EMSI Limited is interested and is planning to manufacture ethanol as Biofuel or ethanol for industrial applications using cassava tuber fresh or dry cassava chips.
OPPORTUNITIES: With the current trend in blending of gasoline with ethanol and various industrial applications, demand for ethanol will continue to increase locally and internationally. There is also encouragement from Federal Government of Nigeria and governments/international organisations worldwide.
STRENGTH: Nigeria is the largest producer of cassava and can produce a lot more to cater for ethanol production through the rural population who are either unemployed or underemployed. Also a lot of unemployed graduates can be motivated to into mechanized production of cassava via co-operative societies.
EMSI Limited has acquired adequate land to site the factory at the outskirt of IBADAN city close to the rural area where cassava can be cultivated.
International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) located in Ibadan has developed high yielding cassava varieties with as high as 30 MT - 40 MT/ha an increase of 200-300%. This is expected to reduce cost of ethanol production with a price that will be internationally competitive.
EMSI Limited lack the required Technology/Know-how, we are therefore calling for Technical Partner to join EMSI Limited in a Joint Venture business for Ethanol manufacturing.
EMSI Limited is therefore calling on prospective technical partner for discussion on this project.
