India can be an export hub due to Global Biofuel Alliance: Minister

India can turn into a major production and export hub for sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and give the country a chance to set international standards in the sector due to the recently launched Global Biofuel Alliance (GBA), said Union Minister for Petroleum and Natural Gas, Mr Hardeep Singh Puri. India has the feedstock for producing 19-24 million tonnes of SAF a year. The estimated maximum requirement of SAF in the country, even considering a 50 per cent blend, is 8-10 million tonnes per year by 2030, he added, as per a report.
