An interesting topic on Dutch State TV (min 20.27) https://www.npostart.nl/AT_300002996 concluding the interesting potential of Miscanthus as a so called Super Climate Plant. One example showing 70 Ha’s currently farmed at the runway sides of Schiphol Airport Amsterdam. Apart from Miscanthus being a natural barrier to geese in both summer and winter (either 3 Mtr of height and very dense or sharp remainder of material once harvested), the Super Climate Plant produces (> 20 years long, on poor soil, low maintenance, no fertilisation or weed control) biomass material for energy, bedding, construction, bioplastics or paper industry purposes. With high CO2 capture potential the TV programme shows a successful Infra construction Green Silence Wall produced by Strukton (Top 5 Infra companies in NL) , where Econcreed jointly developed and supplied the biomass additive to be able to process interesting volumes of Miscanthus biomass into a cement mix.
Securing long term fossilisation and CO2 capturing. Resulting in light weight prefab construction material, net CO2 footprint per m3 of biobased concrete and a sustainable and additional income farming model. source: NPO
