MBET Wasteland Reclamation Solving the 60 Million Refugee Disaster
“Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone
planted a tree a long time ago” (Warren Buffet).
I. Benefits of Jatropha
A. Immediate cash flow (see below – Commercial Products) MBET will plant the selectively bred and grafted Jatropha for free but must have a long-term contract to maintain and harvest it.
B. Photosynthesis – absorbing Carbon Dioxide and Nitrogen and producing Oxygen, (MBET Carbon Exchange Program), biofuel (MBET Biofuel) and many other valuable products (MBET Pharmaceuticals).
C. Nitrogen-fixing plant – fertilizing the soil by large-scale transfer of nitrogen from the air into the soil allowing indigenous row crops to grow between rows of grafted Jatropha
D. Reforestation of wasteland by Jatropha (selectively bred for height) could change the micro-climate of the area increasing rainfall
E. Creates shade and shelter for plants, animals, and humans; shade also minimizes evaporation.
F. Protection against wind erosion holding the nitrogen-fixed soil in place
G. Water storage
H. Living fence – not eaten by animals; negates wind erosion and dust pollution
II. Commercial Products from Jatropha
A. Medicines – immediate first-year cash flow, even with young plants (MBET Cosmeceuticals, MBETHealing Preparations, MBET External Pharmaceuticals, MBET Internal Pharmaceuticals)
a. topical pain relief
b. topical antiseptic/antibiotic/antifungal against Staph aureus, many other pathogens (E. coli, Klebsiella pneumonia, Strep. pyogens, Candida albicans)
c. curcain – from leaves of Jatropha – topical coagulant
d. cardiac – beta blocker
e. protection for cultured human lymphoblasticol cells against HIV
f. phorisol esters of seed – great natural insecticide
B. World’s “most valuable” biofuel (MBET Biofuel)
a. much of New Zealand Airlines jet fuel is Jatropha oil
b. low processing cost – squeezing seeds
C. Oils for cosmetics, skin care lotions, soaps and shampoos (MBET Cosmeceuticals)
D. Branches – latex
E. Organic fertilizer with tremendous nitrogen content; low cost
III. MBET’s Maximizing the Value of Jatropha
A. Institutions around the world are creating Jatropha hybrids using the productive seed producing species (usually J. curcas) and the most drought resistant (J. cinerea) but this creates mediocrity of plants (decreasing both the productive and the drought resistance qualities).
B. MBET Natural Selective Breeding and Hybridization System™ uses cross-pollination of same species to increase the pod productive qualities of J. curcas; then grafting or budding this improved J. curcas into the root stock of the improved, more drought resistant J. cinerea. Other qualities for which MBET is breeding are
1) production of medicinals;
2) height of bush/tree to maximize the chance of increasing rainfall ;
3) oils for skin care;
4) branches for latex;
5) increasing the ratio of air/soil absorption of nitrogen to increase seed and nitrogen-fixing qualities.
