  • Pennycress for biodiesel can be grown on virtually any type wasteland, unlike most biodiesel feedstocks that require fertile soil.
  • Pennycress can produce enough oil in one acre for over 100 gallons of biodiesel which is nearly double what you get from traditional vegetable oilseeds.
  • Pennycress production absorbs CO2, a harmful greenhouse gas. Pennycress can be grown on idle fields during the winter which does not impact the food supply.
