Global PongamiaWorld 2013

2 Day Pongamia State of Art International Workshop

August 3 & 4, 2013, Jaipur, India


Development of pongamia as a biofuel crop has largely been underway in India, at CJP where scientists have been assessing new crops to support sustainable rural development. There is significant interest in developing pongamia as a new source of biofuel. Its reputation in India as a sustainable rural fuel source, combined with its ability to establish on low fertility soils Cultivars are being selected that will yield seeds with up to 40% oil. The plant has attracted research interest due to its reputation as a drought tolerant crop and its traditional use as a source of oil for lamp fuel. Pongamia has a long history of use by people. Research and field trials to assess the species’ capacity to produce biofuel have been underway at Centre for Jatropha Promotion & Biodiesel (CJP). After having a number of successful field trials CJP has honor to establish Pongamia Pinnata- an untapped resource as alternative source for  Bio- Diesel industry of future


CJP’s Global PongamiaWorld focuses on the entire Pongamia production from Ground zero to scale. Topics are carefully selected to cover the Agronomy, Horticulture, Biology, Engineering, Marketing and Financial aspects of Pongamia commercialization. CJP is recognized as an important platform for productive exchanges among the Academic, Commercial and Investment communities.  Join us at this unique knowledge platform to share the latest information on:

An Update from the Pongamia Industry Advances in Pongamia Research & development Production Systems  Commercial track of Pongamia — Leading the Way to New heights Harvesting and Extraction Frontiers of Pongamia Biotechnology and so on–¬


The members of Biodiesel industries can use the resources to be outlined in the meeting to collectively focus on their goals and pursue them in ways that improve their chances of making best bet decisions. This will involve identifying consumer needs, clearly defining the Pongamia crop product, establishing the human and technical components of the supply chain and entering a commercial market, once appropriate benchmarks for investment, growth and returns have been set. Applying such an approach to nonfood Biodiesel crop industry, one can also provide a framework for the industry to determine its needs in terms of future growth, research and development


Pongamia has demonstrated a favorable response to many of the practices and techniques currently used in agriculture, but research is needed to understand its unique properties that can be manipulated to coax the crop to reach its fullest potential. Among agronomic questions that can only be readily got answered in the programme with assurance are:

Biology, Biodiversity & Physiology

Gremplasm, Genomic, Genetic Improvement & Propagation


Farm Design & Management

Agronomics and sustainability

- R&D status, available varieties, yield, optimal conditions

- Greenhouse gas benefits


- Economy, Marketing & Health-promoting Properties

In the recent years Pongamia oil industry has caught the great attention in the global market and, as the world’s one of the Pongamia producer, India plays a very important role in it. Thus, it is very important for stakeholders of Pongamia oil industry to continuously and constantly to keep updated on the technology due to its potential in maximizing productivity and achieving further efficiency. CJP holds the Global PONGAMIA WORLD 2013 as an important event for global Pongamia stakeholders. This event will provide reliable information on Pongamia, market dynamics, and also with the latest issues in the industry.

The Forming and Managing Supply Chains in Agribusiness learning package helps managers to learn what is required to “hand craft” their own supply chain as a way of improving their Pongamia crop enterprise’s chances of success. The package would be of interest to anyone in the Pongamia crop development process, but is specially targeted at those who are close to the full commercialization stage. Global Pongamia World 2013  shall Highlights the updated research and technology; Experts will meet to reveal the latest developments in Pongamia research, the newest agricultural, horticultural, harvesting and modification techniques, and tell how the process can be scaled up. It will provide an excellent opportunity to the investors, entrepreneurs, renewable fuel experts, their associates and academia to share their experiences and knowledge on Pongamia. It will give them an excellent opportunity to know more about the latest research and developments in production .The Programme would cover all the topics related to Pongamia Industry with Plantation visit

This is a NOT to be MISSED Opportunity to new growers to start Biodiesel  Business
