    “UBA has been recognized by Shell Oil as a top biofuels enterprise”, commented CEO Craig Frank. “Their network, reputation, and experience will contribute greatly to our efforts to lead a dialogue and establish a viable commercial exchange for the use of Jatropha-based fuels in the aviation sector.

    “AFAI recently successfully completed several years of extensive research on Jatropha as a feedstock source for profitably produced, sustainable biofuel, including jet fuel,” continued CEO Craig Frank. “Bloomberg New Energy Finance forecasts that Jatropha-based aviation fuels will be the first advanced biofuel to achieve cost parity with conventional jet fuel, and we intend for Project Jetropha and its website Jetropha.com to be at the forefront of this industry.”

    Many commercial airlines, including Virgin, KLM, Lufthansa, and AeroMexico have flown test flights using Jatropha-based aviation fuels with results that exceeded traditional jet fuel performance because Jatropha-based fuel (a) functions extremely well at cold temperatures, and (b) burns hotter, producing more energy and improving fuel efficiency.

    “We view Project Jetropha and the Jetropha.com portal as the missing ingredients in an industry ready to expand and meet its potential”, remarked UBA Chairman Daniel Yepez. “The interest in Jatropha-based biofuels runs deep throughout the aviation sector. AFAI is stepping up and not only filling a void but meeting a tremendous need. We believe it will be a great success and therefore we quickly agreed to join and lend our support”.
