IOC to set up second gen ethanol plant

Indian Oil Corporation is planning to set up a second generation ethanol plant over an area of 50 acres at Panipat in Haryana.

After a meeting with Chief Minister Manohar Lal in Chandigarh, B V Rama Gopal, Executive Director (In-charge), Panipat Refinery and Petrochemical Complex, said, “It would be the first such plant of IOCL in the state.”

He requested the CM to provide the land of Haryana State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation (HSIIDC) in Panipat for setting up of this plant.

An official release said the Chief Minister asked him to send a proposal to the state government in this regard and assured that his request would be considered favourably.

Ram Gopal, who informed that it is a new technology under which the agriculture residue would be converted into ethanol, said, “Twenty per cent of the ethanol produced through this technique could directly be mixed in petrol.”
