Introduction. Jatropha curcas (Linnaeus) is a multipurpose bush/small tree belonging to the family of is a plant with many attributes, multiple uses and considerable potential.

The plant can be used to prevent and/or control erosion, to reclaim land, grown as a live fence, especially to contain or exclude farm animals and be planted as a commercial by: Jatropha curcas seed oil is the most o ering alternative source of feedstock for biofuel industries.

From Jatropha biofuel plant, some by-products are produced. The main by-products are seed. substitution of diesel oil. Jatropha curcas is a plant of fast growing species and well known specifically for its tolerance to almost most tropical climate and soil types, hence it is suitable for land conservation.

In this study, the biodiesel oil was produced by Jatropha Curcas Oil (JCO) through two stages by: 2.

Enter, Jatropha curcas. Jatropha curcas is a small oleaginous fruit bearing tree from the Euphorbiaceae family that thrives in warm weather and can grow in barren soil.

The oil found in its seeds can be converted into a high quality diesel fuel. Since Jatropha is inedible, it does not compete with food crops. Jatropha curcas is a species of flowering plant in the spurge family, Euphorbiaceae, that is native to the American tropics, most likely Mexico and Central America.

It. Most of the Jatropha plant is also toxic to humans, and so biodiesel pioneers are attempting to find a plant that is useful for food and livestock feed as well as biodiesel fuel. Jatropha also does not produce well on marginal farmland, and this is the majority of the farmland being offered for jatropha production.

Jatrophabook - towards Jatropha sustainability is a web community open to all Jatropha seeds and oil suppliers, oil extraction plants, biodiesel and energy plants, end-users and research centers. Jatrophabook aims to create an open and transparent platform for the promotion of sustainable criteria within Jatropha supply chains.
