Opportunity In Citronella-Based Bioindustry

Sometimes solution for big problem is just in front of our eyes but we couldn’t see it yet. It may be the case for various problem in sustainable renewable industry, environment, health, job and economic growth. What we need is just to open our eyes and see it around us, what our Lord have given abundant blessing.





In Indonesia we have essential oil called Java Citronella Oil – it is the best in the world, and easily grow well almost anywhere in Indonesia. There are some similar Citronella Oil out there, but not as good as Java Citronella Oil of Indonesia.


The beauty of this particular oil is on it composition and possible derivatives of the oil. It is sources of feedstock for various industries start from food, perfume, toiletries, plant-based pesticides – and the most interesting development is for fuel bio additive. Based on various research, it could reduce gasoline consumption between 10% - 30% and diesel consumption between 10% - 40 % whilst improving engine performances.


But all of these only theory until we really build the industry. We are in Indonesia Startup Center have done our part, start from planting the seed up to the oil production at industrial level scale.
