Ramesh says biofuels have a limited role in India

Indiaโ€™s Minister for Environment Jairam Ramesh said that biofuels have a limited role in India, a view which differs from the official line pushing for a 20% blend of such fuel in gasoline and diesel fuel by 2017. While pushing for hybrids and CNG-run vehicles, Ramesh, speaking at the Environment Friendly Vehicles Conference in New Delhi, said โ€œIndia has neither the land nor the agricultural liberty to promote biofuels.” (Friday, November 27, 2009)
