Nuseed to Supply Carinata for Top European Biodiesel Producer

Cindy Zimmerman

Nuseed Limited has a new agreement with the largest biodiesel producer in Europe to supply Nuseed Carinata as a feedstock for certified low carbon oil for renewable fuels and high protein non-GMO meal for livestock feed.

Nuseed, a subsidiary of Nufarm Limited, made the multi-year agreement with Saipol in France because the Nuseed Carinata production system was found to achieve best in class greenhouse gas reduction (GHG), certified by the leading independent globally recognized Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials (RSB).

Brent Javra, Nuseed Global Commercial GM, said, “Nuseed Carinata provides excellent opportunity for farmers and processors to participate in the global climate change effort through reduced GHG emissions in agriculture and transportation.”

Saipol is a European leader in oilseed processing that develops markets for edible vegetable oils and derivatives, protein-rich meals, and low carbon renewable fuels.

Nuseed plans to significantly scale-up production of carinata grain in Argentina over coming seasons, with longer term plans to develop the crop in additional South American markets and other parts of the world.
