VIASPACE CEO Discusses Giant King Grass at Industrial Biotechnology Congress in China
Date:7/28/2010

said. "While energy is needed continuously, most of the biomass power plants in India run at partial capacity because their agricultural waste fuel supplies are seasonal and not available for parts of the year. In addition many power plants have had to close, because the price of agricultural waste has become too high for profitable operations. The trend in China is the same. Agricultural waste — which was valueless several years ago — is now in great demand and priced accordingly higher.

"In both countries, we believe we can grow Giant King Grass as a reliable and consistent source of biomass feedstock at a price lower than currently paid for agricultural waste," Kukkonen stated. "This is our value proposition and solution for their ongoing supply problems."

Kukkonen said that Giant King Grass is suitable for an increasing number of applications: burning in biomass electric power plants; forming into energy pellets for co-firing with coal in coal-burning electric power plants; and producing bio methane by a process known as anaerobic digestion. Biomethane is used to produce electricity and heat, or it can be upgraded into natural gas for supplying natural gas pipelines. The byproduct of anaerobic digestion of Giant King Grass is organic fertilizer that can be recycled for Giant King Grass cultivation. Giant King Grass can also be used as a feedstock for producing liquid biofuels such as cellulosic ethanol and green gasoline called Grassoline. In addition to alternative energy, other potential opportunities for Giant King Grass biomass were discussed, including the manufacture of important industrial chemicals, bioplastics, paper and textiles.
