Jatropha plants have the added advantage of being able to grow on degraded land and in areas considered marginal for arable use. Jatropha biofuel production improves soil health, respects water resources and reverses land degradation. Jatropha enjoys a cost and carbon efficiency superior to all other biofuels and is an important solution for the substitution of fossil fuels and the self-sustainability of village communities. Jatropha biofuel plantations contribute to climate change mitigation by significantly reducing lifecycle GHG emissions as compared to fossil fuels. Jatro’s unique plantation model optimizes land use and promotes the symbiosis of food and fuel while supporting bio-diversity and respecting the ecological balance.
