Developments in grass-/forage-based biorefineries

J. McEniy and P. O’ Kiely,    Teagasc (Irish Agriculture and Food Development Authority), Ireland

Abstract:

This chapter provides a brief overview of the potential of grassland biomass as a feedstock for a green biorefinery. It begins by discussing the current role and importance of grasslands in Europe and the impact of grassland management and field-to-industrial facility process steps on herbage chemical composition. The chapter subsequently describes some of the green biorefinery activities ongoing in Europe and outlines the potential products from the press-juice and press-cake fractions of grassland biomass.
