Equilibre focuses on land availability close to where electricity is required and where food security is not impacted.
Arundo K12 is a hardy crop and it will grow in incremental land that may not be suitable for food cultivation.
It is disease resistant and can weather droughts due to its rhizomous structure and hydrophobic leave structure that channels water to its roots.
Importantly, Arundo K12 has a very high yield and is able to produce a harvest within the first year of planting, which is a key advantage over the other bio-mass sources.
Because Arundo K12 goes all grows all year round it can be used for base-load electricity generation.
Once planted, Arundo K12 can be harvested up to 14 times before replacement, making it very cost-effective.
