The Rejuvenate project was initiated by a desk study carried out by four organisations from the United Kingdom (UK), Sweden the Netherlands and Germany. Its goal was to assess the potential opportunity for using marginal 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 aims of the first phase were (i) to explore the feasibility of a range of possible approaches to combine risk based land management (RBLM) with non-food crop land-uses and organic matter re-use as appropriate, (ii) to identify a range of potential opportunities worthy of further development in the UK, Germany and Sweden and in a wider European context, (iii) to assess how verification of their performance might be carried out and (iv) to identify what requirements remain for future research, development and demonstration.
