Mr. Ashraful Alam, an expatriate Bangladeshi now living in Dallan, China. has provided the following piece of good news that the Jatropha plants that are growing in the model farm established by the Green Gold platinum Ltd in Chittagong are producing seeds. The harvesting process will be completed by the 1st week of August. Mr. Alam informs the GNOBB coordinator that shortly they will embark upon the next phase of extracting biodiesel oil from the seeds under controlled (laboratory) environment. Thereafter, they hope to start the project on a large scale in the fields of the Tea estates which have not only large areas of land and manpower resources at their disposal but they are also users of jatropha-seeds derived diesel oil. The entrepreneurs believe that within 2020 the entire transportation system of the country will be run by biodiesel derived from jatropha seeds.
