  BIOFUELS – GoI Programme
      GoI: Committee on Biofuels, Planning
      Commission, July 2002.
      Report sub. April 2003
      Recommended :
           Ethanol [sugarcane (molasses)] for
           blending with petrol (gasoline)
           Biodiesel (Jatropha curcas) for blending
           with HSD (High Speed Diesel).




                                                                         5
Current Status: Ethanol
 2003
    5% ethanol blending in petrol made mandatory in 9
   states and 4 UTs w.e.f January 2003.
   Around 0.2 million kl of ethanol procured during 2003-04
 2004-05
   Sugarcane production suffered due to drought conditions
   in several parts of the country
   Mandatory blending later made subject to availability.
 2005-06
   Ethanol supply expected to improve during 2005-06
   Procurement of ethanol to restart




           Jatropha for Bio-diesel
                 Production
  Unlike Europe & USA India does not find it
  feasible to grow bio-diesel crop on agricultural
  land as it may jeopardize National Food Security.
  India is already deficient in edible oils and is
  importing the same.
  Jatropha cultivation proposes to use wastelands. A
  20.16 % of total geographical area (63.85 million
  hectares of India) classified as wasteland or un-
  cultivated land.
  Jatropha has low gestation period, is drought
  hardy, not grazed, high oil content & yield and is
  easily propagated both by seed and cuttings.
