The Union Ministry of Road Transport & Highways on 31 July 2015 formulated a Draft Notification for Mass Emission Standards for Bio-diesel (B100) fuelled vehicles also called flex-fuel bio-diesel vehicle.

The Draft rules further seek to amend the Central Motor Vehicles Rules, 1989 and these Rules may be called Central Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Rules, 2015.

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 notification provides for 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 compatibility of vehicle to level of bio-diesel blend or B100 shall be defined by the vehicle manufacturer and the same shall be displayed on vehicle by putting a clearly visible sticker.

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 included in the draft notification.

This Draft is for wider consultation with all the stakeholders so that vehicles fuelled on bio-diesel (B100) or in all similar blends of bio-diesel with diesel can be manufactured and used in the country.
