Union transport minister Nitin Gadkari, in a roundtable conference, ‘Driving the shift towards sustainable transport solutions’, organised by Scania Commercial Vehicles India, stressed on the importance of biofuels to de-carbonise and build a sustainable transport sector. Moderated by Vijay Chhiber, former secretary of the ministry of road transport, the roundtable discussion saw Gadkari emphasise on the availability of technology, and the economic viability achievable. “Bio-gas, bio-CNG and bio-ethanol are critical to reduce pollution and clean up the transport sector.
