Napiergrass is one of highest yielding crops in tropical countries that can be used for pulp and bioenergy. A logistic system optimization is required in several environments. Its tall stalks and low leaves/stalk ratios (below 40%) allow high process efficiency for both pulp and energy uses and also a low biomass production cost.
Combining renewable technologies such as wind or solar with biomass sources could boost renewable energies implementation in many areas.
