20 percent ethanol blending will begin its gradual rollout in April.

The Union Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas announced that the gradual rollout of ethanol blending with 20 per cent will begin in April.

India has increased the amount of ethanol that is mixed into gasoline from 1.53 per cent in 2013–14 to 10.17 percent in 2022. It has also moved its goal of achieving 20 per cent from 2030 to 2025–26.

The government is also setting up five 2G ethanol biorefineries, including Panipat (Parali) in Haryana, Bathinda in Punjab, Bargarh (Parali) in Odisha, Numaligarh (Bamboo-based) in Assam, and Devangere in Karnataka, all with a focus on cleaner energy sources.

In addition, the Centre has taken steps to ensure that the bio manure produced during CBG production is bundled with fertilisers like urea and raised the rate for compressed biogas (CBG) plants from Rs 46 per kg to Rs 54 per kg.

The National Green Hydrogen Mission, which aims to make India a global center for producing, utilising, and exporting such technologies, was officially approved by the Union Cabinet. The mission's initial expenditure, which includes research and development, is estimated to be Rs 197,440 million.

Industrial, transportation, and energy sectors will gradually become decarbonised as a result of the green hydrogen mission; among other things, less reliance on imported fossil fuels.

The government's Hydrogen Mission aims to reduce fossil fuel imports by over Rs 1 trillion annually, increase green hydrogen production to 5 million tonnes annually, add 125 gigawatts of renewable energy capacity, attract over Rs 8 trillion in investments, create tens of thousands of jobs, and so on.
