State Bank of India funds jatropha cultivation

D1 Oils plc ('D1 Oils'), the low cost global producer of biodiesel, today
announced a significant boost to its  renewable fuel programme in India as  D1
Mohan Bio Oils Limited, ('D1 Mohan'), its 50:50 joint venture, signed a 
Memorandum of Understanding ('MOU)') with the State Bank of India ('SBI') to
provide Rupees 1.3 billion (approximately  £15 million) to local farmers in
Tamil Nadu to plant up to 40,000 hectares of jatropha. The harvested seeds will
have  an anticipated yield of between 100,000 and 120,000 tonnes of crude
jatropha oil per annum (assuming the full 40,000  hectares are planted).  The
costs of servicing the loans will be deducted from the price paid by D1 Mohan
for the seeds.

D1 Mohan is a joint venture between D1 Oils and Mohan Breweries & Distilleries
Limited in India.  In January this year,  D1 Mohan announced it would aim to
plant up to 100,000 hectares of jatropha across India in 2005.  The financing 
arrangements are a key component of this plan. D1 Oils has the option to export
25% of the crude oil to its  international customers, with the bulk of the crude
oil being retained for domestic bio diesel production.  The use of  bank finance
to provide farmers with the ability to purchase seedlings and planting materials
enables the business in  India to expand more rapidly and conserve working

P Chaudhuri, Chief General Manager of SBI, said, 'Small farmers and landless
labourers will benefit as we shall finance  the cultivation. They shall find a
ready market for their produce from D1 Mohan.  The loans will be realised from
the  sale of the crop.'

M. Nandagopal, Managing Director of D1 Mohan, remarked, 'We believe the creation
of a sustainable, renewable energy  programme in India with all of the
associated economic and environmental advantages is important and this agreement
is  a very good step in the right direction.'

Philip Wood, CEO of D1 Oils, commented, 'This is a further endorsement of our
jatropha programme.  Obtaining external  finance for the farmers is an important
step for D1 Mohan towards achieving its objective of a rapid, large scale 
implementation of this programme in India.'
