India to get world’s first gas-to-bioethanol re­fin­ery

Governance Now - - PSU WATCH -

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).
