Ethanol blending with petrol may reach 7.2 pct in 2018-19 season from 4.2 pct last year
"If all the 237 crore litre is successfully blended in the country in the current year, about 7.2 per cent of petrol consumption will get substituted by this environment-friendly bio-ethanol," ISMA said. The new Biofuel Policy 2018 has fixed a target of achieving 20 per cent ethanol blending with petrol by 2030.
Ethanol is rich in oxygen and, therefore, is considered to be the best oxygenate in the world. The extra oxygen helps the balance petrol to burn more efficiently within the vehicle engine. Photo: Pixabay
