oil palm underpinned by scientific understanding of canopy scale processes operating in diversified vegetation systems.
BiomassPlus links CFFRC with partners in Malaysia and beyond. Initial programme opportunities will focus on objective selection of candidate species, the development, experimental use and analysis of the CFFRC field site as a base for intensive study and extrapolation to other locations and environments. Research will span agronomic, ecophysiological and environmental studies at the canopy and field scale, processing and energy values of plant products, economic and operational analysis of the chain from production to end use and the integration of selected species within the oil palm production system.
Completed applications should be submitted by Friday 1 June 2012 to:
