Edible High Performance Jatropha

  • Edible High Performance Jatropha is Jatropower’s most innovative development to date.
  • As part of the High Performance breeding programme, this seed produces a 4 – 6 times higher yield compared to wild Jatropha crops.
  • Edible High Performance Jatropha is also free of toxins and produces not only bio-oil but also an very high quality protein, which can now also be used in the food sector.
  • Compared to the Non-Edible High Performance, the application of the protein allows an increase in revenue yield of up to 145%.
  • Edible High Performance Jatropha thrives on degraded soils.
  • By using previously unproductive soils, the sequestration performance of corresponding plantations can be certified and thus traded as part of the value addition.
  • Edible High Performance Jatropha is thus (along with Non-Edible High Performance Jatropha) the basis for the only form of CO2 removal from the atmosphere that is currently profitable.
