The aircraft flew exactly as we expected - no surprises. The fuel works so well, all I needed to do was fly the plane.

Nearly 12 million barrels a day. That’s how much foreign oil we import in America.
Meanwhile, farm input costs continue to increase.
Sustainable Oils was created to address both challenges. The company develops new crops that produce oil here at home. As ingenious and industrious as our farmers, Sustainable Oils focuses on crops that use less moisture and fewer inputs to give growers the opportunity to produce a profitable crop even on marginal land.
Camelina is just such a crop, a unique oilseed that takes little moisture but is well-suited for biofuel production.
Our commitment to research enables our success and yours. We’ve built North America’s largest camelina research program with field testing locations across the U.S. and Canada to improve camelina yield, oil characteristics and agronomic practices.
Sustainable Oils has also led efforts to build a sustainable camelina industry for growers and end-users. We’ve built a network of growers, seed producers and dealers and established protocols for crop management, seed production and oil processing. We’ve worked with industry partners to build markets for camelina meal and developed partnerships to serve the exciting new aviation biofuels market.
