Worldwide renewable energy investment of $150 billion in 2009 represented nearly 40 percent of annual investment in the upstream oil and gas industry, which topped $380 billion And renewable accounted for about 57 percent of global investment in power generation of all forms in 2009, estimated at $320 billion. At a time when the world’s headlines are dominated by a deep-water oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, coal mine accidents, and gyrating fuel prices, renewable energy is rare good news to a very different energy system that will begin to emerge over the next decade. To ensure it , political leaders will need to continue enacting additional and effective policies, engineers and scientists will need to continue creating new technologies, and businesses will need to continue investing if this bright new future is to be realized. But for those who are paying attention to the trends, there is now good reason to be optimistic that hard work and dedication will be rewarded in the near future—and this knowledge will itself fuel the future

The world needs affordable and clean energy to fuel economic growth, development, and democracy without harming the environment. Ensuring access to ample, affordable, clean, and sustainable sources of energy is unquestionably one of the greatest challenges facing the modern world. Rapid growth in primary energy consumption, especially in developing countries, and continued deforestation – the single largest source of greenhouse gas emissions – have combined with rising concerns over energy security and climate change, to strengthen demand for renewable energy. Biofuels hold the promise of a viable alternative to oil. They are a solution that could simultaneously provide energy security while dramatically reducing the heat-trapping emissions responsible for climate change. At the same time, these fuels could offer new economic opportunities for rural communities. Not only is energy consumption expected to expand significantly by 2030, but alteration of the fuel mix to reduce reliance on fossil fuels is considered vital to the reduction of greenhouse house gases, which means that the market for environmental assets, renewable energy and clean technologies is truly global. Given such potential benefits, more than 80 countries are investing heavily in biofuels and have established legal requirements to steadily increase the volume consumed each year with Sustainability: Meeting today's needs for environmental stewardship, economic prosperity, and quality of life without compromising future generations' ability to meet these needs for them.

The use and need of biofuel is now more or less established, and recognised worldwide and it appears that biodiesel is the leading alternative fuel coming into prominence

The combination of these factors presents an opportunity for the construction of a diverse, balanced, lucrative portfolio of Biodiesel Properties and carbon assets



Centre for Jatropha Promotion & Biodiesel (BIOBIJALI ) is the Global authority for scientific commercialization of Jatropha & other non-food Biodiesel crops and designs and implements the growing of non-food Biodiesel crops worldwide in a structured Agri-Supply chain, Value additions and research activities thereon & provides technology and services from “Soil to Oil” for the breeding, development, planting and harvesting of next-generation commercial Biodiesel crops.

BIOBIJALI  is dedicated to the development of oil green 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.  BIOBIJALI ’s field-present agronomic teams are responsible for creating the agronomic protocol for crop management as well as the implementation of Integrated Fuel Farming Management System (IFF) which serve as a set of practical ground rules. These continue to prove significantly effective in obtaining higher yields while considerably reducing industry-related risks.BIOBIJALI  is well positioned to play a leading role in the commercialisation of green oil plantation and in sustainable growth in the production of biodiesel and environmental commodities. BIOBIJALI  has extensive on the ground experience in project implementation. The BIOBIJALI  has also strategically attracted and employed market leader executives to expand its management capabilities. BIOBIJALI  can provide the required technical expertise, management capacity, technologies and commercial focus to support widespread green oil operations. By entering a management contract with Project developer/investor/client that will be able to access this expertise and the ensuing Biodiesel Plantation investment opportunities.
