Jatropha oil has long been heralded as an environmentally and socially friendly alternative energy source. However, as Jatropha moves closer to commercialization, better understanding of the Jatropha Curcas plant, proper plantation management for Jatropha expansion and Jatropha funding need to be addressed for Jatropha projects to perform at maximum productivity.

JatrophaWorld Hamburg 2008 will provide a platform for Jatropha investors, venture capitalists, financiers, government officials, agronomists and biodiesel producers from all four corners of the globe to discuss several key success strategies that include:

+ Choosing the best location for Jatropha projects in terms of local legislation, funding, agro-climatic conditions, labor and logistics.

+ Adopting best practices in Jatropha Agronomy and Processing for maximum income returns.

+ Setting up a profitable Jatropha plantation.

+ Mapping global biofuel blending specifications and demand for Jatropha oil.

+ Complete utilization of Jatropha Curcas L, including biowaste and seedcake.

+ Evaluating risk for a realistic view of Jatropha project potential for long-term forecasting.

+ Meeting and networking with strategic people to attract expertise, investors and government support for Jatropha projects.

'Best Practices for Long-term Jatropha Development,' the update to Dr. R. Rajagopal's highly successful November 2007 position paper 'Sustainable Biodiesel Feedstock: Jatropha: A Strategic Option' is expected to be a hot topic of discussion at JatrophaWorld Hamburg 2008.

In his topical paper, Dr. R. Rajagopal states that for Jatropha to reach its full potential as a viable alternative energy source, "land resource management, water management and cultivation practices need better understanding in light of reported variations in Jatropha practices worldwide."

A highlight of JatrophaWorld Hamburg 2008 is the Jatropha Practitioner Workshop that will provide a practical approach to setting up and running a Jatropha project. During the workshop, a panel of experienced Jatropha practitioners from Asia, Africa and South America will present Jatropha planting best practices for plantation set up and management.
