India looking at potential biodiesel blending mandate

December 21, 2015 |

In India, the government called a meeting of biodiesel producers for Monday to look at how the 2009 biofuel law could be amended, especially in the case of biodiesel. A potential mandatory blend for biodiesel was to be part of the discussion. The country has installed demand of 1.2 million metric tons of production annually at 25 plants but only five are currently operating due to low demand. The 2009 law aims to have 20% biofuel blending by 2017 but only ethanol has a specific mandate, at 5%.
