Multiple uses and growing prospects

The intrinsic qualities of miscanthus allow it to meet many needs: renewable fuels, ecological building materials, litter, horticultural mulches, bio-sourced plastics, insulating materials...

A very high performance litter

Miscanthus is used as litter, especially for poultry, horses and cattle. The spongy core of its stem gives it a very high absorbency: it offers a superior hygiene to conventional litter. Discover here the testimonies of breeders using miscanthus in poultry litter.

Miscanthus: a quality biofuel

Miscanthus is a dry biofuel of regular quality, which secures the supply on the long term. Used in mobile grate boilers, it feeds boiler rooms of all sizes for individual, collective or industrial actors who want to create territory projects with an ecological and local fuel.


An effective horticultural mulch

Very effective against the regrowth of weeds, miscanthus offers the plant excellent protection.
Stable to wind and runoff, it has a strong water retention capacity, which limits its evaporation during hot weather.

Miscanthus decomposes naturally and is a source of minerals. Its very clear aspect favors the aesthetics of beds and plantations.
Finally, its neutral pH allows the soil not to be acidified.

Miscanthus fiber in the feed ration of dairy cows

Miscanthus is also used in dairy cattle rations
Miscanthus is an important source of fiber. Feedback from farmers shows an improvement in rumination, thanks to its scraping power, leading to a decrease in acidosis, a better use of rations and a better general condition of the animal.
