State-owned Indian Oil Corporation will set up a Rs 600-crore plant for the production of second generation ethanol in Haryana.
At the empowered executive committee meeting held in Chandigarh, the Haryana Government has accepted the investment proposal.
According to a ET report, the plant will use plant waste, stubble, husk and straw to produce 100 kilo litres of ethanol every day.
The State government has agreed to provide land either on nominal lease or free of cost. Billed to be the largest such plant in the country, it is expected to generate hundreds of jobs.
