BioDiesel Marketing

The break even price for Palm Stearine flucuates in the range of +/-10% depending on season. (Break even price is calculated for different plant capacities in the project reports).

  1. It is upto 10% higher compared to break even price, in summer months as demand of Palm Stearine for manufacture of Biodiesel is high due to higher atmospheric temperature.

  2. It is upto 10% lower compared to break even price, in winter months as demand of Palm Stearine for manufacture of Biodiesel is low due to lower atmospheric temperature.

5 to 6 Biodiesel plants having capacity of 100,000 liters per day each, are coming up in next few months. Emami is expanding its plant while a US based company wants to set up a 300,000 liters per day plant in India. This will lead to acute shortage of raw material and will lead to a price war.

General Conditions in all the tenders - as a PDF document


    Oil marketing companies buy Biodiesel at Depots mentioned in the latest Tender. Their conditions are
  1. Minimum supply should be 100 Kiloliters per quarter at any depot.

  2. It should be as per IS Stanadard, IS 15607 : 2022. (If you use Palm Stearin or Animal Tallow as raw material, it will be challenging to achive properties like, Cloud Point, Pour Point and Cold Filter Plug Point. If you use Acid Oil as raw material, it will be challenging to achive property like Sulphur content).

  3. It should be delivered to their depots.

To produce BioDiesel as per Indian Stanadard, IS 15607 : 2022 (or European Standard), you need to install Ultrasonic or Shock Wave generator. Also you need to use Centrifugal Separators for better separation. These two equipments are expensive. Installing these is not viable for plants having capacity less than 30,000 liters per day. However US Standard ASTM D-6751, can be achived without these two costly equipments.

Another hazard for small plants is, control of Methanol Storage. If not controlled properly, it may find its way to illicit liquor and deaths of poor people.

to see ups and downs of BioDiesel Purchase Prices in Past

Oil Marketing Companies had offered a base price of BioDiesel at

  1. Rs. 106 per liter, in first Expression of Interest, in July 2022, produced from raw material other than UCO as raw material.
    BioDiesel base price was earlier set at Rs. 106 per liter. Due to this prices of Palm Stearin and Animal Tallow (only raw materials available in India), shot up beyond Rs. 95 per kilogram. It will benefit the parties producing raw materials, and BioDiesel Manufacturers may not afford the price. The raw material price will fluctate based on base price offered by OMCs.

  2. In March 2023, it was reduced to 86.67 per liter.

  3. Base price of Biodiesel for the procurement period July to September 2023 was Rs.88.82 per Litre, but actual price on which the monthly Purchase Order shall be placed will be declared 7 days before the beginning of the procurement period and subsequently every month, which will be capped in the range of +/-2.5% of the base price published in the EOI.

However BioDiesel is a favoured fuel by companies using Diesel for

  • Stone Crusher
  • Bulldozer, Excavators
  • Diesel Electricity Generating Sets (DG Sets)
Current Trend is to use Biodiesel, as Fuel for these 3 applications. The advantages are
  • Procurement of BioDiesel in Tanker Loads, or in Barrels from manufacturers is very easy, as compared to buying Diesel from Petroleum Oil Marketing Companies.

  • BioDiesel is injected in Stone Crusher, Bulldozer, Excavators and DG Sets at higher pressure. Hence its viscosity is not a problem at that pressure.

  • Stone Crusher and DG Set is a stationary engine. Bulldozer, Excavators are local vehicles. Hence, any problem can be attended at site.

  • BioDiesel is not adulterated with Kerosine, MTO or Naphtha.

  • You do not need to visit Petrol Pumps for supply of Diesel and Beg for supply of Diesel Oil.

  • BioDiesel manufacturers are more co-operative than Oil companies.
