Our Purpose

BiofuelCircle Private Limited, based in Pune, India, founded in June 2020, is registered as a start-up with the Start-up-India program. The driving force behind the creation of BiofuelCircle was a strong will and need to build a reliable and cost-effective bioenergy supply chain.


Around 235 million tons of agricultural residue goes waste every year in India.

This residue has the potential to meet 17% of India’s energy needs but more than 70% of this gets burnt or wasted due to a combination of reasons.

Fragmented Rural Sources:

Small and spread-out land holding makes aggregation difficult.

Low Economic Incentives:

Very low economic incentive for rural participants to avoid crop burning.

Seasonal Availability:

High cost of storage Market Access: Inability of rural suppliers to have direct access to industrial buyers.

We want to create a viable model for utilizing this opportunity using digital technology. BiofuelCircle platform provides an end-to-end support for biomass, biofuels, and bio-products. It solves the problem of reach and logistics.

It helps create a reliable supply chain for bioenergy; coupled with dynamic market-based participation.
