Opportunities galore for entrepreneurs in biofuels

With the demand for non-renewable sources increasing, the biofuelsbusiness is opening new opportunities for entrepreneurs. Several countries, including India, have started attending to biofuels to counter pollution and reduce their dependence on fossil fuels. The businesspotential of biofuels for entrepreneurship activities in India is huge, and can be expected to grow at a faster pace in the years to come.

According to Dr Alok Adholeya, director, biotechnology & management of bioresources, TERI, “currently almost 70 per cent of India’s crude oil requirement is imported, which is expected to increase to 90 per cent by 2030.” According to Aswathi Muralidharan in an article, “Opportunities in biofuels,” this massive dependence on imports coupled with the price volatility of oil, which has been fluctuating from the current $40 a barrel to $147 a barrel in the recent past, may lead to biofuels playing an important role in reducing our dependence on imports in future.

In this regard, our National Biofuels Policy mandates 20 per cent of all diesel and petrol demand to be met by using plant-based rather than fossil-based diesel by 2017. According to Deepak Desai of Business Brains Consultants, at present, India’s biofuel production is not even enough to cater to 5 per cent of the demand. Still, India has been the fourth largest producer of ethanol, after the US, Brazil, and China, it being mainly used for the manufacture of beverages. This usage has been a major barrier in producing fuel-grade ethanol. However, keeping in mind the government mandate and the demand it is likely to create, there is ample opportunity for entrepreneurs in entering this sector of economy.

According to Muralidharan, in addition to bioenthanol, biodiesel can be produced from both oilseed crops, such as sunflower and soybeans, and animal fat. However, Jatropha is the preferred feedstock for production of biodiesel in India, especially because it is non-edible and has a smaller gestation period of two to three years, compared to other plants. Still, the supply of biodiesel in India is not present in large quantities, as the potential of Jatropha has recently been realized. However, this potential provides vast number of entrepreneurial opportunities to our farmers as well as agriculturalists.

Second, according to Muralidharan, algae as a source of biodiesel also appear as promising for entrepreneurial activities. That is because the use of oilseeds is a temporary phase that will be good for over a decade or two. After this, finding land to grow oilseeds for biodiesel will be a problem. According to Dr Adholeya, one can then get into the production of second- and third-generation biofuels, which includes algae. Also, producing biodiesel from algae has a secondary benefit: algae consume carbon dioxide as a nutrient. Thus, algae-based biodiesel production also helps to reduce carbon emissions and solve the global-warming challenge.

Furthermore, according to Muralidharan, technology is one significant barrier that an entrepreneur is likely to face while entering these entrepreneurship opportunities. The biofuels technology area is very complex, and hence focus on viable and innovative technology becomes imperative for any entrepreneur. According to Shashank Inamdar, MD & CEO, Praj Industries, “the key lies in structuring the business model to integrate the supply chain — right from feedstock to securing contract for end-products and adoption of futuristic technologies.”

Muralidharan also believes that another entry barrier is proof of performance. Most biofuel plants need customisation as they have several variables in their performance. Hence, according to Inamdar, it is essential that the entrepreneur has vast experience, data bank, and references at his disposal for these entrepreneurship opportunities to be fully exploited.

Finally, the role of educational institutions in promoting entrepreneurship activities in the renewable energy area cannot be neglected. IIT Kharagpur has been working on bioenergy research for several decades now and recently launched the PK Sinha Centre for BioEnergy (PKSCB). The PKSCB in its endeavour to promote bioenergy is harnessing the potential of young minds and encouraging entrepreneurship in this direction. In this regard, the young IITians are working toward the development and betterment of the rural masses. IIT Kharagpur has the unique advantage of deploying this skill to enhance the life of these rural masses along with promoting entrepreneurship. PKSCB is currently exploring ways to adopt a few villages around the campus in order to help make them self-sufficient and sustainable energy-wise, which is likely to be a boon for the local economy, in general.

2.4.4 Biomass-based Power

 

Biomass can be used instead of fossil fuels such as coal, oil or natural gas – as the feedstock to produce electricity. India being an agrarian country, there is easy availability of agricultural biomass which can be used to generate energy.

 

There are multiple ways to produce power from biomass. The three primary routes are: Combustion, Gasification and Anaerobic Digestion.

·         Combustion is easy to understand – instead of using coal or other fossil fuel, use biomass to produce steam that runs a turbine. Combustion of biomass for power could either be in the form of co-firing (when it is burned along with coal) or pure play biomass based combustion.

·         In the case of gasification, the biomass is first gasified into a mixture of organic gases, and this gas turn produces power in a gas engine.

·         Anaerobic digestion is usually applied to biomass that have a high amount of water in them (anaerobic digestion is most used for treating organic waste such as kitchen waste and sewage waste into energy). Under this route, microorganisms (bacteria) act upon the organic matter present in the biomass under anaerobic (absence of air) and convert it into biogas, which comprises predominantly methane.

                          

 

Total available potential

23.7 GW (EAI estimates peg it at about 25-30 GW) – cogeneration 7-10 GW, agro-residues – 17 GW

 

Exploited potential

ü  Biomass Direct - Combustion 1192 MW (approx)

ü  Biomass Direct - Gasification 153 MW (approx)

ü  Bagasse Cogeneration – 2079.73 MW installed

ü  The total installed capacity is 3424.73 MW (Aug 2012)

 

Projected capacity

EAI Estimates suggest India could have a total biomass installed capacity of over 10,000 MW by 2022, with growth coming from both cogeneration and agro residues.

 

Government incentives

ü  Customs duty exemption/reduction on parts of biomass operated electricity generator

ü  Excise duty exemption on parts of biomass operated Electricity generator

ü  Exemption in central sales tax

ü  80 % accelerated depreciation in the first year on selective components

ü  Income tax holiday for ten years

ü  Power sector reforms have encouraged investment in grid-connected biomass projects.

ü  Up to 90% for rural electrification projects

 

Investments

In the current Five Year Plan period (2007 to 2012), the government’s target for biomass power capacity is 1780 MW, with 500 MW from cogeneration plants

 

Challenges

ü  Feedstock supply and price security

ü  Channeling of sugarcane bagasse for alternative uses such as paper production

ü  Barriers in obtaining land for biomass cultivation for large scale applications (competition with food grain production)

 

Cost of power generation

Cost of electricity production – Rs 3-4/kWh. This includes all costs, including capital depreciation, O&M, insurance and interest costs. This cost could increase over the years as the cost of biomass increases

Company for generating power using biomass 

 

Company for generating power using biomass by MNRE

 

In a bid to encourage renewable energy sources of power generation in India, the union ministry of new and renewable energy (MNRE) is looking at setting up a company for biomass-based power generation and promotion on the lines of Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI).

 

The proposed company would focus on promotion and generation of biomass-based power and execute projects in the country. "We are focusing to promote biomass-based power generation in the country. For this, the ministry is planning to set up a company for biomass energy same as we set up SECI last year," said Tarun Kapoor, joint secretary, MNRE on the sidelines of 11th Green Power conference in Ahmedabad on Thursday.

 

 

  

 

According to MNRE data, currently biomass availability in India is estimated at about 500 millions tones per year, while studies have estimated surplus biomass availability at about 120–150 million tones per annum, covering agricultural and forestry residues corresponding to a potential of about 18,000 Mw of power generation.

 

It may be noted here that MNRE had set up Solar Energy Corporation of India on September 2011 under section-25 of the Companies Act, 1956 with an aim to set up state-sponsored solar power projects in the country.

 

"Of the over 200,000 Mw of installed power generation capacities in India, nearly 12 per cent or 25,000 Mw is generated from renewable sources. Looking at the growing need for electricity and issues faced in the conventional power generation, we need to increase our focus on renewable sources," said Kapoor.

 

The ministry has set a target to achieve 30,000 Mw of renewable energy generation capacities in India in the current five-year plan. However, the estimated investment is pegged at Rs 2.5 lakh crore. The ministry is exploring possibilities of setting up a fund aimed at renewable energy generation. "We are also looking to set up a fund for renewable energy generation," said the official.

 

Also, the ministry is working on a possibility to offer special subsidy for rooftop solar projects. "Rooftop solar projects has to take off in such a manner that people can generate power for their own use from their rooftops and sell the surplus power directly into the grid, without storing in batteries. For this, we are coming out with a separate subsidy scheme to give a push to rooftops," he said.

 

According to him, cost of solar rooftops would be around Rs 8 to 9 per unit and with subsidy, it can come down to Rs 5 to 6 per unit.

 

It may be noted here that Gujarat has already started a pilot project for rooftop solar power generation in the state capital Gandhinagar with generation capacity of 5 Mw on a public-private partnership model.

 

Meanwhile, the state government is also looking at spreading the project in other cities and towns of the state. "We are working with 20 municipalities and seven municipal corporations in the state to roll out the rooftop solar power generation projects. We are aiming at solar power generation to the tune of 100-200 Mw from this initiative," said D P Joshi, director, Gujarat Energy Development Agency (GEDA) during the conference.

 

On the solar energy front, few states including Gujarat, Rajasthan Maharashtra, Karnataka and Chhattisgarh were found to be doing well, while some others including Madhya Pradesh and Tamil Nadu have also taken up initiatives at their respective states, informed the central government official.

Hybrid cold storage system

 

  India is an agricultural economy and it needs cheap reliable storage facility in its rural centres to store its produce.

Rural India's two most common problems - lack of electricity and post-harvest losses - may soon be issues of the past as the government's Solar Energy Centre (SEC) has come up with a sustainable and possibly the most effective solution till date for application in rural areas. Composed of several components, the new system is called the solar biomass hybrid absorption cooling system.

Making efficient use of a blend of energy sources - wood chips (biomass), sunlight, and waste heat (exhaust) - the hybrid system operates on thermal energy and also generates electricity. It has been designed to supply power, produced from locally available biomass, to a few villages and also a cold storage plant in a remote location.

The depleting sources of fossil fuels, sharp increase in power tariffs to industrialists due to heavy subsidies to Agriculture, very high T&D losses, decrease in reliability of power required, leads one to think of the alternative soco-economic, efficient, environment friendly and reliable sources of energies.

 

The Power crisis in Maharashtra is increasing day by day with a peak demand shortfall of 2000 MW. Maharashtra is having a total installed capacity of 15085 MW (Including Central sector share) of centralized power plants and 623 MW of decentralized non-conventional power plants. Still there is a large potential in the non-conventional energy sources sector which can be tapped, out of which biomass is one of the major sources of energy. Maharashtra is having agricultural / agro -industrial surplus biomass with a potential of about 781 MW distributed through the state.

 

This distributed potential can be harnessed to meet increasing power demand and to improve the techno-economic scenario. Maharashtra has installed capacity of 3325 MW renewable energy projects. (as on 31st March, 2011)

    Algae converts at a very high efficiency into biocrude, as it has lots of caloric value and happens to have the same molecular structure as petroleum. So out of all the whole biomass sources, algae is probably the most efficiently converted to biocrude.

    Algae to Biofuel Technology
      Can you give me some background on how this technology was developed?

    OriginOil has always been a technology company, but initially we targeted the end to end process – both growth and harvesting.

    Then, in late 2008 my Nicholas Eckelberry invented the process we later called Single Step Extraction™, and we realized that while there are many growth technologies, there are few harvesting solutions, and ours was really promising.

    We spent a year and a half getting the basic design together, and then a company called MBD Technology came along from Australia. They were funded to make a LOT of algae, and they realized that they had to have a scalable way to get the algae out of the water and ruptured for downstream use, and they basically persuaded us to go into the field with them.

    We started working with them in June 2010, and by December they had pronounced our technology a success, and early in the following year they ordered progressively larger systems, which we have been delivering since then.

    With MBD, we have attained a scale appropriate to modular algae production. In other words, you’re not going to have one giant algae pond, you’ll have a series of smaller ones, and our harvesters (at 100K gallons/day) are appropriately sized to reach service one typical pond.

    What kind of barriers had development of this kind of technology faced before, and how were they overcome?

    The algae industry has been favored by very high priced products (nutritional and pharmaceutical applications) and so there wasn’t the drive to really cut energy and operating costs.

    With the new huge, lower-cost markets, you have to have low-cost production; and if it’s for fuel, you can’t expend more energy than you get out of it. This really brings to the forefront the biggest challenge in algae: the fact that it lives in a tremendous amount of water – a water-algae ratio as great as 1000 to 1.

    So a new technology was needed to get the algae out of the water economically, at large scale and with very low energy expense. Also, the process had to be chemical-free so as to enable re-use of the water.

    OriginOil’s process satisfies all these requirements. There is no other process that does – (see the comparative matrix below)

     

    Can you walk me through the process of how oil is extracted from algae?

    Right now, fuel is being made from the vegetable oil portion of algae (for example, the big sale of algae biofuel to the US Navy by Solazyme in Dec 2011), but extracting the whole algae from the water is better.

    You then process the whole algae concentrate into fuel or other products.

    Our role is simple: first we run the extraction stage, and then the concentration stage. This is our Solids Out of Solution™ or SOS process.

    (Please see the figure below).

     

     

    1. In the extraction stage, we use our Single Step Extraction™ process to make the algae (or other organic solid) come out of solution. Now it’s solids floating around in the water.

    (Imagine that you have made a pot of coffee, but now you want to pull the coffee back out. In this step, we are making the coffee particles stick to each other so they become visible in the water.)

    1. In the concentration stage, we use a flotation process to push all of the solids to the surface where they are easily raked off.

    The water below is now relatively clear and can be reused immediately (in the case of algae production) or can be further processed to ground water quality (as in the case of oil and gas water cleanup).

    (In the coffee analogy, you now push all the coffee solids to the surface, and you’re left with clear water below.)

    It’s chemical-free, very low-energy, and can be operated in a continuous flow mode.

    Now what you have coming out of this is a sludge or concentrate that is still 80-90% water. But now it’s economical to use centrifuges and filters to remove the rest of the water, if desired.

    To make biocrude from algae, you actually want to keep a certain amount of water. So you would get the concentrate to about 40% solids and then you would put it through a hydroconversion process of some kind. For example, a process like CRI’s which creates true distillates from biomass.

    What grade of crude is the resulting end product?

    You get biocrude which is functionally identical to light sweet crude oil.

    Usage of water and contamination of water have been issues since the fracking boom began. How much water is used in algae harvesting versus fracking?

    Algae is an aquatic species, so great quantities of water are used. However, this water can be waste water, or brackish, or ocean water. So there isn’t a comparison with frack water, which must be fresh.

    What are the advantages of algae versus other biofuels?

    Algae converts at a very high efficiency into biocrude, as it has lots of caloric value and happens to have the same molecular structure as petroleum. So out of all the whole biomass sources, algae is probably the most efficiently converted to biocrude.

    Can you give an update on the use of algae in carbon capture and storage? Is this what the Australia and other overseas projects are focused on?

    Yes, carbon capture and storage (or carbon capture and re-use) are strong in other countries and in Australia, very strong. The scale of the power station site operated by our partner MBD Energy is being dramatically expanded.

    Our project in France is being driven directly by an energy regulation for large buildings, RT 2020.

    As a pure technology company, we are less constrained by location, so we can adapt easily to where algae is being supported as it develops the scale needed to succeed.

    Can you predict a timeline for the development and implementation of Algae biofuel production over the next 5 years or so?

    We are seeing complete acceptance and commercialization of algae for high-end applications such as nutrition and cosmetics. However that relies on older processing technology. The bigger market for chemicals and fuels needs new techniques now proven in pilot stages. The next stage is scale-up, which will take the remainder of the decade.

    What do governing bodies need to do to support this advancement and what parts of the world are at the forefront?

    Primary need is for R&D support, and for large entities (such as the military) to guarantee offtakes. Despite congressional opposition, this is moving forward in the USA, mainly due to the courage and commitment of the Dept. of Defense. Australia is probably the furthest along as it has a carbon tax that can be applies to algae development.

    We also see growing momentum in Japan, due to the problems there with nuclear and with toxins. Algae production both remediates toxins and produces fuel and chemicals. We expect to see a great deal of activity from Japan.

    Additionally, Thailand and other Asian countries are showing strong momentum. East Asia in general, including China, are showing great promise. Finally, India, with Reliance Industries at the forefront, has momentum.
