Moringa Oleifera

"Moringa is one of the world’s most useful plants and nutritious crops."
(Asian Vegetable Research and Development Center, 2003).

Introducing Moringa Oleifera

Moringa may well be unheard of to most of the western world; but it is far from foreign to those residing in Asia, Africa, India
and the West Indies. Moringa plantations have been growing successfully in these regions for centuries. The tree was also highly valued in the ancient world; with the Romans, Greeks and Egyptians extracting
edible oil from the seeds for the purpose of perfume and lotion. Moringa is now widely cultivated and has become naturalized in many locations in the tropics. A rapidly-growing and drought-resistant tree, all parts of Moringa are edible and can be used for oil, fibre, medici ne orwater purification. Moringa has adopted many names; from the drumstick tree to the horseradish tree, “mother’s best friend” and the ben oiltree. However, researchers, development workers and scientists agree that its phenomenal properties more than justify it being labelled the “miracle tree”.

Three non-governmental organizations – Trees for Life, Church World Service and Educational Concerns for Hunger Organization – advocate Moringa as “natural nutrition for the tropics”. This is due to the fact that the tree is being used to combat malnutrition in poverty-stricken countries especially among
infants and nursing mothers. More recently, the tree has gained the attention of practitioners seeking alternative therapies in the prevention of cancer.

The nutritional and medicinal benefits are indisputable, and now the oil extracted from Moringa seeds is also being used as a source of second generation bio-diesel.
With a higher recovery and quality of oil than other crops, no direct competition with food crops (as it is an edible source of
fuel and does not suffer the toxicity issues of other sources such as jatropha), and no direct competition with existing farmland
(as it can be grown for both purposes at the same time); this multi-dimensional tree is already being grown for this purpose
in a number of countries including West Africa, the Philippines and other parts of Asia. Whilst Moringa is a relatively new player
in the alternative fuel market, the global potential is massive. Already, Moringa is projected to be Japan and Korea’s dominant
source of bio diesel for automobiles within the next fifty years.

"Moringa oleifera is the most widely distributed, well-known and studied species
of the family moringaceae"
(Current Protocols in Microbiology, IG.2.1, 2010).

Growing Moringa

Moringa oleifera is the best known of the thirteen species of the genus moringacae. This slender evergreen tree grows extremely fast in the tropics
and in semi-arid tropical and subtropical areas. Moringa grows also on semi-nutritious land, saline land and even waste land without ample rainfall or additions of fertilizer. The tree can survive blistering heat, desiccating dryness and destitute soils which require only minimal water to survive.

Moringa commonly reaches four metres in height just ten months after the seed is planted and can bear fruits within its first year. Of particular importance to those countries suffering from a lack of food-supply, Moringa is in full leaf at the end of the dry season when other foods are typically scarce. Furthermore, Moringa thrives in those regions where malnutrition is a biggest threat to its population

Cultivating Moringa

Can be easily grown from seed or cuttings
Seeds have no dormancy period
Trees can be seeded directly and grown anytime during
the year
Prefers neutral to slightly acidic, well drained, sandy or
loamy soil
Minimal watering required and will flower and produce
pods whenever there is sufficient water available
Will generally grow without adding very much fertilizer
Will tolerate up to 48 degrees in the shade and can survive
a light frost
Resistant to most pests.

"Moringa is one of the fastest growing bio-masses on the planet, when properly
nourished."
(moringafarms.com)

Moringas Uses

All parts of the Moringa tree are edible and have long been consumed by humans. Most parts of the plant are used as a medicine which
is why it is no surprise that many believe the greatest contribution of Moringa to health is its nutritional value (as evident by its commercial capability).

In the West, one of the best known uses for Moringa is the use of powdered seeds to flocculate contaminants and
purify drinking water. Applied as a simplified, point-of-use, low-risk water treatment, Moringa is helping rural and peri-urban people
living in extreme poverty who are presently drinking highly turbid and micro-biologically contaminated water. Furthermore, the Food and Nutrition Unit at the Ministry
of Agriculture has identified nutrient-rich Moringa, as a potential solution to vitamin A deficiency in poverty stricken Malawi.
Celebrities see the value of Moringa too: WBO Welterweight Champion, Manny Pacquiao, reportedly eats Moringa as part of his training regime (source: examiner.com) and Madonna planted a Moringa tree in Malawi in October 2009 as part of her Raising Malawi charity organization (source: New York Post.

"Moringa leaves in particular are a rich, inexpensive source of micro-nutrients."
(Dr. C. Gopalan, President, Nutrition Foundation of India)
Global Demand: Commercial

Health: Yelixir Moringa Capsules

Manufacturer and retail giant, Grenera Nutrients, saw the massive health potential of Moringa and created the brand Yelixir to introduce its 100% Moringa leaf powder capsules product to the market. Loaded with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytonutrients; the capsules reportedly aid in the fight
against more than 300 diseases. Each 120 capsule bottle retails at approx $15.

Global Demands: Bio Diesel

"Bio-fuels provided 1.8% of the world’s transport fuel in 2008."
(United Nations Environment Program, 2009)
Bio-diesel production
Bio-energy, defined as energy produced from organic matter or biomass, has recently become one of the most dynamic and
rapidly changing sectors of the global energy economy. Accelerated growth in the production and use of bio-energy in
the past few years is attracting interest from policy makers and investors around the globe.
In simple terms, bio-fuels are fuels that are derived from biological sources such as cereals and grains, organic waste and oil-seed
crops such as sunflower.
In as early as 2005, global bio-diesel production reached 3.8 million tonnes of which approximately 85% was derived from
the European Union (The Futurist, 2007). Bio-diesel is commonly produced from a variety of natural crops including rapeseed, soybean, mustard, flax, sunflower, canola, palm oil, hemp and waste vegetable oils. In the United States, soybean oil alone accounts for 90% of all fuel stocks.
Current production however, is not sufficient to replace liquid fossil fuel use. If using only traditional food plants, most nations
do not have sufficient arable land to produce bio-fuel for the nation’s vehicles. A key concern in poor rural areas is the competition of biomass
energy systems with the present use of biomass resources in applications such as animal feed and bedding, fertilizer, and construction materials.
These may be of higher priority to rural populations, as alternatives may not exist.

Supply does not meet demand.
If the entire arable land of the USA (190 million hectares) were devoted to biodiesel production this would only just
provide the 160 million tonnes required for diesel fuel and home heating!
Importance of bio-fuels
Energy Security: Bio-fuels can readily displace petroleum
fuels and, in many countries, can provide a domestic
rather than imported source of transport fuel
Environment: Bio-fuels are generally more climate-friendly
than petroleum fuels, with lower emissions of CO2 and
other greenhouse gasses
Fuel quality: Refiners and car manufacturers have become
very interested in the benefits of bio-fuels in order to boost
fuel octane
More sustainability in transportation: Bio-fuels are derived
from renewable energy.

"Initial results confirm the drought tolerance of Moringa and especially the quick
growth rate. Positive results in terms of yields will lead to real landscape changes and
the production of large, continuous and reliable quantities of biodiesel."
http://www.agric.wa.gov.au

Moringa as a biofuel

Higher recovery and quality of oil than other crops which
allows for lower cost processing while producing the
highest grade of Bio-diesel and Glycerine by-product
No direct competition with food crops as it is an edible
source of fuel
No direct competition with farm-land as it can be grown
for both purposes at the same time and it thrives in land
where most agricultural produce would not survive.
The oil from the Moringa tree is considered to be a
more sustainable bio-diesel feedstock than jatropha oil
by those who argue that sustainability is better served
by feed stocks that can yield both food and fuel (source:
Bio-diesel Magazine).

Moringa Oil

Whilst moringa oil is already being used as a source of second
generation bio-diesel; it wasn’t considered to be an oil source by
many because it has so many food sources.
Experts such as K. Shaine Tyson, a strategic planning, biodiesel
technology evaluation and market development consultant
for Rocky Mountain Biodiesel Consulting LLC, has conducted
extensive research on Moringa and advocate its use as a viable
and sustainable bio-diesel feedstock.
“Moringa can yield about 3 tonnes of seed per hectare. The seeds
contain 30 to 40 percent oil that is high in oleic acid and the
meal yields about 61 percent protein.
Moringa has better oxidative stability than bio-diesel made with
most other feed stocks and the seeds are relatively easy to crush
using non solvent-based crushing techniques.
I believe it’s better than sunflower oil.”

Global Market Price

Whilst a global market price for Moringa oil is in its infancy,
Dr Henry G Brockman (Project Manager of the Bio-Fuel Division
of the Department of Agriculture in Western Australia) foresees
prices equal to that of crude soybean oil (currently US$871* per
MT) for bio-diesel or Crude palm oil (currently US$798* per MT).
(iea.org)

Marawi Plant

“The Department of Agriculture-Biotechnology Program
Office in Marawi City has setup a system to develop the
Moringa plant’s seed (scientific name: Moringa Oleifera)
for use as feedstock in the production of biofuels. In the
Philippines the Moringa plant is more commonly known as
“Malunggay” or “Malungai”.

The Moringa Oil Manufacturing Plant of SECURA in
Marawi meanwhile is intending to use the oil harvested
from the moringa seeds to produce biodiesel which they
are then planning to export to the United States. The plant
is expecting to produce 150 million gallons of malunggay
seed oil per year. Initial capacity of the feedstock
plantation is 30,000 hectares then eventually going up to
100,000 hectares.”

Mozambique

"Mozambique is developing a bio-fuels industry with the hope of contributing to 15
percent of the national fuel consumption in the next five years."
(Bio-diesel Magazine, 2009)
Location
Situated on the Indian Ocean coast of Southern Africa, the
Republic of Mozambique is an emerging market and is
growing rapidly compared to its developed counterparts.
Boasting stunning beaches, lush national parks and colonial era
architecture, Mozambique is quickly growing to be one of the
continent’s top tourist destinations.
Its rich soil, fertile coastline and long-standing position as one
of the major mineral suppliers, adds to its potential to be a
superpower in alternative investments such as agriculture,
fisheries, minerals and bio energy.

The economy

Once considered one of the world’s poorest countries, since
1987 Mozambique’s government has embarked on a series of
macroeconomic reforms designed to stabilise the economy.

Foreign investment

According to the United National Conference on Trade and
Development: “The liberal economic reforms pursued by the
Government of Mozambique have laid the ground for profitable
investment in a number of areas: cash crops, manufacturing,
financial services, export processing (cashews, aluminium) and
others.”

Biodiesel Market

Mozambique is currently positioning itself as a major
bio fuels producer.
Mozambique’s investment promotion center started
approving bio fuel projects in the country in 2007, and so
far, foreign companies have invested approximately
US$710 million in producing 440 million litres of ethanol a
year, mainly from sugarcane.
The government has recently signed a huge US$10 million
investment agreement with the London Stock Exchange listed
Central African Mining and Exploration Company to
produce bio-fuel.
These steps, combined with donor assistance and political
stability following full democratic elections, have led to dramatic
improvements in the country’s growth and stability.

Investment

"Investors will enjoy a 14.5% return within 18 months."
(Alfonso Rivera Revilla, Chairman, Insight Group PLC)

The Project

Whilst the commercial sustainability of Moringa Oleifera has
proven itself over the past decade, this investment project is the

Insight Group PLC is the first to offer an investment in the
Moringa tree which confidently projects returns of 14.5% for the
harvest and sale of the crop.
We work first-hand with Platinum Management Associates Ltd.
who are responsible for the plantation, cultivation, harvest and
sale of the Moringa seeds. Quite simply, once you invest, your
land can be managed for you.

An abundance of labor supply means we are in the unique
position where we can ensure you receive returns based only on
how your land performs i.e. the number of seeds produced by
your hectare/s is weighed, recorded and reported. Your return is
based on the number of seeds we are able to sell on the market
on your behalf

Social Responsibility & Ethical Investing

Our commitment to Mozambique
In addition to creating hundreds of jobs, and in line with our responsibilities and commitment to the region of Mozambique, all produce (other than the seeds sold) will be donated to the workers, local villages, aid organizations and charities.
This will equate to approximately 600 Metric Tons of ‘green matter’ per hectare which research indicates will aid dramatically in the fight against severe malnutrition in the region.
According to Trees for Life, a US-based charity, Moringa leaves provide unrivaled nutritional value when compared to other crops. In fact, Moringa produces 350% more Vitamin A than carrots, over 7 times the Vitamin C value of oranges, in excess of 3 times the calcium content of cow’s milk, nearly 3 times as much potassium as bananas and more than double the protein of yogurt!
All products must meet our core values

Ethical

Insight values both the needs of the investor as well as those of the local communities where our projects are based.
With this in mind, an integral factor in our project planning and development is a verifiable local community plan that clearly enhances and advances the standard of living of the local communities. We equally do not believe in destroying natural resources nor using food-growing lands for commercial gains, whatever the profit available in doing so.
To this end, we ensure that our projects benefit the environment, providing added value from top to bottom.

Sustainable

Insight believes in renew ability – hence our interest in projects that serve sustainable needs such as food supply, bio-diesel production and nutritional supplements rather than sporadic and transitional ‘boom’ market opportunities.

Diverse

Insight believe in diversification outside of the standard vein of investment opportunities available. This is clearly illustrated in our interest in Vineyards, Bio-fuels and Mineral Exploration, as well as affordable housing and forestry for carbon offsetting purposes.

Security

Insight scours the globe, not only to identify profitable opportunities, but also to find investment security that gives confidence to our clients.
To this end, we ensure that all opportunities are housed and structured under UK Law (offering additional protection) and that all opportunities offer contractually guaranteed returns.

  1. Some good point written.
    Work of many people on this issue of plastic, there are several plastic materials recycling organic-based view. In February, for example, Imperial College London and bioceramic drug polymer biodegradable plastic from sugar derived from the decay of lignocellulosic biomass. There is also an existing plant more corn starch and plastics based on paper, including household goods and food packaging, bioplastics toys, plastic dynamic Cereplast. Metabolix also several lines of plastic products from corn, in cooperation with partner companies.

  2. Interesting news, actually we started planting Moringa this year in Mozambique in the Zambezia province. Currently 50.000 Moringa sticks are planted and additionally a community involvement programme is encouraging local communities.
    We aquired earlier 740 ha of land, we did trials with Moringa Oil already locally and capsules production will start soon.

    Maybe we can join effort?
