It has met only 5% of the target by 2016 due to regulatory hurdles. Sugarcane sector which is mostly present in co-operative sector which finds difficulty in raising investment for ethanol production . Further fluctuation in sugar price also affects production. Bioethanol is also inflammable which brings risk and increases safety measures and costs. Another hurdle is excise duty on transportation and storage of ethanol have to be revised and incentivised when compared to crude oil. Most commuter vehicles are yet to be ready for bio-fuels, where efforts to be multiplied to bring them for effective take off for bio fuels.

The developed world has moved from first generation fuels of bio ethanols to third generation fuels like fuel cells. Now India should make progress to kick off projects in second generation fuels like syngas and methanol.
