Jatropha! Back in favour as the ideal feedstock for biofuel production
Just in February, the European parliament voted for new rules that require lower emission levels from commercial vehicles. Worldwide, governments are also following suit on a similar route to increase targets for clean energy use in their respective countries.
With recent announcements of increasing supply of crude jatropha oil, Jatropha has risen up to skepticisms and misinformation, proving that it can be a sustainable feedstock option for biofuel.
CMT's JatrophaWorld is the premier international conference on Jatropha commercialization. It's a MUST attend meeting place for all serious Jatropha growers, investors, end-users and researchers.
JatrophaWorldspeakers debunks the hypeand are experienced operators andresearchers who'd providereal data and actual experience oncultivation, processing, and supplying oil.
JatrophaWorld Asia 2011 marks the 7thedition of the top-notch series - previously held in Jakarta, Miami, Hamburg, Kuala Lumpur, Brussels and Rotterdam with resounding success.

JatrophaWorld Asia 2011 spotlights on Successful Case Studies in Asia, Brazil & Madagascar
Posted on : 16 Jun, 2011
MANILA, Philippines — A former solon has proposed the use of public land for Jatropha propagation to help ease the country’s need to generate power and energy.
Herminio Teves, former congressman of the third district of Negros Oriental, said that the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) has recently declared a total of 14.2 million hectares of public land as “alienable and disposable.” He suggested that this land could be used to plant Jatropha, a tree that could be used for the production of biodiesel.
Teves said that if the public land will be utilized for Jatropha propagation, it will yield some 99.4 billion kilos of seeds, which could produce around 25 billion liters of Jatropha raw oil as bunker fuel to fire the country’s diesel power plants.
More information on Large-Scale Jatropha Cultivation & Oil Production will be revealed as speakers at JatrophaWorld Asia 2011 on 27-28 June share successful case studies of large-scale Jatropha seed & oil production in Asia, Brazil and Madagascar.
Among others they will present their viewpoints on:
- Business models
- Value addition
- Revenue projection, costs and economics
Report hails jatropha as good substitute for traditional jet fuel
Posted on : 23 May, 2011
A report on airline testing of oil from jatropha has shown it could be a potential substitute for traditional jet fuel.
Business Matchmaking, a non-profit company that works with airlines, says Japan Airlines, Air New Zealand, Continental, Brazil's TAM Airlines and most recently the Mexican carrier Interjet, in cooperation with European manufacturer Airbus, were all tested with the jatropha fuel.
The report, written by Yale's School of Environmental Studies and funded by Boeing, says the weed-like plant, ‘can deliver strong environmental and socioeconomic benefits’.
Jatropha is closing in on being back in favour as the ideal feedstock for biofuel production!
JatrophaWorld Asia 2011 is committed to provide a true depiction of its potentials and the latest developments in support of Jatropha's repute as viable feedstock for Aviation Biofuel production.
To substantiate the case further, one only need to listen in to the session on Progress of Jatropha R&D in Brazil and the Brazilian Biojetfuel Platform by Mr. Mike Lu, President, Brazilian Jatropha Growers Association (ABPPM) that will address matters including:
- Jatropha domestication program in Brazil - Embrapa Agroenergia
- Cultivar registration - Quinvita
- Mechanization - Jatropha harvesting
- Global Biojetfuel Platform
- Brazilian Biojetfuel Platform: Associated projects / Meeting the sustainable -- Feedstock production challenge
