Praj Industries to collaborate with GEVO USA
Praj Industries has signed a Construction License
Agreement (CLA) with Gevo Inc,
USA dated April 4, 2019, to commercialise technology for the production of isobutanol using sugary-based feedstocks, such as juice, syrup and molasses. Pursuant to 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 isobutanol biocatalyst on sugary-based feedstock. Isobutanol 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
an MoU with Gevo Inc. to commercialise Gevo’s renewable hydrocarbons products. This includes Gevo’s renewable alcohol-to-jet fuel (“ATJ”) and renewable isooctane, derived from Gevo’s renewable isobutanol.
