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, is consistently producing increased quantities of CJO, which is in high demand as airlines strive tomeet mandatory new European Union carbon dioxide emission regulations.” (Source: Biofuels Digest, 7 Feb 2011)

Mission NewEnergy announced that it completed its second commercial sale and shipment of Jatropha oil to a major European customer, for use as a sustainable fuel. This shipment, 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 test drive 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)

2nd Jatropha World Africa | 14-15 October 2009

Conference Schedule | PDF Brochure

Are you looking for Practical Tips to optimize your Jatropha Value Chain?

As a Jatropha stakeholder, are any of these issues frustrating your business plans?

  • Insufficient information on Jatropha (agronomic data and practices, state of projects, market of Jatropha products, etc)
  • Drying sources of financing for Jatropha projects.
  • Ensuring that your jatropha project is classified as sustainable.
  • Lack of a coherent global Jatropha supply chain.

What if we said you could find solutions & fresh perspectives on all these issues and more, under one roof?

2nd JatrophaWorld Africa shares insights on Jatropha best practices, supply chain issues & sustainability criteria.

2nd JatrophaWorld Africa, which convenes on 14-15 October 2009 in Brussels, BELGIUM, offers a platform for the world’s jatropha community to interact, share experiences and get updates on the latest market information on Jatropha, with special focus on  Jatropha projects in Africa, where Jatropha is used as a tool to revitalise wasteland and improving livelihoods in rural areas.

Part of the JatrophaWorld conference series which has benefitted over 1700 Jatropha practitioners from over 100 countries, 2nd JatrophaWorld Africa offers a series of Practical Tips for Jatro-entrepreneurs looking to take their Jatropha business to the next level.

So what are these “Practical Tips”?

Practical TIP 1– Pinpoint Ideal Location & Best Practices for Jatropha Cultivation in Africa.

As they say in the real estate industry, it is all about the location. Isn’t it the same deal in Jatropha?

Choosing the right place for your Jatropha project, especially in a continent as diverse and varied as Africa, requires a holistic view of key criteria for site selection.

Beyond the site selection, the establishment and management of a Jatropha project offers a completely new challenge. Jatropha Project developers need a fine-tuned understanding of Jatropha’s requirements and its possible interactions with the local environment, to customize farming practices to suit conditions on the ground.

If these are some of the real-world challenges you face, you need to come to 2nd JatrophaWorld Africa where experts will share insights on:

  • LAND SELECTION & PREPARATION, SOIL CONSIDERATION / REHABILITATION
  • GOOD PRACTICES IN THE ESTABLISHMENT AND MANAGEMENT OF LARGE SCALE JATROPHA PLANTATIONS IN MOZAMBIQUE
    Presented by: Jon Mc Lea, R&D Manager, Energem Biofuels Ltd.
  • PERFORMANCE & YIELDS OF 4 YEAR-OLD PLANTATION IN MOZAMBIQUE
    – Plantation setup and maintenance- The seedling nursery, planting out and the use of fertilizer, insecticide and irrigation
    – Agronomic practices & husbandry techniques
    – Correlation of soil quality/ use of fertiliser and insecticide/ water quantities to yields.

Practical TIP 2 – Choosing, Adopting & Adapting the right Jatropha Plantation Model.

In line with the JatrophaWorld conferences, we had conducted a series of high-level CEO interviews with Jatro-Entrepreneurs from around the world, where we asked them key questions on Jatropha cultivation.

One question that always received mixed answers was the one on choosing a centralised plantation or outgrower system for Jatropha cultivation. While both models had their proponents and opponents, the consensus was, “It depends on the conditions on the ground”.

At 2nd JatrophaWorld Africa, proponents of a centralised plantation and outgrower systems will share their side of the story. They will also address how they have adopted and adapted these systems to suit the local conditions at their Jatropha project site. These sessions are aimed at giving you insights on how you can make the decision on your Jatropha plantation model.

On the agenda are sessions offering:

  • PERSPECTIVES FROM OUTGROWER PROJECT OWNER IN TANZANIA
    Presented By: Ruud van Eck, CEO, Diligent Energy Systems BV
  • PERSPECTIVES FROM A CENTRALISED PLANTATION OWNER
    Presented By: Tom Swithenbank, CEO, Energem Biofuels Ltd

Zoom into real-life experiences with Centralised Plantations and Outgrower systems at 2nd JatrophaWorld Africa with our dedicated sessions featuring experiences sharing by top Jatropha Practitioners.

Securing Funding for Jatropha Projects a challenge? Our next Practical TIP explains how you can get around this challenge.

Practical TIP 3 – Secure funds & Carbon Credits for Jatropha cultivation & processing.

If you thought, “easier said than done”, you are not alone in thinking this way. The very basic requirement for funding is often one of the hardest to secure for Jatropha business owners.

The time has passed for mincing words in light of today’s economic climate.

You need to come to 2nd JatrophaWorld Africa & air your views at the Financier’s roundtable. This unique session provides a platform for dialogue between leading Jatropha project financiers and Jatro-Entrepreneurs looking for innovative financing options.

Entitled, “HOW TO RAISE FUNDS FOR JATROPHA PROJECTS DURING A CREDIT CRUNCH?” the roundtable discussion will address key questions including:

– How to draw interest from investors?
– What is the Role of Microfinance, Development Banks, Private Equity, Government Grants in Jatropha financing?

Panellists include:
Christophe de Landtsheer, Managing Director, Tank Terminal Technologies
Hans van den Berg, Partner, Mother Earth Plantations Pte. Ltd.

At 2nd JatrophaWorld Africa, we leave no stone unturned. That is why we are revisiting Carbon Credits for Jatropha projects. Often dismissed as unfeasible, CDM experts are now devising innovative ways of utilizing CDM methodologies for Jatropha projects.

At 2nd JatrophaWorld Africa, we present an update from a leading CDM expert on, “OPPORTUNITIES FOR CARBON CREDITS IN JATROPHA BIOFUEL PROJECTS”. The session will address:

  • Carbon Credit Potential for Jatropha Projects
  • Opportunities & Methodologies in CDM / VCS
  • Carbon Market Outlook & Expected Price Development
  • Process for Generating Carbon Credit (Timeline)
  • A CDM Case Study
  • Post Kyoto scenario

Presented By: Patrick Horka, CDM Project Manager, South Pole Carbon Asset Management Ltd.

Prominent financiers and investors sharing tips and insiders’ perspectives on raising funds, and tapping on CDM and Carbon Credits for extra income are two sessions you must attend at 2nd JatrophaWorld Africa 2009!

Looking for insights on how to sell to the European Markets? Stay tuned for our next Practical TIP…

Practical TIP 4 – Understanding & Working with the European Commission’s Policies on Jatropha.

There are vast differences in viewpoints and uncertainty over using Jatropha as a feedstock for Biofuel.

In the EU, “Directive 2003/EC on the promotion of the Use of Bio-fuels or Other Renewables for Transport” requires member nations to target a substitution of 2% of fossil fuel to 5.75% by 2010. With new standards imposed to assure sustainable Biodiesel, meeting the 2010 objective has become more challenging.

So where does Jatropha stand in EU policy?

We have invited a Mr. Oyvind Vessia, DG – Tren from the European Commission to clarify on the, “EU Biofuels Policy in the context of the Renewable Energy Directive“. Mr. Vessia’s speech will also touch on Jatropha, and how it fits into the EU biofuels policy.

If you are producing Jatropha for export to the EU, insights on the EU’s stand is critical, which is why you need to sign up for 2nd JatrophaWorld Africa.

Is Harvesting Jatropha draining your resources? Then read on for our next Practical TIP…

Practical TIP 5 – Optimise the Efficiency of Your Jatropha Harvesting Process.

Harvesting Jatropha is very labour intensive, and while it might be perceived as ‘employment opportunities’ for poor jobless workers in  marginal arid land, there is still a need to think of better ways to harvest the Jatropha fruit.

BEI international’s Director, Max Lint recently shared about a breakthrough in Automated Harvesting for Jatropha, which he believes, will make headway into improving the efficiency of harvesting Jatropha and cutting overall costs of production.

Max will be sharing more information and updates on his breakthrough in Mechanized Jatropha harvesting at 2nd JatrophaWorld Africa.

Approximately 500 man-hours are spent harvesting one tonne of Jatropha seeds. With labour costs making up over 30% of Jatropha oil production costs, improving the efficiency of Jatropha harvest can go a long way towards giving Jatropha Oil the competitive cost advantage over alternative Biodiesel feedstock.

If you are looking for ways to step up your Jatropha Harvesting efficiencies, come to 2nd JatrophaWorld Africa to hear from BEI International LLC’s Automated Jatropha harvester.

The secret for Long-term Jatropha success shared in our next Practical TIP…

Practical TIP 6 – Making Sure Jatropha Cultivation won’t compete with Food Crops or Upset Delicate Ecological Equilibrium.

In the Jatropha industry, we have always taken pride in positioning ourselves as a ‘non-food’ crop that does not compete with food crops for land. In addition, by planting on marginal land, the industry has avoided the need to clear valuable ecosystems including rainforests to grow Jatropha.

However, it is not easy to work within sustainability parameters, and maintain a profitable Jatropha business. Studies have proven that Jatropha, like any other crop, will offer better yields when grown in fertile land. The temptation to put short-term profit over long-term, sustained profits and benefits is a real one!

To remind us of the benefits of growing Jatropha sustainably, a senior representative from WWF will share an overview of the SUSTAINABILITY & ECOLOGICAL EFFECTS OF JATROPHA CURCAS. The session will outline how Jatropha, if cultivated sustainably, offers positive ecological spinoffs.

WWF’s session will be backed by the research study of Ir. Wouter Achten from K.U.Leuven, who will be presenting on “LIFE CYCLE ASSESSMENT (LCA) OF BIODIESEL PRODUCTION FROM JATROPHA CURCAS L”. Ir. Achten will touch on:

  • The life cycle of low input jatropha production system for local fuel production with a fossil fuel reference
  • Major impact categories (greenhouse gas balance, energy balance, ozone depletion, acidification, eutrophication, land use)
  • Comparison with alternative jatropha scenarios (transport to regional cities or to industrial countries)
  • Comparison of different uses of byproducts (seed cake)…

LCA of jatropha biodiesel production compares the full range of environmental and social damages, helping you to choose the least burdensome route of production.

The conference also features a session that will discuss Jatropha’s current position in the “FOOD vs. FUEL” debate, and how Jatropha stakeholders can take an active role in ensuring Jatropha does not compete with food crop cultivation.

2nd JatrophaWorld Africa will equip you with the tools to align your Jatropha project to remain socially and ecologically responsible, while remaining profitable in the long term.

Practical TIP 7 shares a little known fact on Jatropha Utilization…

Practical TIP 7 – Complete Utilization of Jatropha, including Jatropha oil, bio waste & seedcake.

Is it possible to take 100% advantage of the Jatropha plant? Does Jatropha biomass have any value?
Not sure about these questions? Then you need to pay close attention to my answer which is…

Returns from Jatropha Biomass can EXCEED returns from sale of Jatropha Oil.

That’s a pretty big claim to be making, especially since most Jatropha growers currently plant and harvest Jatropha seeds primarily for its oil for use as biodiesel feedstock and power generation.  However, consider this, jatropha oil only accounts for a mere 14% of the usable resources in every Jatropha plant!

There are a select group of Jatro-entrepreneurs who are now recognising the value of ‘waste’ like biomass and seedcake, and at 2nd JatrophaWorld Africa we reveal how your Jatropha business can profit from using Jatropha Residues (Fruit Shell 30%, Seed Husks 26%, Kernel 30%).

We have invited two leading researchers to share perspectives on how they are using Jatropha Seedcake and Other Biomass for a variety of innovative applications. On the agenda:

  • BENEFITS OF BIO-DIGESTER AND MINI POWER PLANTS FROM JATROPHA BIOMASS & SEEDCAKE
    Presented by: William Nolten, CEO, Waterland International
  • JATROPHA PROTEIN PRODUCTS FOR TECHNICAL APPLICATIONS
    – Jatropha Curcas using the Bio-refinery Concept
    – Jatropha protein extraction from seed cake at room temperature
    – Improving protein extraction at room temperature by using multi-stage countercurrent extraction
    – Film-forming properties of Jatropha protein products
    – Future outlook
    Presented by: Dianika Lestari, Researcher, Wageningen University and Research Centre

We have also invited a leading expert to share insights on the benefits of using Pure Jatropha Oil as a fuel, a topic of great value for Jatropha business owners working with some of the world’s most isolated and poorest communities.

On the agenda:

PURE JATROPHA OIL FUEL – IMPROVING JATROPHA BUSINESS EFFICIENCY
– Advantages of using of Jatropha oil as a fuel in its pure form
– Engine conversion technology
– Oil extraction plants producing fuel grade Jatropha fuel; plant driven on Jatropha oil
Presented by: James Scruby, Director, Viridesco and Elsbett AG

Are you up to meeting the challenge of creating a global supply chain for Jatropha? …

Practical TIP 8 – Establish Offtake Infrastructure for Optimised Distribution of Jatropha products.

Establishing a global Jatropha supply chain and logistics standards is one of the key challenges the Jatropha industry is facing today. And this is a challenge that we in the Jatropha industry are stepping up to meet.

If you are seeking to secure a supply of Jatropha oil or seeds for your own heating, power or biodiesel project, or want to step up your own Jatropha supply chain, you should be at 2nd JatrophaWorld Africa.

We have taken on the challenge of highlighting some of the key issues and challenges in Jatropha Supply Chain & Logistics Management out in the open for discussion and debate in our ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSION on the establishment of offtake infrastructure.

As Jatropha heads into the commercialisation stage in the next five years, the points raised at this crucial discussion will align the industry to rise above the logistical challenges facing Jatropha.

Still confused about optimizing Jatropha cultivation? R&D can help…

Practical TIP 9 – Understand latest research into optimising & domesticating Jatropha.

Jatropha Curcas L is an ‘energy species’, but it needs further ‘domestication’ for successful commercial cultivation & application. While domesticating corn took over 6000 years, technology and research is accelerating the process for the Jatropha plant in leaps and bounds.
If you’re looking to integrate some of the latest research into optimising and domesticating Jatropha for cultivation, you can get an objective overview at 2nd JatrophaWorld Africa!
