Costs of feedstock for Biomass gasification

Biomass gasification utilizes renewable feed stocks for liberating the synthesis gas by thermal decomposition under high temperature conditions. Among the factors affecting the production protocol, cost economics play a critical role and is well pronounced in cases when the scale of operation is magnified. Entrepreneurs of gasification technology often make contracts with farmers or traders […]

VC / PE Perspectives and Opinions on Biomass Power

Indian VCs have not really done a good amount of investing in cleantech. Cleantech perhaps  is not really a VC game as it is more of an engineering related discplie that does not offer the types of scalabilitiees that VCs desire or the exit periods. VCs also do not understand cleantech well enough to take […]

Prominent biomass feedstock for gasification

Biomass for power generation by combustion or gasification is normally variable in its chemical composition of electron rich reactants, ash content, moisture, sulphur and nitrogen content etc. As a result, selection of the most convenient feedstock is an issue of debate. The degree and diversity of contaminants strongly influence the production and purification of synthesis […]

Current Status of Biomass Gasification in India

India has initiated its power generation from renewable sources by several different principles namely gasification and combustion. Biomass gasification is carried out at different power capacity levels ranging from 25 kW to 2 MW and above. When a comparative analysis is made between combustion and gasification of biomass, the former technology is best operational under […]

Biomass Gasification for the Environment and Economy

There are a whole lot of benefits from biomass gasification, both economy wise and ecology wise. Speaking of environmental benefits, gasification plants produce significantly lower quantities of air pollutants, which is really a good thing.  The process can also reduce the environmental impact of waste disposal because it can use waste products as feedstock, generating […]

How Punjab Will Benefit from All Its Agricultural Residue- A Case Study

Agricultural residues never go to waste. Not when they can be used for generating energy. In this context, the government of Punjab, India, plans to produce about 1,000 MW of green energy from livestock residues by 2015. When you think about it, this has huge economical and environmental benefits. In a region where large quantities […]

Rice husk used for power in one of India’s poorest states- A case Study

Whoever thought rice husk can generate power needs a medal! Considering how much rice husks go to waste in a country where rice is the staple food, it is comforting to know fossil fuels are not our only resort for power production. Thanks to Manoj Shinha, a renewable energy entrepreneur pioneered using discarded rice husks […]
