ABSTRACT Camelina (Camelina sativa) can be used to make biodiesel or biojet fuel. This study compares life-cycle energy, environmental impact and economic performance of making biodiesel versus biojet fuel from camelina oil. The data for camelina field production was obtained from a grower in western Washington, USA. Camelina seeds were crushed, and biodiesel and biojet fuel were produced at the University of Idaho's advanced biofuel research lab. Biodiesel was made via a transesterification… 
Energy indicators for microwave-assisted biodiesel production from waste fish oil
ABSTRACT Biodiesel is produced from renewable sources such as vegetable oils and animal fats as a fuel for replacing fossil fuels in diesel engines. Energy efficiency and energy intensity in
Break‐even price and carbon emissions of carinata‐based sustainable aviation fuel production in the Southeastern United States
The production of biomass‐based sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) is gaining traction to reduce the carbon footprint of the aviation sector. We performed a techno‐economic analysis to estimate the
Selenastrum Capricornutum a New Strain of Algae for Biodiesel Production
The increasing global demand for biofuels for energy security and to reduce the effects of climate change has created an opportunity to explore new sources of biomass, of which, microalgae is the
Synthesis of Camelina Oil Ethyl Esters As Components of Jet Fuels
Unrefined Camelina oil was transesterified on an alkaline catalyst with the application of commercial fuel ethanol of high hygroscopicity. It was shown that the rise of moisture content in alcohol up
Mechanical Harvesting of Camelina: Work Productivity, Costs and Seed Loss Evaluation
Camelina is a low input crop than can be cultivated in rotation with cereals to provide vegetable oil suitable for bioenergy production, industrial applications and even as source of food for
Adaptation of Camelina sativa (L.) Crantz in Assam, India: agronomic, physiological and biochemical aspects of a potential biofuel feedstock
Abstract Camelina sativa (L.) Crantz (family Brassicaceae) or false flax, a new oilseed plant for biodiesel and jet fuel production, has been cultivated for centuries in the temperate climate belt of
Herbaceous Oil Crops, a Review on Mechanical Harvesting State of the Art
The sustainable production of renewable energy is a key topic on the European community’s agenda in the next decades. The use of residuals from agriculture could not be enough to meet the growing


Life cycle analysis and production potential of camelina biodiesel in the Pacific Northwest.
Camelina sativa could be a potential feedstock to help meet the U.S. biodiesel production goal of 36 billion gallons by 2022, as set forth by Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007. This
Camelina‐derived jet fuel and diesel: Sustainable advanced biofuels
Recently, an isoparaffin‐rich jet fuel derived from camelina, a low‐input nonfood oilseed crop, was flight‐tested by a commercial airline. To date, all test results indicate that this hydrotreated
Reassessment of Life Cycle Greenhouse Gas Emissions for Soybean Biodiesel
This study updates the life cycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for soybean biodiesel with revised system boundaries and the inclusion of indirect land use change using the most current set of
Quantifying variability in life cycle greenhouse gas inventories of alternative middle distillate transportation fuels.
The results of this research demonstrate that subjective choices such as coproduct usage and allocation methodology can be more important sources of variability in the LC-GHG inventory of a fuel option than the process and energy use of fuel production.
A full fuel-cycle analysis of energy and emissions impacts of transportation fuels produced from natural gas
Because of its abundance and because it offers significant energy and evironmental advantages, natural gas has been promoted for use in motor vehicles. A number of transportation fuels are produced
Reaction pathways for the deoxygenation of vegetable oils and related model compounds.
It is shown that the type of catalyst has a significant effect on the deoxygenation pathway, that is, group 10 metal catalysts are active in decarbonylation/decarboxylation whereas metal sulfide catalyststs are more selective to hydrode oxygengenation.
Deactivation in Continuous Deoxygenation of C18-Fatty Feedstock over Pd/Sibunit
Catalytic continuous deoxygenation of stearic acid, ethyl stearate and tristearin without any solvents was investigated using Pd/Sibunit as a catalyst in a trickle bed reactor at 300 °C. The main
