MISCOMAR+ will build knowledge of Miscanthus optimization on MaCL
and on its subsequent conversion options. The practical results will help commercial partners expand their business opportunities moving from TRL 3-4 to TRL 5-8. When Miscanthus hybrids are deployed on the hundreds of thousands of MaCL available in partner countries, MISCOMAR+ will have contributed towards achieving UN Sustainable Development Goals 7 "Affordable and Clean Energy", 10 "Reduced Inequality" and 13 "Climate Action".
Specific expected results are:
- Improved establishment methods for increased resilience under climate change and challenging soil conditions
- Identification and demonstration of economic utilization options for miscanthus biomass from MaCL
- Identification of environmental sustainability indicators under long-term miscanthus cultivation
