Agricultural Biomass for Energy Crops Series: Miscanthus

Bioenergy Europe's third video of a series of four dedicated to #bioenergy feedstock coming from #agriculture, both perennial energy crops and agricultural residues. In this video we focus on the potential of miscanthus as a perennial dedicated energy crop. Thanks to this crop's unique characteristics, miscanthus can be grown on degraded land and can mitigate soil erosion. These environmental benefits, and the little maintenance required (no fertilizers needed and harvest once a year) makes of miscanthus a fascinating crop deserving more attention and investment. About agrobiomass: With around 20% of the bioenergy feedstock coming from agriculture, both dedicated energy crops and agricultural residues can be utilised to produce #heat, #electricity and #biofuels. Agricultural #biomass represents an important and sustainable energy source although its potential remains largely untapped. Agricultural biomass is key to achieve Europe’s long-term decarbonisation objectives.
