Dec 11, 2014 - Ecuador's institute of pre-investment studies INP will present a bioenergy map of the country in early 2015 following a basic study about the energy potential of biomass waste in the local agriculture, the entity said Wednesday.
The study was intended to evaluate the resource and produce maps of the types of agriculture waste, as well as to propose models for collection and storage, INP's executive director, Santiago Medina, said during a discussion on Tuesday. The results will be useful for electricity projects and industrial purposes.
INP has awarded the study to Argentine consultancy ESIN Consultora for nearly USD 276,000 (EUR 222,000), with financing from the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).
