Uttar Pradesh government is planning to set up two second-generation ethanol plants in the state. The new plants will be set up with technical assistance from Institute of Nuclear Energy Research (INER), Taiwan. The project will entail an investment of ₹ 8.0 billion at a cost of ₹ 4.0 billion for each bio ethanol plant. The state government will offer the company with facilities including stamp duty waiver, capital subsidy as well as SGST rebate. The biofuel facility is expected to utilize about 200 tonnes of agro-waste per day for the production of 50,000 litres of second-generation ethanol.
