Grasdrogen (een energiedienst en meer eiwit van eigen land)

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


A large amount of grass is produced in the Netherlands and is dried using fossil fuels such as coal. The goal of a fossil-free future with energy transition can be realized, while interest in home-grown feed sources in livestock farming is increasing. In this report, the factors affecting quality of grass and losses, energy issues, CO2-footprint and the possibilities of grass drying are discussed at two levels: i) farm scale (decentralised) and ii) regional scale (centralised). Conclusions are drawn about future gras dryers running on green energy.
