Arundo donax for electricity in Florida

Florida-based Biomass Investment Group (BIG), is embarking on a project
using Arundo donax as an energy crop that will be grown on 20,000 acres
(8000ha). The biomass will be converted into bio-oil, a heavy fuel oil, via
a fast-pyrolysis process (for more on this process see previous
post<http://thefraserdomain.typepad.com/energy/2005/04/technical_note__1.html>).
This carbon-neutral oil will then be used in a power plant that will provide
electricity to some 80,000 Floridian households.
