Jatropha curcas seed, transverse section. Oil extracted from the seeds of the Barbados nut plant (Jatropha curcas) is used as a biofuel, and can be further refined into biodiesel, suitable for use in a conventional diesel engine. Biofuels such as biodiesel are clean, renewable sources of energy, and have less impact on the environment than fossil fuels such as diesel, petrol and coal.
