Quick Overview

In 2007, Goldman Sachs cited Jatropha curcas as one of the best candidates for future biodiesel production.[5] It is resistant to drought and pests, and produces seeds containing 27-40% oil,[6] averaging 34.4%.[7] The remaining press cake of jatropha seeds after oil extraction could also be considered for energy production.[8] However, despite their abundance and use as oil and reclamation plants, none of the Jatropha species have been properly domesticated and, as a result, their productivity is variable, and the long-term impact of their large-scale use on soil quality and the environment is unknown.[9] 2009 research found that Jatropha biodiesel production requires significantly more water than other common biofuel crops, and that initial yield estimates were high.

Jatropha podagrica is a species of plants known by several English common names, including Buddha belly plant, bottleplant shrub, gout plant, purging-nut, Guatemalan rhubarb, and goutystalk nettlespurge. It is native to the tropical Americas but it is propagated as an ornamental plant in many parts of the world. The stem is swollen into vasculum at the base and filled with thin sap. The plant bears bright red coral-like flowers throughout the year.
