About Calophyllum inophyllum

It grows in warm temperatures in wet or moderate conditions. Mean annual rainfall required is 1000 mm. Mean annual temperature of 18–33°C. It tolerates a wide range of soils. It grows best in sandy well drained soils in coastal areas but will tolerate clays, calcareous soils, and rocky soils. The tree demands light and prefers full sun, and only less shade is tolerated. It is sensitive to frost and fire. It tolerates occasional water logging in coastal

Calophyllum inophyllum as a source of biodiesel 

The perennial tree flowers twice a year, with an annual average nut yield of 12 kg/ tree (5 year old) and 100 kg in 20 year old tree. Fruiting starts at 4-5 yrs. a five year old tree yields 3 kg kernel, ie.2.1L oil per tree. The highly acidic and viscous oil was found to yield inferior quality biodiesel using conventional conversion processes, but modified production processes led to better results. As part of the study, researchers conducted engine tests using B5 and B20 biodiesel produced with Beauty leaf tree oil and found that it performed as well as conventional diesel.

Calophyllum inophyllum Research & Development

The Biodiesel Business Academy (BBA) included Calophyllum inophyllum  in its research portfolio on the basis of certain solid credentials: a higher recovery and quality of oil than other crops, no direct competition with food crops as it is a edible source of fuel, and no direct competition with existing farmland as can be grown for both purpose: same this tree can be established as a biodiesel feedstock crop either in monoculture or in mixed planting with other biodiesel feedstocks or food crops.

Enhanced cultivation Technology

Even a superior genotype variety planted in inadequate soil and improperly cared for, will be unable to reach its potential and will create dissatisfied stakeholders. BBA scientists are continuously working on enhanced genetics, agronomics and horticulture sciences to drive new varieties, more knowledge around the plant’s nutritional requirements and more science-based processes for the care and custody of the plant and have Cultivation Techniques Calophyllum inophyllum. The years of continuous research, experiments and in cultivating and breeding the tree, BBA was able to develop a systematic breeding and cultivar development strategy. Newly bred cultivars are extensively tested in multi-location trials and true to type seeds are being produced with high quality standard


Food v Fuel & Calophyllum inophyllum

The surface required to grow sufficient feedstock for today’s biobased fuel production is less than 0.008% of the global agricultural area of 5 billion hectares. In a world of fast-growing population with an increasing demand for food and feed, the use of feedstock for non-food purposes is often debated controversially. The Study Report “Non Food Biodiesel – Enhanced Economics & better break-even” published by Biodiesel Business Academy (BBA) has given the debate a factual turn. In a world of fast-growing population with an increasing demand for food and feed, the use of feedstock for non-food purposes is often debated controversially. Dilemma of diverting crops and farmland that once produced food for family and for feed for animals, is now being produced for biofuels is not right and just to take the debate away and make it unnecessary we at CJP are promoting nonfood oil crops on the no use land- land that is not otherwise suitable for farming of foods.

ILUC discussion and Calophyllum inophyllum

Many studies have shown there is enough land available to produce more food, more feed and more biofuels. Though the discussion of indirect land use change (ILUC) caused by biofuels is not scientifically supported, the Calophyllum inophyllum does not causes land use change. Contrary to it Calophyllum inophyllum Contrary to it is targeted for marginal lands which are unproductive, often because of salinity and for water logging. It is claimed to be highly salt tolerant and as such is used for reforestation in the dry, saline wasteland. Biodiesel can make a large contribution to the world’s future energy requirements; this is a resource we cannot ignore. The challenge is to harness it on an environmentally and economically manner and without compromising food security.

Economics: Cost & benefit ratio

By using Calophyllum inophyllum tree for biodiesel production and then utilizing the waste for further oil extraction. Using current proven sate of art agronomy, enhanced cultivator and technologies developed by BBA, the biodiesel from Calophyllum inophyllum would be economically viable. The Calophyllum inophyllum Biodiesel can be produced< US$ 50 per barrel without taking into account by-products revenue. If we credit the revenue from by-products like press cake, glycerin, leaves etc.  Biodiesel can be produced @ no cost, see detailed economics below

Calophyllum inophyllum has attracted attention as pressure mounts to find sustainable alternative fuels to help meet countries' renewable energy targets and cut greenhouse gas emissions, without interfering with agricultural production. Researchers at BBA  has honor to establish this untapped resource as alternative source for Bio- Diesel industry of future as Calophyllum inophyllum is a strong candidate to contribute significant amounts of biofuel feedstock.

Therefore the Calophyllum inophyllum trees must be regarded as a sure source of 2nd Generation Biodiesel and the foundation around which a profitable Business plan can be built for its ability to provide large amount of oil and its pure hardiness and stress handling ability. The Calophyllum inophyllum is tree that has enough credentials:  a higher recovery and quality of oil than other crops, no direct competition with food crops as and no direct competition with existing farmland as it can be grown on degraded saline and marginal land. Based on our proprietary knowledge and extensive experience gained we have developed Based on our proprietary knowledge and extensive experience gained we have developed and enhanced a wide range of Products for creating a “FALESAFE FUEL FARM”

CALOPHYLLUM INOPHYLLUM BIODIESEL BUSINESS PLAN: BBA’s Professional Business Plan Service

A feasibility study and a business plan are essential steps in developing a successful biodiesel business. However it is not easy to prepare an excellent business plan.

With its extensive experiences in the field, enhanced technology, plant science & professional knowledge,  effective consulting service and business intelligence BBA  can clearly understand the business model, products and services, production, marketing and provides all aspects of feasibility analysis and business development including assessments of the following: crop production, crushing, co-product markets, feedstock acquisition and contracting, technology analysis, risk analysis specific to biodiesel technology, feedstock, markets, and general project risks, market and  financial analysis.
