Commenting on the Company’s performance for Q2 & H1 FY2021, Mr. Shishir Joshipura, CEO & MD, Praj Industries said, “We are pleased to see a continued return to “normalcy” across the business landscape from the challenging circumstances created by Pandemic. Operations across all project sites, factories and R&D facilities have continued to build positively and are back to near normal levels at the quarter-end even as precautions and guidelines for combating the pandemic remain strongly in place. The business landscape is witnessing improved traction across several sectors specially Bio Energy and Pharma segments. There are structural shifts underway in these markets and we are optimistic that the pace of progress will continue to build positively as we move forward. Recently announced upward revision in ethanol prices, push for renewable gas, strong focus on effluent discharge is expected to build momentum in near future. Our comprehensive basket of solutions and the ability to customise offerings to suit a variety of objectives is resonating strongly with domestic and global customers alike. We are cautiously excited on building a healthy and sustainable growth ahead.”
