Tree Types Under Consideration

Pongamia pinnata

Pongamia pinnata (Indian Beech Tree) is also called HONGE and its origin is here in India. HONGE can become an important second generation sustainable biofuel crop. It can produce inedible oil (bio diesel, starch, and ethanol) and biogas (by fermenting the present seed cakes). Using HONGE oil, simple processing techniques and diesel generators, several un electrified villages in India have created their own power grid systems to run water pumps. కానుగ (Telugu)
