Jatropha Curcas? Look to India and McCarthy Hill

Posted by Business in Ghana on March 22, 2009

Our challenge to produce biodiesel from Jatropha Curcas in Ghana is not a matter of science, but rather a question of supply to continuously meet the demand of vehicular and heavy duty equipment. Like all other large scale plantation projects, undertaking a Jatropha Curcas plantation project requires efficient organisation and management of a wide range of variable parameters such as identifying development costs, calculating gestation periods and yield potentials. Besides, there is also a requirement for sourcing processing machinery that can provide high levels of performance.

  3. I heard of this plant long time ago. I was recently wondering what had become of it only to read this article this morning. I think a nationwide campaign should be made for everyone of us to plant even if in small quantity at our backyard. That is if a board will be made for its purchase. Thanks.
