About us

A statutory body Chhattisgarh Biofuel Development Authority (CBDA) set up in 2005 with an objective of ensuring sustainable source of supply of feedstock for biofuel production. CBDA's approach to biofuels is unique – focusing solely on non-edible feed stocks raised on degraded wastelands, no food vs. fuel conflict. CBDA started promotion on non-edible energy crops plantation, particularly Jatropha, in underutilized lands, throughout the State. During the years 2005 to 2009, around 2774 lakhs of Jatropha curcas were planted by Agriculture, Forest, Horticulture and other departments in CG. Although, due to low/ negligible maintenance, the survival of the crop is disappointing, but once after passing the initial gestation period those standing crops across the State, have now started yielding. It is estimated that current annual production of Jatropha seed in Chhattisgarh is around 3000 MT and is expected to reach around 10000 MT in coming years.
 
A 3 KLPD biodiesel plant & mechanical expeller set up by CBDA for demonstration. Till the end of FY 2015-16, around 1,70,000  ltr. semi-finished Jatropha biofuel and more than 80,000 ltr. B100 produced from Jatropha  at CBDA Plant. We are consistently producing Jatropha Organic Manure (JOM) for the farmers of CG, which has been tested by Indira Gandhi Krishi Viswavidyalaya (IGKV), Raipur, depicting available 3.0 % N along with other important micronutrients in JOM.
