06/2017 Southeast Asian customer tour
As every year we got our 2017-Southeast-Asian customer tour this year again in May/June and we met different groups and enterprises in Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam. It helped us to get closer contact to different interested people and gave us a better understanding about local applications and customer demands. Traditionally this trip included a couple of meetings, presentations and workshops. Meetings got organized by our local partners or enterprises. On that way we continued our more than 25 years partnerships in that region. We presented this time even our new multi fuel concepts which includes beside different new and used vegetable oils - bio-methane.
03/2017 30 years Jatrotha oil technology
30 years ago we finished our first Jatropha projects in cooperation with the GTZ on Cape Verde. Originally these projects were made to support local farmers and to protect agriculture from erosion and other damages. The collected nuts grow on fences around the fields were processed to oil. This oil was used for local machinery driven by ELSBETT engines and for some production of soap. Unfortunately many of these projects were captured by huge agricultural enterprises to produce Jatropha based biofuel on mega plantations for the entire world. Most of these projects failed by well known reasons and people got lost again with their local problems. During the last 7-10 years we invested a lot to get these projects back to the original idea and suitable size to make them profitable for the local people. We still believe that the technology still sustainable and may be a key to develop rural areas in Africa, Asia and Latin America by supplying them with local made fuel for their machinery.
