Norwegian researchers find perennial grasses can help offset climate change impacts

January 19, 2021 |

In Norway, growing perennial grasses on abandoned cropland has the potential to counteract some of the negative impacts of climate change by switching to more biofuels, according to a Norwegian University of Science and Technology research group.

Researchers consider increased use of biofuels to be an important part of the solution to achieve reduced CO2 emissions. But the production of plants for biofuels can have some unfortunate trade-offs.

Now, researchers at NTNU have come up with a scenario that would put less pressure on food production and plant and animal life.
