Michael Chaplinsky, President of Turf Feeding Systems and Jack Katz, CEO of Monarca, are meeting with the JOil team in Singapore to select special hybrid Jatropha plants needed for their BioJet fuel project in Yucatan Mexico. Monarca is a 33,000 hectare plantation and BioJect fuel refinery that will produce 30 million gallons of BioJet fuel for Mexican aviation.

BioJet Fuel is in High Demand Worldwide

Biojet fuel is in high demand and production is limited with only a few refineries producing it worldwide. Monarca will be the first BioJet fuel facility in the world to bring together agriculture seed oil projection with a Honeywell UOP refinery on the same 33,000 hectare site.

Jack Katz states, “We have the interest and support of the local government to diversify and build the Yucatan economy, as well as the National ASA - Aeropuertos y ServiciosAuxiliares – airport operations, services and aviation fuel, to supply BioJet fuel for Mexican aviation.”

Katz continues, “We can sell every gallon of BioJet fuel we produce once we are on line in two years, and we have the most outstanding team of scientists, agronomists, engineers and practitioners for the project. This will be the most efficient, productive and sustainable biofuel project in the world.”

Michael Chaplinsky, President of Turf Feeding Systems, states, “I was brought in to create high yield efficient agriculture production of Jatropha, an oil bean plant that will thrive in the Yucatan climate using our special sustainable agriculture practices. We are now looking for the best hybrid Jatropha variety for the plantation and our next step is to meet with JOil world leading Jatropha research company in Singapore.

Chaplinsky continues, “Jatropha has had poor success in the past because it was planted in poor soil and cultivated poorly with traditional agriculture practices at best. We can push high fruit production 50% over any normally cultivated hybrid Jatropha, once we find the best hybrid plant.”

Chaplinsky concludes, “We are excited to meet the JOil team since they are the Jatropha experts and we are always looking for the right partners and suppliers for this project. This is a business model that will continue to expand; our long term business plan is to have one million hectares under cultivation in ten years.”
