Bio Energy Resources, a company in Lilongwe that works with small-scale farmers, is seeking financing for a renewable energy project in Malawi. The project involves the planting and processing of Jatropha in order to introduce the use of biodiesel in rural communities.
Over 300 hectares of Jatropha curcas has already been planted in the area around Salima and the company plans to plant and process a further 126,000 hectares of jatropha trees. Bio Energy Resources is seeking a loan of approximately US$4,550,000 to achieve this expansion. During the project, jatropha seeds will be processed into biodiesel while the remaining seedcake will be combosted to produce organic fertiliser.
