As a legacy of the SUCRE Project, in addition to the documents summarizing results obtained over five years, there will be two tools available at the LNBR website for all interested parties. One of them is the map of the areas suitable and unsuitable for straw collection, considering aspects of soil conservation and maintenance of productivity. The other tool will be a calculator which will estimate the economic viability of using straw for bioelectricity generation. Both are intended to be exploratory platforms, as a first step to evaluate the viability of new enterprises for the collection and use of straw for electricity generation.
