  1. Nice blog Chetna,

    So what could be the reason of not having any bio-fuel manufacturing plant in northern part of India, are there demographic challenges or import plays role in cost contribution or the availability of raw material (seed oil, algie waste, etc.)?

    1. Thank you Sir.
      The big producers export biodiesel to the Europe and other countries.
      This is one of the main reasons for their being set nearby the coastal areas.

      1. Hmm, make sense from export point of views.

        But doesn’t make sense why there isnt motivation and incentive to use all produce domatically. We have high foreign dependence on fossil fuel and these producers indirectly reduce that burdon, then why isn’t Government offset the cost (if thats the primary reason for export) and buy from these manufacturers. Such initiative would promote manufacturing in other parts of India too.

      2. Chetna,

        There are no cost economics to export biodiesel. The rate for biodiesel in the U.S. is 50 cents per gallon. This works out to approximately Rs. 9 per liter. The cost of producing the biodiesel is going to be more than this value + refining has to be carried out. A biodiesel refinery calls for huge capex.

        There are other biofuels that have better value addition but these are also in being produced in India.

  2. Thanks for the nice article on biofuel companies. I am interested to know whether the companies have collaboration with foreign company or not. If possible kindly mention the product analysis.

    1. We do not have any JV with any foreign company. Our Co-Founder and CTO has over 45 years expertise in the area of biofuels from wastewater.

  15. I am from u.p. i want know about bio diesel pump is their any risk in future for purchase bio diesel and where we buy form diesel

  16. An update.

    We are working on setting up a facility in Gujarat that will treat wastewater with microalgae and produce ABE (Acetone, Butanol, Ethanol) + Biodiesel.

    Butanol is a better biofuel than ethanol as it is less aggressive on the engine than ethanol, it has a higher energy ratio than ethanol and can be added to automobiles without any alterations required for the engines.

    Butanol can be blended in higher percentages to petrol than ethanol.

    1. Hi Chetan, I want to know the complete detail for this. Because i am also interested in this project and want to set up a new project on it. So please share the details like process, cost, machinery etc with me.

  24. Hello
    We are looking for Biodiesel Plant setup.We are also open to any kind of JV partnership. Please feel free to share your inputs at

  25. Most Of the biodiesel distillers have large quantity of “Crude Glycerin” as the residue. Refining this crude glycerin is not cost effective and hence the manufacturing units have thousands of liters with no idea of disposal.


    We install power plant using crude glycerol /glycerin as the fuel. The flue gas which contains Poisonous gas “Acrolein” is treated and you obtain ACRYLIC ACID which has better sales prospects than glycerin.

    19 liters of crude glycerin per hour generates 8 KWe of power for your use.

    Contact for further assistance.

Karnataka to get $50 million dollars for biofuel

In India the Karnataka States’ Biofuel Development Programme  is set to get a boost in the form of  $50 million dollars from International Fund for Agriculture Development (IFAD). The loan can be utilized in various activities such as plantation of biofuel crops and production. Biofuel Development Board of Karnataka has been active in promoting biofuels and  has established biofuel information and demonstration centres with about 100 l per day capacity in each district. These centres are being scaled up to 150-200 l capacity. The Board also owns a 500 litre biodiesel production plant at Hatti Gold Mines. The loan conditions include 1% interest with a 50-year repayment period.

China’s first commercial flight powered with biofuel was successfully completed

China's first commercial flight powered with biofuel was successfully completed between Shanghai and Beijing. The privately owned Hainan Airlines flight used biofuel made up from used cooking oil collected from the restaurants. The biofuel was supplied by China National Aviation fuel company and energy giant Sinopec. It was a Boeing 737 plane which used 50% biofuel blended in conventional jet fuel and carried more than 100 passengers to their destination.

India achieved only 1.4% ethanol blending this fiscal year

Problems between sugar mill owners and oil marketing companies have resulted in only 1.4% ethanol blending through february this fiscal year which is way less than the blending target of 5% and lesser than the last year's achieved blending level of 2%.The National Policy on Biofuels of India identifies the sugar cane molasses as the feedstock suitable under Indian conditions for ethanol production for blending purpose and that makes the sugarcane mills as the biggest suppliers of bioethanol. The high state-level levies on the biofuel and the requirement of obtaining permits from authorities have been sited as the major impediments for producing bioethanol by Sugar Mills. The government has set the selling price of ethanol for sugar mills @  Rs. 48.50/litre  if the depo of the oil marketing company is within 100 km from distillery and  @49.50/ litre  if the depo is beyond 300 km. The producers claim that the long distance transportation also reduces their margin. India needs approximately 115 crore litres of ethanol to meet the 5% target. Read more at
