At CleanStar Energy (CSE), we focused our energies on addressing the fundamental issue surrounding bioenergy plantations—genetically superior planting material that is robust and high yielding. We chose Pongamia, a non edible oilseed species native to India and found across the length and breadth of the country. We also chose Pongamia for its drought resistance, nitrogen fixation and thriving in arid conditions.
The process of identification and selection of the genetically superior parent trees and cloning them through vegetative propagation has been patented, and is the sole preserve of CSE. The path breaking work on Pongamia was led by scientists with over 40 man years of research and field expertise working on producing high yielding varieties of both edible and non edible oilseeds.
The genetic superiority of our Elite Pongamia results in over 99% survival under the harshest of conditions. The other features that distinguish us from ordinary Pongamia trees are:
Like Pongamia, our genetically stable Arundo can yield between 30 to 40 tons per Ha under managed plantation condition. Native to India, it can be harvested annually after the second year. These genetically stable and virus free planting material are produced in our biotechnology partner’s company in Europe using a worldwide patented, state of the art micro propagation technology.
Some of its unique characteristics are:
It is possible to reverse climate and environment degeneration. But, we can’t do this alone. We need you too. Come, join hands with us to create a Carbon Neutral future.
Managed BioEnergy Plantations are assets for future energy security while regenerating the environment around it. Host of byproducts adds to the financial gains.
