ABSTRACT
Fifty percent of Czech agricultural lands was categorized to LFA. The energetic crops and raw grass biomass are a perspective industrial and energetic material. It is possible to utilize them by anaerobic digestion for methane, pyrolysis for syngas or fast pyrolysis for biooil, which all find exploitation in co-generation power units (energetic use) or in the chemical industry. They can be used for manufacturing alternative fuel for slow-running diesel engines, in "grass biorefinery", for the production of "green or brown juice" in ethanol production biotechnology, manufacturing of lactic acid, isolation of saccharides, carotenoids and enzymes etc.
