PRESPL and the funding round is being promoted under the Bermaco Group.

“The bioenergy, biofuel sector in India is looking very bullish right now,” PRESPL managing director Monish Ahuja told Mercom India.

According to Ahuja, PRESPL has raised $2 million in Series A funding.

“Now, we are looking to raise $5 million from the NEEV Fund set up by SBICAP Ventures Limited and up to $3-5 million from another unnamed investor,” Ahuja told Mercom India.
