Arundo-K12 is a clone selected from the variety Arundo D, which differs mainly from any other variety because it is considered genetically stable and free from any type of virus.
Arundo-K12 is catalogued as a second-generation energy crop. Plant variety of non-food use, used to produce lignocellulosic biomass specifically aimed at obtaining bioenergy.
Today Arundo-K12 is promoted as one of the most productive, versatile and profitable energy crops for the bioenergy industry.
Low costs of harvest per ton
Hight production per hectare
Three generations working with Arundo
Arundo-K12 has a long time of life, more than 20 years
This is the minimum water m³ that Arundo need to be effective
This are the correct number of plants per hectare at the time of planting
This is the medium number of canes in a correct plantation in the second year of life
For its versatility, as it is useful for a large variety of applications and energy models, its main uses being currently focused on the bioenergy, paper and biocorrector sectors. Within the energy section, outstanding are the uses of solid biomass for thermal models, green biomass for biogas (digestion by anaerobic fermentation) and the use for the production of second-generation biofuels. Another of its great hallmarks is undoubtedly its resistance and natural adaptability to any environment and climate condition, thereby conferring a unique versatility. Another point where ARUNDO-K12 stands out is in the biomass yields, as these are superior to those of any variety.
WHAT IS YOUR ENERGY NEED?
The biomass harvested is of lignocellulose nature, and that is the reason why its energy use is currently aimed at thermal applications (solid biofuel) and biogas (anaerobic fermentation) either for heating or to generate electricity. Crop management (specially the fertilisation dose and the way of harvesting) and the growth rate of the plants (proportion of stalk against leafs) influence the composition of the biomass harvested and therefore, the calorific value.
MORE THAN ENERGY CROP
Due to the energy requirements demanded both by society and by a modern and environmentally-committed industry, Biothek Ecologic Fuel promotes the ARUNDO-K12 clone with the aim of covering the current bioenergy and industrial requirements while preserving its ethical and moral commitment.
