Leaf Oil from any plant used as a renewable resource

post-image
Consumers are increasingly demanding our fuels and industrial materials are produced from more sustainable and renewable resources. Plant oils are the most technically suitable, low-cost alternative, but current production systems struggle to keep pace with the projected 50% increase in demand needed just for food use. Folear enables the production of oil in leaves of potentially any plant, rather than just the seeds and fruits of our currently limited array of oil crops. This renewable oil production is needed to meet both this food security challenge and the renewable fuel opportunity. Folear (previously called LeafOil) has been supported by the ON Accelerate program at CSIRO. http://www.oninnovation.com.au/en/ON-teams/ON-Tribe/Accelerate3/LeafOil
