Praj getting closer to building two 2nd gen biofuel plants in Europe

March 11, 2018 |

In India, Praj Industries is a step closer to setting up two second generation ethanol plants in two European Union countries that were not disclosed yet. The announcement that Praj is in the advanced stages of discussions to build those plants came at the EU-India Conference on Advanced Biofuels on Friday. A delegation from Europe consisting of senior executives from the bio industry were in attendance. Delegates visited Praj’s second generation demonstration biorefinery to see the technology and plant in person.

Dr. Kyriakos Maniatis, Principal Administrator – Directorate General for Energy, European Commission told the Economic Times, “I visited the commercial demo plant of Praj Industries in Maskoba and I was very impressed. Compared to other similar Second Generation plants across Europe and USA, the plant in India is better than those plants, simply because Praj plant is up and running and it produces Ethanol whereas the plants in USA have been trying for over a year to succeed.”
