"Investors should be going toward clean technologies, the world is going to move toward a low-carbon future. That is inevitable."
Rajendra Pachauri, Chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)

Investing in Biofuels

"Biomass plants have the potential to yield much higher returns than other renewable sources: a well executed biomass plant can deliver substantially greater economies of scale than wind, and the heat generated from incineration can supply neighbouring buildings, creating another revenue stream."
Andy Cox, energy partner at KPMG (UK)

Moringa Oleifera as Biofuel

  • Higher recovery and quality of oil than other crops which allows for lower cost processing while producing the highest grade of Biodiesel and Glycerine by-product
  • No direct competition with food crops as it is an edible source of fuel
  • No direct competition with farm land as it can be grown for both purposes at the same time and it thrives in land where most agricultural produce would not survive
  • The oil from the Moringa tree is considered to be a more sustainable biodiesel feedstock than jatropha oil by those who argue that sustainability is better served by feedstocks that can yield both food and fuel.
