The field of energy production is uncertain as we do not really know when fossil fuels reserves for gas, coal or oil will be depleted. Therefore, it is important to search for alternative ways to produce energy as the sustainability of every nation depends on it.

The term agroenergy was coined at the end of 1970’s and is used to refer to the science that studies the cultivation of plants intended to be used for producing energy as well as the necessary technology to transform organic matter (i.e. biomass) into fuel.
