Camelina Industrial Applications -

Use of straight vegetable oil mixtures of rape and camelina as on farm fuels in agriculture – H.M. Paulsen, V. Wichmann, U. Schuemann, and B. Richter – Biomass & Bioenergy 2011

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 SVO mixture in adapted diesel engines.
