A Polypoldisation is applied to strains of trees species where the two sets of chromosomes are identified and bred to create duplicate sets of chromosomes, resulting in a 28-40% increase in Growth Rate. The mother stock are micro-propagated through tissue culture multiplication techniques, resulting in uniformed and identical trees, that are non-invasive, disease resistant and acclimatized to the region where cultivated. Clenergen distribute custom designed fertilizers and pesticides which will further enhance the growth rate of the biomass feedstock.
Polypoldisation technology is a scientific process first discovered in the 1970’s which is well established in the agri-food business, having been successfully used to encourage faster rates of growth in common crops such as corn, wheat, barley, rice sugarcane, cotton and sorghum. The technology has only recently been applied to the forestry industry the successful application of which has increased the biomass yield and shortened growing times in eucalyptus, willow, and poplar tree varieties.
