Maharashtra teams with Praj to test cashew apple as biofuel feedstock

December 13, 2018 |

In India, two coastal communities in Maharashtra have been short-listed as potential sites for a government program that will trial the use of cashew apple and press cake as feedstock for biofuel production. Praj as well as a local university and other partners are teaming on the project that could help reduce the 2.2 million metric tons of cashew apple waste resulting from the cashew growing and processing industry. Around 45 million liters of ethanol could be produced from the state’s cashew apple waste annually while research is still underway to determine how much bio-CNG could be produced as well.
