BPCL gets green nod for Rs 747 cr ethanol project in Odisha

State-run Bharat Petroleum Corp Ltd (BPCL) has been given green nod for setting up a second generation ethanol plant in Odisha that would entail an investment of Rs 747.46 crore, according to a senior government official. The ethanol bio-refinery with a capacity of 100 kilo litre per day (KLPD) will be set up at Baulsingha village in Bargarh disrict in an area of 58.44 acres.

The project is in line with the government’s national bio-fuel policy, which mandates 5 per cent blending of ethanol with petrol.

“Last month, the Environment Assessment Committee (EAC) vetted the BPCL’s proposal and gave recommendation that the environment clearance (EC) be given to the ethanol project. Accordingly, the environment ministry has issued the EC,” the official said. Read More
