The Department of Energy is proposing to provide federal funding to the Sartec Corporation (SarTec) to facilitate the production and harvest of 2,500 acres of pennycress and camelina mustard seed plants and processing biofuel from oil pressed from plant seeds. Non-oil pressing residues would be used as fuel or feed. This renewable energy research would be conducted at farms selected by the principle investigator (PI).
