JATROPHA - MAP

Cleantech Investor has published Infocus: Jatropha, a special supplement, in conjunction with Cleantech magazine.

The supplement includes a Jatropha map, which is also available in interactive format. To view the interactive version of the map click here::

Indigenous to Central America, jatropha grows widely around the world in tropical regions. It can grow on degraded land, and recent studies have indicated a potential land bank of around 30 million hectares worldwide which could be suitable for cultivating jatropha. This land is primarily in South America, Africa and Asia. Longer term there is also scope for large scale commercial plantations of jatropha in countries such as Brazil and Australia.

Outside of jatropha growing regions, biodiesel refineries which will use crude jatropha oil as a feedstock are being constructed in Singapore and Belgium.
