Twenty-nine laticiferous taxa of Apocynaceae, Asclepiadaceae, and Sapotaceae were screened for suitability as alternative sources of renewable energy, rubber, and phytochemicals and to select the most promising ones for large-scale cultivation. Of these,Allamanda violacea (14.9% protein, 13.8% polyphenol, 8.6% oil, 3.2% hydrocarbon),Catharanthus roseus (15.4% protein, 10.4% polyphenol, 11.5% oil, 1.9% hydrocarbon), andHolarrhena antidysenterica (14.2% protein, 16.4% polyphenol, 5.4% oil, 4.8… 
POTENTIALITY OF CALOTROPIS PROCERA ON THE YIELD OF BIOCRUDES AND BIOGAS PRODUCTION
The identification of plants rich in hydrocarobons and botanochemicals has gained worldwide interest now-a-days, since they can serve as potential renewable energy resources to alternate fossil

Chemical constituents and energy content of two milkweeds,Asclepias speciosa andA. curassavica
Asclepias speciosa and A. curassavica were evaluated as potential renewable sources of chemicals for use as fuel and/or chemical feedstock. Leaves and stems of both plants were analyzed for
Energy potential of leafy spurge (Euphorbia esula)
TLDR
The immediate potential of leafy spurge whole-plant biomass as a locally grown fuel crop for home-heating purposes is suggested because it can produce 4 times more energy per year than wheat straw.
Xerophytic species evaluated for renewable energy resources
TLDR
The percentages of species yielding substantial amounts of oil and/or polyphenol were considerably higher for the Arizona species than for those 600 species previously analyzed.
