Dates for Global Pongamia World 2013, Jaipur in India slated

The Biodiesel Business academy- knowledge arm of Centre for Jatropha Promotion & Biodiesel is pleased to announce the 2 Day Pongamia State of Art International Workshop viz. Global Pongamia World – 2013 to be held on 3-4, August, 2013 at Jaipur, India.

A comprehensive research and development program for the development of Nonfood biodiesel feedstocks has been initiated Centre for Jatropha Promotion & Biodiesel (CJP) and great progress has been made.  The CJP, a platform for multidisciplinary multifeedstocks research into all aspects of nonfood energy farming intensified its collaborative research approach with regards to perennial oil seeds bearing tree like Pongamia Pinnata, Moringa oliferia, Jojoba, simarouba, etc. in combination with annual nonfood oil crops to have more oil yield per ha and to improve their product. The CJP’s mission is to perform cutting-edge plant science research in genetics, breeding and horticulture, and further develop technologies to allow for the economic commercialization and sustainability of energy farms globally.

Our research team identified and collected 42 high yielding candidate plus trees of Pongamia pinnata (L.)  and evaluated genetic association and variability in seed and growth characters to develop improved Pongamia varieties. In 2009, we got first break through in developing elite Pongamia variety . Scientific findings and process on pongamia identified promising accessions with favourable traits for future establishment of orchards.

Researchers at the CJP are currently researching the Genomic and Genetic of Pongamia, which will enable highly productive plantations of Pongamia to be grown. We are also seeing very good field trial data for our new variety with traits like better uniformity, improved self-branching, early flowering and higher productivity. CJP’s elite Pongamia variety “Derris Indica(DI03SAP™)” will yield at Maturity as high as 1000 gallon oil per ha which shall reached as high as 3400 gallon in 15th year with proper nutrition, and irrigation. This is truly an exceptional amount of oil from an agricultural crop.

BBA’s Global Pongamia World 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. BBA 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 Pongamia Fuel Plantation:

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

Next Generation Biofuels Feedstock

In recent years Pongamia oil industry has caught 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. BBA holds the Global PONGAMIAWORLD 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 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. Pongamia World 13 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 visits.

Keep 3rd and 4th August, 2013 booked for this important event in Pongamia. We take this opportunity to cordially invite you to participate in this International workshop by registering as soon as possible
