David Kainer (Foley group) and Carsten Kulheim (Foley group and Crisp group) have published an article in The Conversation entitled ‘Renewable jet fuel could be growing on Australia’s iconic gum trees’.

The article describes how Australia could use the diversity of its naturally occurring eucalypts to develop and sustainably farm variants with high yields of desirable essential oils, for new commercial purposes.
