Miscanthus research gets over $200K in government funding to help the UK meet net zero

Sep 6, 2021

Miscanthus research gets over $200K in government funding to help the UK meet net zero According to Terravesta, success in Phase 1 of the project will enable upscaling to contribute to the recommendation from the Climate Change Committee’s Sixth Carbon budget in Phase 2. To fulfil the need of planting at least 30,000 hectares a year by 2035, so that 700,000 hectares are planted by 2050. “The OMENZ project will pave the way for more perennial bioenergy crops to be planted, by developing the technologies and infrastructure needed,” explains Michael Squance, Terravesta’s science and technology director. “Currently there are around 7,000 hectares of Miscanthus in the UK, and even less short rotation willow coppice and short rotation forestry. We need to ensure more biomass feedstocks are available to meet the growing demand for decarbonisation of agriculture and for the rapidly emerging bio-economy. “Ultimately, there has to be market-ready technology to scale it up successfully and this is what this project will help to enable.” The Biomass Feedstocks Innovation Programme has been launched in 2021 by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), and has now awarded £4-million of funding for the project development stage of the Biomass Feedstocks Innovation Programme, with up to £200,000 of funding per project.
