Rapeseeds from GoldExim
Rapeseeds for oil and biofuel production.
Rapeseed – (Brassica napus), is an annual plant that has a long and thin taproot which is usually 30-100 cm tall. There is also a Canola variety which is currently popular among Canadian farmers. Rape seed is widely known as rape which is cultivated mainly for its seeds that are oil rich. Rapeseed seeds in bulk are supplied from Ukraine to powerful processing plants in the EU.
Rapeseed is the third largest source of vegetable oil in the world, with palm and soybeans taking the first two spots. 95% of all Ukrainian rapeseeds is a winter crop, mainly because our climate better suits winter varieties hence better yields, quality and higher oil content. Speaking of yields, over the past 20 years our farmers increased the number from 1 ton from 1 hectare up to 2,5-3 tons/ha.
Areas of rapeseed use
Rapeseed is the third largest source of vegetable oil in the world, with palm and soybeans taking the first two spots.
Two main areas of use include edible oil production and production of biofuels. Rapeseed oil is almost flavorless, however it has slightly nutty flavor and contains alpha-linolenic acid as well as fundamental Omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids. Rape seeds are used for human and animal consumption as well as bird feed. Besides food industry, rapeseed is also used in metallurgical, textile industries; leather and soap production.
After rapeseeds oil extraction there is a meal as a byproduct which can be used for fodder as it is protein rich and can compete with soybean meal. Rapeseeds are sometimes grown by farmers as a green manure and cover crop.
Rapeseed oil can be used as diesel fuel, biodiesel - straight or blended with petroleum distillates.
