Biofuels market researchers at Biomass Advisors projected that one billion gallons of Camelina biofuel would be produced for the aviation and biodiesel sectors by 2025

This will create 25,000 new jobs - producing over $5.5 billion in new revenues and $3.5 billion in new agricultural income for U.S. and Canadian farmers.
The projections are contained in "Camelina Aviation Biofuels Market Opportunity and Renewable Energy Strategy Report," released by the research group.

The report follows recent announcements by Sustainable Oils and Alt-Air, among others, to provide 100 million gallons of Camelina-based jet fuel to a consortium of 15 airlines starting in 2014. Camelina Aviation Biofuels provides an objective, in-depth assessment of Camelina and the market drivers behind aviation industry activity.

Camelina sativa is a non-food, low-input energy crop that can be grown as a rotation crop in place of summer fallow to generate new farm income. Camelina meal by-product also holds promise as a high-protein animal feed to boost Omega-3 content in meats, dairy, poultry, eggs and pork products. The FDA recently approved Camelina meal as a component of livestock feed rations, and tests have shown measurable increases in Omega-3 meat and dairy content.
