The ScotiaAghelek.1306 Ltd project BOP(Biorefined Oilseed Products) is focused on oil seed rape (OSR) with the objective to develop products tailored to meet functional requirements within different food and non food markets, including renewable bio energy, in the UK & Europe.
The target is to establish a complex Biorefinery in the North East of Scotland strategically located to derive the least cost logistical values associated with farm derived as well as industrial bio chemical supplies as inputs and, routes to markets B2B, direct to downstream product development packaging and distribution, direct to wholesale-retail and as direct resources for the Biorefinery operations (GHP) for cost reductions.
The North East of Scotland as well as selected additional areas within Scotland are considered to be among the finest areas in the European area for the cultivation of oil seed rape varieties. Scotland has a tradition of cultivating OSR as a break rotation crop gaining average yields in excess of 2.5 MT of grain per Ha, generally with excellent oil content.
This project ideology is in pre-feasibility phase at this time while the over all objective is to establish synergy with high potential bio-refinery opportunities in least developed regions.
