Moringa: "Miracle Tree" Project, Mozambique SOLD OUT
In the United States, a fledgling effort in the biodiesel industry has quietly been investigating Moringa Oleifera.
-Susanne Retka Schill, Biodiesel Magazine
The Moringa Oleifera is better known as the "Miracle Tree" or the “Tree of Life” - and you don't need to do much more than google it in order to see first-hand how many organisations advocate the use of Moringa for its medicinal and nutritional benefits.
What separates this tree from other biomass foodstocks is by far the invaluable effects it has on humans. The leaves, roots and pods are edible and are being used worldwide to aid in the fight against malnutrition in developing countries.
And whilst the oil has traditionally also been used as a lubricant for fine machinery and as a vegetable cooking oil; leaders in the biomass field are now turning to Moringa as an alternative foodstock for the production of biodiesel.
The biodiesel made from Moringa is also believed to have better oxidative stability than biodiesel made with most other feedstocks.
"M. oleifera oil has a high content of oleic acid (>70%)...as a result, the methyl esters (biodiesel) obtained from this oil exhibit a high cetane number of approximately 67, one of the highest found for a biodiesel fuel."
The Moringa Tree
Moringa is considered "low maintenance" compared to other foodstocks. Its low demand for soil nutrients and water after being planted make its production and management easy according to experts and researchers such as Mr. Nikolaus Foidl.
Whilst this project has now sold out, click below to find out more about why this unique opportunity was so successful.
