In India, the Punjab government has signed an MOU with the central government to develop a $7.35 million second-generation ethanol plant that will use crop waste as feedstock. With more than 5 million metric tons of straw available per year in the state, the project is expected to be the first of 10 such ethanol plants. As the government aims for 22% ethanol blending, it is working with partners to develop cellulosic ethanol production facilities using a wide range of crop wastes as feedstock.
