2. INTRODUCTION In recent times, the world has been confronted with an energy crisis due to depletion of fossil fuel reserves and increased environmental problems. The tremendous use of petroleum products is responsible for alarming pollution of environment . This situation has lead to the search for an alternative fuel, which should not be only sustainable but also environment friendly. For developing countries, fuels of bio-origin such as ethanol, vegetable oil, biomass, biogas etc are becoming focus of attention. Shrinking crude oil reserves and limited refining capacity, world will have to depend heavily on imports of crude oil. From the point of view of protecting the global environment and the concern for long term supplies of conventional fuels, it becomes imperative to develop alternate fuels comparable with conventional fuels. Biofuels is the only alternative. 3. WHAT IS BIOFUEL ?Any fuel that is derived from biomass i.e., plant material or animal waste. Biofuels are liquid or gaseous fuels derived from renewable biomass. 4. Why Bio-Fuels? Increasing energy requirement Thrust on resource conservation Soaring oil prices Reducing availability Stringent environmental regulations 5. TYPES OF BIOFUEL: BIOGAS (Methane) BIOALCOHOL- (Ethanol) BIODIESEL. 6. BIOFUEL PLANTS: Jatropha Jojoba Karanjia Neem Mahua canola Pedilanthus Camelina CalotropisCastor oil PlantSoybeanJatrophaSunflower Palm oil Maize Wheat Potato SugarcaneRapeseed 7. GASIFICATION process heat, pressure, and steam to convert materials directly into a gas composed primarily of carbon monoxide and hydrogen. Thefeedstock is prepared and fed, in either dry or slurred form, into a sealed reactor chamber called a gasifier. Thefeedstock is subjected to high heat, pressure, and either an oxygen-rich or oxygen-starved environment within the gasifier. 8. Typical raw MaterialsCoal, petroleum-based materials, and organic materials. 9. Products of Gasification *Hydrocarbon gases (SYNGAS). * Hydrocarbon liquids (oils). * Char (carbon black and ash).CO +H2 (more than 85 percent by volume) & carbon dioxide and methane. Biogas Production Syngas 10. Gobar Gas Gobargas production is an anaerobic process Fermentation is carried out in an air tight, closed cylindrical concrete tank called a Digester 11.

Indiaalready has around 5000 BIOGAS plants.30million rural households in China have BIOGAS digesters.In2007, 12000 vehicles were fueled with upgraded biogas worldwide mostly in Europe.Biogaspowered train is already in service in Sweden since 16. Biogas- Feasibility in J and K About 70% of the population derives its livelihood from the agriculture sector and use agricultural residues, cattle dung cakes for cooking as fuel. Estimate shows availability of 87.06 lakh livestock in J and K state, which reflect the vast potential for biogas generation . If 60% of livestick @ 5 kg dung / livestock / day is utilised for this purpose, about 3.26 lakh family size biogas plants of 2-3m 3 could be run in the state. The biogas thus generated will suffice the needs of more than 42.57 lakh persons. Energy production will also save more than 1087.3 million tones of fuel wood. Biogas digested manure will be available for use in crops.Contd., 17. Biogas Technology ~ By SKUAST-K SKUAST-K has designed the suitable biogas plant for round the year production of methane gas under temperate climatic conditions.Floating drum type biogas plant with poly house, giving additonal heat was found successful for biogas production even at -6oC temperature.Technology being transferred to rural people of the region through field demonstrations, training programmes and installation of plants at farmers level.

Environmental Benefits Reduction of wasteExtremely low emission of greenhouse gases compared to fossil fuels.Saving time of collecting firewood.Protecting forests.Saving money.Improving hygienic conditions.Producing higher quality fertilizer.Reducing air and water pollution. 19. Bio Mass-Source of Energy Biomassalready supplies 14 % of the worlds primary energy consumption. On average, biomass produces 38 % of the primary energy in developing countries. USA:4% of total energy from bio mass, around 9000 MW---- INDIAis short of 15,000 MW of energy and it costs about 25,000 crores annually for the government to import oil. 20.

Reliance has taken up a project of 700million dollars for cultivation of Jatropha in Andra Pradesh.Mehla S K 2007 39. Jatropha in India : Promising bio-fuel crop for wastelandIn India, 5 large plants set up with a capacity of 300,000 liters per day, 4 medium size plants with a capacity of 30,000 liters per day, and a number of small plants with a capacity of 1,000 to 3,000 liters per day. Practically all plants are running at very low capacities, or closed due to lack of oil. (NNFCC, 2011) 40. Can Biodiesel From Jatropha work in India? India needs 200 Billion gallons of B--oil to replace transpot fuels usedWe required 384 mh of land for Jatropha cultivation is a big constraintIndia with just 2.4% of global area supports more than 17% of the human population and 18% of the cattleWhere do we find the oil for biodiesel?A sustainable source of oil is to be found before we can think of biodiesel.
