is an Ecuadorian corporation exclusively engaged in developing agro-industrialprojects to convert carbohydrates into ethanol and biodiesel in Ecuador, using sugarcane, cassavaroots, agriculture waste of banana crops, and
as feedstock.The production and use of fuels using vegetable oils has been with man since the days of RudolphDiesel when he first demonstrated biodiesel derived from peanut oil. Today’s world of GlobalWarming and Climate Change, high fuel prices, at this moment the barrel of oil is over US$100.00dollars, and uncertain political realities has created a new and intensified interest in Biofuels.Etanolsa S.A. has been actively working in gathering fertile lands to develop the cultivation of jatropha curcas under the best geographically conditions, mainly in the Peninsula of Santa Elena,and also in the near future operating and maintaining jatropha nurseries and jatropha plantationsthroughout the Peninsula of Santa Elena. Upon maturity of the Jatropha seedlings and a successfulharvest of the oil bearing seeds, we will process and refine the oil to produce biodiesel that can beused pure or mixed to create a biodiesel blend.The Jatropha oil and Jatropha biodiesel can be used in a number of applications ranging fromautomotive fuel to electric generation using a diesel generator. Auto manufacturers like Mercedesand Daimler-Chrysler are already trial running cars on Jatropha biodiesel with great results. Aside from our large scale activities Etanolsa S.A. is actively involved in a number of localcommunity based micro generation projects in the intercrop plantation. By enabling small localcommunities to get involved in various stages of the biodiesel process we are assisting them ingrowing towards economical independence and bringing the freedom and safety of a reliable power supply to areas that previously had none.We are ready to ensure sustained use of water supplies, land and natural resources, thedevelopment of biofuels must be planned, managed and maintained. Ecosystems and Rainforeststhrough out the world, that are being destroyed for the sake of biofuels, must be stopped. Other major considerations are land competition for food vs. biofuel production, considerations on habitatdestruction and animal species, availability of water, pollution of lands with fertilizers which can leadto soil erosion, safety of people who harvest phytoproducts for biofuel production and issues of developing large massive plants instead of small localized plants near the crops that will be used tomanufacture biofuels.
FIGHTING DESERTIFICATION & CREATING WEALTH IN THE PENINSULA OF SANTA ELENA
Jatropha curcas is a tough perennial tree could survive even in the desert, and could actuallystabilize soil and combat desertification, at the same time as its beans could be refined for dieselfuel.In Ecuador by employing and developing this cultivation projectseems to be hopeful momentum towards increasing use of
