The Cassava root

The new school building

The cassava root originates from South America, where it has been used as food by the indigenous people for many centuries. Today, cassava is cultivated in tropical and subtropical areas all over the world. The cassava plant can grow up to 5 meters. The fibrous side roots thicken to form big, spiral tubers.

Cassava is considered to have a high potential for the production of bioethanol, which is currently mainly produced in China and Thailand. The production cost amount to around 0.27 EUR/l, and the output to around 3.5 to 4 m3/ha.

M-Invest GmbH is co-funding a project in Cambodia, where cassava is used for the production of bioethanol.For more information view
