Indian Oil awards Bio-Ethanol plant project to Nuberg EPC

Leading Indian Global EPC and turnkey project management company, Nuberg EPC has been awarded the prestigious 10 TPD 2nd Generation Bio-Ethanol from Biomass plant project on an LSTK basis in Panipat. The project, owned by Indian Oil Corporation Limited, will produce Ethanol for fuel blending. Nuberg EPC will be the single-point solution company responsible from concept to commissioning of the project. The project is scheduled for an ambitious schedule of 11 months with Mechanical Completion by June 2022.

The 10 TPD Bio-Ethanol project is based on technology developed by IOCL's R&D team and thus, is a completely made in India undertaking for Bio-Ethanol. The government of India's blended Ethanol fuel roadmap envisages raising pan-India ethanol production capacity from the current 700 to 1500 crore liters. This will enable the phased rollout of E10 fuel by April 2022 and the phased rollout of E20 from April 2023 for complete availability by April 2025. Currently, India is at around 8.33% ethanol blend. The advantages of using Ethanol blended fuel include savings in foreign exchange along with reduced environmental pollution. Biomass based ethanol also helps increase the proportion of Green Energy in the conventional fossil fuel transportation industry and sets the pace for upcoming Green Hydrogen economy.
