The Rejuvenate project is a desk study carried out by four organisations from the United Kingdom, Sweden the Netherlands and Germany. Its goal is to highlight the potential opportunity for using marginal or degraded land, in particular brownfields and other previously developed or contaminated land, for producing biomass. This biomass could be used for energy, fuel production or as a feedstock. The use of marginal/degraded land may ofer sustainability advantages in regions where it is present in significant amounts and cannot be readily used for built development. In addition, composts and other recycled organic matter may play an important role in the soil improvement and management necessary for the cultivation of these non-food crops.
