ADM, one of the leading agricultural companies, has recently announced a memorandum of understanding with Syngenta Group, an agricultural technology company. This partnership aims to address the rising demand for biofuels by combining their research capabilities.
The primary objective of this collaboration is to expedite the research, processing, and commercialization of new low-carbon-intensity oilseeds. Specifically, they will focus on crops like Camelina, which are typically grown during the fallow period of a crop rotation. Through this initiative, ADM plans to leverage its unique expertise and streamline the processing of cover crops, which they have already successfully piloted.
In addition to this joint effort, ADM and Syngenta Group also envision establishing partnerships with other companies. By fostering collaboration on a broader scale, they aim to maximize the impact of their research and technological advancements in the field of biofuels.
The definitive agreements for this partnership are expected to be signed by the end of the year. Both companies are already making significant progress in growing and processing next-generation varieties. This collaborative approach paves the way for innovative solutions that will contribute to a more sustainable future.
