Idea Name: Green Energy
Slogan: Efficiency, Power , Sustainability
Startup Domain: Energy
Abstract:
    Jatropha seeds contain 37% oil content .Extracted oil can be converted into biodiesel for use in diesel engines.To overcome scarcity of fuel in Pakistan by providing tons of pollutant free bio diesel.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Prices of fuel in Pakistan are increasing day by day, it will be cheaper. People will prefer to buy cheap fuel which is 95% workable. Our project produce one job per hectare which helps eradicating unemployment. Pakistan’s net oil import was $15.68 billion which can be reduced by using bio diesel.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   GreenEnergy will directly benefit the local population of Pakistan due to its low price & very less side effects.Benefactors includes industries,diesel consuming trucks and vehicles,generators,byproduct Jatropha biodiesel such as seed cake can be used in cosmetic industry and is a good fertilizers.
How will the solution works
    Jatropha seed is easily cultivable in subcontinent. Biodiesel production includes oil extraction using chemical or enzymatic means,then processed for purification:removal of free fatty acid content through acid based transesterification.Treated with catalyst - coproduct of the reaction, glycerin, settles down & is drained off along with the impurities,catalyst,excess alcohol & traces of unreacted oil.Then washed with hot distilled water which removes any unreacted alcohol. Stored & ready to use.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    There is no direct competition for production of high quality bio diesel in Pakistan but internationally there would be a lot of competition. Though there are small scale companies which sale Jatropha seed oil in the unrefined form in Pakistan but green energy will provide refined low price diesel.
