I am very interested in more information about this project.
I assume the price oil Jatropha oil is proportional to the price of crude oil.
Also, how do you get to full production in 2 years versus 4-5 years for normal maturing Jatropha?

Do you have an excel spreadsheet that talks about what the costs and pofit are.

For example , there is land cost, farming costs, pressing costs, transport costs, and inflation to consider.

What are the risks associated with this?

What is the financial instrument that is issued for investment?

Dear Mr. Lawrence,

It is not clear that your plantation is in Ethiopia or South Africa? If it is a JV with S.African Govt and W.B., and you would like to dispose an area of 40,000 Ha, please give the details. I would be very much interested.

Moreover, I would like to lease more land area in the African Continent for Jatropha Plantation.
