The Rising Demand for Biofuel
Biofuel use is being mandated as a sustainable petroleum replacement around the world:
A sustainable and economically competitive supply of energy feedstock crop is required to meet this demand – this is the driving force behind the development of Agrisoma Carinata.
The Optimal Energy Source
Developed from Brassica carinata, Agrisoma Carinata delivers outstanding yields, high oil content and a tailored biofuel oil profile. This crop is uniquely suited to semi-arid conditions, enabling the widespread production of energy feedstock without the displacement of food crops.
Delivering Benefits Across the Value Chain
For growers, Agrisoma Carinata is a vigorous, competitive crop uniquely suited to semi-arid crop production that delivers high yields and utilizes established Brassica spp. (napus, juncea) infrastructure.
For biofuel manufacturers, Agrisoma Carinata provides a lower cost, uniform, long chain mono-unsaturated fatty acid profile that enables additional efficiencies and returns from biofuel manufacturing processes
Agrisoma Carinata will set a new standard for energy feedstock crops, creating a step-change in economics for growers and biofuel manufacturers.
