Praj Industries Ltd has signed a Construction License Agreement (CLA) with Gevo, Inc, USA to commercialise technology for the production of lsobutanol using sugary-based feedstocks, such as juice, syrup and molasses.
As per the CLA, Praj will provide Engineering Procurement and Construction (EPC) services to third parties using a process design package developed by Praj.
This package uses Gevo’s proprietary lsobutanol biocatalyst on sugary-based feedstock. lsobutanol derived from said proprietary process is high energy renewable intermediate product that finds application in Aviation and Racing cars.
To that effect, Praj also signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Gevo Inc. to commercialize Gevo’s renewable hydrocarbons products. This includes Gevo’s renewable alcohol-to-jet fuel (‘ATJ’) and renewable isooctane, derived from Gevo’s renewable lsobutanol.
