1 billion gallons of camelina biofuels, $5.5 billion in new revenue, 25,000 jobs by 2025: new report

March 23, 2010 |

camelinaBiomass Advisors, the research division of Biofuels Digest, projected that one billion gallons of Camelina biofuel would be produced for the aviation and biodiesel sectors by 2025, creating 25,000 new jobs; producing over $5.5 billion in new revenues and $3.5 billion in new agricultural income for U.S. and Canadian farmers.

The projections are contained in “Camelina Aviation Biofuels Market Opportunity and Renewable Energy Strategy Report,” released today by the research group.

The report follows recent announcements by Sustainable Oils and Alt-Air among others, to provide 100 million gallons of Camelina-based jet fuel to a consortium of 15 airlines starting in 2014.  Camelina Aviation Biofuels provides an objective, in-depth assessment of Camelina and the market drivers behind aviation industry activity.

“Camelina Aviation Biofuels Market Opportunity and Renewable Energy Strategy Report,” is 116 pages, and includes more than 60 figures, tables and charts, along with regional crop forecast maps for visualizing business opportunities and planning infrastructure needs.

The report is available for a purchase price of $695.  More information, including a free Table of Contents and abstract is available here.

    oilseed production is 2500 to 3000 lbs/acre, it grows well in marginal soils, requires no fertilizer or water, and the organic matter left after pressing the oil seeds is excellent (high in omega 3 fatty acid) livestock feed, or better yet, when combined with abundant cow, pig, or turkey/chicken manure and processed in an anerobic digester produces high quality methane gas which can be burned in a microturbine (like the capstone series 200) to produce both heat and power (electricity) at an efficiency of 75 to 85% (much more efficient than traditional power plants) with the leftover residue from this process being ammonia and potting soil which can be sold comercially or returned to the farm fields as fertilizer. it grows extemely well in cold climates, and when you return to the farmers the biodiesel that can be produced for $1.25 to $1.50/gal, the economics look even more interesting. now lets include the farmers in a co-op which participates in the profits from this process and we can provide a portion of the trillion gallon market our military requires, instead of continuing to export three quarters of a trillion dollars anually to people who don’t like us. wake up america, don’t let BIG OIL’ BIG BANKS’ or their surrogates fool you any longer!! of course this is not the only answer, but it certainly is one of them, and a very viable one at that.
