Praj is a name to reckon with in the global biofuel technology solutions. Starting with India in the early 80s, Praj’s ethanol technology serves various applications in different parts of the world. In Chemistry terms, ethanol or ethyl alcohol is the 2nd member in the family of molecules containing –OH (hydroxyl) group attached to a carbon atom, with chemical formula C2H5OH.
This molecule has three widely known applications

As fuel ethanol where it is mixed with gasoline as an oxygenate to boost octane number and in higher proportions, to replace gasoline.
As beverage alcohol where it is the principal component of alcoholic beverages like whiskey, rum, vodka.
In industrial applications like paints, varnishes, perfumes, pharmaceuticals, industrial solvent, etc.

Depending on the soil-climate condition, feedstock for ethanol changes from continent to continent and country to country. Sugar based feedstock like sugarcane juice, sugarcane molasses, beet; grains like corn, rice, wheat; tubers like cassava are the conventional feedstock used in different parts of the world and collectively termed as 1st generation feedstock. Ethanol derived from these sources is termed as 1st generation ethanol.
We take pride in the fact that our Bio-energy business unit offers a complete suite of solutions for the global ethanol industry viz. multi-feed multi-product plants, modernization of existing plants, renewable fuels like BioCNG, iso-butanol etc.

2G Ethanol

Second Generation (2G) differs from 1st generation ethanol in terms of feedstock and subsequently, the production process. Second Generation (2G) feed stocks include agri-residues like rice & wheat straw, cane trash, corn cobs & stover, cotton stalk, bagasse, Empty Fruit bunches (EFB), etc.
