Praj Industries further informed that a Be8 team recently visited Vivergo Fuels, one of the biggest wheat-to-ethanol plants in the UK, designed and engineered by Praj. “Later, we hosted the Project Kick-off meeting with the Be8 team in India. During this visit, the team experienced our innovation-driven state-of-the-art R&D Facility at Praj Matrix and also witnessed the cutting edge manufacturing capabilities at our Sanaswadi Facility,” said Praj.

India is presently engaged in discussions with Brazil regarding a technological collaboration aimed at broadening ethanol utilization, aligning with efforts to adopt alternative fuels and mitigate carbon emissions. Union Minister V K Singh emphasizes that Brazil’s extensive experience in utilizing ethanol in vehicles presents ample learning opportunities for other nations, underscoring the potential for a fruitful partnership.

Presently, Brazil stands as the foremost producer and consumer of ethanol derived from sugarcane, holding the title of the world’s leading exporter of this biofuel. Beyond mitigating reliance on petroleum imports, ethanol offers Brazil manifold advantages including job creation, income generation, bolstered energy security, a greener energy portfolio, and diminished greenhouse gas emissions.
