A Greener Indiana

Everybody can do something to make a greener Indiana

Bio Mass / burning a grass really a concern?

Is burning a manistcas grass a REAL concern? Lot of talk about this is really big in Jasper.

Personally ,I think we should be concerned more about what we put in our water,rivers and streams. I think the 40-50 years of the furniture/woodworking business (Nations Wood Capital) took a toll on our area and now we/they are are turning the heads.

I am a marathon runner, be nice to breathe clean air, but just seems to me this won`t be  " that bad", I am not "bad mouthing" this issue nor trying to be a naysayer, just trying to be fair and trying to be informed.

But......Miscanthus, a potential bioufuel crop, uses more water than corn or soybeans but is better for water quality, reported scientists from the University of Illinois.

A giant perennial grass that tolerates poor soils, uses less acreage and produces more biofuel than either corn or switchgrass - it sounds too good to be true. But researchers at the University of Illinois have demonstrated that the the grass, Miscanthus x giganteus, outperforms current biofuels sources by a long shot.
