Bio-Diesel

jatropha

Today in the world the fast diminishing reserves of fossil fuel together with the rising awareness of the environment, concerns of increasing levels of green house gas emissions have led to strenuous efforts in the search of environmentally friendly alternative energy sources. As the human population grows and the oil resources are exhausted it is evident that the price for oil will increase and the economies of scale will be affected which in return will affect the economy of a country. The recent oil prices crossing the $100 mark is a good indicator for us to realize the uncertainty of the oil market which gravely effects world economies in recent times. Billions of dollars are spent on imports of oil.

It is high time we realize that if we don’t reduce our dependence on oil we will continue to expose ourselves to the uncertainty of the oil market and the depleting oil and gas resources. It thus becomes crucial that we look for alternatives for sharing the dependency on foreign oil and in the process improve our environment and economy.

The developing nations see bio-fuel as a fuel alternative which also encourages ways to develop rural areas, create jobs and save precious foreign exchange. On the global front especially in Europe the use of methyl esters as diesel has gained widespread acceptance. In fact bio-fuel derived from rapeseed oil is being produced at a sizeable scale in Europe. The demand in Europe is also likely to considerably increase from 3 million tons in 2005 to 10 million tons in 2010. It is also important to note that the EU has set targets for the transport industries in the member countries to use 10% bio-fuels by the year 2020. Meanwhile countries like the United States, India, Brazil and Japan have launched their own programs in developing bio-fuel industry at home. Some countries like Korea and Thailand have followed the EU model to set specific targets for bio-fuel implementation. India alone has identified 66 million hectors of land for the plantation of Jatropha a non edible plant which can grow in harsh conditions to produce bio-diesel. India plans to replace 5% of its current 40 million tons annual consumption of diesel by using diesel derived from Jatropha plant with in 5 years. Furthermore India is targeting to produce 20% of its diesel consumption to be produced by bio-fuel by the year 2017.

EES is one of the pioneers in development of bio-diesel in Pakistan and the Gulf region. We provide total solutions to farmers, investors and oil producers to maximize the use of bio-diesel using Jatropha, Castor and other seeds to produce high quality bio-diesel.
