Best Biofuel Stocks in India: Biofuels are renewable energy sources obtained from living organisms. Biodiesel, Corn ethanol, and biogas from organic byproducts are the most common biofuels. Renewable energy lessens the demand for a limited amount of nonrenewable resources such as fossil fuels.

Biofuels have the ability to totally replace fossil fuels and decarbonize the transportation sector. This will assist the globe in meeting its carbon neutrality targets on time.

One of the last initiatives India took as part of its G20 presidency was the formation of a Global Biofuel Alliance. 

A total of 19 countries and 12 international organizations have decided to join the alliance with India, USA, and Brazil, the founding member countries. The alliance’s goal is to develop and promote biofuels, as well as to increase global access to bioenergy.
