India currently imports ~83% of its crude oil requirement. Biofuels, an eco-friendly alternative, could help reduce dependence on crude oil-derived fuel. India has large quantities of solid and liquid wastes, which are expected to increase as urbanization accelerates. Converting waste into energy can have the dual benefit of reducing dependence on imported energy and reducing environmental stress. How can policy measures such as the Ethanol Blending Programme (EBP) and Bio-diesel from Used Cooking Oil (UCO) help promote biofuels? What technological innovations are needed to significantly scale up biofuel production in India? What incentives are needed to attract private investment in the entire value chain?
