Minister for Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari has emphasised the importance of alternate biofuels for diversification of agriculture towards the energy and power sector. Inaugurating the country’s first LNG Facility plant at Nagpur he said in our economy we are spending Rs 8 lakh crores for the import of petrol diesel and petroleum products which is a big challenge.
Gadkari said, "We have designed a policy that encourages the development of imports to substitute cost-effective pollution-free and indigenous ethanol, bio CNG, LNG and hydrogen fuels. He said the ministry is constantly working on different alternative fuels. He said we have to use the surplus in rice, corn and sugar to prevent them from going waste."
