Simarouba Glauca: A Viable Biodiesel Feedstock?

The Simarouba biodiesel meets all the three criteria any environmentally sustainable fuel must meet. These are social, technical and commercial

The seeds from the Simarouba glauca tree contain in excess of 60% oil. The main use of the oil will be as bio fuel and for the production of biodiesel. This oil can also be used for cooking and soap production. Once the oil has been extracted, the seeds can be used as a coagulant for water treatment. The trees will act as sinks for carbon dioxide and, hence, the Simarouba glauca plantation will reduce the amount of this greenhouse gas (GHG) in the atmosphere. The project has many other positive economic, social and environmental impacts: There are income generation opportunities that result from the project like the provision of goods and services to the plantation and its workers

THE POTENTIAL RETURNS

As the biodiesel industry grows, honing a cost-effective and diverse feedstock supply stands out as a top challenge. There is a need to diversify the sources and methods used to generate biofuel products to achieve food security, energy security and sustainable development and carbon savings. Biodiesel producers are looking for alternative feedstocks which are non- agricultural and non-food crops. And Simarouba glauca has the ability to substitute the requirement of low cost feedstock with the potential for high oil seed production and the added benefit of an ability to grow on marginal land. These properties support the suitability of this plant for large scale vegetable oil production needed for a sustainable biodiesel industry.

Yield is a function of light, water, nutrients and the age of the Plant. Good planning, quality planting material, standardized agronomy practices and good crop management may handsomely increase the yields.

Simarouba glauca will yield at Maturity as high as +3 tons Biofuel with proper nutrition, and irrigation. This is truly an exceptional amount of oil from an agricultural crop.
