With flying cameras and three-dimensional nuclear spin imaging Ulrich Schurr is studying the growth of energy crops. Rapeseed, sugar beets, China grass - these are plants which can be easily processed to give fuel and raw materials for the chemical industry. But how well, how fast and how uniformly will these plants grow in a northern German climate? The plant scientist from the Jlich Research Center is convinced that energy crops will play a big role in the future - as long as their cultivation does not compete with food crop production. To what extent that is possible - that is being investigated by a newly founded research center: the Bioeconomy Science Center.
