Haiti Innovation is proud to be partnering with the Centre for Management Technology in the leadup to the Jatropha World 2008 conference, which will be held in Miami and focus on the potential of Jatropha as a biofuel in Latin America and the Caribbean.   We will report before, during, and after the Conference, which we anticipate will help raise awareness and bring together key stakeholders who could make the cultivation and processing of Jatropha in Haiti a reality.  Below is further information from CMT about the conference.

What is Jatropha? Is this ‘miracle plant’ the most viable feedstock for Biodiesel?  At JatrophaWorld 2008, the answer to those questions and many more will be discussed for your investment outlook.  


We at CMT, are very excited to tell you more about Jatropha World 2008, a series of three conferences aimed at presenting all the latest updates on Jatropha and now regarded as the single most important international business forum for Jatropha. 


JatrophaWorld 2008 is being organized for everyone who wants accurate, recent information on Jatropha. The conference aims to set itself apart by being objective and separating fact from fiction in the myriad of issues surrounding Jatropha.


At JatrophaWorld 2008, we will bring together industry leaders to exchange ideas, share experiences and provide insights.  In line with JatrophaWorld 2008’s commitment to be the premier platform to share information and updates on Jatropha, we launched our preliminary position paper, Jatropha as a Biodiesel Feedstock: A Strategic Analysis which provided a broad overview on the Jatropha value chain.  You can download the paper here.

The position paper is but the first chapter in the JatrophaWorld 2008 story.  JatrophaWorld 2008 aims to presen facts and respond to your questions and concern.   To that end, we have organized an inaugural webcast entitled "Debunking the Myths of Jatropha“.  The webcast was conducted by Dr. R. Rajagopal, and Dr. Sudheer Shetty, CEO of Labland Biodiesel and one of our expert panelists speaking at JatrophaWorld 2008-Jakarta.  You can view the webcast here.

The JatrophaWorld 2008- Jakarta conference was a great success.  With over 350 delegates from over 40 countries, JatrophaWorld 2008- Jakarta became the premier Industry Platform for exchanging deas and information, which contributed to partnership building and investment decision making.


We are confident that the Jatropha World 2008 - Miami will be every bit as great a success.  To be held on 10-11 June 2008, JatrophaWorld 2008 will bring together the best expertise from all over the world, presenting new perspectives relevant to American, Caribbean and Latin American investments, as well as revisit the investment outlook in Asia and Africa.


You can sign up at our VIP Alert Page to receive all the latest updates and other VIP priveleges.  We will also post JatrophaWorld 2008 update on Haiti Information as well as any news or interesting information about Jatropha and biofuels.

Your comments and feedback are welcome as well. We do hope that we can meet all of you at JatrophaWorld 2008 Miami!


Your Sincerely,

The JatrophaWorld 2008 team.
