Learn how can Jatropha become sustainable aviation & transport fuel?

June8, 2012, India -- The 5th Global Jatropha Hi-tech Integrated Nonfood Biodiesel Farming & Technology Training Programme which is being held September 5-9, 2012 at Jaipur, , is mostly dedicated to multifeedstocks for building a sustainable biodiesel industry. The JatrophaWorld 2012 is 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 2012 marks the 5th edition with resounding success. 

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.

The CJP for Failsafe Energy Farming (http://www.jatrophabiodiesel.org ) was created in 2003 , the first entity to introduce commercial farming of Jatropha and since then working as a platform for multidisciplinary multifeedstocks research into all aspects of nonfood energy farming. The 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 jatropha 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 So while Jatropha agriculture continues to be a new and exciting alternative energy source, and the world continues to watch its development closely, there are still many misnomers about where it should be grown, how to grow it and what resources the plant needs to achieve commercially productive yields. 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 Jatropha Agricultural Training package to deliver Competencies through Qualified trainers with a practical 'hands on' approach.

CJP’s new Biodiesel crops like castor, flax, 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.

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 JATROPHAWORLD 2012, the 5th Global Jatropha Hi-tech Integrated Nonfood Biodiesel Farming & Technology Training Programme is all set to introduce you the best expertise and brightest brains to discuss and analyze the present and future dynamics of nonfood biodiesel crops. Attendees will be able to increase their knowledge about Jatropha and alternative energy and also learn about other most important nonfood biodiesel as referred herein from experts.

What to expect from next generation biofuels

World biodiesel industry experts anticipate that there is going to be more demand for oilseeds, not only going to biodiesel but also into the technology that can covert those agricultural oils into products such as jet fuel. One of the really good things is biojet fuels and non-ester renewable diesels are all new market opportunities being created, which helps to send market signals all the way up the supply chain to the growers and producers.

JatrophaWorld 2012 promises to have something for everyone interested in developing, growing and utilizing nonfood feedstock for the production of biodiesel. JatrophaWorld 2012 is unique because of the capability to deliver an integrated 'One Stop Solution' for nonfood oil crops Agri-business operations to the agricultural and energy sector worldwide.

JatrophaWorld 2012 will pinpoint the agronomy, technology and economics of Jatropha biofuel projects for your own business needs! Time is winding down and you will want to sign up early as we expect available seats to fill up fast.
