Marjestica

Marjestica is a species of tree that has resulted from applying the Tree Adaption Process (polyploidisation) from the mother stock of Paulownia, thus increasing its annual growth rate by up to 28-40%. Clenergen has signed an exclusive license to the polyploidy technology for the cultivation of the species in India and Sri Lanka. The tree will grow to 28 feet high within the first year from planting and can be mechanically pruned harvested on an annual basis. Marjestica has a low water requirement and is ideally suited as an energy crop as it develops multiple stems after the first harvest. Majestica has the potential of yielding in excess of 40 tonnes on average per acre per annum over an 8 year period before replanting. Its low moisture content results in a highly efficient renewable biomass feedstock for gasification power plants.
