Ethanol mixed petrol in India will come into use within 6 months

The Central Government is all set to promote ethanol as an alternative fuel in coming times. According to a statement made by Nitin Gadkari, Union Minister of Road Transport and Highways in SIAM annual convention 2021, the ministry will be expanding the network of ethanol pumps across the country in the next six months. For this move, the Central Government has already ordered the petroleum companies of the public sector to start ethanol pumps in the regions where ethanol is already available.

Adding to the development, Mr Tarun Kapoor, Secretary, Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas, said that 100 per cent ethanol (E100) is already available at three retail outlets. After this announcement, the number of outlets is only going to expand in upcoming times. To match the progress, automakers should also start developing new vehicles with flex-fuel engines
