Maize for biogas plants offers highest space efficiency (DE)


In comparison to alternative energy crops, maize offers the highest yields of methane for the use for biogas production. Arno Zürcher from LTZ Augustenberg presented this conclusion at the biogas meeting of the Deutschen Maiskommitees (DMK, German Maize Committee). In his presentation, entiled “Energy corps and its alternatives”, Arno Zürcher showed the results, which come from tests at LTZ Augustenberg with different cultivars for biomass utilisation. These showed a.o. that the yields of methane of Sorghum were only 10 to 15 % lower than the yields of silage maize.
