North Carolina State University - Jet Fuel from Camelina Sativa: A Systems Approach
CX(s) Applied: B3.6
Location(s): North Carolina
Offices(s): Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy
Funding will support development of genetically modified (GM) camelina that produces more oil than natural camelina and produces terpenes in the valves and seed coats of the plant. Funding will also support development of catalysts for transforming the oil and terpenes produced by GM camelina into jet fuel.
