Where is your 360 000 acres of jatropha situated? cos I don't think you'd get jatropha into Aus', and I have travelled far and wide to various jatropha projects which claim to have planted these vast acreages, but when I get there I find that this is what is planned and only much smaller areas are actually planted. The process you describe sounds interesting, where can I get more info? I am just about to plant fairly large areas of bio-fuel crops in Africa, and am trying to decide the best ones to use. If your technology is good, it could mean not having to plant invasive species like jatropha.

I do agree with Mr. Riley's comments. The lacuna between estimated acreage and actual acreage is huge. I am a biofuels specialist and inventor of a process myself.

i have to agree with you dave, i have yet to come across any commercial scale jatropha farm in asia we started growing several species of jatropha curcas in our experimental farm in vietnam. our next step is to start a 15000 ha farm hopefully in mid 2009

Mission's plantation is actually in India. Although it's HQ is situated in Australia, the actual plant is in Malaysia. You are correct in saying Australia would never allow Jatropha onto its lands :) Overall Mission has a very sound approach. Cheap labour and subsidies from Malaysia and huge labour force in India, which also helps to provide work for farmers.

How can some one trust on the claims of ethano pilot plant, no place of pilot plant operation in india is mentioned at all and it looks like all of a sudden claim for the process has ben made.
