Chempolis and ACRID partner for ethanol extraction technology

December 17, 2015

Chempolis,  the Finland-based biorefining technology firm has partnered  with Avantha Group’s research wing ACRID to offer technology to extract ethanol from agri residues.
According to a joint statement, the partnership will help deliver biorefining technology to convert various agri residues such as bagasse, cane trash, rice and wheat straw, corn stems, grasses, bambo and clean sugar to be further converted to cellulosic ethanol and other biobased chemicals.
Rajeev Vederah , Chairman, ACRID  said  that at present  only a small percentage of ethanol blending ratio is reached due to lack of proper technologies and this  partnership can help India achieve 10 per cent ethanol blending levels in petrol and 20 per cent blending ratio by 2017.
Pasi Rousu, President (Asia Pacific and Americas), Chempolis Ltd, said, “India is today facing many challenges like air pollution, tremendous import of petroleum and underdeveloped countrysides. All these challenges can be turned into highly scalable sustainable (economic, environment and social) businesses.”
