Global Clean Energy Holdings buys Camelina Company España

In California, Global Clean Energy Holdings has acquired Camelina Company España S.L. (CCE), Europe’s largest camelina crop innovator and seed producer headquartered in Madrid, Spain. CCE has received international acclaim for more than 10 years by developing world class intellectual property (IP) in camelina to support a sustainable biofuels value chain. CCE’s IP includes superior genetics, breeding capabilities, high quality planting seed, advanced agronomic research, and knowledge to support the cultivation of camelina by contract farmers. CCE, together with Sustainable Oils, Inc. (SusOils), also a wholly owned subsidiary of GCE, will further enhance the company’s portfolio of patented camelina genetics. CCE and SusOils have been collaborating for some time to expand and harmonize their collective research and development activities. The combined capabilities will accelerate the development of proprietary germplasm and varieties of camelina that will provide third-party contract camelinagrowers in North America, Western Europe and South America with additional revenue opportunities by sustainably increasing their fallow crop rotation options.
