Castor oil for biodiesel in Brazil- where is the economics?

For some years now, I continue reading about efforts to make biodiesel from castor oil in Brazil, specifically by petrobras...

In this age of cheap oil, and given that castor oil is one of the costliest vegetable oils, I fail to understand why Brazil is still interested to pursue this avenue?

Anyone has any thoughts or guesses??
