Zimbabwe looking for alternative oilseed feedstocks to bring back jatropha project

January 1, 2020 |

In Zimbabwe, the Herald newspaper reports that the government has asked researchers to identify possible alternative oilseed feedstocks that will allow it to restart the originally jatropha-based biodiesel project on Mt. Hampden. Limited production from soybeans has been done, as well as using jatropha from plantations developed in the early 2000s. Another 6,000 ha has been granted to the project for feedstock development while the government is engaging with global institutions to try to secure climate change funding for further investment in the project.
