On the 17th & 18th October 2012 the second Clean Technology business and investment matchmaking conference for the African continent is to be held at the Killarney Country Club, Lower Houghton South Africa.

Called Viridis Africa, the event is dedicated to entrepreneurs and corporates who are seeking funding to introduce clean technology solutions and services.

Principals who would present their business opportunities at this event would have the audience of numerous local and foreign investors, stratified according to their interest and investment criteria.
Investors would include venture capital, private equity, project and corporate finance outfits and others dedicated to the clean tech sector. They would also include North American, European funding agencies, major Asian industrial conglomerates, technology specific investment funds and major companies who seek strategic alliance and acquisitions.

Dear Sipha,

Salvo Global has launched a Masterclass that targeted at Engineers and other technical staff who do not have formal training in financial management, but who require a better understanding of the concepts of cost management and capital project evaluation. In addition, the related concepts of profits, assets, productivity and profitability will be addressed.

We really wish Engineers or Technical experts like you could spare time to attend this Masterclass

For more information

With Regards

Ng Zhimao

OK. Look over the F&S files your RSA office produced something of Jatropha Curcas Linn last year or end of 07. We have a lot of investors(?) out there still convinced that transesterfication of Vegetable oil will deliver. In terms of energy conversion to market values I have not been able to qualify this ideology leading to an economic statement. I am still getting feedback on the costs of Hydro-processing technologies, Biomass to liquid and CHP as well as other desirable large scale processing to deliver value added commodities from Jatropha-Castor agriculture. I can see any reduction from professional agriculture though, so $4000USD per Ha to first harvest opportunity is reasonably fixed. JCL-Castor large scale agricultural extension can only be considered at strategic locations that offer all of the desirable conditionality that allow for least cost shortest high volume routes to market deliverables.
