Praj Signs Agreement With Gevo to Commercialise Isobutanol Tech
Praj Industries has signed a Construction License Agreement (CLA) with Gevo Inc, USA, to commercialize the technology for the production of Isobutanol using sugary-based feedstocks, such as juice, syrup, and molasses. Pursuant to the CLA, Praj will provide Engineering Procurement and Construction (EPC) services to 3rd parties using a process design package developed by Praj.
Praj has carved a unique position in the world of ethanol technology by virtue of its expertise which cuts across a variety of sugar to starch-based feedstock, collectively called as 1st generation feedstock. Praj is one of the few companies in the world to successfully develop and demonstrate second generation ethanol production using agri-residue.
