Bio Mass Energy

Atmospheric gasifiers are used to convert biomass in gas. The process used for this is known as gasification. India has acquired the technological craftsmanship to install these plants.

Most of the equipment/ machinery required for this is available in India locally like:

Spreader-stoker-fired

Traveling grate / dumping grate boilers

Atmospheric pressure fluidized bed boilers

Circulating fluidized bed boilers

Harvesters

Balers

Briquetting Equipment

Pollution Control Systems

There are several combinations available for use of this technology. India is fast becoming self sufficient to design, plan, engineer, install, commission, test, operate and maintain plants using these technologies. All the resources required for this are available in India and thus provide a very cost effective solution.

The government has come out with incentives to promote these technologies as follows:

10.75% interest rate subsidy for biomass.

11.25% interest rate subsidy for bagasse.

Twelve states—Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Haryana, Karnataka, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Punjab, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, and Uttar Pradesh—They buy back the biogases at pre defined rates.

MNRE provides interest subsidies for co-generation projects. In addition, it provides capital subsidies to bagasse-based co-generation projects in cooperative with public sector sugar mills. State governments also provide various fiscal and financial incentives.

MNRE provides subsidies for installation of biomass gasifier systems. Financial incentives valued at $30,000 per 100 kWe are provided for 100% producer gas engines, with biomass gasifier systems for both off-grid and grid-interactive applications.

80% depreciation on equipment during first year.

Five-year tax break with 30% exemption for projects with power purchase agreement.
