Background

Abundant waste lands

  • The waste land is a result of soil erosion, arid nature and also mining activity.
  • The waste land in addition to strip of roadsides railways tracks canal banks can be planted with Jatropha - a plant which bears a fruit which yields an oil which can be used with minerals with mineral diesel oil.
  • FREED creates livelihood for marginal population with income opportunities.
  • Thus creating economic development, reducing their cost of oil consumption, and meeting mandates to use renewable energy.
resource
Resource
  • There is approximately 60 million hectares of wasteland in India and more than 421 million Indians below the poverty line in 8 states. The disadvantaged people do not have access to sustainable livelihoods and suffer from a social environment that worsens over time.
  • About 1,65,000 hectares is waste lands in the West Bengal.
  • Freed trains Self Help Groups that undertake cultivation and fuel extraction, providing marginal population with income opportunities.
producing livelihood and energy
Producing Livelihood and Energy
  • By turning the wastelands in India into jatropha plantations to improve the environment and produce bio-fuel.
  • Local marginalized women are employed to cultivate the land which increases their income potential and raises the standard of living.
  • Utilizing waste lands and unused manpower bio-energy is produced which is very valuable to meet the needs of a fast growing economy.
investment required
Investment Required
  • $500,000 USD of seed capital is required to develop each 300Ha. unit project. Grants are needed to fund a unit project for which land has been allocated. Grant amounts for subsequent unit projects will be lower because earned income will be used to fund new unit projects.
  • The Government supports it by funding through . MNREGA , CSR funding is available.
  • The environment protection and pollution control regulations also support this program.
advantage
Advantage
  • As per directive and recommendation of the Govt. of India all oil marketing companies are to use 20% biodiesel from 2016 – a goal to improve environment, save and stretch the reserve of fossil fuel. As such buyback arrangements with the oil companies/the coal producer. Indian Railways/ National Thermal Power Company etc. can be made as a back to back support.
methodology

  • The various projects for eg. MNREGA and other similar schemes of the Govt. can be utilized for the innovative social entrepreneurship mode.
  • The role of the private sector will be immensely important in providing the seeding / the technology for improved production, as buyer of Jatropha oil, and provider of technical solution for oil extraction and esterification.
validation associations
