Terravesta is the world-leading Miscanthus specialist.

Based in Lincoln, and operating internationally, the company’s mission is to manage global natural resources responsibly, helping to replace the dependence on fossil derived products with a sustainable fast-growing, plant-based alternative – Miscanthus.

Terravesta develops Miscanthus ‘Performance Hybrid’ varieties, works with farmers to grow the crops and develops new markets to replace fossil-derived feedstocks and products.

Miscanthus is increasingly attractive to farmers and in an industry first, farmers considering planting the crop can now benefit from a finance package from Oxbury bank to cover virtually all upfront costs for crop establishment, as well as new direct, long-term offtake agreements with end-users, with 10–15-year index-linked annual returns.

The new opportunity has been launched to help support the growing need to decarbonise the UK economy with bio-based solutions, and the first dedicated, peer-reviewed independent study into the Miscanthus carbon life cycle shows that the crop is net carbon negative, capturing net 0.64 tonnes of carbon (2.35 tonnes CO2e) per hectare, per year in the soil at the very least.

To learn more about the environmental benefits of Miscanthus and how its’ planting can help future proof your business, read Terravesta’s Manifesto, or watch our short video.
