"We are delighted to close the second round of funding and look forward to expand our business with fresh funds that we have raised.

BiofuelCircle has created a digital ecosystem to cater to the diversity of participants, where businesses from industrial and rural sectors can transact fairly, claimed by the company in a statement.

"The idea of optimizing waste that ends up in ashes or landfills causing pollution and using it to fulfill the energy need is crucial. We are glad to be a part of BiofuelCircle's journey and are positive that their solutions will evolve the sector at large. Their vision of ease of doing business, especially for rural participants by increasing the market reach and providing the option of price discovery is something we look forward to," said Vaibhav Domkundwar, CEO and founder, Better Capital.
