Can 100% of Moringa Biodiesel Project be Commercially Viable? Expert Shares Surprising Facts About Moringa Business on 24 & 25 September in Global Moringa Meet 2016 in India
4th Global Moringa Meet planned in India aim to provide interested parties with knowledge and information related to development of sustainable biodiesel industry. The Advanced Biofuel Center(ABC) is hosting the 2 days international Training Programme in Jaipur, India September, 24-25, 2016.
Among those searching for solutions to feed the hungry, Moringa is well known. The introduction of Moringa leaf crop has lead to flourish malnourished children in developing countries, which provides protein, vitamins and minerals in their diets. ABC has quietly been investigating another potential feedstock, Moringa oleifera, because it could serve as food and an oil source for biodiesel.
Entrepreneurs around the globe are finding new ways to monetize the Moringa plant thanks to the pioneering research of Moringa expert at Moringa India shares how easy it is to utilize 100% of the Moringa plant for food, health, fodder, feed, biodiesel and other profit generating revenue streams.
A time when many industries are shrinking or closing down altogether, Moringa plantation and value addition management continues to expand and grow. For one, Moringa has proven itself as a s source of human food and as an alternative energy resource. Renowned Moringa expert are discovering how to take 100% advantage of the Moringa plant. For example, our research reveals that Moringa seedcake and biomass revenues can exceed returns from the sale of Moringa oil/Biodiesel. In groundbreaking presentation, "Utilization Technology of Moringa Biomass, Seedcake and Residues," The 4th Global Moringa Meet (GMM16) 0n 24-25, September at Jaipur, India shares some startling revelations about the future of Moringa and growing Moringa.
Moringa as a source of biodiesel
The oil from the Moringa tree is a more sustainable biodiesel feedstock as it can yield both food and fuel. Among those searching for solutions to feed the hungry, Moringa is well known. Malnourished children flourish with the introduction of the nutritious Moringa leaf crop, which provides protein, vitamins and minerals in their diets. The greatest potential for this species is currently thought to be in its cultivation for the production of biodiesel. Yields of about 20 metric tons of pods per hectare per year are achievable for this species. This would equate to between 3000 and 4000 liters of biodiesel per hectare per annum. It is particularly desirable because it is a very low water-use crop and may be cultivated on marginal land commercially
Food v Fuel & Moringa
Globally, about 870 million people do not have enough to eat, and more than two billion suffer from micronutrient deficiency, according to United Nations (UN) food agencies. The Moringa tree is increasingly considered as one of the world's most valuable natural resources, as the main constituents of the tree have several nutritive ingredients. Its leaves, pods and flowers are considered good sources of vitamins A, B, B2, B3, B6 and C, folic acid, ascorbic acid, beta-carotene, calcium, iron, and amino acids. More importantly, its leaves are highly nutritious; being a significant source of beta-carotene, vitamin C, protein, iron and potassium Arial. Moringa oleifera is an essential plant in meeting global food security and sustain the livelihoods of many millions of people.
Yield Estimates: Moringa oleifera
Optimal yield 1st year
Seed yield 9 tons
Oil (36% of Yield) ton 3.2 ton
Biodiesel ton 3.2 ton
ILUC discussion and Moringa
Many studies have shown there is enough land available to produce more food, more feed and more biofuels. Though the discussion of indirect land use change (ILUC) caused by biofuels is not scientifically supported, the Moringa does not causes land use change. Contrary to it Moringa is targeted for marginal lands which are unproductive. Most importantly it is food crop and same time it yields biodiesel- a perfect answer to the unscientific discussion
Biodiesel can make a large contribution to the world's future energy requirements; this is a resource we cannot ignore. The challenge is to harness it on an environmentally and economically manner and without compromising food security.
