Enhanced Bio Fuel Technologies (I) Pvt ltd (EBT) is engaged in the field of Bio Fuel Production using nonedible source of feed stock like Jatropha, Biomass and Algae The fine art of Natural Science combinedwith the Innovative Technology has brought a great success in the field of Research and Development. Our sustainable efforts led to breakthrough in the field of Agronomy, Processing Technology, Renewable Energy, Biotechnology, Microbiology and Phycology of Jatropha, Biomass and microalgae cultivation.
The company has undertaken research and development into each of these various fields, for the purpose of applying scientific knowledge to the design, development, processing and distribution of alternative biofuel, the generation/distribution of bio-energy and the processing of bi-products.Enhanced Biofuels Technologies (India) Private Ltd “EBTI” is a main company established in 2006 from its parent company Green World Biotech established in 1992 with main focus on Green energy technology for the production of Energy/biofuel using non-edible feedstocks such as Jatropha, Microalgae and Biomass as its in-house R&D named International Biofuels Research and Development Centre (IBRDC) to support its commercial application. Our strategy is to develop high yielding clones of Biomass woody species using Biotechnology and Microbiology tools to suit high density, high quality biomass with high calorific value and low Ash, Chlorine, Silica content.
EBTIPLC Work Structure
EBTI consist a team of 36 Eminent Scientists and Experts in the field of Agriculture, Forestry, Silviculture, Biotechnology, Microbiology, Genetics Cytogenetics, Plant breeding, Irrigation and Integrated Pest, Disease, Irrigation and Weed management. Our Research expertise on Intercropping of Agri/Horticulture plants made the Biomass industry into a very profitable venture as an additional revenue model. Thiscompany has accumulated and developed the scientific research, data and knowledge necessary to grow Biomass based tree species with a predictable and sustainable yield.
The value of assets and technologies developed has been estimated USD 131 Million for the All the three technologies and $ 45 Million for only Biofuel Technology by Ernst & Young, Bombay. The recent Valuation dated Sep 2014 has been estimated $ 171.31 m for Biomass and Green Energy Technologies by the Valuer of companies, Govt of India.EBT Pvt Ltd is promoted by Dr. Ganapathy Arumugam (GA), he is the Managing Director and Group Science Director of the Company.
He is undoubtedly the world’s leading expert on Jatropha and biomass propagation. GA is a Biotechnologist and Phycologist with 30 years’ experience, including both academic and commercial appointments with the Indian Council of Agricultural research and played a major role to raise £ 75million during his employment in a British Company listed in London Stock Market designated as Group Science Director.Under his control he controlled the operations of 25 countries globally on Plant Science activities of Biofuel feed stock production. His work includes fundamental research into all aspects of Jatropha carcas and Biomass species Land Microalgae as a source of Non Edible feedstock to create National & International Energy independence. His expertise includes the development of new variety, tissue cultures, bio fertilizers and bio control agents.
He has developed high yield, high quality and disease resistant strains of various crops in the field of agriculture, horticulture and energy. His team of experts and scientists established a facility for the production of Greenfuel and hydrogen fuel using micro algae. His Excellency, Former President of India, Dr A.P.J. Kalam, has endorsed the research and development activities of EBTI, declaring them to be of national importance.They have recently been awarded a very prestigious appointment by the Ministry of Science and Technologyby recognition of its in house R & D facilities. EBTI is the only Green fuel Company in India to receive this.
Green World Biotech, the Parent Company of EBTI initiated various Research and Commercial projects on Agricultural, Forestry and Horticultural crops including Animal Husbandry since 1992. Seedlings, rooted cuttings, grafts and tissue culture plants of tree crops and spices were produced and marketed by the company. As a part of their research activities, Jatropha commonly known as Physic Nut was planted as a supporting plant for Vanilla creeper in the year 1994.
Since the significance of Biofuels was not known earlier, the oil produced from Jatropha seeds were used for the production of soap. Later in 2004, importance of Biofuels was realized and they separated Jatropha from Green World Biotech and commenced a Biofuels Research and Development Centre (BRDC), a Facility based on Non edible Feed stocks such as Jatropha and Micro algae to create varieties, Standardization of Agronomical practices etc., to support the commercialization of Biofuel business. After having achieved success, scalable results from the demonstration of Research & Development facility, BRDC is now ready to turn the promise of research into commercial reality under the name of Enhanced Biofuels and Technologies India Private Limited, (EBTI) registered during November 2006.
Dr Ganapathy Arumugam- Managing Director, CEO & Group Science Director, Founder with experience extending over a period of 18 years, including both academic and commercial appointments with the Indian Council of Agricultural Research.As the founding member of the Green World Biotech, G. Arumugam's work includes fundamental research into all aspects of Jatropha curcas Linn and Micro algae as a source of Non Edible feedstock to National & International Energy security.
His expertise includes the development of new varieties,plant tissue culture, bio fertilizers, bio control agents etc. He has developed high yield, high quality and pest/ disease resistant types of various crops in the field of agriculture, horticulture, forestry and energy.His team of experts and scientists established a facility for the production of biodiesel and hydrogen fuel using micro algae. His Excellency, former President of India, Dr A.P.J. Kalam, has recently endorsed the research and development activities of G. Arumugam, declaring them to be of national importance.
Arumugam Ramalakshmi - wife of Ganapathy Arumugam is a Director, Founder, involved in all the R & D Commercial development. She is the Managing Director of the Green World Biotech and one of the foundersof EBTI. She is well exposed in Plant Tissue Culture and Computer Applications.
