Biofules from Jatropha Curcas is another alternative energy source.  Do you know that the nut grown from the wonder tree – Jatropha can produce fuels for our cars?    It may help to solve our energy crisis to replace fossil fuels.  The fuels produced by the Jatropha have the same properties as diesel and you do not have to modify your car to use it.

Here is a video explaining how Jatropha Curcas fruit can solve the energy crisis and  what the scientist from Nandan Biomatrix is trying to solve the problem with Jatropha flowers.


Although the oil from the fruit is highly suitable as a fuel alternative to the burning the coal in power plants, the Jatropha tree and its fruits are toxic if eaten by human being and animals.  Jatropha fruit contains more energy than coal by weight.

Jatropha is a hardy tree that thrives in hot, dry climates and have been grown in many countries.  One acre of Jatropha Curcas can yield between 600 to 1,000 gallons of oil per year.  The waste bi-product of the Jatropha Curcas seed can be used as a rich organic fertilizer.

Many experiments are being carry out in the countries such as African countries, Brazil, China, India, Malaysia and the Phillipines for the blending Jatropha biofuel with petrol or diesel to reduce carbon emissions and save money.

If you like to own  Jatropha Curcas plantation as your investments and help the environment for better future generations, there are a lot of opportunities there for you to invest.
