NEW DELHI: The Union Minister of Petroleum & Natural Gas. Hardeep Singh Puri said that the 10 percent target on biofuel blending was attained five months in advance, and 20 percent of the 2030 target had been advanced to 2025. Puri was addressing a gathering at inauguration of the 26th Energy Technology Meet.
Speaking on management of the three challenges in the energy sector i.e., availability, affordability, and sustainability, he said,“for a start we did not allow our challenge on sustainability to decelerate in fact we accelerate.”
The Minister added, “that we are shedding this limit of 20 percent as this limit was imposed on us ourselves since the automobile companies told that for 20 percent blending not much change is required in engines. But now, we have 20 percent blended fuel, and the process of setting up of ethanol and biogas plants etc. is underway rigorously, he added.”
