OHY uses primarily three products for producing the high yield bio-energy and food oil.
Camellia – a high yield bio-energy and food oil crop suitable for temperate climates, Yellow Horn - a high yield bio-energy and food oil crop suitable for cold climates and Moringa - high yield bio-energy and food oil crop suitable for tropical climates. All OHY plant oils are carefully selected for their compatibility for conversion to natural and value added products such as lotions, hair care, soaps and other personal care products.
Our initial focus is on the Camellia plant and OHY has teamed with researchers at the University of Georgia for the development of the Camellia oilseed. Approximately 5,000 plants have been delivered to the OHY/ Adams farm and will be planted by the end of March 2016.
Camellia is a high yield bio-energy and food oil crop suitable for temperate climates. Camellia also requires minimal workforce with the use of mechanical pruning and harvesting technology. Our Camellia product is currently being developed in SE Georgia, USA with plans for new oilseed farms in the four additional southeastern US locations.
The Organic High Yield, LLC (OHY) bio-fuels project is organized to produce and distribute plant oils for use as bio-fuel feedstock. Renewable Diesel fuel as well as (locally produced) green diesel feedstock (plant/vegetable oils) to the south eastern U.S. diesel fuel markets and to existing bio-fuel distributors (for conversion to Greendiesel) throughout the targeted regions. The project is also designed to utilize (currently under-utilized) land and labor/management resources of small (southeastern) U.S. farmers to produce oilseed (feedstock) for conversion to other value added products. The OHY business model creates partnerships with multiple groups/networks of farmers for production and (efficient) distribution of oilseed for green diesel and other renewable fuels. Each of these partnerships are organized into self sufficient business franchise that is partly owned by local farmers, and project participants.
