Flowering oilseed rape (canola). Rape can be grown as a high erucic-acid variety for a number of uses, including biolubricants, for which it has many advantages, including a greater oxidation stability and less of a tendency to form gums & residues. It is CO2 neutral to the environment in total-loss situations such as release agents or chainsaw oil, or in such recyclable applications as metal-cutting lubrication.
