Praj Industries (Praj) and Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI) have entered into a partnership with an aim to jointly drive application development of advanced biofuels that will find usage in industry and transportation.

Biofuels developed for the mobility sector will have a positive impact on environment by way of reduced carbon footprint and improved tail pipe emissions.

Biofuels are derived by processing bio-based feedstock such as Agri residue, Molasses, Cane syrup etc. as a renewable transportation fuel in gaseous as well as liquid form, Biofuels provide an energy source that complements fossil fuels such as gasoline, diesel and aviation fuels.

Since, biobased feedstock is a captive source, biofuels facilitate energy self-reliance while helping conserve the environment.

Through this collaboration, the two companies are planning to jointly address technologies to propagate use of biofuels in variety of applications including usage in internal combustion engines (ICE) in the transportation sector.

As a leading player in the global bio economy, Praj brings to the table its expertise of over three decades in developing and deploying biofuel technology solutions through its TEMPO business model1.

On the other hand, as an R&D major, ARAI brings its vast experience in the field of alternative fuels, green and sustainable mobility, to the association.

With complementary strengths in technology and application, the two companies will work together to test and commercialise newer fuels with improved efficiencies.

The transportation sector is the single largest consumer of imported crude oil and natural gas for petroleum products.

Commenting on the development, Dr. Pramod Chaudhari, Executive Chairman, Praj Industries, said that, “we are delighted to partner with ARAI, India’s premier institution, to develop application technologies to create a positive impact on environment and society.”

“The projects we jointly undertake will reinforce of our Bio-Mobility platform that offers technology solutions globally to produce carbon neutral transportation fuel from bio-based feedstock for all modes of mobility. Solutions developed under this program will not only bolster the rural economy but also align with the goals of AtmaNirbhar Bharat Abhiyan,” Dr. Chaudhari added.

“It is important how we accelerate India’s access to affordable and cleaner energy encompassing Bioeconomy. We see great prospective here, and are delighted to join hands with Praj, India’s most accomplished process engineering company in the Bio economy, to unlock enduring worth of sustainable mobility for India. I am confident that this alliance will not only boost Green Economy but also line-up with objectives of being ‘Vocal for Local’ for self-sustenance,” said N V Marathe, Officiating Director of ARAI.
