Modeling the profitability of Camelina Sativa as a biofuel feedstock in eastern Colorado
This study evaluates the economic feasibility of growing Camelina Sativa as a biofuel feedstock on farms in northeastern Colorado. Camelina Sativa is an oilseed feedstock that can be used to generate straight vegetable oil that has the potential to displace a large percentage of the diesel fuel used by farmers. Offsetting significant portions of diesel fuel allows for a hedge against disruptions in the supply of diesel fuel, as well as unexpected diesel fuel price hikes. This helps ensure the continuation of the food system. The specific intention of this study is to evaluate the likelihood ...
