Mr. Amol Sheth’s presentation at AIDA seminar on Praj 2nd Gen Ethanol Technology – Feb 2016
Greenhouse Gas emissions have been a significant contributor to the pollution scenario of the world in recent times. This invites an urgent need to adopt an environmentally friendly approach to meet the fuel demands brought by rapid urbanization. The biomass to biofuel technology project by Praj called ‘Enfinity’ is aimed at reducing carbon footprints and popularising sustainable technology into the mainstream. It involves 2nd generation bioethanol plant using Agri-based feedstocks.
This technology can help produce 3525 crore liters of bioethanol per annum from nearly 141MMT of biomass, which can not only meet nations fuel ethanol requirement, but also export to neighboring countries. The key challenges for the ‘Enfinity’ project includes Feedstock sourcing, Economic viability and Risk Management. Praj has already signed 4 MoUs with 4 prospects in North India and has also attracted NRI investors.
