First ISCC PLUS Certified Camelina in South America
The first ISCC PLUS certificate for the production of Camelina has been issued for the Argentinian company Chacraservicios. Camelina can be regarded as interesting alternative crop since it can be cultivated on land with less favourable production conditions, where the cultivation of other crops (such as soy or maize) may not be viable. Thus, the camelina production helps to add value to less valuable land.
Camelina oil can be used in the food and feed industry, for chemical applications (e.g. paintings and cosmetics) as well as feedstock for biodiesel and fuel component for aircrafts.
