Oil and Protein from Perpetual Trees

Lowest  Carbon Intensity (CI)

Deforestation, the transport sector and agriculture are the largest contributors to carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and thus climate change.

The use of perpetual trees to reforest cattle land to produce oil and protein has a quadruple impact on climate change. 

To produce liquid fuel, you need a device that can turn sunlight into fuel (= photosynthesis)..…well it happens that nature has been providing us that tool forever…  it is called A TREE.

Of all the non-food-land crops that produce vegetable oil and protein, we found the Pongamia tree to be best positioned for reforestation purposes in South America. Together with our genetic partners, we are since continuesly developing our locally adapted elite varieties of the Pongamia tree. 

Carbon Intensity (CI) is the emission rate of a given source relative to the energy intensity generated. The standard indicator of CI is the amount of grams of carbon dioxide released per megajoule (energy) generated.

A 2018 study conducted by MEO Carbon Solutions (ISCC group) showed that Pongamia oil from reforestation activities in South America represents the lowest CI of currently available feedstocks. This is mainly due to the fact that the oil is produced from perpetual elite trees that sequester considerable amounts of carbon from its tree canopy and extended root system. The natural nitrogen fertilization of the soils through the root nodes and no use of pesticides additionally result in very low CI level of the oil.

The best way to refine crude Reforestation Oil into carbon clean fuel is the HVO or “Renewable Diesel” process. 

Hydro-treated Vegetable Oils (HVO) is a fast growing refinery method applied by an increasing number of oil companies in the world. It uses elevated temperatures and pressure to break down larger molecules such as those found in vegetable oils, into shorter hydrocarbon chains used in diesel engines. Renewable Diesel is also called Green Diesel, or hydro-treated vegetable oil (HVO).

Renewable diesel is a “drop-in” fuel that can potentially decarbonize the existing half billion diesel engines in the world without any change to existing infrastructures. 

Renewable Diesel has the same chemical properties as fossil based diesel. Renewable Diesel is a “drop-in” fuel that does not require any, time consuming and expensive, new engines or infrastructure developments.

Who we are

World’s largest reforestation programs 

We conserve virgin forest areas and secure cattle land for our certified reforestation activities to which we match long term offtake agreements with world-wide corporations, oil refineries, and protein processors. 

Our elite tree propagation and research center already represents world’s largest dedicated elite pongamia tree production site. We have built an elite tree propagation reaching a capacity of over one million trees a year. The site of 700 hectares has over 1 km on the Rio Paraguay, one of south America’s most navigated rivers directly bordering Brazil. The site has its own harbor, landing strip and can also be easily visited by road via Brazil.

Our Holding Company is based in Rotterdam in the Netherlands. The port of Rotterdam is Europe’s largest producer of Renewable Diesel and the major biofuel hub for the European market. Crude oil from crushing from our site at the Rio Paraguay can reach all major harbors in the world by only using low cost, low carbon vessel transport.

We provide turn-key reforestation programs to corporation through our sister company Quadriz. To visit the website : Click here
