Generating Energy From Grass
Betting on a niche that's still in embryonic state, Sykué Bioenergya, a Brazilian company dedicated to producing energy from biological sources, invested R$140m in a power plant that's fueled by elephant-grass.
Elephant grass is a plant that vaguely resembles sugarcane. The resemblance is not restricted to the visual aspects: elephant grass also possesses relevant potential for producing energy. Sykué Bioenergya, a Brazilian company dedicated to producing energy from biological sources, sees a promising niche in it and is investing R$140m (about US$80m) in a power plant fueled by its dry biomass.
