Preparations are also underway to set up an advanced unit for commercial production of biojet fuel in India. The unit is likely to be established in a state in South India.

According to IIP scientists, it is not easy to find equipment for a commercial plant because all of its equipment is the same as that of a paid company. The Ministry of Petroleum is consulting with experts in this regard. Engineers India Limited is designing a large plant.
