Biomass cycleA 2 MW biomass waste-based co-generation power plant has been commissioned at Yamunanagar at a cost of Rs 15.23 crore at Bharat Starch Industries, said Sumita Misra, Director, Haryana Renewable Energy Development Agency (HAREDA). The plywood waste, available in huge quantity in Yamunanagar, will be used in the project, she added. With installation of this project, the firm can generate high-quality continuous steam for its process plant and generation of 2 MW power required for the industry. Bharat Starch Industries earlier used the steam purchased from Ballarpur Industries Ltd for its processing requirements and was dependent on the grid and generating sets for electricity.

She said biomass cogeneration is economically viable technology for fulfilling thermal and electrical requirement of industries and especially in Haryana, where biomass is available in abundance.
Misra said HAREDA is promoting this technology and creating awareness by organising seminars and workshops. It is also promoting biomass power projects for generation of power, for which the state has notified an attractive tariff for purchase of power. As many as 21 such projects of 189 MW are being implemented in the state.
