Business Opportunities in Pongamia Seeds

The demand for the traditional Pongamia tree—today at the level of 5 million saplings—is growing fast as innovative new uses for it are being discovered.
As the trees grow they sequester carbon. Oil is extracted from the seeds of the tree, which resemble almonds, in the village oil mill installed by a local government agency.
The oil substitutes for fuel oil replacing tree cutting for fuel-wood, and the left over oil cake substitutes for chemical fertilizer on the villagers’ FarmsAn oil mill in Powerguda village extracts oil from the seeds of Pongamia pinnata that produces oil from which electricity is generated and power pumps are run.
Oil from pongamia, a native tree species, substitutes petroleum diesel, a fossil fuel, and lowers carbon emission substantially.

Carbon Credits

Carbon Credits
How to identify Emerging Business Opportunities in Projects under the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) ?
Carbon credits are proof of having reduced one metric tonne of CO2-equivalentEmission reduction targets are decided under the Kyoto Protocol.Projects should result in a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
The Clean Development Mechanism strives to combine the different interests of developed and developing nations, all the while respecting the effort of global climate protection.
Developed countries have the potential to gain greenhouse gas emission credits at costs significantly lower than taking domestic action, while developing countries gain access to new energy technologies and an implicit transfer of know-how.
As long as bureaucratic complications in the verification, validation and crediting process do not weigh down the process, the CDM has the potential to make a significant contribution to greenhouse gas reduction efforts and sustainable development.

Atul Ajmera <Atul_Ajmera@lntenc.com>
cc SundaraRajan Margabandu <primaryinfo@gmail.com>
Subject Re: Neem Oil technology
Dr Mr M Sundarajan,
I have in my back of mind about the CDs and the liturature present in it. But I am looking to extract karanja, neem and castor in single plant though with minor modificaton. Thus the information I need in the CD should be in line and modified to meet my needs, unlike the present literature. CD should have literature with respect to all three in single plant and all common machinery with feasibility study.
I am residing in Marathwada region of Maharashtra state of india. In my region there is ample amount of production of neem, karanja, castor etc. I am chemical engineer by the background and now i am looking to enter into production of the oil from the above name seeds.
I wanted your help to understand more about the above crops and the production technologies and the machinery required. Kindly do me a favour by providing me the details of the same. I also wanted to know can i extract all the oil in same plant? As all the crops are the seasonal and in this way i can utilize the production plant for the whole year.
1. I am loooking for extracting (cold press) oil from neem , karanja and castor seeds in the same plant.2. As all the products are seasonal and to utilize the total capacity of the plant i am looking for it. (Capacity of about say 20 tonns of seed per day)3. For your information i have seen this type of plant (where karanj and neem oil are extracted by batch process but i am not sure if castor oil can be also produced in the same plant) still from you wanted to know the feasibility of the plant4. I wanted your help to understand more about the above crops and the production technologies and their specific applications. Kindly do me a favour by providing me the details of the same.
Looking forward for your reply and to know details about the plant where all the 3 oils can be extracted (may be with minor modifications).

conversation with a client

Dear Madam/Sir:
God day! I am Ma. Shiela S. Saet. Can you send me an information about pectin from pomelo. Kindly include some information on how pectin can be made into a useful products using a simple process. Thank you.
Dear Ma. Shiela S. Saet
Here is what we found :Grapefruit peel is candied and is an important source of pectin for the preservation of other fruits. The peel oil, expressed or distilled, is commonly employed in soft-drink flavoring, after the removal of 50% of the monoterpenes. The main ingredient in the outer peel oil is nookatone. Extracted nookatone, added to grapefruit juice powder, enhances the flavor of the reconstituted juice. Naringin, extracted from the inner peel (albedo), is used as a bitter in "tonic" beverages, bitter chocolate, ice cream and ices. It is chemically converted into a sweetener about 1,500 times sweeter than sugar. After the extraction of naringin, the albedo can be reprocessed to recover pectin.

Small Entrepreneurs in Andhra Pradesh Sick units are over 38 per cent of the total small industries set up in the state - Hyderabad September 09, 2005 Industrial sickness is rampant in the small-scale industrial sector (SSI) of Andhra Pradesh. Sick SSIs account for over 38 per cent of the total small industries set up in the state so far. As many as 38,582 units out of the 1,01,499 SSIs established have become sick and closed their operations. The state capital which has the maximum number of sick SSIs. In contrast, the backward Karimnagar district in the Telangana region of the state has the least percentage (17 per cent) of sickness among the SSIs. Of the 3,352 SSIs set up in Karimnagar, 583 units have been closed down so far. If we compare the Reserve Bank of India (RBI)’s data for 1999 to 2002 with the latest figures, the sickness among the SSIs in the state is growing. As per the study conducted by the Federation of Andhra Pradesh Small Industries Associations and AP SSI Centre, in collaboration with Sandilya Consultants Private Ltd, the causes of sickness are technological obsolescence, inadequate marketing efforts and facilities, lack of infrastructure, paucity of working capital, managerial inadequacies and delay in settlement of receivables. The main focus of the study was the implementation of the AP Small Scale Industry Revival Scheme. The scheme came into effect from June 25, 2001. It is targeted at SSIs with over Rs 5 lakh investments in plant and machinery but turned sick. The study reveals that, despite the well meaning efforts of the state government, the rehabilitation scheme did not draw any positive response either from the financing institutions or from the Sales Tax and other government departments. “No financing institution has sponsored even a single unit. In fact, our discussions with the financing institutions revealed that the banks branches are not aware of the existence of the scheme,” the study report, submitted last year, pointed out. The study also examines the causes of incipient (beginning) sickness in SSIs. It points out that there are instances where enterprises are born sick due to poor planning, delays in appraisal, sanction of limits from the financing institutions and lack of understanding of emerging markets on the part of the government supporting agencies and financing institutions. Analysis of the case studies of firms that have become sick reveals that most of the units faced problems with financing institutions. For a few units, sickness was due to market conditions, management problems and problem with government agencies. Delayed payment was the main cause of sickness in the case of one unit.

GherkinsInformation Compilation on CD ROM
Gherkins, like other processed vegetables from the group of pickles, are mainly eaten together with meat and meat products, either as a side-dish or in sandwiches.

There are six different sizes of gherkins available on the market, with the smaller sizes mostly available through retail outlets and the larger used in the food industry and the catering sector.
The Agri Export Zones for gherkins covering the districts of Rangareddy, Mahabubnagar, Warangal, Karimnagar, Nalgonda and Anantapur accounted for an export of 12,000 tonnes of gherkins, worth Rs 29.5 crore, during the 2005 season.

You can also suggest me allied food products that can be manufactured.Thanking you,yours truly,for Jaiko-Tech Associates

Chennai Industrial profile
Chennai District, one of the Metropolitans in India and the Capital of Tamilnadu State is the fourth largest city in the Indian sub-continent and 30th largest city in the world. It extends an area of 174 sq.k.m. which accounts for only 0.13 percent of the State’s area of 1,30,058 sq.k.m. The entire district is classified as urban. The district has a coastal line of 22 k.m. Chennai district has a hot climate which can be termed as tropical maritime climate
Demographically the rate of growth of population is 9.76 percent as against the State’s average of 11.19 percent during the period 1991-2001. As per the 2001 census, it ranked 2nd among the districts of Tamilnadu in population, next to Coimbatore District and it is the densest district with 24,231 persons per sq.k.m. as against the State’s population density of 478 persons per sq. k.m. There is 9.76 percent growth rate in the density of population during the period from 1991-2001 in Chennai district
As per 2001 census Chennai ranks 4th in literacy with 80.14 percent , 1st, 2nd and 3rd being Kanyakumari, Thuthukudi and Nilgiris with 88.11 percent, 81.96 percent and 81.44 percent respectively. However Chennai district has registered higher literacy rate than the State average of 73.4 percent
Work force constitutes 30.5 percent of the total population and the remaining 69.5 percent are non-workers
There is scope for setting up industries based on milk, Poultry and eggs, since these items produced in the neighbouring districts, where there is only limited marketing facilities, is mainly being marketed in the markets of the Chennai district
The district has a coastal line of 22 k.m. with 2 coastal blocks and 40 coastal fishing centres. Since a good amount of marine fish is caught in this area, there is good potential for setting up industries based on fish
The Chennai Metropolis enjoys the best infrastructure facilities that any entrepreneur could dream of. The district is facilitated with a major Sea-port with single window clearance , Domestic and International Airport, National and State high ways, broad gauge and meter gauge Railways, excellent communication facilities, power, banking facilities, Industrial Estates, Industrial Complexes and Industrial Parks etc
Scope for establishing new Industrial Estates in Chennai district is very limited due to lack of space. But there is scope for constructing industrial complexes in the existing Industrial Estates to accommodate a particular group of industries
An Information Technology park is set up, across 8 acres of land, with a view to give a giant leap forward to develop and integrate the country into the world wide information technology net work at Taramani in Chennai district
There was a tremendous growth in SSI units in the districts during the period of last 10 years. The industrial units registered with the Industries department was only 16,326 as on 313-1991 which was grown to 40,300 as on 31-3-2001. But the SSI sector lacks product diversification and technological upgradation . Some of the existing units are very old and require large scale modernisation
One of the main problems of the units in this district is delayed payment by the parent units. The SSI and tiny units also feel that while the financial institutions are ready to extend credit facilities, especially working capital to big borrowers who can provide collateral security, they are reluctant to consider local applications of small and tiny units.
During the survey, it was observed that small scale sector suffers from lack of economies of the scale, unlike the large scale units. Moreover, in the context of liberalisation and growing domestic and international competition this sector needs support through promotional policies of credit and technology
Entrepreneurial competence is necessary to succeed in any venture. The district is endowed with talented entrepreneurs. Technically qualified persons are also available in the district along with excellent infrastructure facilities. Keeping in view the challenging entrepreneurial opportunities at present and in future in national and international level it is of paramount importance to promote management skills of the budding entrepreneurs through counselling and training, to succeed in their endeavours
