the future fuel
Over the past decade, worldwide production and distribution of plant oilseeds and their products have undergone remarkable expansion; the area devoted to growing oilseeds has expanded by 19%, while production has increased by 34% since 2005. The plant oil market is driven by the demand for higher yield and more sustainable production of the main crops (jatropha, palm, soybean, rapeseed and sunflower), but also by the need for increased crop diversification. This increased demand will require oilseed crops to be adapted to more diversified markets, in particular to provide sources of novel feedstock sources for the petroleum-based chemical industry.
Camelina has emerged in the last decade as a multipurpose crop plant particularly suitable for engineering new lipids for diverse uses, including feed, biofuel and green chemistry. The rebirth of this ancient crop was based on several intrinsic favorable characteristics: robust agronomic qualities, attractive oil profile, genetic proximity with the model plant arabidopsis. The need to increase both the production and diversity of plant oils, while improving the sustainability of agricultural systems, has been the driving forces behind the ever-increasing investment in camelina
Over the past decade, there has been a remarkable increase in scientific interest in camelina, as driven by several quite different potential end uses. The high levels of omega-3 lipids in camelina oil are perceived as beneficial for human health and the high levels of tocopherols, including vitamin E, make camelina oil more stable to oxidation than other high omega- 3 oils such as linseed oil. A further attractive feature is that the residual meal after pressing can be used for animal feed. In addition to current food uses, there are several micro-niches for camelina oil in cosmetics, soaps, lubricants,etc. Nevertheless, the intense interest regarding camelina has been driven primarily by camelina oil’s potential as a low input source of biofuel with a particularly favorable greenhouse-gas lifecycle assessment
Camelina and its oil
The increased interest in camelina oil occurred in parallel with increased interest in the crop because of its fundamental agronomic characteristics. Often cited as well adapted to growing on marginal soils, in fact camelina is remarkable adapted to a wide range of temperate climatic conditions, growing well in the semi-arid and also in the distinctly humid environment of Ireland. It has been described as a low-input crop, requiring little or no fertilization, and since it appears at present to be resistant to many pests and pathogens that affect other Brassicaceae neither insecticides nor fungicides are routinely used on camelina
Furthermore, the camelina life cycle is quite short; if planted in the spring, it can be harvested approximately three months later. Although spring-sown camelina is more widely grown, cultivars adapted to sowing in the fall to be harvested in the spring have also been developed).
Camelina’s short lifecycle opens particularly interesting possibilities for double cropping. These potential double-cropping systems are of great economic interest, but should also have a positive impact on protecting soils from erosion and increasing

CAMELINA BIODIESEL BUSINESS PLAN:
ABC’s Professional Business Plan Service
A feasibility study and a business plan are essential steps in developing a successful biodiesel business. However it is not easy to prepare an excellent business plan.
Advanced Biofuel Center has been working in the field of nonfood oil crops promotion for biodiesel production and become a pioneer of Biodiesel Crop Plantation & Production. ABC’s research findings and on-hand field experiences in respect of various technical, agronomical/silvicultural aspects of plantations of Jatropha and other nonfood biodiesel crops in various categories of land as well under different plantation models have resulted in significant improvements in knowledge and technical background related to Productivity, profitability and sustainability of commercial production of nonfood biodiesel Crops. Based on our proprietary knowledge and extensive experience gained we have developed Based on our proprietary knowledge and extensive experience gained we have developed and enhanced a wide range of Products for creating a “FALESAFE FUEL FARM”
With its extensive experiences in the field, enhanced technology, plant science & professional knowledge, effective consulting service and business intelligence ABC can clearly understand the business model, products and services, production, marketing and provides all aspects of feasibility analysis and business development including assessments of the following: crop production, crushing, co-product markets, feedstock acquisition and contracting, technology analysis, risk analysis specific to biodiesel technology, feedstock, markets, and general project risks, market and financial analysis.
We make the integration of our experience and professional knowledge with your information. We provide in depth analysis of crop cultivation and crop care part of plan for which we have team of agronomist and plant scientists, and then we have engineers and experts in biodiesel industries to finish the technology and production part of business plan. We have professionals in accounting to complete financial and economics part. ABC can offer the type of consulting that only numerous years of leadership in the biodiesel market can provide at an affordable price.
ABC can help clients identify the needs, opportunities and solutions of their local, regional and national markets. By identifying these needs and providing management direction, ABC can help in creating a perfect business plan in order to develop and manage an effective and successful biodiesel facility.
