By Mary Page Bailey |

Valmet Oyj (Espoo, Finland; www.valmet.com)  will deliver biomass pretreatment system to Praj Industries Ltd. (Pune, India; www.praj.net) for their second-generation biorefinery project which is under execution in India. The delivery is planned for 2020. The order was included in Valmet’s orders received of the third quarter 2019. The value of the order will not be disclosed.


Praj is progressing on the execution of the first batch of four second-generation integrated bio refinery projects in India, contracted by major oil marketing companies.


“We are very proud to play an important role in the transition away from fossil fuel, that is happening also in India. For many years, Valmet has focused on developing technologies for the emerging biotechnologies. We look forward to continue the excellent collaboration with PRAJ and we believe the second-generation ethanol demand will increase in Asia and worldwide,” says Tomas Jonsson, Sales Manager, Biomass Conversion Technology Unit, Pulp and Energy, Valmet.
