Yield10: Winter, spring camelina harvest produced under grower contracts in 2022-’23 complete

Yield10 Bioscience Inc. announced Oct. 3 that the harvest of a majority of the winter and spring camelina produced under grower contracts in 2022-’23 has been completed.

This harvest marks the establishment of the company’s “Camelina Seed Genetics to Biofuel” platform, as the camelina grain is being delivered to an offtake partner that has crushed the grain and refined the oil into biofuel.

As a result, Yield10 has begun generating revenue from camelina delivery for the production of feedstock oil for sustainable transportation fuels.

Yield10 said it expects the revenue stream from sales of camelina to be a key contributor to the company’s financial profile in the coming years.

“We are extremely pleased to achieve this milestone of generating revenue by commercializing our ‘Camelina Seed Genetics to Biofuel’ platform,” said Oliver Peoples, president and CEO of Yield10 Bioscience. “This was achieved through the commitment and dedication of the Yield10 team working closely with growers as partners. As we have transitioned to the commercialization of camelina, we can now turn our focus to building the technology foundation to accelerate grower adoption of camelina for the biofuels market. We believe that our herbicide-tolerant camelina varieties, currently progressing through development, regulatory review and scale up, will play a vital role in our strategy to grow acreage substantially over time. We remain focused on meeting our future commercialization goals and plan to continue revenue generation and ultimately to fully realize our vision for Yield10.”

One of Yield10’s primary goals for 2023 was to demonstrate the commercial aspects of its value chain, which provides proprietary camelina-seed genetics, includes the signing of grower contracts, and facilitates timely grain offtake for the crushing and refining of camelina into biofuel.

This milestone demonstrates the company’s capabilities to engage growers, build strong commercial relationships, execute logistics, and ultimately drive revenue generation.

Most importantly, it provides the framework for scaling up camelina acreage over time to position camelina as potentially a major source of low carbon-index feedstock oil for the biofuel industry.

Yield10 continues to engage with market participants to secure additional partnerships in the biofuel space.

Yield10 engaged with growers in fall 2022 to plant winter camelina under commercial contract and in spring 2023 to plant spring camelina.

These crops were harvested between July and September.

Feedback from growers has thus far been positive, especially in areas where drought conditions persisted over the season.

In these areas, camelina performed very well in comparison to other crops.

Yield10 is working to secure grower contracts with farmers to plant camelina for harvest in the third quarter of 2024.
