In Zimbabwe, after focusing on R&D for the past dozen years, the government is jumping back into jatropha as a solution for fuel shortages with a new facility and 6,000 ha of plantations. Finealt Engineering, part of the Ministry of Energy and Power Development, has gotten biodiesel production costs down to 97 cents per liter but is aiming for 78 cents, compared to diesel that is retailed at around $1.29 per liter. The National Oil Company is expected to be the main offtaker of the biodiesel produced from the project.
