Technical Usages


From time immemorial man has used plants and their parts not only for food and feed, but as a source of energy, too.

Triticale is a man-made cereal, especially created for replacing rye in animal feeding. But if a cereal plant may be used for technical purposes as well, without any doubts not the slightest ethical reservations are justified for triticale, since it never has been a traditional food cereal plant.

Thanks to the diversity of genes joint together in triticale, a greater diversity in the contents is feasable for the usage for different technical purposes:

Ethanol Production

Excellent results and experiences with triticale exist: See: Ethanol Production

Bio Gas

The chances that winter cereal plants might be of importance in bio gas production, is the advantage of early availability of bio mass. Some interim results indicate that certain types of triticale might be better suited than other cereal species. Some more details can be found under Bio Gas .

Thermal Usage

Triticale – thanks to the fact that it is not a traditional food plant – is quite suitable for Heating .

Conclusions

The great diversity which triticale possesses thanks to the great variety of genes inherited from its parents, allows the conclusion that more new usages might be found for triticale than for other plants. Some more you find under Future .
