Chhattisgarh’s first ethanol plant will be constructed near Bhoramdev Cooperative Sugar Factory in Kabirdham district. The district administration has identified 35 acres of vacant land adjacent to the factory for setting up the plant.
Implementation of the project has been accelerated after Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel said he would include the agriculture-based ethanol plant as one of the priority schemes of his government. The plant will have a capacity of 80 kilo litres per day (KLPD).
The Chhattisgarh government has decided to involve private players for financial and technical participation in the project to strengthen the state’s economy. The state’s first ethanol plant will be set up under the public-private-partnership (PPP) model.
