Biodiesel is a clean-burning and renewable fuel generally produced in large quantities from vegetable oil/ fats and animal fats. Biodiesel is utilized on a large scale in many of the industries including transportation, mining, power generation, automotive, railway, marine and so on as an alternative for conventional diesel. Biodiesel is also helping India to diminish the dependency on foreign oil reserves as it is being produced domestically. Biodiesel can also be utilized in diesel engines at any proportions with simple or literally no modifications, according to various official sources. There are rising concerns about greenhouse gas emissions resulting in the use of renewable and clean, greener sources of energy. Hence, biodiesel fuels are rapidly replacing conventional fossil fuels across the globe. The government in many different countries is also backing eco-friendly alternatives such as biodiesel. In India, the government has encouraged the OMCs to procure standard Biodiesel and encouraged blending of Biodiesel in order to reduce dependence on foriegn oil reserves.
