Accelerated plant breeding programs
Accelerated plant breeding programs are ongoing with continuous generation of new varieties with improved features for Biofuel production (i.e. ‘higher oil yields’, ‘higher sugar content’ and also lines with ‘higher hydrocarbon content’).
A proprietary germplasm bank
A proprietary germplasm bank and hybrids are available for testing plant adaptation to specific geographical regions.
Own technologies and knowledge
Own technologies and knowledge to enhance yields of the energy carriers (i.e., 3-fold increase in hydrocarbon yield by means of owned SY21 Technology) have been developed.
Different breeding programs and molecular strategies are in progress aimed at obtaining new E. lathyris varieties with higher yield,
better agronomic performance, and enhanced bioenergy potential.
