Praj Industries has signed a Construction License Agreement (CLA) with Gevo, Inc, USA dated April 4, 2019, to commercialize technology for the production of Isobutanol using sugary-based feedstocks, such as juice, syrup and molasses.
According to the CLA, the company will provide Engineering Procurement and Construction (EPC) services to 3rd 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, the company also signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Gevo Inc. to commercialize Gevo's renewable hydrocarbons products. This includes Gevo's renewable alcohol-to-jet fuel (ATJ) and renewable isooctane, derived from Gevo's renewable Isobutanol.
