Following on from Virgin’s decision to join the initiative in July, GE will also partner with the Renewable Oil Corporation (ROC), Dynamotive Energy Systems Corporation (DYMTF) and the Future Farm Industries Co-operative Research Centre (FFI CRC) to experiment with the use of fast pyrolysis technology developed by DYMTF to farm and process a eucalypt tree as a source of biofuel.
