Tata Projects, one of India's fastest growing infrastructure companies, has bagged Bharat Petroleum Corporation’s (BPCL) 2G Bio Ethanol Project at Bargarh, Odisha recently. The proposed production capacity of this plant is 100 KL per day of second generation ethanol. This project is significant since the Central government is encouraging production of cellulosic ethanol from agricultural residues. It will assist in addressing growing environmental concerns and supporting the Ethanol Blended Petrol (EBP) programme. In addition to reducing environmental pollution due to burning of agricultural waste, the project will enhance the nation's energy security.

Once complete, this BPCL 2G bio-ethanol project will produce fuel grade ethanol meeting specifications as per IS 15464:2004, using domestic agro based lingo-cellulosic feedstock. Rice straw shall be the design feedstock while maize stalk will be the check case.

Highlighting about the project, Vinayak Deshpande, Managing Director - TATA Projects, said, "As a leading engineering and technology company, we have a specialised division that executes construction of environmentally beneficial and challenging projects. Hence, we seek to undertake projects that improve the lives of communities and support national developmental objectives at the same time. TATA Projects has delivered projects on-time using world-class management techniques with standards of safety and ecological responsibility."
