The statement about Jatropha is totally false and it only shows Imperium decision not to invest in feedstock. Palm oil is a food cash crop and will increase prices of food derive from it..Palm oil is a hot commodity with tight supply. Shifting millions of gallons towards Fuel is not only dangerous but very irresponsible. If they invested in 15,000 hectares per year for the next five years that will produce 220,000 tons of Oil cumulatively by 2015 which is over 63 million gallons.
