Global Pongamia Biodiesel World 2016 Discuss Enhanced Economics & Better Break-even

Industry: Biotechnology

Pongamia Pinnata trees must be regarded as a sure source of 2nd Generation Biodiesel and the foundation around which a profitable Business plan can be built

Jaipur, India (PRUnderground) January 5th, 2016

Ground-breaking Indian research on the viability of Pongamia Biodiesel has been released Projecting a Path for Permanent Progress & Prosperity, at the culmination of almost ten years of work by The Advanced Biofuel Center (ABC).The results of the unique study as part of the center’s ongoing research and development programmes on nonfood biodiesel crops and technologies..

Researchers at the ABC- Advanced Biofuel Center, based in India, looked at the agronomy, harvesting engineering and associated financial viability of Pongamia Biodiesel production.

The work involved detailed techno-economic modeling of the processes to convert oily seeds from a tree called Pongamia from plantation to production of biodiesel. The results showed that using current proven technologies, the Pongamia Biodiesel would be economically competitive with crude oil as well as with all Liquid biofuels.

While the research showed Pongamia Biodiesel processes still require research and innovation to become economically viable for use in jets compared to existing fuels, the aim was to identify research priorities that will have the largest impact on lowering the price. These priorities include: development of high yielding planting stock, Enhanced agronomy to producing Pongamia seeds with higher oil content; and engineering to covert oil into biodiesel.

A major Pongamia Biodiesel research effort is underway around the world that could also yield additional breakthroughs to further lower the costs.

President of ABC, Mr. DP Maharshi said: “The research contributes testable numbers and models to the debate – and provides guidance on where researchers may wish to concentrate efforts to make the biggest impacts on reducing the price of the Pongamia Biodiesel.”

“This research is a major step forward in understanding the unique feedstock opportunities and how they might be commercialized in the future.”

“The commercialization of Pongamia Biodiesel is a key priority for ABC and we look forward to continuing to work together with our partners to enable a strong and viable Pongamia Biodiesel industry worldwide.”

The knowledge our scientists have gained will help with future research and also helps us understand what is required to develop a future advanced Pongamia Biodiesel industry.”

Success in making Pongamia Biodiesel viable would allow the agricultural industries in number of countries to diversify their product portfolios, with the potential for new manufacturing plants in rural areas.

The Status, scope and strategies   shall be shared and discussed with the attendees of GLOBAL PONGAMIAWORLD 2016 scheduled in April 2016. This is a NOT to be MISSED Opportunity to new growers to start Biodiesel Business

About Advanced Biofuel Center

About Advanced Biofuel Center

Advanced Biofuel Center (ABC) conducts advanced multi-feedstock research in the industry’s non-food energy farming crop improvement programme and addresses the complete value chain. As a producer of proprietary seeds, ABC is in the most attractive segment of the biodiesel value chain — upstream from the capital intensive refining and conversion of biodiesel.
ABC’s goal is to triple dedicated biodiesel crop yields within 10 years, increase the oil content to 48% and, in combination with other crops, target an oil yield that is 1500 gallon per hectare. Researchers also hope to increase the quality of the oils and other products produced—while minimizing inputs including pesticides and fertilizers.
At ABC, the dedicated biodiesel crop curcas plants’ biology and genetic profile have been subjected to intense scrutiny, as molecular and genetic scientists collaborate with agronomists to breed and develop cultivars suitable for large scale fuel farming. Traditional breeding, inter-species hybridisation, genetic modification, and advanced cloning techniques are all being applied to produce new commercial cultivars.
Enhanced cultivar and seeds
After 11 years of continuous research and experiments in cultivating and breeding dedicated biodiesel crop curcas and other biofuel crops, ABC has developed a systematic breeding and cultivar development strategy. Newly bred cultivars are extensively tested in multi-location trials and true to type seeds are being produced using the organization’s improved seed product line. Improved seeds result in greater yield, uniformity and vigour while significantly reducing plantation costs for growers. JCLMax3, MOMAX, DI03SAP etc improved varieties have been tested and developed for a range of climatic and soil conditions.
ABC’s dedicated biodiesel crop agronomy knowledge platform focuses on ‘plantation technologies’ and has run an agronomy research programme alongside the breeding programme that looks into all agronomy issues.ABC further share and distribute its knowledge and expertise through its knowledge arm Biodiesel Business Academy
ABC scientists are continuously working on enhanced genetics, agronomics and horticulture sciences to drive new varieties, more knowledge around the plant’s nutritional requirements and more science-based processes for the care and custody of the plant.
Balancing resources to create a sustainable long-term solution without harming the environment is the challenge. The focus must remain on balancing the three major areas—genetics, agronomics and horticulture practices—so the plant will grow with optimal productivity.
We are confident that scientific advancements can demonstrate, preserve, and enhance biodiesel\\\\’s ability to help meet the food, feed, fiber, and energy needs of the future.
We have a state-of-the-symbolization base that is generally outfitted with cutting-edge innovation based apparatus and world class conveniences. We have isolated our office into numerous divisions to guarantee that greatest conceivable operational proficiency is accomplished.


Moinga India is making huge efforts, experiments, research to harness the harnessing the “superfood” powers of Moringa oleifera, a drought-resistant tree native to North India and widely used throughout the topics for in solving this global problem. Moringa shows great promise as a tool to help overcome some of the most severe problems in the developing world—malnutrition, deforestation, impure water and poverty. The tree does best in the dry regions where these problems are worst. Green leafy vegetables and fruits supply much needed essential micro-nutrients like beta-carotene [vitamin A], vitamin C, folic acid, and also calcium and potassium. Moringa leaves in particular are a rich, inexpensive source of micro-nutrients. Although few people have ever heard of it today, Mission Moringa India is to establish the Moringa to become one of the world’s most valuable plants, at least in humanitarian terms Moringa India has been formed to identify the factors limiting the adoption and use of the Moringa Tree for Agricultural Development for Producing Biodiesel and to explore the important role Moringa play in the lives of rural people and the global economy deliberating advancement of existing and future agricultural development projects. It’s experience, expertise, and views about Moringa and its use for agriculture development for the purposes of reducing hunger and poverty and formulate strategies for developing moringa failsafe farms and also helps new growers to have holistic information on moringa crop with academic research activities in Agronomy, Horticulture, and Biology, industrial practices in biofuels , Marketing and Financial aspects of Moringa commercialization. It will be a great pleasure to share the up-to-date advances in both fundamental researches and engineering practices, and to project the areas where we may contribute to to harness the full potential of moringa for betterment of people and planet Moringa India is one of the largest growers of Moringa Oleifera and maintains Moringa farms in scientific manner. With its extensive experiences in the field, enhanced technology, plant science & professional knowledge, effective consulting service and business intelligence, Moringa India has developed a set of tools/service to develop Moringa business from soil to superfood, from farming to fuel
