IndianOil moves forward with 2G ethanol plant after securing land

December 28, 2017 |

In India, the Economic Times reports that IndianOil has secured the land required for its 100,000 liter per day second-generation ethanol plant in Panipat from the Haryana Enterprise Promotion Board where it will begin to set up rice straw collection infrastructure making it quick and easy for farmers to supply the plant’s required feedstock. The company will secure all of the straw produced in the four districts surrounding the new facility at what is says will be a reasonable price to help augment farmer income. The aim is to ensure farmers aren’t left to burn the straw on their own, helping to significantly reduce air pollution during the harvest period as well.
