China Planning Massive Jatropha Planting For Biodiesel
7 February 2007
China plans to plant 13 million hectares—an area the size of England—with jatropha trees for biodiesel, according to the State Forestry Administration (SFA).
Jatropha is currently grown on around 2 million hectares across the country. The 13-million-hectare forest mostly spread over southern China is expected eventually to produce nearly 6 million tons (1.8 billion gallons US) of biodiesel every year.
