Reed canary grass and straw
Vapo is upgrading its energy crop production. Reed canary grass and cereal straw are important energy crops.
There are many factors in favour of using energy crops. Field-cultivated biomass is ecologically beneficial as it is renewable energy that does not increase carbon dioxide emissions.
Producing energy crops introduces diversity and a range of choice into energy options. It secures the availability of energy and increases energy self-sufficiency.
Reed canary grass cultivation and straw collection bring employment and incomes to rural areas. They also diversify the livelihoods of local farmers.
