Being an alternative to fossils, biofuels can be applied to existing vehicles with little or no engine modification. ( ) Although they release CO2 when burned in internal combustion engines, they differ from fossil fuels partly because their use reduces the net emission of carbon dioxide and other gases associated with global climate change and partly because they are biodegradable.

Biofuels have had a long history of use in the transport sector. This began in the 1970s and early 1980s when a substantial increase in biofuels production and use in many countries resulted from high oil prices. But biofuels became less competitive vis-à-vis fossil fuels after the collapse of oil prices in the mid-1980s, and global interest in biofuels for transport waned considerably in the 1990s and the first years of the 21st century.

The recent sustained increase in international oil prices has once again highlighted the potential for biofuels to contribute to transport fuel demand, particularly in countries that import the bulk of fossil fuel supplies. Global concerns about the effects of fossil fuel use on the environment, as well as recognition of the benefits of energy supply diversification also support increasing biofuels production and use.

There is a lot happening in the field of biofuels in India, and to capture these, Aruvian's R'search brings you the complete guide to the Indian Biofuels Industry – Analyzing the Indian Biofuels Industry.

The report begins with an analysis of the basic know-hows one needs to be familiar with before starting on the fascinating journey of discovering the biofuels industry in India. The economics of biofuels, issues facing the industry, regulatory barriers as well as incentives, technologies involved, major types of biofuels, and many other topics are discussed in depth at the starting of the report.

Aruvian’s report then moves on to the sections dedicated to a thorough analysis of the Indian Biofuels Industry. Information and research included in this section ranges from an overview of the industry, issues the industry is dealing with, questions about price sustainability, risks involved in biofuel investment, and much more.

The huge support the biofuel industry receives from the Indian government in form of incentives, tax exemptions, favorable policies etc., and factors contributing to the success of the biofuel industry in the country are also focused upon in the report.

Moving ahead, the research report covers the Indian ethanol and biodiesel industry in-depth. These sections cover information pertaining to market statistics, various regulations governing these markets, production statistics, industry potential, market challenges, the various requirements for production of ethanol and biodiesel, and much more. Role of various ministries in the Indian biofuel industry is also looked upon briefly.

Case studies from the Indian biofuel industry makes up the concluding sections, with an analysis of the major projects ongoing & proposed.
