Giant King Grass and its bioconversion: The Digest’s 2016 Multi Slide Guide to Viaspace

August 18, 2016 |

Direct Combustion, Anaerobic Digestion, Cellulosic Biofuels, Biochemicals, and Animal Feed: these are just some of the markets envisioned for a fast-growing grass known as Giant King Grass.  With composition like corn stover or miscanthus, but 10x the yield of Corn Stover and 3x the yield of Miscanthus per acre, say its adherents. Harvested twice a year at 15+ foot heights, it likes warm weather climates in tropical regions like the Southern U.S., Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, or Guam — it’s also said to grow on marginal land.

Viaspace CEO Carl Kukkonen gave this overview of the crop at ABLC Feedstocks 2016.
