Biodiesel From Jatropa
Sunday, June 22, 2008
Biodiesel and biofuel...believe or not they are huge business. It is one type of renewable energy that has gain interest from fellow researchers, technologist, engineers, scientists, politicians, investors etc few years ago. Since then, many people began planting the likes of palm oil, rape seed, soya been etc to produce biodiesel. However, recently, there had been issues on food supply shortage and thus this has contributed to the increase price of the crops.
How can we use palm oil, rape seed and soya been to produce biodiesel when we know that the food supply for the world is insufficient? We need those crops for food, to feed human, not for energy!
Hence, the world has turned to a species of tree called jatropa. Why jatropa? Simply because it is non-edible. It cannot be consumed by humans. In addition to that, it has high content of oil. Now, a lot of countries such as Brazil, Malaysia, Thailand and others are encouraging their farmers to grow jatropa for biodiesel. Infact, in Malaysia, Bionas was established to facilitate everything associated to jatropa from planting them to processing them in a refinery.
To have a better comprehension on the subjects, please check out the following videos.
Video synopsis: Brazil is the world's leading country in BioFuels! Over 30 years ago in order to find a renewable and greener source of fuel, the Brazilian Government started the "Ethanol Boom" and has been successful ever since; for today, 8 out of 10 cars manufactured in Brazil have the so called "Flex Power" engines. These engines can run both in Alcohol Ethanol as well as with gasoline in any blend
This video shows Conatus team go to Taubate, Sao Paulo state, Brazil to check on the regional jathropa plantation project. Called Pinhao-Manso in Portuguese, Jathropa could be what sugar cane is for ethanol to biodiesel.
So, you have seen the videos and you should notice how great jatropa will become. It will be a huge business. There will be massive research and development to optimize the entire process. Farmers and those who have association with jatropa can expect good fortune in future. What about those who are not associated with jatropa? Can they earn a piece of the fortune?
