Praj Industries has signed a cooperation agreement with Brazil-based Dedini to offer ethanol production technologies to the Brazilian market.

Dedini will be able to market Praj’s technology solutions to set up ethanol production facilities using grain-based feedstock, as well as modernise and upgrade existing ethanol plants in the South American country.

Praj will be responsible for technology licence engineering and supply of critical equipment, with Dedini providing manufacturing equipment, site supervision, customer assistance and logistics.

“We look forward to a mutually rewarding association with Dedini,” said Shishir Joshipura, CEO and managing director at Praj. “Praj is confident that its pioneering technology backed by world-class research and development will support the Brazilian Government’s mandate for ethanol blending and reduce GHG emissions.”

“We are proud of this association with Praj Industries as it represents the agreement of two globally recognised companies, bringing to the market proven technologies, competitiveness and customisation for our clients,” added Giuliano Dedini Ometto Duarte, director president at Dedini.

According to Praj, the collaboration will ensure a consistent, customised approach and the latest technologies, while responding to market requirements in Brazil. Customers will benefit from competitive pricing, single window responsibility and locally available after-sales services.
