Abstract: In Uttar Pradesh (UP) state of India, during 2003-04, transport sector has consumed about 2150 million liters [ML] diesel while the projected demand for the same alone may be 2987 ML by 2020. Considering 20% blend of biodiesel in diesel, requirement of UP would be about 596 ML of biodiesel, which could be produced from non-edible oil resources especially Jatropha. This will save foreign exchange and reduce CO2 emission. Paper presents potential of Jatropha cultivation on the available wastelands in UP and techno-economic study of biodiesel production and utilization for transport sector of the state with particular reference to Uttar Pradesh State Roadways Transport Corporation (UPSRTC).
