Couple Biodiesel oil Crops Technology provides more oil per acre,  Advanced Biofuel Center announces

The Advanced Biofuel Center  (ABC) recently announced progress on its work with its mission "more Biodiesel oil per hectare" by developing two or more dedicated Biodiesel Crops in same acreage and that without extra inputs.  According to the ABC, it has developed a highly productive procedure and system of plantation of a couple of oil crops in same land area and a set of best practices that will enable high oil yields.
The years of continuous research, experiments and trials have given ABC a big breakthrough in finding a Failsafe, Solid and a viable alternative feedstock for biodiesel in combination with Jatropha , Pongamia, Jojoba, Moringa, simarouba, Mahua and many more
No single feedstock is likely to solve the supply issues facing the biodiesel industry. We need sustainable, cost-effective and carbon savings feedstocks like Jatropha, Pongamia, castor, Simarouba, neem, Madhuca etc.
ABC CEO DP Maharshi said the organization’s research team with an effort to ‘grow beyond oil ', apart from Jatropha, have identified, developed and cultivated as many as 18 non-food oil crops (Dedicated Energy Crops). With years of continuing research, experiments and trials has provided an adage to find and develop 2nd generation biodiesel feedstock with low cost input technology in a bid to develop Our dedicated Biodiesel Crops such as:-
Calophyllum inophyllum L., (Perennial)
Camelina ( Annual)
Castor bean (Ricinus communis)
Pongamia pinnata (Perennial)
Jojoba (Perennial)
Citrullus colocynthis (Annual)
Moringa oleifera (Perennial)
Flax (Annual)
Mahua (Madhuca indica) (Perennial)
Kenaf (Annual)
Simarouba glauca (Perennial)
Indian mustard (Annual)
Garcinia indica (Perennial)
Moringa annual
JATROPHA CURCAS (Perennial)
Safflower (Annual)
"We have been in search of such an inter-crop for designated biodiesel crop which should be oil bearing like itself without competing with it for food and water and should be capable of fulfilling other crop fertilizer requirement and still maintaining soil fertility i. e. is a right oil crop that is planted in the right way with dedicated energy crop and with due care to what’s possible in terms of sustainable farming techniques" He said
"We have been experimenting different interplating options, patterns and agro- technologies focusing our analysis on the a number of primary non-food sources of biofuels — Jatropha, Jojoba, Castor, Pongamia, Moringa, Simarouba and many more — and details the amount of each type of feedstock that could be sustainably produced and utilized across the globe without compromising the fertility of agricultural soils, displacing land needed to grow our food, or threatening the health of our farms and forests." He further added
Scientist at ABC are experimenting two types of alternative cropping systems and associated management practices that might be used to generate large amounts of biofuel feedstocks while better protecting environmental quality and ensuring food security. A mix of perennial trees and annual crops could offer the best chance to produce a sustainable biofuel, according to the finding of scientists working at ABC.
The years of continuous research, experiments and trials have given ABC a big breakthrough in finding a Failsafe, Solid and a viable alternative feedstock for biodiesel in combination with more than one crop technology that will be a make-or-break factor for the success of future second-gen biofuel. If they have a strong story and the right technology including a clear proof of concept, roadmap to profitability, strong strategic partners and adequate and inexpensive access to feedstock, there is definitely appetite out there and by adopting Couple Oil Crop Technology they can equip themselves to eliminate "some week elements in their business model just to ensure the Future path to profitability.
Regarding Couple oil crop Technology, Mr. Maharshi said, "Having regards to the debate Fuel vs. Fuel and indirect land use change, we released first ever COCT Technology with regards to Jatropha in 2009. After that the years of research has resulted in commercialization of COCT.  Conceptualizing our objective more oil per acre we have successfully field tried the technology; We are also seeing very good field trial data for our new technology  and now we hope to cultivate +1450 gallon oil per hectare adopting our concept of couple oil crops"
Regarding the ABC’s future work with Biodiesel Companion Crop, Maharshi said that efforts will focus on further understanding the unique properties of the plants that can be manipulated to coax it to reach its fullest potential. This work will address horticultural practices, agronomics and sustainability.
According to Maharshi, ABC researchers have overcome several challenges that will help enable commercial cultivation as every dedicated energy crop has its agronomy requirement and Biophysical limits with regards to  Growing cycle and growing period, Radiation, Temperature,  Rooting, Water quantity/quality, Nutrients (NPK), Salinity, Sodicity, PH, micronutrients,  Pests, diseases and weeds etc. “The first challenge was to get the required yield, to get the plants to grow and understand its productivity over a number of years, and another problem was its maturity, as different crops mature at different time so best couple to be adopted, ” noting that the ABC’s COCT has overcome these problems .
Maharshi also notes that the ABC is not working to develop a high-etch agrarian concept for Biodiesel Crop cultivation that warrants maximum inputs and delivers bumper crops. Rather, he said the ABC is looking to develop a model for cultivation that is compatible with the practices of substance  farmer .
 The ABC experts working on the Moringa plantation have developed the best method of cultivating Moringa with Camelina and Castor bean crops with lowest possible investment of money, labor and materials and yield of 1450 gallon biodiesel per ha,” Maharshi said.

BBA reports more oil per hectare with Pogamia Plantation intercropped with Moringa

Centre for Jatropha Promotion & Biodiesel (CJP) is the Global authority for scientific commercialization of nonfood fuel crop. CJP is dedicated to the development of oil seed bearing trees - non-food multiple vegetable oil plantation and technologies in order to reduce dependence on fossil fuels, bring greater control and security of fuel supply and reduce dangerous climate changing emissions, including CO2. Global warming, greenhouse gas , food-versus-fuel, indirect land use change, deforestation—with these critical issues in the spotlight, the feedstock deficit -plagued industry badly needs less expensive feedstock in form of non-food crops. With an effort to ‘grow beyond oil, CJP has identified, developed and cultivated as many as 17 non-food oil crops. With years of continuing research, experiments and trials has provided an adage to find and develop 2nd generation biodiesel feedstock with low cost input technology. The CJP intensified its collaborative research approach with regards to perennial oil seeds bearing tree like Pongamia Pinnata, Moringa oliferia, Jojoba, simarouba, Mahua , Calophyllum etc. in combination with annual nonfood oil crops like castor, flax, safflower, camelina, colocynthis etc to have more oil yield per ha and to improve its product. The CJP’s mission is to perform cutting-edge plant science research in genetics, breeding and horticulture, and further develop technologies to allow for the economic commercialization and sustainability of energy farms globally..

BBA, the knowledge arm of CJP is working towards scientific commercialization of nonfood biodiesel trees/crops that will lend credibility; reliability and scalability with regards to food security, energy security and sustainable development and carbon savings. As research continues to mount in an effort to find low-cost breeding, cultivation and harvesting methods of nonfood-based oil bearing crops; We have been experimenting different intercropping options, patterns and agro- technologies focusing our analysis on the a number of primary non-food sources of biofuels — Jatropha, Jojoba, Castor, Pongamia, Moringa, Simarouba and many more — and details the amount of each type of feedstock that could be sustainably produced and utilized across the globe without compromising the fertility of agricultural soils, displacing land needed to grow our food, or threatening the health of our farms and forests.

Scientist at BBA are experimenting two types of alternative cropping systems and associated management practices that might be used to generate large amounts of biofuel feedstocks while better protecting environmental quality and ensuring food security. A mix of perennial trees and annual crops could offer the best chance to produce a sustainable biofuel, according to the finding of scientists working at CJP.

In the biofuels business, establishing the feedstocks for advanced biofuels is crucial for commercial development, given that the largest cost associated with production is for the feedstock. Just to make Investors more comfortable and knowledgeable for second-generation nonfood biofuel feedstocks to select right Couple oil crops mean two or more crops in same area of land and with little same inputs. The years of continuous research, experiments and trials have given BBA a big breakthrough in finding a Failsafe, Solid and a viable alternative feedstock for biodiesel in combination with more than one crop technology that will be a make-or-break factor for the success of future second-gen biofuel. If they have a strong story and the right technology including a clear proof of concept, roadmap to profitability, strong strategic partners and adequate and inexpensive access to feedstock, there is definitely appetite out there and by adopting COCT they can equip themselves to eliminate "some week elements in their business model just to ensure the Future path to profitability.

The potential of Pongamia Pinnata along with moringa has been studied in its effort to look for more viable feedstocks coupled with best available and affordable technology. The introduction of new oil crops system showed encouraging results enough to may change the entire scenario of the world biodiesel industry. There are many nonfood oil crop under field trials and experiments and after several years of research, CJP has got an improved highly yielding variety of the Pongamia Pinnata and developed enhanced crop cultivation technology with more yield and more oil .Now it is possible to have an oil yield of 330 gallon in 4th year, 1000 gallon in 7th year and 2000 gallon in 10th year from 1 ha plantation of this amazing crop and that too after leaving 70% land for other crops. Pongamia Pinnata will yield at Maturity as high as 1000 gallon oil per ha which shall reached as high as 3400 gallon in 15th year and shall be on higher side year by year up to>60 years with proper nutrition, and irrigation.  This is truly an exceptional amount of oil from an agricultural crop.

Moringa oleifera is a very fast growing tree; it commonly reaches four meters in height just 10 months after the seed is planted and can bear fruit within its first year. Its pods are triangular in cross-section (30 to 50 cm long) and legume-like in appearance. These pods have oil rich black and winged seeds, which can be crushed to produce biodiesel.Moringa could yield +3 ton oil per ha and that it could be used for food in times of shortages. The seeds contain 30 percent to 40 percent oil that is high in oleic acid. The meal yields about 61 percent protein. Biodiesel made from Moringa has better oxidative stability than biodiesel made with most other feedstocks the crop’s multiple dimensions would make it attractive to farmers worldwide. The Moringa oleifera tree that has enough 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 time

The Pongamia Pinnata and moringa oleifera 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 their ability to provide large amount of oil and pure hardiness and stress handling ability.

Moringa oleifera, a tree known for its vitamin-rich leaves and tolerance to drought is native to India but has been used across Africa and the tropics since ancient times, it is non-invasive and no problems have been reported concerning its interaction with other plants in native ecosystems. Pongamia Pinnata (Pongamia) is one of the few nitrogen fixing trees (NFTS) to produce seeds containing >40% oil. The seed oil is an important asset of this tree having been used as lamp oil, in soap making, and as a lubricant for thousands of years. The combination of both crops may yield 1000 gallons to 2000 gallons per ha which may reach beyond 3000 gallon in course of time. Emergence of the new crop system may change the entire scenario of the biodiesel industry and shall provide much relief to the industry which desperately in a need of a viable sustainable non-food feed stocks.

Introduction of moringa in a 10,000 hectare plantation of pongamia may generate feedstock enough to produce 15,000,000 gallon biodiesel in 8th year @ a production cost of US$ 34.92 per barrel with 52% net Profit

Pongamia Biodiesel – Enhanced Economics & better break-even, BBA reports

The Biodiesel Business Academy (BBA) has published enhanced Biodiesel Economics in a Study report Pongamia Biodiesel – Enhanced Economics & better break-even, on its work with pongamia, a legume tree that bears inedible oilseeds. With an effort to  ‘grow beyond oil, CJP has identified, developed and cultivated as many as 17 non-food oil crops. With years of continuing research, experiments and trials has provided an adage to find and develop 2nd generation biodiesel feedstock with low cost input technology. The CJP intensified its collaborative research approach with regards to perennial oil seeds bearing tree like Pongamia Pinnata, Moringa oliferia, Jojoba, simarouba, Mahua , Calophyllum etc. in combination with annual nonfood oil crops like castor, flax, safflower, camelina, colocynthis etc to have more oil yield per ha and to improve its product. The CJP’s mission is to perform cutting-edge plant science research in genetics, breeding and horticulture, and further develop technologies to allow for the economic commercialization and sustainability of energy farms globally.

Pongamia is an ancient tree that is native to Australia and India. It is frost tolerant, but not freeze-proof. It is also happens to be a legume, which is at the heart of what makes the business model so interesting. The tree yields a generous annual nut crop that is harvested with conventional shakers, such as those used by almond and other nut growers. That seed has approximately a 40 percent oil content that can be easily refined into high-grade biodiesel, biojet fuel, or even other high-demand biochemicals like oleic acid. The remaining seedcake can then be used as a high-protein animal feed or a high-nitrogen fertilizer. And because the tree is a legume, it is fixing nitrogen so the soils are improved and pasture grasses can even be intercropped for cattle grazing. The tree has a productive life of well over 50 years.

BBA, the knowledge arm of CJP is working towards scientific commercialization of nonfood biodiesel trees/crops that will lend credibility; reliability and scalability with regards to food security, energy security and sustainable development and carbon savings. As research continues to mount in an effort to find low-cost breeding, cultivation and harvesting methods of nonfood-based oil bearing crops such as jatropha, castor, moringa and algae for biodiesel production, CJP started commercial development of a legume tree Pongamia pinnata and developed special varieties of pongamia -  a highly productive variety of the plant and a set of best practices that will enable high oil yields.. Scientific findings and process on pongamia identified promising accessions with favourable traits for future establishment of orchards. Improved self-branching, early flowering and higher productivity. CJP’s elite Pongamia variety “Derris Indica(DI03SAP™)” will yield at Maturity as high as 1000 gallon oil per ha which shall reached as high as 3400 gallon in 15th year  with proper nutrition, and irrigation.  This is truly an exceptional amount of oil from an agricultural crop.

The 3rd Global Moringa Meet presents the Real Moringa Farming Manifesto - Good Food for Everyone Forever

Providing the people of the world with a dependable supply of healthy nutritious foods is perhaps the greatest challenge facing humanity. Our current farming methods are clearly failing. They are over-dependent on fossil fuels; they damage soils and deplete scarce water resources; they degrade everyday foods; they reduce biodiversity and squander precious wildlife; they pollute our global environment. We, the organizers of the global moringa meet, are convinced that the Earth’s natural resources are easily able to provide a good, healthy diet for everyone living on the planet today – and everyone likely to be living on it 50 years from now and indeed forever. All it will take is an agriculture based on principles of sound biology rather than economic dogma.
Globally, about 870 million people do not have enough to eat, and more than two billion suffer from micronutrient deficiency, according to United Nations (UN) food agencies. The Moringa tree is increasingly considered as one of the world's most valuable natural resources, as the main constituents of the tree have several nutritive ingredients. Its leaves, pods and flowers are considered good sources of vitamins A, B, B2, B3, B6 and C, folic acid, ascorbic acid, beta-carotene, calcium, iron, and amino acids. More importantly, its leaves are highly nutritious; being a significant source of beta-carotene, vitamin C, protein, iron and potassium Arial. Moringa oleifera is an essential plant in meeting global food security and sustain the livelihoods of many millions of people. Food vs. fuel, for most, comes and goes with price cycles. It is seen as a transitory debate, usually focused on a handful of feedstocks that producers of food or fuel have become overly dependent on. To us, diversity is the solution - and diversification the strategy, and scientists and entrepreneurs must ultimately solve the debate by ending the need for it.
BBA has identified the factors limiting the adoption and use of the Moringa Tree for Agricultural Development for Producing Biodiesel. Third  International workshop on Moringa for Food and Fuel Security in Jaipur on 21-22 November 2014 will explore the important role Moringa play in the lives of rural people and the global economy discussing advancement of existing and future agricultural development projects. CJP's experience, expertise, and views aboutMoringaand its use for agriculture development for the purposes of reducing hunger and poverty shall be highlighted in the 3rd Global Moringa Meet 2014.
Aiming at promotion of the international exchange and cooperation in above mentioned fields 3rd  2 day Global Moringa Meet(GMM 14) on November 21 & 22 , 2014 shall provide new insight in the potentiality of this crop for future exploitation and formulate strategies for developing moringa failsafe farms and also helps new growers to have holistic information on moringa crop.The Scope of GMM 14 will cover the academic research activities in Agronomy, Horticulture, and Biology, industrial practices in biofuels and bioenergy technology, and food biotechnology Engineering, Marketing and Financial aspects of Moringa commercialization

3RD GLOBAL MORINGA MEET 2014 is an international conference dedicated to the latest advancements in the science, technology and advancements in research, commercialization solutions and much more! Our aim in establishing this meet – which has became an annual event – is to encourage and stimulate fresh thinking on this, the greatest challenge of our time. We believe the people of this world – are entitled to the best foods our land can provide. The GMM 14 will investigate the most effective ways of achieving this. Though we are passionately committed to good science, the key to securing good food for all is rather the careful management of the world’s natural resources by well tried and trusted methods.

We have no agenda other than to secure a system of agriculture that feeds the world well and also fuels same time. The oil from the Moringa tree is a more sustainable biodiesel feedstock as it can yield both food and fuel. Among those searching for solutions to feed the hungry, Moringa is well known. Malnourished children flourish with the introduction of the nutritious Moringa leaf crop, which provides protein, vitamins and minerals in their diets. The greatest potential for this species is currently thought to be in its cultivation for the production of biodiesel. Yields of about 20 metric tonnes of pods per hectare per year are achievable for this species. This would equate to between 3000 and 4000 liters of biodiesel per hectare per annum. It is particularly desirable because it is a very low water-use crop and may be cultivated on marginal land commercially

If these are aims that you share please support our Meet. Join with us on this adventure. What we’re seeking is nothing less than a renaissance – for farming, for energy for food and for the world. The Scope of GMM 14 will cover the academic research activities in Agronomy, Horticulture, and Biology, industrial practices in biofuels and bioenergy technology, and food biotechnology Engineering, Marketing and Financial aspects of Moringa commercialization.

On behalf of the organizing committee, we are honored to welcome you to GMM 14 in beautiful downtown Jaipur. It will be a great pleasure to share the up-to-date advances in both fundamental researches and engineering practices, and to project the areas where we may contribute to our better life and planet.

Next, given that the industry is marking milestones with the development and commercialization of Moringa-derived products, particularly in the Europe, South America, Africa and Asia Pacific region where the diverse market is growing immensely, we have lined-up these top experts and their sessions on High Value Added Ingredients from Moringa

7th Biodiesel CropSphere 2014

7jwtpThe 7th Global Jatropha World 3.0 Integrated Nonfood Biodiesel Farming & Technology Training Programme which shall be held September 24-28, 2014 at Jaipur, India, is mostly dedicated to multifeedstocks for building a sustainable biodiesel industry.

The JatrophaWorld 2014 is re—designated as 7th Biodiesel CropSphere 2014 and re- designed to educate all stakeholders about critical issue of availability of right feedstock at right cost to make biodiesel a long-term business opportunity. Global JatrophaWorld 2014 marks the 7th edition with resounding success.

In the biofuels business, establishing the feedstocks for advanced biofuels is crucial for commercial development, given that the largest cost associated with production is for the feedstock. As such the 7th Biodiesel CropSphere 2014 shall make Investors more comfortable and knowledgeable for second-generation nonfood biofuel feedstocks to select right technology that will be a make-or-break factor for the success of future second-gen biofuel. If they have a strong story and the right technology including a clear proof of concept, roadmap to profitability, strong strategic partners and adequate and inexpensive access to feedstock, there is definitely appetite out there and by attending the programme they can equip themselves to eliminate “some week elements in their business model just to ensure the Future path to profitability.

The Centre for Jatropha Promotion & Biodiesel (CJP) intensified its collaborative research approach with regards to perennial oil seeds bearing tree like Pongamia Pinnata, Moringa oliferia, Jojoba, simarouba, etc. in combination with annual nonfood oil crops like castor, flax, safflower, camelina, etc to have more oil yield per ha and to improve their product. The CJP’s mission is to perform cutting-edge plant science research in genetics, breeding and horticulture, and further develop technologies to allow for the economic commercialization and sustainability of energy farms globally. In essence, CJP 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 achieved reliable and scalable results in energy farming.

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. If the development focus is properly balanced, the species will go through a series of improvements to continually enhance the characteristics. Improvement in yield, reduction in inputs or resistance to pests and diseases is an ongoing process which needs time. Jatropha is expected to be the first plant commercialized utilizing modern science. The improvements with applied science will accelerate its rapid improvement.CJP to provide the right steps to start the successful business ensuring that this crop is planted in the right way and with due cares to what’s possible in terms of sustainable farming techniques. Based on its proprietary knowledge plant science expertise enhanced technology and extensive experience and by integrating technical and managerial issues CJP has developed dedicated biodiesel crops Agricultural Training package to deliver Competencies through Qualified trainers with a practical 'hands on' approach.

CJP’s dedicated Biodiesel crops like castor, Mahua, moringa, pongamia, jojoba, simarouba are poised for commercialization as the newest, greatest biodiesel feedstock as these crops can produce the greatest amount of feedstock for the lowest input and cost. There are many promising crops on the horizon, but they need to be properly vetted scientifically. Good scientific research done by CJP’s scientists has shown that how oilseed crops grow best across different soil conditions and climates, and how they fit into existing production systems determining what consequences might result from growing these crops in terms of sustainability

Worldwide about 600 million hectares of land that has fallen out of agricultural production, is semiarid and prone to drought CJP’s dedicated energy crops such as Pongamia Pinnata, Castor, Moringa, Jojoba, simarouba, Mahua can be grown on such land could dramatically increase biofuel crop production without competing for land used for food crops.

Bringing a new high-yield crop to growers or a crop that has worked spectacularly well elsewhere and now works in local conditions. Or, increasingly, bringing new rotation crops, or used in place of cover crops to bring in a second harvest. Emergence of the new crops system may change the entire scenario of the biodiesel industry and shall provide much relief to the industry which desperately in a need of a viable sustainable non-food feed stocks. CJP’S Next 7th Biodiesel CropSphere 2014, the 7th Global Jatropha 3.0 Integrated Nonfood Biodiesel Farming & Technology Training Programme is all set to introduce you the real world of NONFOOD BIODIESEL CROPS where the attendees shall have the opportunity to interact with at least EIGHT crops with their science, agronomy and horticulture technology etc.

6th_Jatrophaworld_2013Economic Feasibility of Sustainable Non-Food Feedstock Based Biodiesel Production: Part 2

In a previous article titled Economic Feasibility of Sustainable Non-Food Feedstock Based Biodiesel Production: Part , we have covered how Pongamia Pinnata is going to be sustainable low cost feed stock to build a profitable biodiesel industry. In this article we are going to discuss the potentiality of Moringa oleifera: A multidimensional Perennial Biodiesel Tree

To date, food crops (corn, sugar, and vegetable oil) have been the primary source of biodiesels for transportation, but increased use of these fuels has created more problems than solutions: rising food prices and food price volatility, and accelerated expansion of agriculture in the tropics. This CJP analysis focuses on the 17 primary non-food sources of biodiesels —out of which seven namely Jatropha, Jojoba, Castor, Pongamia, Moringa, Simarouba and Microalgae have been tried, tested that adequate amount of each type of feedstock that could be sustainably produced and utilized across the globe without compromising the fertility of agricultural soils, displacing land needed to grow our food, or threatening the health of our farms and forests.
Future biodiesel production should be sourced from crop feedstocks such as moringa, pongamia and castor that can be grown on marginal land. This will ensure establishment of a sustainable biodiesel industry that will not compete for land and other resources with the rest of the agricultural sector that produces food and fibre. In addition, sustainable biodiesel production will rely significantly on the capacity to run economically viable and profitable operations that will be resilient to fluctuations in fossil and non-fossil fuel prices, and government policies in relation to renewable energy and carbon emission reductions.

Highly valued by the ancient Roman, Greek and Egyptian civilizations, the Moringa tree is now being 'rediscovered' in many areas of the globe. A combination of low yielding Moringa varieties, the absence of effective crop management, and high plant mortality during the planting phase, contributes to sub-optimal yields. Moringa investors and crop research institutes are continuously studying modern high-yielding varieties developed by breeding programs, under ideal climatic conditions in Africa, Asia, and America etc. Experts at Center for Jatropha Promotion & Biodiesel (CJP) are pursuing the unique suitability of all parts of the plant for a wide range of practical purposes ranging from agricultural to medicinal to fuel. Scientists at CJP have been gearing up for research and development activities to reap its fullest potential since last decade. With years of continuing research, experiments and trials has provided an adage to find and develop sustainable second-generation biodiesel feedstock with low cost input technology. In the search for more environmentally friendly fuels, the use of Moringa oil as 'Biodiesel' has proven to have technical and ecological benefits, and stands as an opportunity for agricultural development in arid and impoverished areas throughout the tropics and sub tropics globally. Besides reducing life-cycle emissions because of its high oil content (40%), relatively high crop yield and no competition with food crops.

The Moringa tree is native to India and grown in tropical and subtropical regions across Asia, Africa and South America. It is also grown as an ornamental tree in the southern United States.

Uses
Moringa oleifera has been used for such a wide variety of purposes that it has been described as a 'miracle tree'. It is grown in India as a vegetable tree, with the roots, leaves, flowers and fruit all being used for food. The leaves are the most widely used part, being compared to spinach in appearance and nutritional quality. Because Moringa oleifera produces leaves during the dry season and during drought, it is seen as a particularly useful green vegetable in developing countries when little other food is available. Its leaves and pods have considerable nutritional value, yielding many vitamins and minerals, and the leaves can be eaten either cooked or dried
However, the seeds are the most useful part of the plant. The oil that is extracted from them, which is sometimes known as 'ben oil', is used for a wide variety of purposes. They also contain a powerful flocculant, which is used for clarifying turbid water in developing countries (.
The seeds contain about 35-40% oil. This oil is of excellent quality, similar to olive oil, and is slow to become rancid. It is used as a fuel for cooking purposes and burnt for light in developing countries. It is also used in perfumes, as a lubricant in watches and other fine machinery, and for making soap.
The press-cake remaining after oil extraction has been shown to retain the active ingredients for coagulation, making it a marketable commodity as a flocculent. It can be used as a quick and simple method for cleaning dirty river water in developing countries. In fact, Moringa oleifera has been compared to alum in its effectiveness at removing suspended solids from turbid water. It can also be used to harvest algae from waste water, currently an expensive process using centrifuges. The press-cake also contains high levels of protein and makes and excellent stockfeed or a good fertilizer for use in agriculture.
Carbon Credit
Life cycle analysis of biodiesel produced from Moringa showed that the greenhouse gases emissions were reduced by 90 per cent when compared to petroleum diesel. Given the widespread presence and ease of cultivation of the Moringa oil plant it could be cultivated in conjunction with subsistence agriculture programs as a potential oilseed feedstock for biodiesel.
Food v Fuel & Moringa
Globally, about 870 million people do not have enough to eat, and more than two billion suffer from micronutrient deficiency, according to United Nations (UN) food agencies. The Moringa tree is increasingly considered as one of the world's most valuable natural resources, as the main constituents of the tree have several nutritive ingredients. Its leaves, pods and flowers are considered good sources of vitamins A, B, B2, B3, B6 and C, folic acid, ascorbic acid, beta-carotene, calcium, iron, and amino acids. More importantly, its leaves are highly nutritious; being a significant source of beta-carotene, vitamin C, protein, iron and potassium Arial. Moringa oleifera is an essential plant in meeting global food security and sustain the livelihoods of many millions of people.
Nanotechnology & Moringa
Nutrient-rich Moringa foods could play an important role in efforts to provide healthy diets for people around the world.Moringa could help ensure food security for people who are currently malnourished - a number that continues to increase despite international efforts, the bio-reduction of aqueous Ag+ ions by the plant extract of the Moringa oleifera leaf extract has been demonstrated. It can be also good source for synthesis of silver nanoparticles. This green chemistry approach towards the synthesis of silver nanoparticles has many advantages such as, ease with which the process can be scaled up, economic viability, etc. Applications of such eco-friendly nanoparticles in bactericidal, wound healing and other medical and electronic applications, makes this method potentially exciting for the large-scale synthesis
of other inorganic materials (nanomaterials).

Moringa as a source of biodiesel 
The oil from the Moringa tree is a more sustainable biodiesel feedstock as it can yield both food and fuel. Among those searching for solutions to feed the hungry, Moringa is well known. Malnourished children flourish with the introduction of the nutritious Moringa leaf crop, which provides protein, vitamins and minerals in their diets. The greatest potential for this species is currently thought to be in its cultivation for the production of biodiesel. Yields of about 20 metric tonnes of pods per hectare per year are achievable for this species. This would equate to between 3000 and 4000 liters of biodiesel per hectare per annum. It is particularly desirable because it is a very low water-use crop and may be cultivated on marginal land commercially

Yield Estimates: Moringa oleifera
Approximate Yield/hectare
Optimal yield 1st year
Seed yield 9 tons
Oil (36%) ton 3.2 ton
Biodiesel ton 3.2 ton

ILUC discussion and Moringa

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 Moringa does not causes land use change. Contrary to it Moringa is targeted for marginal lands which are unproductive. Most importantly it is food crop and same time it yields biodiesel- a perfect answer to the unscientific discussion
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 Moringa 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 CJP, the biodiesel from Moringa would be economically viable. The Moringa Biodiesel can be produced less than US$ 40 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[url=http://www.jatrophabiodiesel.org/moringa/economics.php]economics[/url]

CJP's knowledge arm BBA has identified the factors limiting the adoption and use of the Moringa Tree for Agricultural Development for Producing Biodiesel. Second International workshop on Moringa for Food and Fuel Security in Jaipur on 21-22 November 2013 will explore the important role Moringa play in the lives of rural people and the global economy discussing advancement of existing and future agricultural development projects. CJP's experience, expertise, and views aboutMoringa and its use for agriculture development for the purposes of reducing hunger and poverty shall be highlighted in the 2nd Global Moringa Meet 2013. Aiming at promotion of the international exchange and cooperation in above mentioned fields
2nd 2 day Global Moringa Meet(GMM 12) on November 25 & 26 , 2012 shall provide new insight in the potentiality of this crop for future exploitation and formulate strategies for developing moringa failsafe farms and also helps new growers to have holistic information on moringa crop.

Economic Feasibility of Sustainable Non-Food Feedstock Based Biodiesel Production: Part 1

CJP sees the future position of biofuels within the broader scope of the global transformation of the energy system from fossil-? Based to renewable energy-?based sources. A main threat for an accelerated transformation is the struggle for better fuel security. A second threat is of a global warming up to 6 ° C in this century as it is predicted by IEA officials on the basis of the 'business as usual' development. Calculations the CO2 emissions from fossil fuels need to be reduced by 50% until 2035 to keep on track towards the 'under 2°C temperature rise' target.

Believing in Biodiesel- the Centre for Jatropha Promotion & Biodiesel (CJP) is working towards scientific commercialization of nonfood biodiesel trees/crops that will lend credibility; reliability and scalability with regards to food security, energy security and sustainable development and carbon savings. With an effort to 'grow beyond oil ', CJP has identified, developed and cultivated as many as 17 non-food oil crops. With years of continuing research, experiments and trials has provided an adage to find and develop 2nd generation biodiesel feedstock with low cost input technology. The CJP intensified its collaborative research approach with regards to perennial oil seeds bearing tree like Pongamia Pinnata, Moringa oliferia, Jojoba, simarouba, Mahua , Calophyllum etc. in combination with annual nonfood oil crops like castor, flax, safflower, camelina, colocynthis etc to have more oil yield per ha and to improve its product. The CJP's mission is to perform cutting-edge plant science research in genetics, breeding and horticulture, and further develop technologies to allow for the economic commercialization and sustainability of energy farms globally.

With a fully integrated platform featuring a world-class leadership and science team, the most advanced multifeedstocks research into all aspects of nonfood energy farming crop improvement program in the industry and addressing the complete value chain, CJP is bringing the opportunities of nonfood oil to reality.

We are an agricultural biotechnology, research and development entity developing and producing seeds of hope to produce renewable biodiesel feedstocks that can enable the large-scale replacement of petroleum and other fossil fuels. We use a combination of advanced plant breeding and biotechnology to develop new crops, known as dedicated energy crops, that we believe address the limitations of first-generation biodiesel feedstocks, such as corn and sugarcane, increase seeds and oil productivity, reduce crop inputs and improve cultivation on marginal land.

We need to find a balance between food security, biodiesel energy, and environmental sustainability. Biofuels represent the best and most realistic partial alternative to oil as transport fuel; a new paradigm is required to take full account of its complexity given the technical, economic, social, and political ramifications, particularly for agriculture. Biodiesel for energy in all its forms, particularly biofuels, is intrinsically linked to a modern and dynamic agricultural sector. Food security and Biodiesel for energy can be complementary rather than exclusive.

First we shall discuss Pongamia Pinnata and its profitability in context of Food v Fuel and land use change debate.

Pongamia: a Promising Candidate for a Successful Biodiesel Industry

Pongamia, a versatile oleaginous tree has many attributes and multiple applications. Pongamia has attracted the world's attention as a sustainable substitute for petroleum products and its ability to grow and reclaim marginal lands.

Advantages of Pongamia Plantations

 

  • Food for fuel - Pongamia can be grown on marginal lands and produces stock food at the same time as producing fuel.
  • Even if it is grown on existing crop lands, it will increase the overall food production of the land.
  • Climatically suited
  • Legume
  • Deep tap root sources water and nutrients well down in subsoil - drought resistant,
  • Can make good use of available deep nutrients.
  • Oil production for biodiesel
  • Carbon sequestration via: tree growth, soil carbon increase due to nodulation and root growth, displacement when in production at year 4 of fossil fuels and beyond for a further 100years; replacement of petroleum based fertilizers.
  • Produces its own nitrogen thereby displacing approx 110-1100 kg per hectare/pa of nitrates applied as compound fertilizer.
  • Decreased requirement of fertilizers and reduction of cultivation results in lessening of potential soil and chemical runoff into the rivers and streams.
  • Fungicidal & insecticidal action decreases pest attack
  • Can be mechanically harvested.
  • Management to assist fire control
  • Cattle grazing in well established plantations with higher stocking rates and better quality pastures due to nitrogen fixation
  • Possibly direct use of oil in modified engines


In an integrated farming system Pongamia Pinnata can perform following functions

 

  • Providing fertility to other plants in the ecosystem by dropping their organic matter
  • The pruning used as an on-site source of mulch and fertilizer for crops
  • 'Pioneering' harsh, damaged, or open areas, boosting fertility and moderating harsh conditions
  • To increase fertility and organic matter in a low-fertility area prior to planting
  • Stabilizing soil with an extensive root system
  • To help prevent erosion Serving other roles and making other connections in a diverse ecosystem
  • To provide animal fodder, shade, windbreaker
  • In a farm systems using pongamia , using 15% of the land approx 10 tons of mulch could be produce per acre per year, 210 kg N/ha, 12 kg K/ha, 80 kg P/ha


Pongamia as a source of biodiesel

As Pongamia has high oil content (+36%) and can grow on malnourished soils with low levels of nitrogen and high levels of salt, it is fast becoming the focus of a number of biodiesel research programs. Some of the advantages of Pongamia are:A higher recovery and quality of oil than other crops, no direct competition with food crops as it is a non-edible source of fuel, and no direct competition with existing farmland as it can be grown on degraded and marginal land. As a legume it is also able to fix its own nitrogen from the soil, minimizing the need for added fertilizers. Whilst there are marked advantages in the use of Pongamia for biodiesel, many considerations are needed in addressing the world's complex energy situation.

Carbon Credit

Pongamia oil has been taken directly from the atmosphere as the tree grows—on average, one hectare (2.47 acres) of Pongamia absorbs 30 tons of carbon per year. Thus burning Pongamia oil instead of fossil fuels has the overall effect of reducing carbon dioxide emissions by about 75 percent and carbon monoxide emissions by almost 50 percent. CJP's research team identified and collected 42 high yielding candidate plus trees of Pongamia pinnata (L.) and evaluated genetic association and variability in seed and growth characters to develop improved Pongamia varieties. In 2009, we got first break through in developing elite Pongamia variety. Scientific findings and process on pongamia identified promising accessions with favourable traits for future establishment of orchards.Researchers at the CJP are currently researching the Genomic and Genetic of Pongamia, which will enable highly productive plantations of Pongamia to be grown. We are also seeing very good field trial data for our new variety with traits like better uniformity, improved self-branching, early flowering and higher productivity. CJP's elite Pongamia variety 'Derris Indica(DI03SAP™)' will yield at Maturity as high as 1000 gallon oil per ha which shall reached as high as 3400 gallon in 15th year with proper nutrition, and irrigation. This is truly an exceptional amount of oil from an agricultural crop.

Food v Fuel & Pongamia

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 Pongamia

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 Pongamia does not causes land use change. Contrary to it Pongamia 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 wastelandBiodiesel 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 non-food Pongamia 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 CJP, the biodiesel from Pongamia would be economically viable.
 
The Pongamia Biodiesel can be produced less than US$ 49 per barrel, see detailed [url=http://jatrophaworld.org/pongamia_pinnata_84.html]economics[/url]

Pongamia 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. The medium-sized evergreen pongamia can grow on marginal arid or semi-arid land and is a nitrogen-fixing tree, which means that it helps fertilize the soil. 'The tree and oil composition look basically promising. Researchers at India's CJP has honor to establish this untapped resource as alternative source for Bio-Diesel industry of future as pongamia is a strong candidate to contribute significant amounts of biofuel feedstock.

Drumstick Biodiesel debunks Fuel vs. Food Debate

The oil from the Drumstick tree known as Moringa tree is considered to be a more sustainable biodiesel feedstock as it can yield both food and fuel. Among those searching for solutions to feed the hungry, Moringa is well known. Malnourished children flourish with the introduction of the nutritious Moringa leaf crop, which provides protein, vitamins and minerals in their diets. The Moringa tree is native to India and grown in tropical and subtropical regions across Asia, Africa and South America. It is also grown as an ornamental tree in the southern United States.

The Drumstick (Moringa oleifera) is an essential plant in meeting global food security and sustain the livelihoods of many millions of people. Climate change provides both opportunities and challenges for attaining the potential contribution of the wonderful tree for sustainable human development. Strategies need to be developed to address key issues in productivity, crop plant-soil/water/energy resources management, and postharvest utilization as food and feed, nutritional and health value addition, and trade and commercialization, so that the role of Moringa in ensuring sustainable development can be enhanced. On realizing the potentiality of moringa as a nutritional security provider and the high value energy crop, much importance is attached globally and this is the right time to gear up for research and development activities to reap its fullest potential. Aiming at promotion of the international exchange and cooperation in above mentioned fields 2 day Global Moringa Meet(GMM 12) on November 25 & 26 , 2012 shall provide new insight in the potentiality of this crop for future exploitation and formulate strategies for developing moringa failsafe farms and also helps new growers to have holistic information on moringa crop.

A combination of low yielding Moringa varieties, the absence of effective crop management, and high plant mortality during the planting phase, contributes to sub-optimal yields. Moringa investors and crop research institutes are continuously studying modern high-yielding varieties developed by breeding programs, under ideal climatic conditions in Africa, Asia, and America etc. Experts at Center for Jatropha Promotion & Biodiesel (CJP) are pursuing the unique suitability of all parts of the plant for a wide range of practical purposes ranging from agricultural to medicinal to fuel. The GMM 12 provides an opportunity for experts from around the world to meet and address this agenda.

The Scope of GMM 12 will cover the academic research activities in Agronomy, Horticulture, and Biology, industrial practices in biofuels and bioenergy technology, and food biotechnology Engineering, Marketing and Financial aspects of Moringa commercialization.

Biodiesel business academy introduces farmers FUEL Initiative

While farmers are continuing to produce safe, abundant, and affordable food, feed, and fiber, the rising cost of fuel and power making most growers to explore opportunities to save energy. A variety of programs and technologies are available to reduce energy use for different components of agriculture. We at Biodiesel Business Academy (BBA) have been engaged in finding a sustainable solution for a small farmer. A survey was conducted to accurately estimate the fuel requirement of a small farmer for growing and harvesting the crops including livestock production.  Based on the findings of the survey a tiny biodiesel production system @farmers farm was designed and constructed.

BBA is happy to present an excellent System to process & produce Biodiesel at Farmers Farm to meet out daily requirement of fuel. The fuel requirement of a small farmer is estimated 80-110 liters per acre. With a population/plantation of minimum 50 trees of Pongamia Pinnata in farm or at boundary an amount of 500 liters fuel can be produced apart from enough biofertilizer for crops with marginal   cost. This   not only ensures climate smart farming but also provide small farmer a liberty to do things in sustainable way

State of Art Small scale Biodiesel Production at Farm

Produce your own fresh fuel directly on-farm.

BBA Oilseed Pressing and Biodiesel Reactor Systems add value to your crops by extracting oil directly on your farm. BBA Systems extract oil through natural, mechanical means, producing a high quality and stable oil that makes for an excellent on-farm fuel. We have invented a Tiny Biodiesel Reactor to produce 10-20 liters Biodiesel as per farmers daily/weekly/monthly Fuel needs.

Algae Biofuel Biology Science Education System launched

Biodiesel Business Academy (BBA) has launched Algae Biofuel Biology Science Education System as a part of its campus biofuel initiative for serving schools, colleges and universities, as well as developing world applications.

The Centre for Jatropha Promotion & Biodiesel (CJP) is a bioenergy crop research and development company and has highest priority to contribute to the transition to a sustainable society through social, economic and environmental development. To serve as Global Knowledge Platform for Sustainable Solutions for nonfood oil -based Biofuels, Biodiesel Business Academy© has been established We at CJP have been working on low cost production of algae biomass to make low cost biofuel and got specialization in small scale algae biofuel demonstrations. Presently we are working on a unique model to produce microalgae in a sustainable way

Microalgae biomass cultivation for biofuel is receiving a great deal of attention as a potential source of third generation biofuels, for several reasons. They can be cultivated on non-agricultural land, with many species growing in brackish or salt water. Many researchers consider that the productivity of microalgae could be greater than that of terrestrial crops and the lipid content can be high at over 70 % Algal biofuels have the potential to contribute to improving the sustainability of the transportation sector, but the potential is not yet realized. Additional innovations that require research and development are needed to realize the full potential of algal biofuels. It is expected that modern biotechnology tools for strain improvement including genetic engineering technologies will offer a solution for fast growing through engineering oil rich algal strains that can thrive in a range of climate conditions.

The students now have the opportunity to grow and harvest Algae in a easy to understand manner. The lab scale Algae Education System developed by BBA scientists and education professionals is an engaging way for science classes to apply the basic of Biology and principles of science. It is also a great way to introduce Algae Biomass Production — through small Algae Photo bioreactor — to students through hands-on experiments that take complex scientific processes and break them down into easy to understand lessons. The System helps illustrate real-world Algae from basics to biodiesel technology to students as well as the growing importance of the alternative fuel industry

Biodiesel Business Academy announces Algae Advancements

Algae are tiny, plantlike organisms that grow naturally and are composed of carbohydrates, proteins and plant oil. They are extremely diverse and can be found in most habitats of the world including fresh and sea water, salt lakes, soil, snow and on surfaces such as rocks and the bark of trees. Their size ranges from about 1 μm (nanoplankton) to more than 40 m (kelp), with many microalgae used for biofuels production in the size range 10-60 μm. Because of their fast growth rate and high lipid content, microalgae appear to be especially well suited for renewable biodiesel production. The use of algae as a source of biofuel offers an attractive sustainable alternative to other raw materials, as algae production does not necessarily compete for limiting resources such as fresh water  or arable land .Furthermore, algae photosynthesis rates are higher on an area basis compared with land plants, thus requiring less land to achieve the same level of production. Algae are therefore very attractive as potential sources of renewable biofuels

Commercial microalgae culture began as a health food in the 1950s and in last decade it turned towards fuel production with all existing parameters and procedures to harvest the algae. This state of art to harvest algae in same fashion as in case for health food has made the algae biofuel production more expensive and capital intensive. Though biofuels from algae hold great promise, Center for Jatropha Promotion & Biodiesel (CJP) researchers find that more innovation is needed to make the technology economically and energetically viable at a commercial scale.

 The allure of using algae to power the world’s vehicles has been at the heart of many business plans over the years.  The search for cost-effective biofuels is one of the noble endeavors of our time. CJP scientists have been working on the viability of algae for producing large amounts of energy-dense fuel with less input in a sustainable manner.

In awake of Downside of Using Algae as Biofuel; scientists at CJP are busy in innovations to realize the full potential of algal biofuels. The model under development at Biodiesel Business Academy (BBA ) the knowledge wing of CJP have focused on the energy efficiency of algae taking into account the cost, water intensity and resource constraints faced by algal biofuel production, in addition to the energy efficiency. As we try to balance the use of energy and water for our future, it is important to base our decisions on what technology will permit us to do and at what cost. We expect this comprehensive ongoing research work will result in a clear understanding of the constraints we are facing.

Growing algae in a large-scale and cost-effective manner and extracting oil from these algae is a challenge that needs a practical solution.BBA has developed a detailed techno-economic model of the whole algae biofuels production process. The initial findings are very encouraging and if we sum up the same we can produce algae biofuel @ <3.00US$ per gallon with an small investment of 1.00 million US dollars with our innovative unique and low cost technology

India has several key advantages as the location for algae biofuel plants as it receive abundant sunshine,  extensive land area unsuitable for agriculture and an abundant water source in the three side Ocean. Further India also has the advantage of a stable political and business environment. BBA invites project developers/investors to invest in our algae research so we may take a perfect algae fuel technology from lab to land and ultimately to ensure security, prosperity and sustainability across the globe

Companion Crude oil Crop cultivation Technology advances the breakeven point for Biodiesel Business

No single feedstock is likely to solve the supply issues facing the biodiesel industry. We need sustainable, cost-effective and carbon savings feedstocks like Jatropha, Jojoba, Pongamia, castor, Simarouba, neem, Moringa Madhuca  camelina, Brassica Juncea, flax, kenaf, Citrullus Colocynthis , Calophyllum , Kokum etc, . The experts and scientists at Centre for Jatropha Promotion & Biodiesel (CJP) have been experimenting different intercropping options, patterns and agro- technologies

 Experience has showed us that using companion planting throughout the landscape is an important part of integrated part of irrigation, wedding, fertilization and pest management. In essence companion planting helps bring a balanced eco-system to your Fuel Farm, allowing nature to do its' job. Nature integrates a diversity of plants, insects, animals, and other organisms into every ecosystem so there is no waste. The death of one organism can create food for another, meaning symbiotic relationships all around. We consider couple oil crop planting to be a holistic concept due to the many intricate levels in which it works with the ecology.

With this approach, whereby different dedicated crops are grown together is intended to enable mixtures of select plants to assist each other in various ways, including with nutrient uptake, pest control and pollination. Scientists at CJP have standardized the technology to establish and grow more than 1 crop in same acreages to enhance and advances breakeven point for Biodiesel Project developers/investors. Ultimately, this synergy is intended to increase crop production. 

The CJP’s tested and tried dedicated oil crops are perennial and annual which are combined according to agro-climatic condition prevailing in the project area after a feasibility study as to which crop can be planted with each other i. e. is a right oil crop that is planted in the right way with other right crop and with due cares to what’s possible in terms of sustainable farming techniques

Nothing drives innovation like need

Emergence of the combination crop system may change the entire scenario of the biodiesel industry

      The twin oil crop in the same acreage of the land

      Both non- food but one can feed

      Both requires low inputs

      Both hardy, drought resistant and pest resistant

      Double the output , from 1 ha 1350 gallon oil can be obtained

.

By using companion planting, we can discourage harmful pests without losing the beneficial allies. There are many ways you can find to incorporate these useful plants in your Energy Farm

We have released the commercial cultivation of the couple crop
