Mission Innovation

Mission Innovation (MI) is a global initiative of 22 countries and the European Union – which represent more than 80 percent of global clean energy R&D budgets—plans to seek to double its governmental and/or state-directed clean energy R&D investment over five years, reaching around a combined USD $30 billion per year in 2021.

Mission Innovation was announced on November 30, 2015, as world leaders came together in Paris to undertake ambitious efforts to combat climate change.

The Sustainable Biofuel is one of the Seven Mission Innovation Challenges and India Co-leads this along with other countries Brazil, Canada and China.

Sustainable Biofuel development is a key challenge as well as an opportunity for Governments, researchers, investors and industry to work together.

Sustainable biofuels have seen rapid R&D and performance breakthroughs, however still there are challenges as most exciting biofuels still remain at an early-commercial stage of development.
