K Speu jatropha oil

JCT Jacam Energy Co, a joint venture between Cambodia and Japan, has begun producing jatropha oil from its US$400,000 factory in Kampong Speu province, company President Chheuy Sophors said. He said the company received approval to begin production last month. Chheuy Sophors said the factory was producing 100 litres per day but planned to boost production to 5,000 litres per day next year. He said the company was still discussing how it would price the oil, which can be converted into biodiesel. Ministry of Mines, Industry and Energy Undersecretary of State Sath Samy warned the company against setting prices itself, saying pricing was a matter for the government.
