Abstract:

Biodiesel from bio-energy crops is expected to play an increase role in solving energy crisis. Thus, large-scale cultivation of bio-energy crops causes worldwide attention. Asia is the most populous continent and has a really fast speed of economic growth which causes a massive increase in energy demand. This dataset from the suitability assessment of marginal land resources for cultivating bio-energy crops without affecting food security. A multi-factor analysis method was applied to identify marginal land available for bioenergy development and multiple datasets were used as background including the natural characteristics of bio-energy crops and geographic data. The results indicate that the marginal land resources in Asia are about 16.99 million km2. The validations were conducted in Wuhan Botanical Garden of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and South China Botanical Garden with the accuracy higher than 85%. This dataset provides important support to the large-scale cultivation of energy plants and sustainable development of bioenergy.Browse
