About Biodiesel

• From Jatropha Carcus

• New invention to replace diesel as
• Have a lot advantages compare to
• A very profitable business
•Also known as White Physic Nuts
•Easily grown from stems and seed
•found in the tropics and subtropics and likes heat,
•Is resistant to drought and can be planted even in the desert climates,
and it thrives on any type of soil, grows almost anywhere; in sandy,
gravelly and saline soils.
•Needs minimal input or managementHas no insect pest it is not
browsed by cattle or insects.
•Can survive long periods of drought.
•Growth rapidly
•Starts yielding from the second year onwards and continues for 40
•Quickly establishes itself and will produce seeds in the 6th month’s
•Approximately 30 to 40% of oil extracted from the Jatropha seeds.
•be transformed into biodiesel fuel through esterification.
•oil can be combusted as fuel without being refined
•It burns with clear smoke-free flame
•Can help to increase rural incomes, self-sustainability and alleviate
poverty for women. elderly, children, and men, tribal communities, small

Carbon Offset
-1 hectare plantation (2,500 plants) will produce a reduction of 20 tons of CO2 per
year for 40 years.
-2,00 plants will produce around 10 tons of seeds which at 35% yield will produce
3,500 litres of biodiesel which result in 9.2 tons of CO2 offset every year for 40 years.
-10 tons of seed will produce 6,500 kg biomassfrom de-oiled seed cake which will be
used for gasification to produce methane that will be harnessed for the captive
consumption to replace highly-inefficient wood burners with gas fired burners and
electricity, Thus, jatropha plantation has a much higher impact in reduction of
greenhouse gas emissions in than any other plantation projects.
