Mendel's BioEnergy Seeds and Feedstocks business, in collaboration with BP, is currently developing elite, proprietary varieties of Miscanthus Giganteus which will increase the energy grass's viability and importance as the key component of a global sustainable energy revolution.
Gutterson says, "Miscanthus is a great product in field, but is hard to establish though spectacular once established.
Establishing it through tissue culture or rhizomes is difficult so we need to change to a seeded system.
We are now on track for seed product to be available in 2014."
It's predicted that the seeded product will drive adoption of Miscanthus Giganteus up to 250,000 acres in the US alone by 2016.
Ultimately, Gutterson predicts there will be a world trade in biomass developing, rather than nation-by-nation.
