Energy Private Limited
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:
Travelling grate / dumping grate boilers
Atmospheric pressure fluidized bed boilers
Circulating fluidized bed boilers
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
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
