With years of continuing research, experiments and trials has provided an adage to find and develop 2nd generation biodiesel feedstock with low cost input technology.
Among the crops identified as potential sources of biodiesel are Simmondsia chinesis, Pongamia (derris indica), Garcinia indica, Moringa oleifera, Madhuca indica, Ricinus communis, Simarouba glauca, Citrullus colocynthis, algae etc.
The CJP: Advanced Biofuel Center entre for Jatropha Promotion & Biodiesel is working towards scientific commercialization of nonfood biodiesel trees/crops that will lend credibility; reliability and scalability with regards to food security, energy security and sustainable development and carbon savings.
With an effort to ‘grow beyond oil ‘, apart from Jatropha, ADVANCED BIOFUEL CENTER has identified, developed and cultivated as many as 15 non-food oil crops.
Russia's first nuclear power plant, and the first in the world to produce electricity, was the 5 MWe Obninsk reactor, in 1954.
Russia's first two commercial-scale nuclear power plants started up in 1963-64, then in 1971-73 the first of today's production models were commissioned.
It was established in 1992 and was reconstituted as a utility in 2001, as a division of SC Rosatom.
Between the 1986 Chernobyl accident and mid-1990s, only one nuclear power station was commissioned in Russia, the four-unit Balakovo, with unit 3 being added to Smolensk.
All registered facilities operating under the Since the early 1990s, there has been an increasing emphasis on phytosanitary concerns regarding the international movement of wood products.
