Kenaf-bio-fuel from extracting oil from a kenaf seed is around 60% of the seed by weight, making it an excellent candidate for kenaf-bio-fuel. Since diesel engines have been known to burn bio-fuel from other sources, kenaf may play a part in this sector of renewable energy directly from seed in the future. That is if we reach a point of sufficient amount of extra seed. There is no where near enough kenaf seed available at this time (2018) to compete in the marketplace. On the other hand kenaf-bio-fuel may come from the bio-mass of the plant sooner than from seed.

Biomass resource is abundant in Malaysia. This can be considered as an alternative source of renewable and sustainable energy, with a promising future to fulfill continuous and uninterrupted supply of energy. Agricultural biomass such as Industrial Kenaf (Hibiscus cannabinus L.) has been successfully investigated as a great potential to be used as a renewable and sustainable feed-stock for the production of bio-energy. Kenaf regarded as a traditional crop of Malaysia. Kenaf biomass would appear as a potential material for great sustainable energy (bio-ethanol, bio-hydrogen, bio-energy) supplier in the coming future.

In our world changes are occurring faster and faster. Disruptive technology refers to any enhanced or completely new technology that replaces and disrupts an existing technology, rendering it obsolete.
Disruptive technology in the form of shared solar energy technology and software that supports it are trending towards a standard in 1/3 of our current population.
Description In business, a disruptive innovation is an innovation that creates a new market and value network and eventually disrupts an existing market and value network, displacing established market-leading firms, products, and alliances. Wikipedia
With that in mind and promising preliminary research using cellulose (part of the kenaf plant) to make solar electric nano sheets that produce more power output than conventional photo-voltaic solar cells, what would you expect the demand for kenaf to be?
With high capacity storage batteries right around the corner that can be made from kenaf and can be recharged in 5-6 seconds is something the right investors would also be excited about.
