Will the Jatropha Sector Sustain Itself in Volatile Times?

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (PRWEB) January 14, 2009

In line with Jatropha World Asia 2009, a free webcast "Will the Jatropha Sector Sustain Itself in Volatile Times?" is scheduled. It will broadcast live 20 January 9AM GMT, 2:30 PM India, 4:00 PM Bangkok, 5:00 PM Kuala Lumpur and 8:00 PM Australian Central Time. This timely webcast will provide a platform for key industry experts to field Jatropha entrepreneurs' questions concerning the effect today's uncertain economy will have on their investments and the industry as a whole.

As Jatropha takes huge strides toward commercialization as a sustainable, clean burning biofuel, it is more important than ever that those with an interest in Jatropha curcas stay abreast of the effect today's unstable global economy has on the Jatropha sector.

Dr. Mike Taverner, Executive Chairman of Jatoil Ltd., will chair the upcoming webinar. Utilizing 20 years of professional expertise in agriculture, corporate governance, research and development, and training to develop a highly successful Jatropha business model, Dr. Taverner is ideally suited to answer pressing industry and investment questions by Jatropha entrepreneurs.

During the webcast, a few topics on the agenda for discussion and debate include:

  • Jatropha and Biofuel Industry projections for 2009
  • Oil price volatilities' impact on Jatropha
  • The best agricultural practices for long-term success in Jatropha plantation management
  • How to maintain investor interest during today's global recession
  • How to transform a Jatropha project idea into a profitable business
  • Strategizing to create carbon neutral Jatropha projects
In light of recent economic and Jatropha developments, Dr. Taverner commented on both the challenges and rewards expected for those vested in the Jatropha industry.

He stated, "We are heading into hard times where only the best businesses will survive and management of cash flow will be key while the capital markets remain tight - the challenge will continue to be accessing development funds and strategic partners to develop sustainable supply chains."

Dr. Taverner further purported that investors should expect to see results soon as, "the market will be encouraged by recent very positive coverage for Jatropha with airline test flights where the technical attributes/credential of Jatropha oil as feedstock for jet fuel have been described."
