Our Project

Pine Briquetting Project in Kotdwara

Biomass offers itself as a sustainable and carbon-neutral source of energy, its inefficient use results in wastage, indoor air pollution and related respiratory and other health problems. Although large quantities of surplus biomass residues are available in India, the difficulties experienced in using and transporting them has severely restricted their usage. The use of gasification technology combined with densification results in the efficient and clean burning of biomass and has a significant potential in for utilizing unused biomass for several applications.

We're making biomass briquettes using forest residues or agro-waste which include a wide-range of residues: dry leaves, grass, unwarranted weeds, (Lantana) forest residue, cow dung, sawdust from local sawmills, and highly inflammable pine needles that cause forest fires. These briquettes are then supplied to brick kilns manufacturers, boiler operators for steam generation, and food processing industries that use coal for heating purposes. The low cost and guaranteed availability of the densified biomass is the main motivator for the clients to switch to the clean energy alternative. Our project will result in the reduction of CO2 emissions from burning the fossil fuels that is responsible for the climate change. Moreover, the reliance on fossil fuels will be reduced which is one of the top priorities of India. Our project will empower rural/semiurban population to fulfill their thermal and electricity needs and develop sustainable business to generate incomes for the poor farmers.

  • Our production capacity of producing 15,000 tons/year of briquetted biomass.
  • Produce a Gold Standard Carbon offset of around 20,000 tCO2/year.
  • More than 400 people mostly women and in rural areas will be employed.
  • Biomass source Pine needles, saw dust, lantana, cow dung and other agro-residues.
  • Industrial boilers, brick kilns, restaurants, mid-meal programs, ashrams, and cafeterias to replace coal and LPG.
  • Social , Economic and Environmental Well being.
  • Expansion Plan.
