India to get world’s first gas-to-bioethanol refinery
Indian Oil Corporation Limited (Indianoil) and Lanzatech, a carbon recycling company, have signed a statement of intent to construct the world’s first refinery of gas-to-bioethanol production facility in India. Lanzatech has developed a gas fermentation process to make fuels and chemicals. instead of sugars and yeast, the company uses a biological catalyst to ferment waste gas emissions. The large volume of waste gas produced at industrial facilities cannot be stored, rather it must be combusted to make power locally and emitted as carbon dioxide (co2).
