India in talks with Germany for technology collaborations in biofuel sector, says IBA’s Gaurav Kedia

India is working to accelerate collaborations with Germany for advanced technologies in the biofuel sector, Gaurav Kedia, Chairman of Indian Biogas Association (IBA) told Moneycontrol.The government is looking at technologies from Germany to process feedstock which is not sugar-based such as paddy straw and municipal solid waste, said Kedia.“Raw material is always a big question mark. India is looking at proven technologies from Germany that could help process raw materials such as paddy straw, Napier grass, and municipal solid waste,” said Kedia.The Indian government has been looking at developing infrastructure in the country for biofuel production from non-food crops or sugar-based crops to tackle the issue of energy security. Other than sugar crops, the industry is looking at feedstock such as agricultural waste and other solid waste for biofuel production.

In December 2023, the government banned the production of ethanol from sugarcane juice to ensure adequate availability of sugar for domestic consumption and to keep prices in check. The decision was, however, later reversed
