Camelina meal contains oil, proteins and carbohydrates that can be used to develop value added bioproducts. In addition to containing valuable polymers, coproducts generated during the production of biofuels are inexpensive and renewable. Camelina is a preferred oil seed crop for biodiesel production since camelina is easier to grow and provides better yields. In this research, the components in camelina meal were extracted and studied for their composition, structure and properties. The potential of using the camelina meal to develop thermoplastics was also studied by grafting various vinyl monomers. Oil (19%) extracted from camelina meal could be useful for food and fuel applications and proteins and cellulose in camelina meal could be useful to develop films, fibers and thermoplastics. Thermoplastic films developed from grafted camelina meal had excellent wet tensile properties, unlike thermoplastics developed from other biopolymers. Camelina meal grafted with butylmethacrylate (BMA) had high dry and wet tensile strength of 53.7 and 17.3 MPa, respectively.
