Bioenergy in Yunnan 云南省的生物能源

Yunnan province in Southwest China is a multicultural, beautiful place and a hotbed of biodiversity. Many rural people rely almost solely on firewood for their energy needs of cooking and heating. Over collection of firewood is the most immediate and significant threat to biodiversity in Northwest Yunnan, because of the amount of deforestation and destruction of habitat that takes place to harvest the wood. The use of biogas digesters and efficient stoves is increasing, however, which is in turn decreasing the need for wood, saving time and labor for rural people.

云南省是中国西南地区的一个多元文化的,美丽的地方。并且,它也是生物多样性的温床。许多农民几乎完全依靠木材的燃烧来为他们提供做饭和取暖所需要能源。过量的砍伐木材是对于云南西北地区生物多样性最显著和最直接的威胁。但是,通过有效烹饪用炉的安装,可以使农民们减少对于木材的使用,这样一来,便节省了他们的劳动力及时间。
