Global Clean Energy Holdings, Inc., incorporated on, July 13, 2010, is engaged in energy agri-business focused on the development of ultra-low carbon non-food based feedstocks for renewable fuels and chemicals in the United States, Mexico and the Caribbean. The Company's principal business activities include the plant science, planting, cultivation, harvesting and processing of non-food based plants to generate seed oils and biomass for use in the biofuels industry, including the production of ultra-low carbon renewable-jet, biodiesel, renewable diesel and renewable chemicals. The Company has in-house development and operations capabilities that supports its own biofuel energy farms and provides advisory services to third parties.
The Company is focused on the commercialization of non-food based oilseed plants and biomass. It is engaged in the development of farms growing Jatropha curcas (Jatropha), which is a non-edible plant indigenous to various tropical and sub-tropical regions of the world, including Mexico, the Caribbean and Central America, and the cultivation of Camelina sativa (Camelina), which is an annual plant from the brassica family grown in northerly regions of the United States, Europe and Asia. Both Jatropha and Camelina oil are plant oils used as direct substitutes for fossil fuels and as feedstock for the production of ultra-low carbon biofuels and other bio-based products. Both Jatropha and Camelina oil can also be used as a chemical feedstock to replace fossil and non-food based products that use edible oils in their manufacturing or production process.
The residual material derived from the oil extraction process is called press-cake, which in the case of Jatropha is a biomass that has been tested as a replacement for a number of fossil-based feedstocks, fossil fuels and other products, such as renewable charcoal, fertilizers and animal feed. Camelina press-cake or meal is in Omega3 fatty acids. It provides advisory services to farmers wishing to certify their farms under international sustainability or carbon certification standards. The Company operates approximately two Jatropha farms in the Caribbean on leased land, which are used as a research farm and certified seed nursery.
