BANGALORE : In a significant development, the Bangalore International Airport Ltd (BIAL) entered into a partnership with the Karnataka State Biofuel Development Board (KSBDB) to adopt green technology for sustainability.
This makes BIAL the first airport in the country to adopt biofuel into its operations.
With a view to energy efficiency and reducing carbon footprint, BIAL will migrate operations of its ground vehicles to biofuel supplied by KSBDB now. “We have consciously taken this decision to implement and develop the Bangalore International Airport into a green facility and reduce the greenhouse gas emissions. Deploying biofuel reduces carbon footprint, in comparison to usage of fossil fuels and this is a responsible way to meet our energy needs. We are proud to have partnered with the Biofuel Development Board in their efforts to create an enabling and sustainable environment,” said Sanjay Reddy, Managing Director, BIAL.
