Summary: Updated estimates of camelina cultivation requirements and commercial scale oil recovery and refining were used to calculate life cycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and energy demand for both hydrotreated renewable jet fuel (HRJ) and renewable diesel (green diesel, GD).

Summary: In this research, the components in camelina meal were extracted and studied for their composition, structure, and properties. The potential of using the camelina meal to develop thermoplastics was also studied by grafting various vinyl monomers. Link: http://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/jf300695k

Summary: Oil from the seed of seven Brassicaceae species, Sinapis alba (yellow mustard), Camelina sativa (false flax), Brassica carinata (Ethiopian mustard), B. napus (rapeseed), B. juncea (oriental mustard), B. rapa (field mustard), and S. arvensis (wild mustard), were recovered by cold pressing and filtration without further refining. The physical, chemical, and lubricant properties of the oils were determined. Link: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/ejlt.201200422/abstract

Summary: The high percentage of polyunsaturated fatty acids of camelina oil (over 50%), which is rich in linolenic acid (37–40%) limits its commercial value and large-scale production. To improve the oil quality and its oxidative stability the methyl esters have been selectively hydrogenated using a non-toxic and non-pyrophoric heterogeneous copper catalyst. Our results showed that both catalysts are able to ...

Summary: Possibilities for using straight vegetable oil (SVO) from Camelina sativa (L.) Crantz (camelina or false flax) and its mixtures with Brassica napus (rape) SVO as fuel in adapted diesel engines are described with chemical parameters, measurements in a test engine and a field test in a tractor. The results principally reveal the usability of a cold pressed, non-refined camelina-rape ...

Summary: Transesterification of camelina oil using supercritical methanol with hexane as a cosolvent and subcritical methanol along with potassium hydroxide as a cosolvent/catalyst was investigated to study the methyl ester conversion process. Fuel properties of the biodiesel produced are comparable to those of regular diesel and conform to the ASTM standards. Link: http://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/ef900854h?journalCode=enfuem

Summary: Process parameter evaluation and catalyst performance study was conducted for biodiesel production using Jatropha curcas, waste cooking, and Camelina sativa oil.  Fuel properties of biodiesel produced from the three different feedstocks were determined and compared with the ASTM standards for biodiesel and petroleum diesel.

Summary: In this study, optimization of the transesterification of Camelina sativa oil using different heterogeneous metal oxide catalysts, i.e., BaO, SrO, MgO, and CaO, was evaluated. The important variables affecting the methyl ester yield during the transesterification reaction are the molar ratio of alcohol/oil, catalyst amount, and reaction temperature. The fuel properties of biodiesel produced were compared to American Society ...

Summary: With high seed oil content as well as high yield of oil per hectare, camelina can be efficiently processed into high quality renewable fuels such as biodiesel (fatty acid methyl esters) as well as renewable diesel and jet fuels using existing technologies. This review summarizes the attributes of camelina along with conversion of the lipid fraction into advanced renewable ...
