Pongamia (Millettia Pinnata, also known as Pongamia Pinnata) is a tree that produces seeds with a high oil content that can be converted into advanced biofuels. Other products and benefits associated with the tree, include high-protein food supplements for livestock, and biochemicals used as raw material for medicine and insecticides.

Pongamia Oil.

The Pongamia oil is derived from crushing the seeds of the Pongamia tree and by converting the seed pod shells and other plant material. The seeds have an oil content of +/-40%. Pongamia oil is a second-generation renewable biofuel that does not compete directly with food.

The major fatty acids in crude pongamia oil are oleic (51%), linoleic (16%), palmitic (11%) and stearic (7%). Pongamia oil extracts exhibit good chemical properties to be be used as biofuel feedstock. Fatty acid methyl ester from Pongamia meet the major specifications of biodiesel standards required by American and European standards organizations.

“Low ILUC” biofuels are defined as those produced from feedstocks that avoid displacement of food and feed crops through improved agricultural practices or through cultivation of areas not previously used for crop production. Doycker has committed to follow the Low ILUC guidelines by only making use of abandoned deforested areas, and to combine the cultivation of Pongamia with the production of specialty food crops.

Pongamia Seedcake.

A high protein meal is produced when oil is extracted from the Pongamia seed. After treatment, this meal can be used as feed supplement for livestock. Another option is to use the meal as high quality fertilizer. The seed cake has 4.28% nitrogen, 0.4% phosphorus and 0.74% potassium, along with useful amounts of trace elements which included 0.19% sulphur.


Karanjin is extracted from leaves, oil, or the meal, and can be used as a biological insecticide, and as raw material for healthcare products.
