Global Jatropha World 3.0 Integrated Nonfood Biodiesel Farming & Technology Training Programme 2014

October 9, 2014 -- India. – CJP – the advanced biofuel center will host a meeting in India  on opportunities and available technology for 'second generation' Biodiesel crops crops such as Jatropha, Jojoba, Castor bean, Pongamia, Moringa , Simarouba and Algae.

The 7th Global Jatropha World 3.0 Integrated Nonfood Biodiesel Farming & Technology Training Programme which shall be held November 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.

7th Biodiesel CropSphere 2014 is to be held at Jaipur, Rajasthan from November 24-28, 2014. CJP has brought together 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 dedicated fuel crops and alternative energy and also learn about other most important nonfood biodiesel as referred herein from experts.

7th Biodiesel CropSphere 2014 will showcase agricultural advancement to grow the nonfood oil crops effectively with proper resources i.e. balancing resources to end up with a sustainable long-term solution without harming the environment. The focus of the programme shall remain on three major thrust areas—genetics, agronomics and horticulture practices—so the plant will grow with optimal productivity. While agronomic work is an important first step in the development of any new crop, for new oilseeds to reach commercialization, several other factors need to be addressed. With any of these crops, there is definitely an education curve for producers to be able to understand how it fits into their rotation

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 energy farming.

The GM Advanced Biofuel Center Mr. DP Maharshi stressed the importance of providing education on second-generation Biodiesel sources such as Jatropha, Jojoba, Pongamia, Moringa, Simarouba, etc.. He said the meeting will be helpful to, agribusiness professionals, Extension educators, , energy entrepreneurs, biofuel refinery employees and others interested in biofuels.
