Summary "In Australia and most countries, increasing demands for high quality water resources, arable land, food and fossil fuels are greater than the sustainable, economic supply. This report presents research on the perennial, rhizomatous grass, giant reed (Arundo donax) to assess its use: 1. On marginal lands and wastewaters or saline ground waters, to produce lignocellulosic feedstocks (together with other biomass crops) 2. For new second generation biofuels and/or pulp/paper industries for Australia." -- Foreword
