Construction of Bharat Petroleum’s 2G ethanol plant to begin by August

In India, construction of Bharat Petroleum Corporation’s $148 million cellulosic ethanol plant in Bargarh is set to begin in July or August following delays due to the Odisha authorities failing to grant the land required for the facility. The plant is expected to use straw and other biomass as feedstock. It is one of several cellulosic plants planned by oil marketing companies to help produce enough ethanol to satisfy the future 22% ethanol blending mandate.
