Khosla funded LanzaTech to help IOC, JSPL set up bio jet fuel plant

Panchabuta was the first to report in June last year that IndianOil and Jindal Steel and Power Limited (JSPL) are exploring how to leverage their resources to implement a commercial scale ethanol plant using LanzaTech’s technology to process waste gases from a Jindal steel mill. The fuel ethanol produced by the plant would be blended into IndianOil’s gasoline pool.

Earlier in January last year, Khosla Ventures funded New Zealand based clean-energy company LanzaTech signs deal with Indian Oil Corporation for ethanol production in India.


According to reports, LanzaTech is in talks with its partners here – IndianOil and Jindal Steel & Power – to help them set up plant to produce commercial bio jet fuel from ethanol, a top company official has said. As a first step, LanzaTech will open an office in the country in the first half of 2012 as part of its plan to expand its operations here, LanzaTech vice-president for business development for Asia Pacific Prabhakar Nair said.
