With all the escalating interest in bio diesel crops, it is remarkable to look at certain byproducts the renewable energy business is producing whilst farming the ethical green oil crops.
For example, the Millettia Pinnata agricultural estates in Queensland, Australia have many assorted byproducts – a number of of which would stun even the most hardened supporter for biofuel crop.
They employ various natural ways to advance their crop incomes and use the know-how of many time in the cultivation industry. They retain a mammoth number of bees on the plantation – as they ecourage the crops to flower for a large amount of the year, removing the former obstacle of seasons, this means the bees have a food resource the entire year round. The plentiful provisions for the bees means they can churn out an exceedingly elevated production of honey, which is harvested and sold as another of the byproducts of the green oil agricultural estates. This approach removes the reliance on buying in bee hives to polinate the crops, and removes various of the problems associated with colony colapse disorder which is harming bee populations all over the world. It is understood that Colony Colapse Disorder is being worsend by the practice of farmers buying in bees temporarily to polinate their flowering crops – this may multiply the coverage of mites and viruses over greater than before distances than the bees should normally cover.
They also supply cattle feed made from the seed pods following processing and the oil has been harvested. This bio-mass is refered to as seed cake and is an extremely worthwhile source of cattle feed. The rest of the bio mass is used to generate bio fertilizer, this is produced from the prunings from the Millettia trees themselves.
An extra exciting and barely unstated byproduct is not tangible at all, but is of considerable significance, as it gives the the plantation farmers with returns above and beyond the yield they farm. It is in the manner of incentive payments from a range of governments. Most countries around the world are setting themselves harder maximums on the levels of carbon that they can be the source of and plantations, such as the one managed by Green Oil Plantations in Quensland, Australia, play an key part for the government in making its target levels. The plantations sequestrate a substantial sum of carbon from the atmosphere and the goverenments in many countries offer cash payments for this service. There are also carbon credit schemes and trading allowed now around the world. This gives the managers proceeds from the plantations above and beyond whatever they can make themselves.
The last main byproduct of the green oil plantations is what is called pasture seed – this can also be used to create cattle feed. The pasture seed is developed around the plants to aid in keeping the water from evaporating from the soil. This pasture seed is collected and distributed to farm managers in the area.
A lot of sources of information concerning the biofuel plantations do not mention these critical byproducts, and I think it should be more commonly understood what some of the fringe benefits are to having these plantations. The plantations are a significant mine of and I think they will be here to stay for many years to come.
Green Oil Plantations are based both in the UK and Australia and are leading the way to deliver secure and sustainable green oil project opportunities for smart and ethical investors. You can benefit from our 10 year project with returns of up to 17% per year or our 5 year project with 80% paid at the end of year 5.
