Sustainable ILUC feedstock grown in fallow land in Europe

Camelina crop is a oil crop feedstock that can be cultivated in marginal or fallow land in arid dry land regions. It has already been employed by the biofuel (road transportation) and bio-jet fuel (aeroplane) industry. It is cost competitive with current low ILUC feedstock employed for biofuel production. It does not compete on land with food production. It achieves GHG emission reductions of over 60%. It implies a no LUC and low ILUC impact.

The need

Feedstock for biofuel production needs to comply with strict environmental requirements and economic and social concerns.

The solution

Camelina crop is a oil crop feedstock that can be cultivated in marginal or fallow land in arid dry land regions. It achieves greenhouse gas emission reductions of over 60%, does not compete on land with food production and has already been employed by the biofuel (road transportation) and bio-jet fuel (aeroplane) industry. It implies no land use change (LUC) and has a low indirect land use change (ILUC) impact. It is cost competitive with feedstock employed for biofuel production.

The value proposition

• Can be cultivated in marginal or fallow land in arid dry land regions.
• Full service, with combined sales of the seeds and guaranteed off-take agreement, reducing risk for farmers.
