Agriculture supplies and uses energy, and we, respecting this cycle of nature, become one more link in its chain.The rapidly increasing demand for liquid biofuels is connecting agriculture and energy more closely than ever.

The main reasons behind the support of biofuel production are concerns about climate change and energy security, as well the will for support of the agricultural sector through increased demand for agricultural products. We have made a commitment to ourselves for an environmental friendly way of using the world's resources.

That is why GF Energy since 2008 has developed a wide network of partners across Greece in order to promote contract farming in the field of energy crops.

Solving the energy problem
Support and promote the cultivation of energy crops for biofuel production is an essential solution for both environmental protection and sources of global energy, but also for agriculture support.

Greece has been noted with an energy problem since energy stocks are decreasing and energy consumption requirements are increasing.Changes in agricultural crops appear to be a solution that can give vent to the problem greek farmers may have to face in the future years.

Investing in greek land

In the last years, there has been a strong interest of new investors to enter the biodiesel production field. With this growing interest intensified even more, priority is given to the production of biofuels from domestic energy crops.

In Greece there is considerable potential for energy crops can be used for liquid biofuel production since climatic conditions especially conducive to energy crops cultivation, such as sunflower and rapeseed for biodiesel , and barley, wheat and corn for bioethanol.

Multiple Benefits

Considering the multiple benefits of energy utilization and characteristics of greek agricultural sector, such crops represent a solution for both fuel production and increasing of competitiveness of rural area, reversing the declining agricultural economy, strengthening employment and environmental protection. They contribute significantly to the reduction of our country's trade deficit by reducing oil imports, helping significantly to energy independence from imports. Moreover, after processing they provide high quality, non-mutated animal feed, a field on which our country is highly deficient.
