Transcript of "Nl agency-workshop-biomass-projects-tanzania-september-2010"

  1. 1. Project partners: Agro Pecuária de Manica Lda Project ‘Towards Sustainability Certification of Jatropha Biofuels in Mozambique’ Matthias Spöttle – Jatropha Alliance, project manager Peter Vissers – Partners for Innovation, senior partner Sustainable Access to Sustainable Energy, 27 September 2010, Moshi, Tanzania Project co-financed by:Sustainable Access to Sustainable Energy, 27 September 2010 , Moshi, Tanzania © Jatropha Alliance 2010 1
  2. 2. What is the aim of this project? Project ‘Towards sustainability certification of Jatropha bio- fuels in Mozambique’ Project objective To build up knowledge for future certification of Jatropha bio- fuels through a benchmark pilot sustainability assessment, using existing sustainability criteria frameworks Timeline: 1 Oct 2009 – 30 Nov 2010Sustainable Access to Sustainable Energy, 27 September 2010 , Moshi, Tanzania © Jatropha Alliance 2010 2
  3. 3. Why this project? Reasons for the project: Fulfilling sustainability criteria has become a market requirement for biofuels Jatropha industry has little experience with sustainability standards Reasons for Mozambique as the country of choice: Advanced government policy on biofuels Existing cooperation with 3 Jatropha Alliance members having operations in Mozambique Suitability of Mozambican situation, soils, climate, population density, availability of unused cultivable land > to grow JatrophaSustainable Access to Sustainable Energy, 27 September 2010 , Moshi, Tanzania © Jatropha Alliance 2010 3

  5. 5. Review sustainability standards Review and Pre-selection for Multi- criteria analysis >> Analysis of 11 sustainability standardsSustainable Access to Sustainable Energy, 27 September 2010 , Moshi, Tanzania © Jatropha Alliance 2010 5
  6. 6. Review sustainability standards Multi – criteria analysis of selected standards Scoring for criteria 1 to 4: 0 = low, 1 = medium, 2 = high Scoring for criteria 5 to 7: 0 = low, 2 = medium, 4 = highSustainable Access to Sustainable Energy, 27 September 2010 , Moshi, Tanzania © Jatropha Alliance 2010 6
  7. 7. Review sustainability standards Main standards for the pilot sustainability assessment Roundtable on Sustainable Biofuels Version 1 (RSB): Fits the most with the needs of the companies and the sector, as its is supposed to become the important standard for biofuels. Covers all sustainability issues Developed activites towards a Jatropha-specific variantSupporting standard for Greenhouse Gas Emmissions Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation (RTFO): • Has proven its success since 2 years of operation • Provides clear guidance on carbon calculations >> Questionaires for each standard for the assessmentSustainable Access to Sustainable Energy, 27 September 2010 , Moshi, Tanzania © Jatropha Alliance 2010 7

Data collection 3 Jatropha growing plantations are involved Company Province Location Actual size Target size Former Land Use (2010) (2015) M1 Elaion Africa Lda Sofala Dondo 65ha 65 ha Bush-Savanna, charcoal production M2 Sun Biofuels Manica Chimoio 2,000 ha 10,000 ha Tobacco Mozambique SA M3 Agro Pecuaria de Manica Gondola 40ha 40 ha Farm land, probably Manica Lda PortugueseSustainable Access to Sustainable Energy, 27 September 2010 , Moshi, Tanzania © Jatropha Alliance 2010 8
  9. 9. Pilot sustainability assessment Exemplary gap analysis against RSB (1/2) Approach: Answers within the RSB questionaire and provided documents are assessed and score points are given for the following grades: 1. Adequate: Sufficient proof to pass RSB criteria 2. Needs Improvement: Very close to adequate, but something is missing. 3. Needs Significant Improvement: Huge amount of work needed for improvement 4. Not covered: No info obtained for this areas 5. Not applicableSustainable Access to Sustainable Energy, 27 September 2010 , Moshi, Tanzania © Jatropha Alliance 2010 9

  13. 13. Recommendations for companies aiming for sustainabilityassessment (preliminary) (1/2) 1. In the business set-up and land acquisition stage: a.

(we are there to help you to make the right choices, on the basis of self assessment or quick GAP analysis)Sustainable Access to Sustainable Energy, 27 September 2010 , Moshi, Tanzania © Jatropha Alliance 2010 14
