We have covered already what jatropha is: a promising crop which can be cultivated on barren land that does not compete with food production and from which you can obtain oil (with a quality similar to rapeseed) to make biodiesel. A lot of research is being done on making jathropa a viable source for biofuels.
Three important companies have teamed up to see how good this plant can be. Daimler will investigate how this type of biodiesel affects engines, ADM has expertise in biodiesel production and Bayer CropScience will investigate how this plant can be grown and will develop herbicides, insecticides and fungicides for it. Are three minds better than one here?
