Carbon Inventory Egypt

 

Samples were taken from 50 Jatropha bushes destructively during a randomized research trial on 100 ha in Luxor, Upper Egypt, on behalf of the Atmosphere Protect GmbH.  This trial determined for the first time on a scientifically concrete basis the complete upper as well as subsurface biomass of an energy plant established in a desert environment.  These results are of utmost importance to derive economic and ecologic parameters.
