MORINGA OLEIFERA
 

CJP is dedicated to the development of oil seed bearing trees [OSBT] - non-food multiple vegetable oil plantation and technologies in order to reduce Dependence on fossil fuels, bring greater control and security of fuel supply and reduce dangerous climate changing emissions, including CO2. CJP’s Jatropha and other non-food oil crop plantation program. With an effort to ‘grow beyond oil ‘, apart from Jatropha, CJP has identified, developed and cultivated as many as 12 oil seed bearing trees [OSBT] and non-food oil crops. With years of continuing research, experiments and trials has provided an adage to find and develop 2nd generation biodiesel feedstock with low cost input technology. After having a number of successful field trials CJP has honor to establish Moringa oleifera - another potential feedstock for Bio- Diesel industry of future because it could serve as food and an oil source for biodiesel.

Moringa oleifera is a very fast growing tree; it commonly reaches four meters in height just 10 months after the seed is planted and can bear fruit within its first year. Its pods are triangular in cross-section (30 to 50 cm long) and legume-like in appearance. These pods have oil rich black and winged seeds, which can be crushed to produce biodiesel. Moringa could yield +3 ton oil per ha and that it could be used for food in times of shortages. The seeds contain 30 percent to 40 percent oil that is high in oleic acid. The meal yields about 61 percent protein. Biodiesel made from Moringa has better oxidative stability than biodiesel made with most other feedstocks the crop’s multiple dimensions would make it attractive to farmers worldwide. It does produce a lot of seed, and it produces well in areas that need income. Other than biodiesel, the pods can also produce edible (in fact, highly nutritious) seeds and leaves. In addition, some parts of the plant have medicinal purposes, and the sap can potentially be used as a dye. Their pods are harvested, meaning that the trees keep on growing, using water and reducing the high water table whilst sequestrating carbon.

Considering Moringa’s potential as an oilseed feedstock for biodiesel CJP has honor to establish this untapped resource as alternative source for Bio- Diesel industry of future.

The Moringa oleifera trees must be regarded as a sure source of 2nd Generation Biodiesel and the foundation around which a profitable Business plan can be built for its ability to provide large amount of oil and its pure hardiness and stress handling ability. The Moringa oleifera tree that has enough credentials: a higher recovery and quality of oil than other crops, no direct competition with food crops as it is a edible source of fuel, and no direct competition with existing farmland as can be grown for both purpose same time
