Terravesta, the Miscanthus specialist, has appointed Florian Ilias as its new managing director with responsibility for growing new market opportunities and operations.

Mr Ilias will continue to advance the Miscanthus bioeconomy, growing opportunities in the UK and Europe allowing for more Miscanthus planting to meet increasing demand.

With extensive experience in managing successful businesses in Europe, Mr Ilias’ fluency in English, German, French and Italian will help the company to open up new opportunities across the continent.

Alex Robinson, operations director for Terravesta, said: “The appointment will bolster Miscanthus markets and pave the way for innovations that are being successfully trialed, such as sustainable construction materials, clean energy, land remediation, and biorefining.”

Mr Ilias maintained that Miscanthus will become a major part of the energy mix, as well as being a viable alternative to fossil-fuel-derived products, and it will contribute to mitigating climate change on a global scale. He said: “Terravesta is a pioneering British company with unflinching drive and vision and is paving the way for the sustainable bioeconomy. Terravesta’s vision and practical approach to a sustainable future are driving exciting new opportunities.”

“My job is to understand where we can achieve results and harness those opportunities. I’m enthusiastic about the team at Terravesta because they’re inspiring and they all believe in what they are doing.”
