We produce Miscanthus Giganteus, a sterile triploid hybrid, that can be grown to generate renewable power, in-terms of renewable electricity, renewable heat and renewable transport fuel. Miscanthus can also be used for a range of non-energy end uses such as game cover, animal bedding and bio-composites, all of which can contribute to carbon sequestration to help mitigate climate change. It also fits neatly with 2015 Cross Compliance requirements. sustainability objectives and has a benign environmental profile when farmed responsibly.
We supply a range of Miscanthus related products from fresh rhizomes to Miscanthus Bales, chipped Miscanthus cane, processed fuel pellets, and briquettes to end-users. We continue to expect to see the emergence of torrified pellets soon, which will make storage easier and carry a much higher calorific value. Biochar is another area where crops like Miscanthus offer clear advantages of homogeneity over mixed biomass and conventional charcoals, and many British Universities are leading the way with scientific development and research in Biochars.
We provide a range of comprehensive services from rhizome planting and crop establishment, including agronomy advice and harvesting services, to grant advice, application and project research and development consultancy. We also offer growers through our Associates, a range of Buy Back Contracts for their Miscanthus cane to consolidate supply to our end-users.
