Britain's Sun Biofuels plans to grow about 5'500 hectares of the biofuel plant jatropha in Tanzania in the next 10 years, the firm's local subsidiary said on Thursday. Sun Biofuels Tanzania is in the final stages of acquiring 8'000 hectares of land west of the commercial capital Dar es Salaam. Peter Auge, Sun Biofuels Tanzania's managing director, told Reuters in an interview that the company planned to plant 70% of that with jatropha, while the rest would be left as forest or game parks. "If we plant 1'000 hectares a year, it will take us five to six years to plant the land", Auge said on the sidelines of a regional biofuels conference.
