I am reasonably confident that 20 per cent ethanol blending target will be completed by 2025: Hardeep Singh Puri

After assuming the role of Minister of Petroleum and Natural Gas, Hardeep Singh Puri stated, “As you know, the Prime Minister had set a target of 20% blending by 2030…Based on what I have seen and the work in progress, I am reasonably confident that the 20% blending target, which was brought forward from 2030 to 2025, will be completed by 2025.”

Additionally, according to the latest Ready Reckoner report from the Petroleum Planning and Analysis Cell (PPAC), India is on track to achieve 20% blending by 2025, and E20 petrol is already available at 13,569 PSU outlets out of 81,529 total PSU Retail Outlets as of 30/04/2024. Successful Pilot Studies on E27 Fuel and Ethanol Blended Diesel Fuel have also taken place in the country.

To achieve the target of 20% blending by 2025, about 1016 crore litres of ethanol are required, and the total requirement of ethanol including for other uses is 1350 crore litres. For this, about 1700 crore liters of ethanol-producing capacity are required to be in place by 2025, considering the plant operates at 80% efficiency. The Government has estimated the demand for ethanol required for 20% blending by 2025, keeping in view the growth of petrol-based vehicles in two-wheeler and passenger vehicle segments and the projected sale of Motor Spirit (MS).
