Renewable Diesel directly usable for an existing half billion diesel engines in the world
First-generation biodiesel is produced from vegetable oils. The most common feedstocks used to make biodiesel are rapeseed, soybean and palm oils. First generation biodiesel and biofuels in general are made partly responsible for the increased cost of food commodities, deforestation of rainforests for palm and indirect land use change (ILUC).
The concept of “second-generation biodiesel” and its major advantage in terms of sustainability implied the use of non-alimental land and feedstocks. An additional requirement for second-generation biodiesel is a minimum Green House Gas emission savings of over 60% in comparison to fossil fuels.
The best positioned next generation biofuel is Renewable Diesel which is produced through the hydrocracking of vegetable oils.
Hydrocracking is a refinery method that uses elevated temperatures and pressure in the presence of a catalyst to break down larger molecules such as those found in vegetable oils, into shorter hydrocarbon chains used in diesel engines. Renewable Diesel is also called Green Diesel, or hydro-treated vegetable oil (HVO).
Renewable Diesel has the same chemical properties as fossil based diesel. Renewable Diesel is a "drop-in" fuel that does not require any, time consuming and expensive, new engines or infrastructure developments.

- Renewable Diesel is the fastest and cheapest way to decarbonize the transport sector
- Currently, the only suitable feedstocks for Renewable Diesel is Used Cooking Oil (UCO) and Palm Oil
- Demand for true sustainable feedstocks for Renewable Diesel production will be substantial
Maximize Renewable Diesel feedstock production through reforestation of cattle land
Renewable diesel from reforestation is the "cleanest" diesel possible
Silvopasture agriculture combines trees and livestock on the same land
Protein as cattle feed
Karanj seed cake (the material that is left after pressing the oil) is protein feed allowing for the use of less land per head of livestock
A hectare of pongamia sequesters more greenhouse gas than the produced renewable diesel emits which is endlessly sustainable

Who we are
World's largest pongamia tree reforestation programs
We pre-select cattle land for certified reforestation land leases for individual investors, family offices and specialized funds to which we match long term production contracts with world-wide Renewable Diesel oil refineries and protein off-take agreements.
Our elite tree propagation and research center already represents world's largest dedicated elite pongamia tree production site. We have built an elite tree propagation capacity of 300,000 trees reaching over one million trees a year from 2018 onwards. The site of 1,000 hectares has over 1 km on the Rio Paraguay, one of south America's most navigated rivers directly bordering Brazil. The site has its own harbor, landing strip and can also be easily visited by road via Brazil.
Our Holding Company is based in Rotterdam in the Netherlands. The port of Rotterdam is Europe's largest producer of Renewable Diesel and the major biofuel hub for the European market. Crude oil from crushing from our site at the Rio Paraguay can reach all major harbors in the world by only using low cost, low carbon vessel transport.
We provide the world wide fast growing Renewable Diesel industry an alternative, non-food, feedstock to palm and UCO. Our feedstock is cost effective, high yielding and carbon negative produced by reforesting cattle land.
Investors in feedstock production have a rare opportunity to responsibly invest in a fast growing, fully sustainable agriculture practices of the future with income from Renewable Diesel feedstock, protein, cattle and possibly carbon credits.
