Flora of Jordan for Sustainable Green Energy

This project is going to create a sustainable chain that aims to cultivate medicinal plant in neglected desert areas, by using rainfed or wastewater irrigation to produce Pharmaceutical oils and bioenergy, with further utilization of the residues for obtaining the organic agro products to achieve several environmental, health, social and economic impacts without compromising global food security.

Problem

Due to the fact that global energy demand will rise up to 60% by 2030, the world is facing several environmental challenges which have made the world warmer by 0.6 °C. So far, all the ideas that seeking to produce renewable energy, are still not able to achieve all of the 17th United Nations goals of the sustainable development. For these reasons, the oil-producing Mediterranean medicinal plants are one of the best options that can be utilized to achieve the sustainable development worldwide. Despite that, the biofuel production is considered as one of the most appropriate solutions to mitigate climate change, but it still faces many criticisms because of its disadvantages to the environment, and food security.

Solution

This project is going to create a sustainable chain that aims to cultivate medicinal plants in neglected desert areas, by using rainfed or wastewater irrigation to produce Pharmaceutical oils and bio-diesel, with further utilization of the residues for obtaining the organic fertilizers and forage to achieve several environmental, health, social and economic impacts without compromising global food security.

Target Beneficiaries


Within the public domain, the humanity and the global health, environment, and economy as a whole are the first and last beneficiaries of this idea. However, this idea is the cornerstone to distribute the cultivation of some neglected medicinal plant among rural societies of the Mediterranean and so the rural societies, agricultural farming enterprises, agricultural societies in developing countries, and companies working in the production of bioenergy, and organic agro products producers are the direct beneficiaries of this idea.

Mission and Vision

This project is going to create a sustainable chain that aims to cultivate medicinal plants resistant in neglected desert areas, by usingrainfed or wastewater irrigation to produce Pharmaceutical oils and bio-diesel, with further utilization of the residues for obtaining the organic fertilizers and forage to achieve several environmental, health, social and economic impacts without compromising global food security.

Innovation Description

This project is not only underpinning into maximizing the environmental, socioeconomic benefits of the Mediterranean medicinal plants as a source of biodiesel and other eco-friendly agro products but also is underpinning into their utilization to achieve rural development.

Competitive Advantage

Despite that, the biofuel production is considered as one of the most appropriate solutions to mitigate climate change, but it still faces many criticisms because of its disadvantages to the environment, and food security. This project is not only underpinning into maximizing the environmental, socioeconomic benefits of the Mediterranean medicinal plants as a source of biodiesel and other eco-friendly agro products but also is underpinning into their utilization to achieve rural development without affecting global food security

Planned Goals and Milestones

Several integrated and overlapping environmental, health, socio-economic impacts will be achieved as follows:

Environmental impact:

- Rehabilitation of poor lands and combating desertification.

- Minimizing the heavy metal environmental pollution

- Renewing the groundwater

- Utilization and optimization of the wastewater effluent

- Reduction and mitigation of the climate change, carbon dioxide emissions, and environmental pollution by several ways

Health Impact:

- Mitigation the environmental pollution and production of healthy agricultural raw materials that enter to the food chain.

Socio-economic Impact

- Encouragement and stimulation of the Mediterranean farming communities to rehabilitate the poor lands for the cultivation of the low input crops to produce the high outcome pharmaceutical oils and biodiesel.

- Achieving global food security by replacing non-food crops to produce biofuel instead of food crops (sugarcane, corn, and wheat).

- Creating low input sustainable resources to produce eco-friendly agro products.

- Creating new employment opportunities for both genders in the rural communities of the Mediterranean region.
