Table 1 Origin and some field characteristics of the rush biomass collected for the different energy conversion experiments

From: The energy potential of soft rush (Juncus effusus L.) in different conversion routes

Location Biomass yield (t ha−1) Amount of harvested material (kg FM) Amount of senescent material (% FM) Conversion experiment Substrate conditioning
Darß 2.0–4.0 ~ 500 5–30 Solid-state fermentation Silage from pure rush biomass
Rendsburg 3.5 ~ 25 ~ 12 Wet fermentation Fresh rush biomass, thawed after freezing
Rostock 2.8 ~ 2.5 ~ 7 Combustion Fresh rush biomass, air-dried
