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.

"In Australia, Jatoil Limited announced that it has achieved production of 200 tonnes of crude jatropha oil. Jatoil's 70%-owned Central Java joint venture, PT Jatoil Waterland, isconsistently producing increased quantities of CJO, which is in high demand as airlines strivetomeet mandatory new European Union carbon dioxide emissionregulations." (Source: Biofuels Digest, 7 Feb 2011)


"Mission NewEnergy announced that it completed its second commercial sale and shipment of Jatropha oil to a major Europeancustomer, for use as a sustainable fuel. Thisshipment, comprising 60 tonnes of unrefined Jatropha oil, was three times the size of its last Jatropha oil sale. At approximately US$119 per barrel CIF Europe, the sale price represented a 34% premium to prevailing crude oil prices." (Source: Biofuels Digest, 17 Dec 2010)


Scientists in India have successfully run a car on bio-diesel without any alterations to the engine. The scientists at the institute have also launched a project with General Motors to develop Jatropha as a sustainable bio-fuel energy crop.

Under this project, a car was put on a testdrive
with the bio-diesel and successfully completed nearly ten thousand miles this month.

Currently, the bio-diesel produced by the institute is being used by some state-run organizations, including India's Defense Research and Development Organization,in their vehicles. (Source : NTD TV,15 Feb 2011)

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.


(Source: Manila Bulletin, 3 May 2011)



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
- Production models
- Fruit & oil yield in relation to cultivation techniques & conditions

- Value addition

- Revenue projection, costs and economics
- Oil production set-up and logistics

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 Practitioners Share Lessons Learnt from Large Scale Cultivation Successes & Debunk Myths at JatrophaWorld Asia 2011

Posted on : 25 Apr, 2011

Siemens, the German conglomerate is this week starting trials on behalf of an unnamed shipping company assessing the viability of jatropha-based biodiesel for powering turbines on a high-speed ferry.


The trials come amid tests which D1 revealed were being undertaken by two other unnamed European multinationals – one a consumer goods group using the biofuel to generate power, and another a specialty chemicals company assessing jatropha oil as a replacement for oil as a raw material.


the demand also represented a "vote of confidence" in the whole jatropha sector, after a series of setbacks, according to an industry insider….The significance of these trials is largely in terms of the industry, opening up potential markets for the oil, which has yet to fulfil the hopes of investors who rushed to back jatropha towards the end of the last decade.


The 70 tonnes of fuel being used for the three trials was, in the context of the industry, a "relatively significant" amount.

"And the prospects for returns from the oil and a meal byproduct, being research as an animal feed, suggest that as an investment proposition, jatropha may have a better future than suggested by recent history".


Read the entire article on: http://www.agrimoney.com/news/high-level-jatropha-trials-send-d1-shares-soaring--3023.html


In reference to above, there is no doubt that the industry is spurred to revive its momentum.


As a matter of fact, at JatrophaWorld Asia scheduled on 27-28 June 2011, in Hainan Island, China, Jatropha experts, cultivators and oil processors are anticipated to affirm this as they delve into the conference’s central theme of "Delivering Jatropha Oil to the Market – Strategies to Ramp Up Production”, share their knowhow including lessons learnt in large scale cultivation and also dispel common Jatropha myths.


A major highlight at this 1.5 day event is a private site tour to the Nursery and R&D Centre of China Petroleum Bio-Energy Co. Ltd (CPBE), arranged exclusively for registered delegates, and separately bookable on a first come first served basis.

First Government-funded bio-diesel plant in Uttar Pradesh for extracting oil from jatropha for biodiesel

Posted on : 31 Mar, 2011

The state department of science and technology is establishing a bio-diesel plant here for extraction of jatropha oil and its conversion into bio-diesel.


The plant, funded by the department of science and technology, Government of India, will be the first government-funded bio-diesel plant in Uttar Pradesh.


Established in the Biotech Networking Facility Center, run by the state’s department of science and technology near Bakshi Ka Talab area of Lucknow, the basic aim of the plant will be to train farmers by giving them first hand-experience in bio-diesel production. The facility can also be used by farmers who do large-scale jatropha farming to extract diesel from the oil.


“The plant is not a production unit, but rather a demonstration unit, which will enable farmers to know how to extract jatropha oil and then convert it into diesel for their usage,” said BL Meena, Principal Secretary, Department of Science and Technology, Uttar Pradesh.


The Department of Science and Technology, Government of India, has granted Rs 24 lakh for the one-time establishment of the plant. The state government has agreed to bear the expenses of running the establishment, including manpower and other infrastructure, she said. (Source: Indian Express, March 20, 2011)

Jatropha’s rise in Asia as a promising source for bio-diesel has been given a boost in countries such as India. With increased emphasis on sustainability alongside recent innovations for optimizing jatropha yields quality & mechanical harvests, more governments are recognizing the potential of jatropha as a viable alternative feedstock option.


What are the latest developments in effective large-scale jatropha commercialization and cultivation methods? How will the global industry be shaped by new sustainability standards? Experts at the JatrophaWorld Asia 2011 will provide answers to these issues and more. Due to convene in Hainan Island, China, on 27-28 June 2011, the conference is the 7th in the industry-setting series.


The program is being finalized & will be uploaded online shortly. For more information, click here to submit enquiries or contact Ms. Hafizah at hafizah@cmtsp.com.sg to pre-register your interest now.
