Moringa leading the Biofuels Industry

The biofuels industry has received aggregated attention in recent years and the quest for alternative energy has become the buzz word for environmental activists and world leaders alike.


The global demand for second-generation biofuel has however not been without controversy with the “food vs. fuel” debate causing the industry to seek a more lucrative option. The most recent source is the Moringa Oleifera tree, which has reignited the hope for sustainable biofuel.

The Moringa tree or better known in Africa as the “miracle tree” has surfaced as a source of both biofuel and food. The Moringa tree is considered to be a more sustainable biodiesel feedstock than any other existing feed stocks. Moringa has been heralded as a wonder plant because it has no direct competition with food crops. The Moringa tree is fast becoming the best source of organic products from alternative fuel (biofuel), organic food products (both for human and animal consumption), cosmetics ingredients and is best for malnutrition control.

Most parts of the tree are used and the greatest contribution of Moringa to health is its nutritional value. The rapidly growing and drought resistant tree can be used for fibre, medicine and water purification. Furthermore, Moringa is also identified as a potential solution to Vitamin A deficiency in poverty stricken countries such as Malawi and Rwanda.

With Moringa bridging the gap between food and fuel, it can do well to silence the mouths of critics who are known to debate the negative consequences of the biofuels industry. The tree is very much poised to become the next big thing in the Biofuel market and many finance and investment firms are picking Moringa as an opportunity to provide rewarding returns in the commodities market.
