Biofuel in India
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Biofuel development in India centers mainly around the cultivation and processing of Jatrophaplantseeds which are very rich in oil (40%). The drivers for this are historic, functional, economic,environmental, moral and political. Jatropha oil has been used in India for several decades asbiodiesel to cater to the diesel fuel requirements of remote rural and forest communities; jatropha oilcan be used directly after extraction (i.e. without refining) in diesel generators and engines. Jatrophaprovides immediate economic benefits at the local level since it grows well in dry marginal non-agricultural lands, thereby allowing villagers and farmers to leverage non-farm land for incomegeneration. As well, increased Jatropha oil production delivers economic benefits to India on themacroeconomic or national level as it reduces the nation's fossil fuelimport bill for diesel production(the main transportation fuel used in the country); minimizing the expenditure of India's foreign-currency reserves for fuel allowing India to increase its growing foreign currency reserves (which canbe better spent on capital expenditures for industrial inputs and production). And since Jatropha oil iscarbon-neutral, large-scale production will improve the country's carbon emissions profile. Finally,since no food producing farmland is required for producing this biofuel (unlike corn or sugar caneethanol, or palm oil diesel), it is considered the most politically and morally acceptable choice amongIndia's current biofuel options; it has no known negative impact on the production of the massiveamounts grains and other vital agriculture goods India produces to meet the food requirements of itsmassive population (circa 1.1 Billion people as of 2008). Other biofuels which displace food cropsfrom viable agricultural land such as corn ethanol or palm biodiesel have causedserious priceincreases for basic food grains and edible oils in other countries.
 
Seeds from theJatropha curcasplant are used for the production of bio-fuel, a crucial part of India's plan to attain
 
energy sustainability.
India's total biodiesel requirement is projected to grow to 3.6 Million Metric Tons in 2011-12, with thepositive performance of the domestic automobile industry.Analysis fromFrost & Sullivan,
Strategic  Analysis of the Indian Biofuels Industry 
, reveals that the market is an emerging one and has a longway to go before it catches up with global competitors
[1]
.The Government is currently implementing an ethanol-blending program and considering initiatives inthe form of mandates for biodiesel. Due to these strategies, the rising population, and the growingenergy demand from the transport sector, biofuels can be assured of a significant market in India. On
