Camelina used to build better biofuel

4 agosto 2014

A biochemist is improving biofuels with a promising crop: Camelina sativa. The research may help boost rural economies and provide farmers with a value-added product. «Camelina could give farmers an extra biofuel crop that wouldn’t be competing with food production,» one researcher said. «This research can add value to the local agricultural economy by creating an additional crop that could fit in with the crop rotation.»
