  • India is the third-largest importer of crude oil, importing over 85 percent of the petroleum it processes. Currently in India, the Covid-19 outbreak and the ongoing war have increased the price of oil and gas, and the government is concerned about the forthcoming consequences. Furthermore, recent research by the Council for Energy, Environment, and Water (CEEW) identified several daunting obstacles to India's transition from a fossil fuel based economy to one based on renewable energy. To begin, there is the technological, administrative, and regulatory capability necessary to handle this transformative change. Then there is the big financial limitation, as the change will need large scale, high risk, long term investments. Also, there is little budgetary flexibility for large scale governmental investment in renewable energy, while private sector investment in renewable energy is only getting started. To address all of these limitations and to herald the next great revolution in the Indian biodiesel industry, Dr. Capt Bipin Arya founded PureFuel Energy.
