D1 Oils asks for help in promoting sustainable biodiesel

Speaking at the United Nations Climate Change Summit in Bali, Karl Watkin MBE, founder of D1 Oils, called on the development non-governmental organisations (NGOs) present at the conference to stop their generic criticism of biodiesel. Mr Watkin asked that the NGOs be more rigorous in their differentiation of feedstocks for biofuels and to provide more support for the sustainable production of jatropha in developing nations:

Environmental and development NGOs are right to be critical of soya and palm that are produced unsustainably in areas such as Brazil and Indonesia. There’s no point in an energy crop that worsens the problem by destroying forest or grassland. Because these attacks don’t differentiate the sustainable biofuel crops like jatropha from the less sustainable like soya and palm, the NGO campaigns are undermining the industry as a whole. We are in danger of throwing the baby out with the bathwater. We would like to see more of these groups backing research into sustainable jatropha and working with companies like D1 to enable jatropha to make an impact on both climate and poverty in developing countries.

Biodiesel produced from jatropha is one of the most promising solutions for tackling the growing carbon emissions from transport. D1 is working to encourage the adoption of jatropha as an additional crop to supplement the incomes of poor farmers in the developing world.
