    Please e mail me at johnsavage@earthlink.net if you are still interested in learning more about Jatropha and have land available.

    While there are many players working in the development of Jatropha as a biofuel our business model is different and offers those with land much greater returns than they see in the typical deal.

    Please contact me if you would like to hear more about our opportunity.

    Please advsie the legal body of IKF in Thailand since we could not find any of your name legally registered in Thailand.

    To claim such big investment without any legal back up in Thailand would misguide .mislead the public .
