Camelina Industrial Applications -

Evaluation of Camelina sativa oil as a feedstock for biodiesel production – A. Fröhlich and B. Rice – Industrial Crops and Products 2005

Summary: The oilseed crop Camelina sativa (camelina) has lower production costs than oilseed rape in some climates. For this reason, the production of biodiesel-grade methyl ester from camelina oil was evaluated. The evaluation included quality assessment of esters produced in laboratory and pilot plant, an examination of methods of improving ester low-temperature properties, and vehicle trials.
