   Fuels play an important role in our day to day life. Fossil fuels are non-renewable and currently supply more than 80% of the world's energy. Fossil fuels largely contribute towards our energy requirements. Fossil fuels that are burnt release large amount of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere leading to global warming. 

   Clean fuels are produced from a variety of feedstocks, such as agricultural residues , Biomass, industrial organic waste and municipal waste. Clean fuels include liquid and gaseous alternatives to fossil fuels such as 1G & 2G Ethanol, Biodiesel, Compressed Biogas (CBG), sustainable aviation fuel, green hydrogen and many more. Carbon neutral or carbon negative fuels produce lower greenhouse emissions than traditional fuels on a life-cycle basis.

 

    India is currently consuming around 44.4 lakh barrels of crude oil everyday, out of which 34.3 lakh barrels are imported. i.e. nearly 80% of it's need is met by import.  National Biofuel Policy 2018 aims at replacing the fossils fuels significantly with Biofuels. India has achieved 10% blending of Ethanol in Gasoline 5 months ahead of its target and advanced the 20% blending target to 2025 from 2030. Bio Diesel blending in Petroleum diesel, ambitious CBG programs have been unveiled. Moving ahead India is looking at Sustainable aviation fuel, Methanol and Hydrogen as futuristic fuels.  These initiatives are expected to help India to   reduce its emission by 45% by 2030 and NET Zero target by 2070.

    SATAT (Sustainable Alternative Towards Affordable Transportation) scheme has been initiated by government of India to extract economic value from biomass waste in the form of compressed Bio Gas (CBG) and bio-manure.  The scheme encourages entrepreneurs to setup CBG plants, produce and supply CBG to Oil Marketing Companies (OMC) for sale as automotive and industrial fuels. SATAT has ambitious plans of setting up 5000 commercial plants and to produce 15MMT of Compressed Bio Gas (CBG). (https://satat.co.in)

    India's clean fuel (Bio fuel) targets has challenges of land allocation, feedstock supply chain issues, low-cost financing and by product valorization and creation of innovative markets. The conclave will attempt to address some of these concerns and issues.
