India’s leading EPC and turnkey project management company Nuberg EPC received 10 tpd 2sd Turnkey Lump Sum Turnkey (LSTK) bioethanol production plant project in Panipat, India. The project, owned by Indian Oil Corp. Ltd, will produce ethanol for the fuel mixture. Nuberg EPC will be the single point solutions company responsible from design to commissioning of the project. The project is planned on an ambitious 11-month timeframe with mechanical completion by June 2022.

The project is based on technology developed by the IOCL R&D team and is therefore a company entirely designed in India for bioethanol. The Indian government’s roadmap on ethanol-based fuels envisions increasing the pan-Indian ethanol production capacity from 700 to 1,500 crore liters currently. This will enable the gradual deployment of E10 fuel by April 2022 and the gradual deployment of E20 from April 2023 for full availability by April 2025. Currently India uses an ethanol blend of about 8.33%. The benefits of using ethanol blended fuel include currency savings as well as reduced environmental pollution. Biomass-based ethanol also helps to increase the proportion of green energy in the conventional fossil fuel transportation industry and sets the tone for the future green hydrogen economy.

This project marks another milestone for Nuberg EPC in the pandemic year 2021. The company has previously bagged prestigious projects during this period, including a soda plant project for LineerKostik Soda Sanayi AnominSirketi in Turkey ; sulfuric acid project for SpreaMisr in Egypt; sulfuric acid plant project for the Awash Melkassa chemical plant in Ethiopia; sulfuric acid plant project for the international chemical industry company in Egypt; one of India’s first commercial scale fuel cell grade hydrogen plants at Vadodara; and hydrogen peroxide plant for Uzbekistan Hydrogen JU LLC in Uzbekistan.
