In a First, Karnataka’s Transport Authority May Produce Biofuel. Here’s How

Submitted by on June 9, 2016 – 4:29 pmNo Comment

By Arka Bhattacharya (The Economic Times)  …   Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation is in talks with Hyderabad-based Advait Bio Fuel to jointly establish a bio-diesel production facility in the state, potentially becoming the first transport utility in the country to produce its own fuel.

Bio-diesel is made from raw materials such as palm sterene, waste vegetable oils and animal fat and is far less polluting than regular fuel. It is also cheaper by Rs 5 a litre over high-speed diesel for KSRTC as per its agreement with Adavit.

The biofuel used in KSRTC buses will be a blend called B-20: a mix of 80% high-speed diesel and 20% biofuel that doesn’t require engines to be modified. KSRTC plans to add 1,700 buses to its existing fleet of 675 bio-diesel vehicles. It is also running three modified Scania buses that use B-100 fuel, which is 100% bio-diesel.

Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation, too, on Sunday rolled out 135 bio-diesel buses on a trial basis. READ MORE and MORE (Biofuels International)
