A field of elephant grass
The plant originates in the Far East; it can grow up to five metres tall and can be burned to generate electricity in biomass power stations, and in smaller boilers to produce heat for individual houses; it is quick growing and yields about 15 tonnes per hectare/year. As the plant grows it draws carbon dioxide out of the air and when burnt it puts the carbon dioxide back, hence the net effect on atmospheric CO2 is zero. The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs is now funding a major breeding programme.
