Energy Crops

In order to join the fight against climate change, Mattwale Energy Company has been keen to exploit the renewable resources that under its control. In particular, the company has been interested in the landbanks that it can utilise in order to ‘grow energy,’ in form of crops such as willow, elephant grass or reed canary grass.

To help the government meet renewable energy targets, Mattwale Energy Company will be growing crops such as these on many of its landfill sites, wherever it is practical and cost-effective to do so, with the intention of supplying fuels, in the form of pellets, billets (tree stems) or bales, which can then be burnt alongside coal in large power stations.
