NCT to triple biofuel output

Cambodia-based NCT Jacam Energy Co. plans to more than triple its production of biodiesel made from jatropha seeds by January next year, aiming for production of up to 2,000 liters per day. The firm’s jatropha refinery in Kampong Speu province presently produces some 600 liters of fuel per day. NCT Jacam Energy first began daily production of 100 liters of biodiesel at its US$400,000 processing factory last October. It does not own plantations, but instead purchases raw jatropha from farmers in Kampong Speu, Battambang, and Banteay Meachey for approximately US$85 per ton, according to President Chheuy Sophors.
