Giant King Grass
Proprietary Giant King Grass is highest yielding biomass crop in the world. Bio-electricity, biogas, biofuels, biochemicals, bio plastics, and biomaterials all need biomass as feedstock, and Giant King Grass is suitable for these applications. Because of its high yield, it is a low-cost feedstock. Equally important, Giant King Grass provides the reliable and well-characterized feedstock that is required by banks and investors in order to provide financing for these bioenergy projects. Giant King Grass is a natural plant, and is not genetically modified and not an invasive species.
