Short description of the project: Project goal is to validate a sustainble model of biodiesel production in Guatemala using Jatropha oil as main feedstock. Jatropha is cultivated in marginal or low productive areas. The project approach is to include small producers in the value chain through the organization of "Oil Production Clusters". We are working on three areas: small producers, big producers or investors and Research and Development. Our partners include public, private and academic institutions. We plan to cultivate around 600ha by end 2009, extract all oil obtained from plantations and produce biodiesel. Currently we have around 60 hectareas under cultivation.
