Indian UCO biodiesel industry impeded by lack of supply chain

January 9, 2018 |

In India, the lack of an established supply chain for used cooking oil has impeded the growth of UCO biodiesel, something that must be addressed if more producers are to pop up around the country or if producers want to increase their production. The main competitor for non-edible UCO are soap makers who pay a slightly higher price than biodiesel producers do, but the lack of awareness among the hospitality industry that biodiesel is an option, for example, limits the availability of supply further. Although Karnataka and others have invested in biodiesel demonstration plants, the information isn’t getting out to the market sufficienctly to boost those supplies.
