1 ECONOMIC PRODUCTION OF BIO-ETHANOL FROM VARIOUS INDIGENOUS SOURCES IN INDIA-A REVIEW A.K.Ray*, S.P.Yadav, and Pooja Sharma Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee, Saharanpur, India ABSTRACT Ethanol is usually produced in India by fermentation of molasses (generally 5% on cane) with an yield, liter per tons of molasses with yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae or by strains, Zymomonas mobilis. Uses of cane juice, jaggerry, mohua flower are also used in some installations. An alternative feedstock for ethanol production is ligno-cellulosic biomass;bagasse,rice straw, cotton straw, groundnut shells, wood and forest residues, waste paper products, paper and pulp mill wastes using thermophilic anaerobic bacteria, Clostridium thermocellum. Cellulose enzyme produced by aerobic mesophilic fungus, Trichoderma reesei, also releases glucose from plant biomass and converts to ethanol by simultaneous saccharification and fermentation. Acid hydrolysate of hemicelluloses extracted from bagasse and other agriculture wastes by fermentation with the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae has also been a potential feedstock. Starch based natural produce like wheat, rice, millets, potatoes, corn, tapioca can also be a potential and economic source of ethanol production. In this paper potential for profitable production of alcohol by various indigenous sources are reviewed. Economics of alcohol manufacture in relation to various constraints is discussed. INTRODUCTION Presently the entire ethanol production in India is based on molasses as feedstock.the government will soon move for mandatory blending of petrol with ethanol (EBP) pegging the target at 5%, in what could be a first step towards reducing the escalating fuel import bill. The chemical ministry (1) has argued that 5% petrol-ethanol blending will require 105 crore litres of ethanol annually, even though oil companies could procure only 36 crore litres last year. The expert panel for government of India also suggested peg ethanol costs Rs. 27 per litre with a floor price of Rs. 23 and a ceiling price of Rs. 31.During the years , and , there had been a surplus of ethanol in the country (2) even after exporting 3 to 4 % of the domestic production during each of these 3 years. Against an installed capacity of almost 27,000 lakh litres per annum, the distillery industry had been producing alcohol to the extent of 11,000 lakh litres(assuming 220 litres of ethanol per tonne of molasses) per annum having a capacity utilization of only 41 %. Therefore enough distillation capacity is available in the country to process additional molasses which is likely to be produced till the year 2002 provided there was market for that extra quantity of ethanol. Ethanol production from molasses, consumption and economics In India there are 300 distilleries producing alcohol using molasses as raw material, out of which 115 distilleries are attached to sugar factories. The total installed capacities of all the distilleries is 2964million litres in the year 2008 with 67.5% capacity utilization [ 2 ].The growth of alcohol production in India over the years is shown in fig. 1 which is linear

2 Production, Mt Year Figure 1 : Production of alcohol from molasses in India (2) India is surplus in alcohol as on today as it produces more than 28 million tons of cane sugar and million litres of alcohol per annum through its nearly 300 distilleries. The annual total licensed capacity is million litres out of which million litres are produced from the distilleries attached with sugar factories. On the other hand total annual installed capacity for the same are and million litres respectively. India is producing indigenously around 33 million tons of petrol whereas our annual requirement is around 120 million tons. This may go up to 365 million tons in the year Presently India imports 75% fuel and will rise to 90% by The present scenario of sugar, fossil fuel stock, and power shortage, it is imperative to go for non-conventional bio liquid fuel and power production to cope up with the present and future demand. As a World s largest producer of cane molasses, India should take initiative to use biofuels, to overcome the mounting pollution problem in the metros. With a normal av. production rate of 1,900 million litres a year, India is the World s fourth largest producer of ethanol after Brazil, The United States and China. Production and Consumption pattern of ethanol in some countries are shown in the following tables 1 and 2. Table 1. Production and consumption of Ethanol worldwide Countries Production of Ethanol,10-3 million litres Brazil USA Europe India

3 It is evident that the ethanol production in 2007 was around 49.2 billion litres and in 2017, it will increase up to 105 billion litres. It is also clear that US is the major contributor, Brazil followed the next and unlike others, the amount is expected to be double in US and India. It is expected that in 2017 nearly 4.0 billion litres of alcohol will be produced in India. In India 94-96% ethanol is produced from sigar cane based molasses and only 3-4% from grains. Production wise India s share is only 4%. The consumption pattern is quite different in India compared to global situation. This is shown in the following table: The following table shows the projected demand for petrol and diesel and the amount of ethanol and biodiesel required for 5, 10, and 20 per cent blending. Table 2. Projected demand for petrol,diesel and ethanol requirements in India Ethanol Biodiesel Year Petrol 5 10 per 20 per cent Diesel per per cent (Mt) cent (Mt) cent Source: Planning Commission, Government of India. Report of the Committee on Development of BioFuel, 16 April 2003 & The above demands are based on estimated growth rates of 7.3 and 5.6 per cent for petrol and diesel, respectively, in the 10 th plan ( to ), 5.0 and 5.0 per cent in the 11 th plan ( to ) and 5.0 and 4.5 per cent in the 12 th plan ( to ). PRODUCTION OF ALCOHOL FROM VARIOUS INDIGENOUS SOURCES: In India, alcohol is usually produced from molasses, though some distilleries also use cane juice, deteriorated cane juice, gur,. Alcohol may however be produced from any sugary(cane or beet molasses or sugar cane juice, sorghum or starchy agricultural crops,vegetable crops, crop residues, grain,, starch, sago waste, corn, jowar, barley, wheat, rice, millets, tapioca cassava, potatoes, soybeans etc. or even from cellulose- hemicellulosic materials.large amount of lignocellulosic wastes are generated through forestry and agricultural practices, sugar industry, pulp and paper industries, timber industries and many agro-industries,bagasse, rice straw, wheat straw, cotton straw, corn stover,groundnut shells, wood, grasses, sarkanda, paper pulp and many others. The average yield from some of the sources are shown in Table 3 below.the biomass requires pretreatment, saccharification of cellulose and hemicelluloses complexes and simultaneous fermentation of reducing sugars( hexose and pentose sugars). Acid hydrolysisof lignocellulosic biomass ion addition to sugars,aliphatic acids ( acetic, formic, and levulinic acids), furan derivatives, furfural and 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) and phenolic compounds are formed. These compounds are known to affect ethanol fermentation efficiency Table 3 Yield of ethanol from various substrates, kg of ethanol/tonne of substrate

Attempt has been made( 3.) to convert Lantana Camara and Pine needle into maximum fermentable sugars by acid hydrolysis. The method utilizes biomass, macerated with 72 %H 2 SO 4 at ambient temperature in bath ratio 1: 1.25 for 18 hrs, then diluted to 5% acid concentration, digesting it at 120oC for different time periods(20 min. to 90 min.), detoxified following standard procedures and finally fermented with yeast culture of Sachharomyces cerevisiae. The results obtained is shown in the following Table 4.

5 ethanol (9.5 g/l) within 40 h and thereafter some oligosachharides also converted to ethanol bringing the final ethanol concentration 11.5 g/l in the broth. Bioethanol production from mixed wastes using Fungi Archana Mishra et al.( 5) employed enzymatic hydrolysis of biomass, namely rice straw and vegetable wastes by Trichoderma viride followed by fermentation with Sachharomyces cerevisiae. Detailed kinetic studies have been conducted at different temperatures ( 21± 2 o C,27± 2 o C, 33± 2 o C. during 6 days to 12 days of incubation for formation of TRS and total sugar as well as ethanol production. The yield of TRS was found to be mg/g of biomass and ethanol of the order of mg/ml of substrate from 3:1 ratio of rice straw and vegetable waste after 9 days of incubation at 27 o C and alcohol after 4 days of fermentation at 27 o C. Results of fermentation at different temperature are shown in figure Yield (mg/ml) time(days) yield at 21±2 0 C yield at 27±2 0 C yield at 33±2 0 C Figure 2: Ethanol yield at various conditions Bioethanol from agri-residues and groundnut shells Padmaja et.al.(6) utilized various agri-residues such as bagasse, rice straw, cotton straw, groundnut shells using thermophilic anaerobic bacteria,clostridium thermocellum and found g ethanol per g of substrate degraded( compared to the yield of ethanol on pure crystalline cellulose was 0.25 g/g of substrate degraded).the reaction has been carried out at 60 o C and ph of 7.5 under continuous sparging of nitrogen to make the system oxygen free. Mild alkali treatment given to the substrate, enhanced their utilization and ethanol yields. The extent of conversion in the treated and untreated wastes ranged between % and % respectively. Improved production of ethanol using Zymomonas mobilis from molasses

6 Using modified strains of zymomonas mobilis for hydrolysed and unhydrolysed molasses, high ethanol production has been obtained over conventional yeast fermentation at an optimum temperature of 30 o C and ph 6(7,8). Ethanol concentration of 47 g/l with 92 % fermentation efficiency was obtained from 20% molasses medium.cane molasses contains sufficient nutrients for growth of Zymomonas mobilis and no supplements were required for ethanol production.effects of temperature, initial sugar concentration and ph on ethanol production and fermentation efficiency were studied. Production of alcohol from Sago wastes Subashini et al.(9) conducted a series of experiments on sago waste( both solid as well as liquid phase) using saccharomyces cerevisiae strain Vits-MI isolated from molasses and found that this strain is betterthan the standard strain MTCC The process consists of simulataneous saccharification with acids ( 0.3 N hydrochloric as well as 0.3 N sulphuric acid) followed by fermentation.effect of temperature(10 o C-40 o C), concentration of sugars( 10%48%,glucose),pH( ),time (60 min-120 min) were studied for saccharification step followed by fermentation with varying time ( 5 day-20 day) with liquid phase as well as solid phase. Maximum yield of 15.8 % alcohol were obtained in 15 th day in liquid phase. Production of alcohol from muhua flowers Behera et al.(10) attempted from mahua flowers by submerged fermentation (Smf) using immobilized cells of Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Zymomonas mobilis in calcium alginate beads. Maximum ethanol concentration were and gkg -1 flowers using immobilized cells of S. cerevisiae in calcium alginate beads which were found more effective (14. 83% more yield) for ethanol production than immobilized cells of Z. mobilis.the ethanol yields were found of the order g/g and g/g for S. cerevisiae and z. mobilis respectively. Production of alcohol from corn and tapioca Lehri and Agarwal (11) utilized both corn and tapioca (which are rich sources of carbohydrates, viz., 77.3 and 82.1 % respectively) employing a fungal glucoamylase at 60 o C for 30 h for hydrolysis and found 85 % hydrolysis of both the raw materials.the concentrated hydrolysates containing 13-15% TRS content when subjected to fermentation with distiller yeast, S.cerevisiae NSI-113, at 30 o C for 72 h, resulted alcohol productivity g/g) with fermentation efficiency of the order of 98%. The alcohol content in wash varied from 8 to 9.1 % (v/v) and the residual sugar content inwash from 0.18 to 0.25 % (w/w). The alcohol yields from corn and tapioca were 362 and 370 litres at 24 h, and 411 and 437 litres per ton, at 72 h, respectively; as compared to about 225 liters per ton of molasses normally obtained in India distilleries operating on conventional batch fermentation process. In the study it is found that when period of fermentation has been varied from 24 h to 72 h the alcohol productivity g/g FS increases at first significantly, then almost remaining constant after 30h. Results regarding yield of reducing sugar as well as productivity of alcohol from both corn and tapioca are shown in figures 3 to 5.

9 Bioethanol from Jatropha oilseed cakes Mishra et al. (13) dealt with the bioconversion of cellulose from press cakes of Jatropha oilseeds into ethanol by using the method of dilute acid pretreatment ( sulphuric acid), hydrolysis and fermentation by Saccharomyces cerevisiae. About 80% ethanol was recovered as a result of the process. Jatropha incentives in India was a part of India's goal to achieve energy independence by the year Jatropha oil is produced from the seeds of the Jatropha curcas, a plant that can grow in wastelands across India, and the oil is considered to be an excellent source of biodiesel. India is keen on reducing its dependence on coal and petroleum to meet its increasing energy demand and encouraging Jatropha cultivation is a crucial component of its energy policy.large plots of waste land have been selected for Jatropha cultivation and will provide much needed employment to the rural poor of India. Businesses are also seeing the planting of Jatropha as a good business opportunity. The Government of India has identified 400,000 square kilometres (98 million acres) of land where Jatropha can be grown, hoping it will replace 20% of India's diesel consumption by 2011 Alcohol from sweet Sorghum( 2 ) The National Institute of agriculture research, Hyderabad has advocated the extraction of ethanol from sweet sorghum. About 800 acres is currently cultivated with sweet sorghum in Andra Pradesh, Maharastra, and Karnataka. The extraction of ethanol from sweet sorghum is cheaper than extraction of alcohol from sugar cane, since the cost of sugar cane is higher than sweet sorghum. The grain from sweet sorghum can be used for ethanol extraction or it can be used as a by-product. Ethanol from Sugar beet(2) The sugar present in sugar beet is normally between 14-16%. One can extract alcohol directly from sugar beet about 75 to 90 litres / tonnes of sugar beet as against te 60 litres alcohol per tonne of sugar cane. The yield per acre is around 40 MT and the average age of the crop is only 4 moontemplating cultivation of sugarbeet.nths as against the 11 months of sugar cane. The water consumption is less by 75 % on cane. That is the reason the Northen states and Tamil nadu are contemplating the production of bioethanol from Jatropha seeds. CONCLUSION Production of Ethanol, its demand, and supply projection from Indian perspective have been reviewed. Production of bioethanol from various sources has been discussed. Some research efforts in Indian research institutions as well as from industry are highlighted. REFERENCES 1.
