Narsi’s Notes

Assuming that the stubble waste referred to here is paddy straw, it is an interesting development, for three reasons.

One, as stated in the quote, it solves the problem of these stubble being burnt; two, collecting the stubbles has been a challenge and if NLC has managed to collect (or organized someone to collect) stubble waste at large volumes, it is indeed a commendable effort.

Thirdly, paddy straw has not been used in a major way to make biomass pellets – relatively woodier feedstock such as peanut shells and plant stalks have been the preferred raw material – and so, using pellets from paddy straw and that at scale is quite a positive development.
