D1 Oils was founded in 2004 as a renewable fuels producer. The company uses a species of tree known as jatropha to produce its refined biofuels. Jatropha trees are able to survive in a wide variety of climates, and its seeds are known throughout the vegetable world for their extremely high oil content.

Other biofuels manufacturers saw the price of food go up as a result of investment in technologies that turned edible oils into fuel. This led to worldwide hunger riots and the decline of the edible oils industry for use in biofuels. However, D1 Oils managed to avoid that bump because Jatropha oil is inedible and doesn’t affect food prices around the world.

In October 2004, D1 Oils was first listed in the AIM. Its initial offering raised 11.5 million pounds. Subsequent offerings raised 26 million, 49 million and 14.9 million pounds in 2005, 2006 and 2008, respectively. As Britain’s leading jatropha-based biodiesel manufacturer, D1 is poised for growth in the years to come.

In 2007, oil producer BP and D1 Oils formed a joined venture to plant more jatropha trees around the world. Jatropha trees can be grown in poor quality soil, making it exceptionally convenient as an oil crop. The company has collaborated with many different world-class companies over the past five years and it has consistently been a high performer in the biofuels market, both when it was doing well and in recent years, when many other biofuels companies have gone out of business or have had to restructure their goals.

In April 2011, Siemens sought to develop a high-speed ferry that ran solely on biofuels from jatropha seeds. This ferry could prove highly useful throughout Europe, Asia and the world at large, and is seen by D1 Oils as an excellent opportunity for growth. As more information comes out on Siemens’ ferry development, expect the price of D1 Oils to fluctuate on the Alternative Investment Market.
