Controversies on Jatropha Water-Footprint, Jatropha Cultivation for Biofuel in Tanzania and More on Jatropha Oil Shared by Jatro-Entrepreneur Ruud Van Eck.
Date:8/10/2009

zania was not included in the study, and that grown sustainably, Jatropha does not have as high a water footprint as publicized.

In East Africa, Tanzania and Ethiopia have the largest Jatropha cultivation projects. There is also emerging interest in growing Jatropha for biofuel in Kenya and Uganda, with many small scale projects already established.

Mr. Van Eck also shared his down-to-earth insights and helpful facts on the following issues including:

- What lies ahead for the Jatropha industry?
- Why he chose Tanzania to grow Jatropha?
- Why he chose a Jatropha out grower system over a centralised Jatropha plantation model?
- The challenges and rewards of working on Jatropha in Tanzania.
- Niche Buyers of Jatropha Oil in the market today.
- Benchmarking a price for Jatropha oil.

Mr. Van Eck constantly emphasized his strong conviction for sustainable Jatropha cultivation and the future of it for biofuel, and said, "in order for Jatropha to be sustainable, it should NOT be grown in places that can be used to grow food crops."

His message of sustainable Jatropha cultivation will resonate strongly at the upcoming 2nd JatrophaWorld Africa, which concentrates on optimizing the efficiency and economics of Jatropha, while adhering to sustainability standards. The conference is part of the world's largest and most influential Jatropha conference series, JatrophaWorld, which has seen participation from over 1700 jatropha stakeholders from industries ranging from plantation owners, jatropha cultivation, jatropha oil producers, biofuel producers, jatropha investors, agrobiotech, technology & machine suppliers and many more from 92 countries.

2nd JatrophaWorld Africa will provide a series of practical tips to Jatro-Entrepreneurs seeking more information on converting their Jatropha cultivation projects for successful Jatropha commercialization. It will also offer insights on upcoming susta
