dry fermentation of Jatropha seedcake (and other biomass)

Hello
we are running a farm in Mozambique and have a lot of biomass. In addition we have planted jatropha and will eventually have a lot of jatropha seedcake. Through a dry-fermentation unit we want to produce electricity and sell the rest as organic fertilizer. Has anybody done this already (even with conventional biomass or other seedcake) ? Or can give me a supplier to turn to ?
Kind regards
