Hi permies,

I'm interested in this plant as a fuel source. Apparently it can be made into a biofuel, or can be pelletized and burned. And it seems to be much more efficient than corn or sugarcane for biofuel production; further, it doesn't need to compete with food crops since it can be grown on marginal or overused soil (which it then helps to enrich). (Great for windbreaks and erosion prevention, too -- and bedding for horses.)

Does anyone have any guidance on how to use Miscanthus x giganteus as a fuel source on a very small scale -- for one to several families?

Thanks all,
Gava
