Title: India Alternative Fuel Infrastructure: The Potential for Second-generation Biofuel Technology

Abstract

This report is an attempt at understanding the potential for the adoption of a second-generation biofuel technology in India. It starts by laying out the state of play in 1G technology at a global level as well as in India. It then goes on to talk about the limitations of the 1G technology in India in meeting the GOI’s blending mandate. It then proceeds to lay out what 2G technology entails, what the cost numbers are for this technology and the possibility of deploying it on a commercial scale in India. It talks about some of the added advantages of 2G technology – primarily that it addresses the problem of pollution from stubble burning. It ends by identifying the limitations of 2G technology both at the global level and in India and talks about policies (currently in use and recommendations) that both encourage and impede its adoption.
