Founder & CEO

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.

PureFuel Energy, founded in 2020, is backed by aviation specialists, professional pilots, and an experienced team of finance specialists. A team of Chemical Engineers and the country's best technical consultants guides PureFuel Energy on how to best utilize its technological capabilities. PureFuel Energy is India's longterm solution for retail and business-to-business biodiesel requirements. In India's key transportation hubs and highways, it manages and runs retail outlets and B2B biodiesel operations. Additionally, the firm relies on a strong network infrastructure of India's leading biodiesel manufacturers for supply, ensuring the highest quality biodiesel is available at its dealerships.

In an interview with CEO Insights, Dr. Bipin discusses the details of his journey as an entrepreneur in India's fossil fuel industry.

What Inspired You To Establish Pure Fuel Energy?
Since I was a youngster, I have always wanted to be a part of nature and the environment. As a result, all I can think about is doing something to help preserve our ecological landscape. Nature is the only source of inspiration for me.

Define Pure fuel Energy As An Organization And Where Is It Positioned In The Industry? What Are The Company’s Greatest Strengths And Unique Propositions That It Offers To Its Clients?
One of India's most prominent biofuel producers, PureFuel energy is dedicated to creating a healthy and long lasting environment. To minimize India's dependence on fossil fuels, we plan to introduce new renewable and technologically advanced fuels over the next 50 years in India and work closely with
the Indian government to achieve its goal of becoming India import free in Fuel Energy and its reliance.

PureFuel's BioDiesel will be the company's first step toward this objective. Also, Bangalore's Silicon India Startup magazine has nominated our company as one of India's Top 10 Green Energy Companies in 2021. This success would not have been possible without our team members and employees. In addition, we are committed to ensuring a pollution-free and secure environment as part of our unique offering.

For Me, The Key To Success Is Having A Clear Vision And Purpose In Mind, And Being Psychologically Prepared To Face Challenges As They Arise

Reflect On Some Of The Major Challenges You Have Experienced In Your Journey So Far? How Did You Overcome Them And What Did You Learn From Them?
In this industry, raw materials are becoming increasingly expensive and difficult to come by, posing a problem for not only our firm but for those in the biodiesel production industry as a whole. Another important concern is the black marketing of products when we sell our products to someone of excellent quality and they adulterate the same and practice black marketing of the similar. In India, there is a wealth of cutting-edge technology for this trade. This teaches me to better manage my resources and increase my accuracy.

What Has Been The Success Mantra That Constantly Helps You Arrive At Positive Outcomes?
For me, the key to success is having a clear vision and purpose in mind, and being psychologically prepared to face challenges as they arise. Never give up and always have a backup plan in place in case something goes wrong. You should also have faith in your own abilities and learn to face new obstacles with self-belief and bravery. In order to avoid needless and unneeded anxiety, it is always beneficial to have a positive approach. With a better state of mind, I'm able to overcome the difficulties of daily life and turn them into new possibilities. Consider the requirements and perspectives of our consumers at all times in order to gain and maintain their loyalty.

How Has Been Your Response To The Challenges Posed By The Covid-Affected Market And The Need For New Strategies? How Would You Describe Your Role In Tackling Those Challenges?
In general, COVID-19 has had an adverse influence on the investment industry. Startups are particularly sensitive to COVID-19's implications, and in reality, face a number of severe hurdles, both from a commercial and operational viewpoint, as a result. There has been a decrease in supply or demand for our firm, with the exception of startups that are active in the supply & technology and
resources sectors. In addition, I feel that we need to be flexible enough to adapt to changes in our surroundings.

In Your Professional Journey So Far, Which Are The Milestones That Bestowed You With Utmost Satisfaction Both As An Individual And As An Entrepreneur?
When I go to a random website and find that someone is using our product, I understand how much our product helps other people because I can see it in action. Since then, I've been driven by the exhilaration of creating something from nothing, and it's been the driving force behind my work ever since. When a firm hires a new employee, it is an exciting time for everyone involved. Those occasions when I couldn't believe that I was still running a firm that might provide employment and possibilities for people. It's bigger than I am, and that's the best reward for making a difference in the lives of others. Hiring is one of the many proud moments in my life.

Based On Your Strong Professional Experience, What Advice Would You Give To The Upcoming Entrepreneurs In The Same Industry?
To the aspiring entrepreneur in this field, I would say continue trying and keep your sights set on the goal you have set for your company. Set up a contingency plan in case of a change of environment or government regulations, and focus on the demands of the consumers and difficulties they are experiencing and meet their needs.

What Are Your Future Plans For Purefuel Energy?
India's dependence on deleterious products will be reduced over the next 50 years as PureFuel Energy introduces the newest, most sustainable, and technologically advanced fuels. Since nature preservation is a priority for us, this is our way of supporting eco-friendly products and presenting a greener alternative to fossil fuels. As a result, the organization has a well-respected council of aviation and finance professionals with decades of experience.

It's important to note that our biodiesel revolution team, which is devoted to bringing the next big change to India, also was able to meet critical milestones in record time. This is why Purefuel Energy has taken the initiative to plant India's largest palm tree grove on a 500-acre plot of land. Purefuel energy efforts can also help the government of India achieve its goal of reducing carbon emissions (Paris Agreement), as well as the country's national biofuel and edible oil policies.

There has been a 100 percent growth in PureFuel's revenue year over year. There will be a significant increase in revenue from Retail Outlet (RO) dealerships and other B2B sales for the company in the fiscal year 2025, not withstanding its involvement in both B2B and B2C sales. One more thing we can be pleased about, Pure Fuel's palm tree cultivation on 500 acer land is overseen by Nasim Ali, former CEO of Godrej Agrovet's Oil Palm Plantation Division.
