Sustainable Oils, Inc.
Our wholly-owned subsidiary Sustainable Oils, Inc. (SusOils) is the world’s leading developer of camelina. Through our collaborations with academic institutions, private researchers, farmers, and cooperative partners, SusOils supplies scalable quantities of our proprietary, ultra-low carbon camelina feedstock to farmers and contracts with farmers to grow camelina grain that will be processed into oil for use in our Bakersfield Renewable Fuels Refinery. SusOils also sells crushed camelina meal, a byproduct of the refining process, as a high-protein feed for livestock operators.
U.S. Camelina farming operations
Production of camelina grain and certified seed is ongoing in Montana, Colorado, Kansas, Oregon, and Washington. Currently, SusOils sells our certified camelina seed through farmer-owned cooperatives to contract growers.
Camelina Company España
GCEH’s wholly-owned subsidiary Camelina Company España S.L. (CCE), headquartered in Madrid, Spain, is Europe’s largest camelina crop innovator and seed producer.
Ensuring sustainability worldwide
CCE has a sustainable camelina value chain, from breeding and planting seed production to agronomic expansion and camelina processing for advanced biofuel production. In 2013, CCE was the first global company to receive a sustainability certification from the Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials (RSB), a global sustainability standard and certification system for biofuels and biomaterials production. By introducing our proprietary camelina into existing crop rotations without any food displacement – as a catch crop or replacement of traditional fallow periods – CCE optimizes its elite varieties in different cropping systems, primarily in Europe and South America.
