Grace (project)

The GRACE project demonstrates large-scale miscanthus and hemp production on land with low productivity, with contaminated soil or soil that has been abandoned. The aim is to ensure the supply of raw materials for the European bioeconomy.

MiscanthusMiscanthus is a perennial C4 grass originating from South-East Asia. It is a very resource-efficient crop which, after a two-year establishment period, can yield up to 25 tonnes of dry matter a year in Central Europe. It can be harvested annually over a cultivation period of up to twenty years. The application of herbicides is only necessary during the establishment phase. Its biomass can be used for a wide range of utilization pathways including combustion, conversion to bioethanol, production of building materials and of basic chemicals.

HempHemp is a crop that provides raw material for industrial applications. Example applications are: bast fibre (pulp and paper; insulation materials, composites for the automotive industry), shives (animal bedding, building materials), seeds (feed, oil, specialty foods, cosmetics), leaves and inflorescence (pharmaceuticals).
