Evogene has created Evofuel, a wholly operated unit, to speed up the development of Brazilian castor beans for the production of biodiesel and bio-jet fuel. "With the biofuel industry's continued growth and tremendous demand for cost-competitive feedstock, there is a strong and immediate need for a solution based on designated second-generation seed products," said Evogene President and CEO Ofer Haviv. Evofuel's creation "strongly positions it to address this substantial unmet need," he added.
