Fellows: I am a serious advocate for jatropha based biofuels. I are planning a 20MW power plant in Arizona. It will require 8,000,000 gal/yr of biodiesel fuel if you were to have 100% jatropha. Can anyone tell me what the present cost of Jatropha fuel is in train car loads at the Port of L.A. today?

Thanks for the post, your project sounds interesting, but I think that you're asking a question which is beyond the scope of the current jatropha production industry. I'd like someone to prove me wrong.
Have you thought about integrating back up the feed chain for your process into raw materials like Jatropha? Several ethanol producers have been skinned because they're tied to extracting value from the fuel part of the chain, when there could be profits in distribution, retail, or even growing their feedstocks. You don't see integrated producers like Shell, ExxonMobil or BP losing their shirts when the price of oil moves

states Jatropha biodiesel is available from India for $43 per barrel.
I don't know of a closer large producer, but maybe somebody is getting going in Central America?
By the way, the same organization, on their main page, states something about organizing training sessions for producers.
