According to the Government’s policy, it is anticipated that mixing of 10% ethanol in petrol has a high potential, and thus has a potential for new ethanol projects to come up in India. The country’s yearly growth in petrol consumption is approximately 30 billion liters with annual growth of about 10%. Considering India’s existing petrol consumption of around 25 billion liters per annum, its present requirement of ethanol at the rate of 10 % mixing is around 2.5 billion liters per annum.
To achieve ultimate aim of mixing 22% ethanol in the petrol, it is not possible to meet demand with available feed stock. In order to meet the above requirement, alternative source such as biomass is an option to produce cellulosic alcohol in the near future. One such consulting firm that provides services to develop processes and plants is Satyan Consulting Engineers.
