Ethanol Production for Engines from Trees

Problem Statement:

Energy is the number one problem of Pakistan and solving this problem in a cost effective manner is a big opportunity..




The project is to create a group that would apply themselves to come up with small scale production of biodiesel from trees that are available with ease and that can be harnessed to make low cost oil. This is true for trees like Jatropha or Erundi that grows in the wild in arid areas and that creates castor oil that can be used a biodiesel fuel. Creation of the small setup to make biodiesel from Jatropha can help people use things like diesel generator, tractor and tube well in the rural context. . The idea is to create biodiesel at a reasonable cost so people can run their tractors and tube wells from local resources at a low cost without burning expensive diesel. The forum will encourage and generate funding for this work to quickly get to a local industry that can resolve the energy problem in the next five years and reduce dependence on foreign oil and gas that is expensive and takes precious foreign exchange..

People Impact:

Any new industry based off the concepts of local design an materials will be cost effective and it will generate jobs for young entrepreneurs..

Financial Impact:

This will create financial opportunity for the manufacturers and also help provide low cost energy to people in a distributed local way that they can maintain themselves..
