Camelina Research Funded

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Linnaeus Plant Sciences of Saskatoon has received $1.2 million from Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC) to advance production of green alternatives to petroleum oils. The grant will assist research into production of camelina and safflower-based oils as renewable feedstock that can substitute for petroleum in a variety of high-value, non-fuel applications including polymers, lubricants, surfactants and other valuable industrial materials. Linnaeus says the project will deliver two valuable new rotation crops to Canadian farmers.
