That's right: half a million acres of inedible plants

"With a lease on half a million acres of land in Ghana, Galten's founders - Levi and his partner Shlomi Jonas, now the CEO of Galten - have big plans for jatropha seeds as biofuel. Although the extraction method is secret, Levi says, experts do already know that the jatropha plant, which lives about 30 to 40 years, is a rich source of biofuel. Its seeds contain an oil content of about 35 percent, but there have been industry limitations extracting it, says Levi."

Selling pure Israeli technology to the world. This is going to be a new jojoba fiasco, but they will make money on it, no doubt.
