Indian navy follows air force in use of biofuels

June 5, 2019 |

In India, the Hindu newspaper reports that the country’s navy is following in the footsteps of its air force and the US Navy by introducing 5% biodiesel into its High Speed Diesel for its naval fleet. The navy will replace around 315,000 liters of fossil diesel annual as a result of the shift. Biogas plants to process organic waste will also be installed at naval bases in an effort to reduce LPG consumption. The push towards biofuels is in line with the navy’s wider strategy to switch toward more renewable energy consumption.
