Praj and ESIIC will develop infrastructure, help formulate policy framework, and create awareness etc. to mainstream Bioeconomy. Sugarcane bagasse and rice straw are envisaged to be feedstock for conceiving Egypt’s first 2 nd Generation ethanol project.

This sustainable biochemical will reduce dependency on the chemicals derived from fossil route. Bioethanol supplied as chemical intermediate is based on circular bioeconomy principle that will reduce GHG emissions by recycling of carbon.
