January 27, 2020. By News Bureau
TATA Projects Limited has announced that it has received multiple mega orders in the Oil & Gas refinery sector with combined value totalling more than Rs. 6,000 crores from HPCL Rajasthan Refinery Ltd (HRRL) and Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL).
BPCL’s order is for its 2G Bio Ethanol Project at Bargarh, Odisha with a proposed production capacity of this plant at 100 KL per day of second-generation Ethanol. This project is significant since the Government of India is encouraging the production of cellulosic ethanol from agricultural residues to provide additional sources of remuneration to farmers. It will assist in addressing growing environmental concerns and supporting the Ethanol Blended Petrol (EBP) program. In addition to reducing environmental pollution due to the burning of agricultural waste – the project will enhance the nation’s energy security.
Once complete, this BPCL 2G Bio Ethanol Project will produce fuel-grade ethanol meeting specifications as per IS 15464:2004, using domestic agro-based lingo-cellulosic feedstock. Rice straw shall be the design feedstock while Maize stalk will be the check case.
Vinayak Deshpande, Managing Director - TATA Projects Ltd, said, “As a leading construction & technology company, we have a specialised division that executes construction of environmentally beneficial and challenging projects. Hence, we seek to undertake projects that improve the lives of communities and support national developmental objectives at the same time.
