Camelina Company España opens new innovation center

October 3, 2022 |

In Spain, Camelina Company España, Europe’s largest camelina crop innovator and seed producer, held the opening of its new innovation center in Daimiel, Spain last week. Camelina is grown for use by Camelina Company’s parent company Global Clean Energy to produce ultra-low carbon renewable fuels. Renewable diesel produced from camelina is a drop-in replacement for traditional diesel, but with fewer contaminants and far less emissions.

The new 420 m2 (5420 sq ft) Innovation Center will allow Camelina Company to significantly expand their research and development while enhancing their presence in one of the best performing camelina regions in Spain. Since the company began camelina production in Daimiel in 2014, farmers have increasingly adopted camelina cultivation, doubling yields to achieve over 2.500 kg/ha, thanks to strategic breeding and improved farmers’ practices.
