The oil from the Drumstick tree known as Moringa tree is considered to be a more sustainable biodiesel feedstock as it can yield both food and fuel. Among those searching for solutions to feed the hungry, Moringa is well known. Malnourished children flourish with the introduction of the nutritious Moringa leaf crop, which provides protein, vitamins and minerals in their diets. The Moringa tree is native to India and grown in tropical and subtropical regions across Asia, Africa and South America. It is also grown as an ornamental tree in the southern United States.
The Drumstick (Moringa oleifera) is an essential plant in meeting global food security and sustain the livelihoods of many millions of people. Climate change provides both opportunities and challenges for attaining the potential contribution of the wonderful tree for sustainable human development. Strategies need to be developed to address key issues in productivity, crop plant-soil/water/energy resources management, and postharvest utilization as food and feed, nutritional and health value addition, and trade and commercialization, so that the role of Moringa in ensuring sustainable development can be enhanced. On realizing the potentiality of moringa as a nutritional security provider and the high value energy crop, much importance is attached globally and this is the right time to gear up for research and development activities to reap its fullest potential. Aiming at promotion of the international exchange and cooperation in above mentioned fields 2 day Global Moringa Meet(GMM 12) on November 25 & 26 , 2012 shall provide new insight in the potentiality of this crop for future exploitation and formulate strategies for developing moringa failsafe farms and also helps new growers to have holistic information on moringa crop.
A combination of low yielding Moringa varieties, the absence of effective crop management, and high plant mortality during the planting phase, contributes to sub-optimal yields. Moringa investors and crop research institutes are continuously studying modern high-yielding varieties developed by breeding programs, under ideal climatic conditions in Africa, Asia, and America etc. Experts at Center for Jatropha Promotion & Biodiesel (CJP) are pursuing the unique suitability of all parts of the plant for a wide range of practical purposes ranging from agricultural to medicinal to fuel. The GMM 12 provides an opportunity for experts from around the world to meet and address this agenda.
The Scope of GMM 12 will cover the academic research activities in Agronomy, Horticulture, and Biology, industrial practices in biofuels and bioenergy technology, and food biotechnology Engineering, Marketing and Financial aspects of Moringa commercialization.
“If you are an investor interested to develop Moring plantations, the MoringaMeet 2012 is an ideal meet for you.

Biodiesel business academy introduces farmers FUEL Initiative
While farmers are continuing to produce safe, abundant, and affordable food, feed, and fiber, the rising cost of fuel and power making most growers to explore opportunities to save energy. A variety of programs and technologies are available to reduce energy use for different components of agriculture. We at Biodiesel Business Academy (BBA) have been engaged in finding a sustainable solution for a small farmer. A survey was conducted to accurately estimate the fuel requirement of a small farmer for growing and harvesting the crops including livestock production. Based on the findings of the survey a tiny biodiesel production system @farmers farm was designed and constructed.
BBA is happy to present an excellent System to process & produce Biodiesel at Farmers Farm to meet out daily requirement of fuel. The fuel requirement of a small farmer is estimated 80-110 liters per acre. With a population/plantation of minimum 50 trees of Pongamia Pinnata in farm or at boundary an amount of 500 liters fuel can be produced apart from enough biofertilizer for crops with marginal cost. This not only ensures climate smart farming but also provide small farmer a liberty to do things in sustainable way
State of Art Small scale Biodiesel Production at Farm
Produce your own fresh fuel directly on-farm.
BBA Oilseed Pressing and Biodiesel Reactor Systems add value to your crops by extracting oil directly on your farm. BBA Systems extract oil through natural, mechanical means, producing a high quality and stable oil that makes for an excellent on-farm fuel. We have invented a Tiny Biodiesel Reactor to produce 10-20 liters Biodiesel as per farmers daily/weekly/monthly Fuel needs.

CJP , the Centre for Jatropha Promotion & Biodiesel ‘s new Nonfood Biodiesel crops like algae, castor, moringa, pongamia, jojoba, simarouba, Mahua, flax, kenaf, Calophyllum etc. are poised for commercialization as the newest, greatest biodiesel feedstock as these crops can produce the greatest amount of feedstock for the lowest input and cost. Good scientific research done by CJP’s scientists has shown that how oilseed crops grow best across different soil conditions and climates, and how they fit into existing production systems determining what consequences might result from growing these crops in terms of sustainability.
The Nonfood energy crops not only produce Biodiesel but also hold particular promise for improving local economies and environments. Nonfood energy crops can be integrated into the farming systems of smallholders and subsistence farmers on marginal land boundaries and in other under-utilized spaces delivering a cash crop opportunity to rural communities. It holds enormous potential for farmers in the near future—especially for the two-thirds of the people in the developing world who derive their incomes from agriculture. Farmers that produce dedicated energy crops can grow their incomes and grow their own supply of affordable and reliable energy.
Having specialized in all fields of Nonfood energy crops Production related Technologies, Biodiesel Business Academy (BBA), an arm of CJP has specifically developed and designed a unique kit for Nonfood energy crops plantation and crop care for 1 hectare called: “Nonfood energy crops Agri- Extension” Kit”– a key to your fuel farm " just enable & encourage the farmers/ new growers to start the Nonfood energy crops crop cultivation in a right and prefect manner by adopting the concept of “sustainable agriculture”.
