Abstract :

In India, demand for fuel in spite of an increase in prices and extensive air pollution in metropolitan cities encourages in discussing the present status and future scope for biodiesel as an alternative fuel. Biodiesel is clean burning fuel, it can be produced from 100% renewable resources and also it possesses environmental benefits. It is necessary for our India to go for some alternative and eco- friendly fuel such as jatropha that can be cultivated in the barren lands of the country. According to the peak oil theory, the demand for oil will exceed the supply and the gap between the demand and supply will continue to grow, triggering an energy crisis by 2024. Bio-diesel which is produced from different sources, maybe considered as a supplementary fuel to the diesel fuel in CI engine applications. In addition, it also promises employment to rural people through the opportunities of cultivation of vegetable oil–bearing plants, and this may help improve the domestic economy. India’s first biofuel-powered flight that aims at reducing the costs of air travel by replacing the costly aviation fuel, made a successful test run recently.
