Draft notification regarding Mass Emission Standards for Bio Diesel

The Ministry of Road Transport & Highways formulated a Draft Notification for Mass Emission Standards for Bio-diesel (B100) fuelled vehicles. These standards have been long awaited by the industry especially those manufacturing bio-diesel and will provide alternate source of income to the farmers and the forest dwellers. The Ministry has also included the standards for test requirements for type approval and extension for four-wheeled and three-wheeled vehicles using both B100 and diesel as fuel, or either of the two. The standards also include the conformity of the production tests and the deterioration factor. Further, the technical specification of the reference fuel B100 has also been formulated.
