Title
Cotton Stalks a useful waste
Authors (non HEDON members)
Ahmed Abasaeed
Abstract
To supply its energy needs, Sudan depends heavily on biomass which in the form of wood and charcoal supplies about 80 percent of the total energy consumed in the country. More than 90 percent of this amount is used to meet households needs, ie cooking fuel. This heavy dependence on biomass has resulted in the depletion of forest reserves, which has led to fast rates of desertification, linear rates estimated at 10-20 km per year. In some parts of the country, desertification is becoming a real threat to people's lives and livelihoods.
