The blue planet and our very existence in it are in serious danger, owing to the depletion of natural resources and environmental degradation caused due the uncontrollable usage of fossil fuel. Excessive use of fossil fuel makes it the primary contributor to global warming, ozone layer depletion, and climate change.
Moreover, natural resources are limited, while the world population continues to grow at an alarming rate, leading to ever-growing needs. In such a scenario, BioDiesel offers the most viable solution!
Biodiesel is a renewable and clean-burning fuel. It is produced from resources like used cooking oil, vegetable oils, or agricultural soils. BioDiesel can work as an alternative form of fuel and can be produced in local refineries, which reduces the need to import expensive finished products from other countries. It provides the opportunity to create green jobs as well. Biodiesel contains no petroleum, but it can be blended at any level with diesel to create a biodiesel blend. It can be used in compression-ignition (diesel) engines with little or no modifications. It is simple to use, biodegradable, non-toxic, and essentially free of sulfur and aromatic content.
BioDiesel In India
With each passing day, India is making an increased contribution
towards making the planet Greener and Healthier!
The government of India introduced The National Policy on Biofuels in 2018. It aims to increase the usage of biofuels in the energy and transportation sectors of the country. Biodiesel is a game-changer for the energy security of our country. The government’s support and commitment in this direction is certainly an enabler for success.
Biodiesel has no petroleum and blends with diesel. It is an efficient fuel option that can be conveniently used in diesel engines with little or no modification. Public transport like railway network can operate on biodiesel. Considering the fuel crisis, it has become imperative to build the infrastructure for BioDiesel.
Biodiesel is an alternative fuel to conventional fossil fuels. It is a renewable and clean-burning fuel produced from resources like vegetable oil, used cooking oil, animal fat, or agricultural oil. It is free of sulfur and aroma. Therefore, it is 85% less polluting than fossil fuels. It is simple to use, biodegradable, and non-toxic.
In the current scenario, environmental degradation is at its peak. Biofuel offers one of the key solutions to resolving this pressing issue. Biofuel refers to renewable fuels generated from organic matter such as waste vegetable oil, used cooking oil, or palm oil, etc. It is an ecological alternative to traditional fuels.
Motivated by the vision of reducing our dependence on crude oil, we discovered that if collected and processed efficiently, used cooking oil has immense potential to achieve green fuel use in the country.
India, with its massive consumption of cooking oil, has a staggering possibility of becoming independent in the production of biodiesel.
