Valmet to deliver biomass pretreatment system
08 October 2019
Valmet has been selected to deliver a biomass pre-treatment system to PRAJ Industries for its second-generation biorefinery project currently being developed in India. The order was received in the third quarter 2019 and delivery is planned for 2020.
PRAJ is progressing on the execution of the first batch of four second-generation integrated biorefinery projects in India, contracted by major oil marketing companies.
The integrated bio-refinery was a first for India and is built on the company’s proprietary platform technology ‘enfinity’. The second-generation demo plant can produce one MLPA of superior ethanol by processing a variety of agri-residue like rice and wheat straw, cotton stalk, cane trash, corn cobs, and stover, etc. With continual research and development, further pipelines of other renewable fuels and chemicals are underway to be produced from this technology platform.
