  1. *Others include non-renewable biomass and renewable energy sources, such as solar, wind and water, that may be used in the process. The Group 1 column lists the energy demands for cultivation of wild-type Camelina seed; columns under Groups 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 list demands for cultivating genetically modified plants with various levels of yield improvement (10%, 20%, 30%, 50% and 100% mass increases per unit area, respectively). Cells contain ratios of MJ (input)/MJ (output).
