A total of 21% of Europe is covered by grassland. In large parts it is used for fodder or feedstock. However, some grassland areas are not economically viable for this use. In some cases the grass has a low nutritional value, in others the grassland areas are insufficient in size or accessibility. In addition, marginal land could be used to produce even more grass. All this grass has enourmous potential for new biobased businesses. The GO-GRASS project aims to unlock and harness this grass-based biomass potential to create additional business opportunities for farmers and producers in rural areas. By developing and integrating a set of small-scale bio-based technologies and innovative business models across four demonstration sites the project wants to reduce the dependency on fossil fuel and fossil-based products, while simultaneously strenghtening the rural community across Europe. Replicability will be tested in three follower countries.
