pp. 93-104
Assessment of the bioenergy potential from crop residues, forest residues, livestock waste, semi-arid areas energy crops, municipal solid waste (MSW) and water hyacinth in Zambia. A total technical bioenergy potential of about 310 PJ per annum has been estimated and using quantum geographical information systems (QGIS) the spatial distribution shown. Of the total, crop residues contributes 64%, forest residues 17%, livestock waste 9%, jatropha cultivation in semi-arid lands 8% and 2% from MSW and water hyacinth together.
