Welcome to the website of Project Solaris

Project Solaris is aimed at commercializing a new biofuel crop to be cultivated within the EU. Solaris is a nicotine-free tobacco variety with a maximized seed yield. The oil from the seed can be used as feedstock for sustainable jet fuel or biodiesel production. High protein seed cake is a valuable co-product suitable for the feed industry. This project is supported by the European Union Horizon 2020 SME Instrument under grant no. 778030.

Sunchem is a company specialized in sustainable feedstock production. On this website you can find out more about this project to mature our Solaris crop for the European biofuel market. Sunchem’s mission is to provide the world with a sustainable alternative feedstock for protein and biofuel.
