In India, ‘Enfinity’, Praj’s proprietary and award-winning technology, will be deployed to produce ethanol and other co-products using sugarcane bagasse in what would be USA’s first bagasse-based bio-refinery. The bio-refinery is being jointly promoted by Florida based Omega Energy USA, a developer of renewable energy projects, while Louisiana based Lasuca Sugar, a producer of cane sugar, will supply bagasse feedstock. The promoters have issued a formal letter confirming their interest to engage Praj for developing the design and project program fora cellulosic ethanol bio-refinery in the USA. The proposed project in the cane-sugar belt of the country will have the capacity to produce 10-15 million gallons per year (MGPY) of cellulosic ethanol.
