Road Ahead

"In view of Government of India policy to mix 10% ethanol in petrol, we anticipate the high potential for new ethanol projects to come up in India. Considering our existing petrol consumption of around 25 billion liters per annum, our present requirement of ethanol at the rate of 10 % mixing shall mount up around 2.5 billion liters per annum. India's yearly growth in petrol consumption is approximately 30 billion liters with annual growth of about 10%. To achieve the ultimate aim of mixing 22% in the petrol, it is not possible to meet the demand for the available feedstock.

In order to meet the above requirement, alternative source such as biomass is an option to produce cellulosic alcohol in the near future.

SATYAN CONSULTING ENGINEERS is closely working with its associates and looking forward to a role as a process validation for such projects being set up in India & to be part of the team for meeting government of India's objective."
