Tamil Nadu Ethanol Blending Policy 2023(Sectoral)

The Tamil Nadu Ethanol Blending Policy seeks to support indigenous production of fuel-grade ethanol under the EBP Program. Given the fluctuations in crude oil prices, it is prudent for pioneer States like Tamil Nadu to augment biofuel production within the State using indigenous sources which could partly insulate the import price shocks, address the pollution concerns, and enhance agricultural output and its utilization.  The main vision of this policy is to promote Tamil Nadu as a green economy and investment hub for alternate cost-effective green fuel. It seeks to improve farmer income through expansion in opportunities in ethanol blending and also to mitigate climate change risks through the reduction in air pollution that arises from fossil fuels.
