SG Biofuels Partners with Roundtable on Sustainable Biofuels for Jatropha Initiative
Green Car Congress
MARCH 23, 2010
The SG Biofuels/RSB pilot is evaluating the practicality and usability of RSB sustainability standards applied against a 1,400 acre (600 hectare) Jatropha community-farming model established by SG Biofuels in Guatemala. SG Biofuels has also eliminated the harvest sale risk to the farmers by providing guaranteed purchase contracts of 100 percent of the production. The company recently announced the first elite Jatropha cultivar, JMax 100 ( earlier post ), optimized for Guatemala.
