State-owned Indian Oil Corp (IOC) on Monday said it has developed technology that will help advance the use of non-edible oil extracted from plants like jatropha (bio-diesel) in auto fuels. "IOC has successfully developed and commercialised a technology to co-process non-edible vegetable oil in the existing Diesel Hydrotreating (DHDT) units of a petroleum refinery to make bio-diesel," the company said in a statement. This is first time in India, and possibly the first in the world, when jatropha oil has been used for co-processing in a petroleum refinery.
