Jatropha Curcas: The Holy Grail of Bio-fuels


  • Successfully Tested as Diesel Fuel
  • Smoke-free
  • Grows almost anywhere
  • Can stand long periods of drought
  • Suitable for preventing soil erosion and shifting of sand dunes
  • Jatropha trees are productive for up to 30-40 years.
  • 2,200 trees can be planted per hectare (approx 1,000 per acre).
  • 1 hectare should yield around 7 tonnes of seeds per year.
  • The oil pressed from 4kg of seeds is needed to make 1 litre of biodiesel.
