Abstract:

SG Biofuels CEO Kirk Haney will speak to the myths and realities of Jatropha, and reveal how understanding the unique characteristics of Jatropha – its opportunities and limitations – is a critical component of any successful Jatropha project. Through more than three years of research and evaluation of recent failures with the crop, Haney focuses on the three key elements that are necessary for the success of Jatropha: -- Crop improvement through science and genetics -- Proven plantation management practices – planting in the right climates and appropriate soils and proper agronomic techniques -- Creation of a viable supply chain and business model
