Alpha Laval busy with ethanol in India

By | April 01, 2002
Alpha Laval (India) Limited hopes to benefit significantly from India's decision to encourage 5 percent ethanol blended gas nationwide.

"We expect to sign orders with 3 or 4 sugar companies in the next couple of weeks for supplying and setting up anhydrous alcohol plants," an Indian Alpha Laval spokesperson said recently.

Alpha laval has reportedly partnered up with U.S.-based Katzen International, Inc. for sourcing molecular sieve technology to manufacture ethanol. According to officials closely involved, many sugar companies have shown interest in setting up facilities to produce ethanol.

As reported by Ethanol Producer Magazine, Prune-based Praj Industries has partnered with Delta-T in a similar capacity.
