Biodiesel Industries takes patented technology to India

By | April 01, 2006
Biodiesel Industries, a technology provider and member of the National Biodiesel Board, has expanded to India. The company, based in Santa Barbara, Calif., will be working with the nation's government on use of their newly patented technology-a modular biodiesel processing unit.

Russ Teall, president and founder of Biodiesel Industries, recently visited India. He said Biodiesel Industries has an agreement with Labland Biotech in Mysore, India, to establish the first biodiesel plant in the country. A Model Biodiesel Production Facility and International Jatropha Technology Center will produce and research jatropha biodiesel there.

The Indian government has made hundreds of thousands of hectares available for the purpose of growing jatropha in the country. "It is important that when these lands are planted, that it be done in a sustainable and socially responsible manner, which is why this collaboration with Labland Biotech is so important," Teall said.
