Summary: Modified fatty acids (mFA) have diverse uses, e.g., cyclopropane fatty acids (CPA) are feedstocks for producing coatings, lubricants, plastics, and cosmetics. The expression of mFA-producing enzymes in crop and model plants generally results in lower levels of mFA accumulation than in their natural-occurring source plants. To further our understanding of metabolic bottlenecks that limit mFA accumulation, we generated transgenic …

Evaluation of Biodiesel Derived from Camelina sativa Oil – N.U. Soriano Jr. and A. Narani -Journal of the American Oil Chemists’ Society 2012

David Roberts Camelina Industrial Applications Leave a Comment

Summary: Biodiesel derived from camelina as well as other feedstocks including palm, mustard, coconut, sunflower, soybean and canola were prepared via the conventional base-catalyzed transesterification with methanol. Fatty acid profiles and the fuel properties of biodiesel from these different vegetable oils were analyzed and tested in accordance with ASTM D6751.

Stabilisation of camelina oil methyl esters through selective hydrogenation – P. Pecchia, I. Galasso, S. Mapelli, P. Bondioli, F. Zaccheria, N. Ravasio – Industrial Crops and Products 2013

David Roberts Camelina Industrial Applications Leave a Comment

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 …
