What are the capital costs for setting up a biodiesel plant in India?

The answer depends on whether you are setting up an integrated biodiesel plant in which you start with crushing of the oilseed or whether the starting point for your biodiesel plant is the vegetable oil.

For the case where the starting point is the vegetable oil, biodiesel plants cost about Rs 30-35 lakhs per T per day capacity. This plant comprises primarily refining and transesterification equipments.

For integrated biodiesel plants that also comprise equipments such as expellers and filter presses, the capital cost of setting up a biodiesel plant will be in the range of Rs 50 lakhs per T per day of capacity.
