Biofuels

  • Overview
  • Services
Biofuels are renewable liquid fuels derived from biological raw material and have been proved to be good substitutes for oil in the transportation sector. As such biofuels – ethanol and biodiesel- are gaining worldwide acceptance as a solution to environmental problems, energy security, reducing imports, rural employment and improving agricultural economy.

The gases emitted by petrol and diesel driven vehicles have an adverse effect on the environment and human health and there is universal acceptance of the need for reducing such emissions. One of the ways in which this can be achieved is through the use of ethanol and bio diesel and blending them with motor spirit and diesel respectively. The introduction of Biofuels is, therefore, a step in the right direction which simultaneously meets three objectives
  • Reducing emissions,
  • Reducing energy imports and
  • Improving the livelihood of farmers.
Biodiesel is made from virgin or used vegetable oils (both edible & non-edible) and animal fats through trans-esterification. It serves as a diesel substitute and requires very little or no engine modifications up to 20% blend and minor modification for higher percentage blends. The use of biodiesel results in substantial reduction of un-burnt hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide and particulate matters. It has almost no sulphur, no aromatics and has about 10 % built-in oxygen, which helps it to burn fully.

Ethanol is produced from starch extracted from rice grains, corn, tubers like cassava, Sugar plants (sugar beet or sugar cane) and Cellulose plants (general tree and biomass)
