Spring Camelina sativa – Perspective cultivation as biofuel feedstock in Slovakia - Radoslav Bujnovský, Mária Holíčková, Petra Ondrejíčková – Industrial Crops and Products 2020

The primary aim of the paper was to examine the possibilities of sustainable conventional and temporary intensification of prospective camelina cultivation as a biofuel raw material. Within conventional intensification, greenhouse gas emissions from its intended cultivation were compared with real emissions from oilseed rape cultivation. Almost all of assumed camelina yields and nutrient rates combinations achieved lower total emissions compared with oilseed rape. This was mainly due to lower emissions from fertilizers. It can be concluded, that camelina could be suitable raw material for biofuel production.
