Over 16,000 MW of Potential Biomass Power generation estimated in India! Upcoming Opportunities showcased at Biomass & WtE.

June 26, 2009 | 3 Comments

Globally, India is in the fourth position in generating power through biomass and with a huge potential, is poised to become a world leader in biomass energy production.

India can generate as much as 16,000MW of biomass power, according to the Biomass Resource Atlas of India, an Indian Institute of Science (IISc) project to map biomass potential in the country, but only about 700 MW is on stream now.

The upcoming capacity expansion opportunities in India’s growing Biomass to Power sector will be a key area of focus at the upcoming Biomass & WtE (Waste to Energy) conference in Shanghai on 28-29 October.

In fact, a key player in India’s upcoming Biomass to Power sector will be presenting insights at the conference. Anil Lala, Corporate Director at AllGreen Energy India Pvt. Ltd, a subsidiary of Singapore-based AllGreen Energy Pte., Ltd, will be sharing an update on All Green’s ambitious 10 Biomass-to-energy projects development plan.

AllGreen plans to raise US$100 Million to set up ten 6.5MW biomass-to-energy projects across India over three years. The first three, projected to go on-stream by March 2010, will be in Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Madhya Pradesh.

India has an installed power capacity of 147,000MW and experiences a 15% shortfall during peak hours, between 7pm and 10pm, according to the Central Electricity Authority, which advises the Union government on power policies. While AllGreen’s 6.5MW power plants may seem paltry in the larger scheme of things, biomass is touted to have the potential to light up rural India, and Biomass to energy has tremendous potential in this agrarian country.

Biomass & WtE also features insights from GN Murthy, Deputy General Manager – New Initiatives, ITC Limited – Agri Business Division the Biomass feedstock supplier for AllGreen’s project. Touching on, “Ensuring Stable Biomass Supply & Quality for AllGreen’s Mega Project”, Mr. Murthy will share on key challenges in delivering the 40,000-50,000 tones of biomass/annum needed by each of the ten planned 6.5 MW Power plants.

Beyond the central government, Indian states are also taking an active role in promoting Biomass to energy and inviting private investment. In June 2009, the State owned Punjab Energy Development Agency (PEDA) announced the allocation of 31 decentralized Biomass Power Projects with aggregate capacity of 338 MW to private developers.

At Biomass & WtE we’ve invited Shirish Garud, Fellow & Area Convenor, Renewable Energy Technology Applications & Coordinator, REEEP South Asia Secretariat to share a private investor’s perspective on “Promoting Bio-Energy from Agricultural Biomass & Municipal Solid Waste (MSW)” in India.

The REEEP South Asia Regional Secretariat was established in 2005 under the AEI (Asian Energy Institute) to create a link between energy services and income generation, using innovative financing as a catalyst, and support Private Pro-poor Small-scale renewable energy Investments in South Asia.

Biomass & WtE offers a cohesive update on upcoming opportunities in India’s Biomass to energy sector in India. Those keen on participating should >>CLICK HERE<< or email jaime@cmtsp.com.sg for more information.

June 23, 2009 | Comments Off on Puede ser viable comercialmente el 100% de la planta de jatrofa? Un experto difunde datos sorprendentes sobre los “residuos” de jatrofa

Es posible aprovechar el 100% de la planta de jatrofa? El investigador principal de la jatrofa, el Dr. William Ludwig Nolten, trata este tema durante la innovadora presentación “Tecnología de utilización de los residuos y torta de semillas de jatrofa”.

La mayoría de los agricultores actualmente plantan y cosechan semillas de jatrofa curca principalmente por su aceite puro de planta (pure plant oil, PPO) para uso como combustible ecológico y combustible ecológico diésel. Sin embargo, está comprobado que el PPO solamente representa apenas el 14% de los recursos utilizables en cada fruto.

Durante la presentación “Tecnología de utilización de los residuos y tortas de semillas de jatrofa”, el Dr. Nolten observa que es posible aumentar el uso de la planta de jatrofa a un asombroso 100%. ¡Las ganancias de la torta de semilla y biomasa de jatrofa podrían incluso exceder la rentabilidad de la venta del PPO!

“Los residuos de biomasa y semillas de jatrofa no son sustancias de desechos… usted puede transformar todo para que su proyecto sea un éxito”, declara el Dr. Nolten.

Como investigador de última generación de la jatrofa, y director de Waterland Group en Asia, el Dr. Nolten es ampliamente considerado uno de los expertos líderes de la industria. El Waterland Group plantó más de 60.000 hectáreas (148.000 acres) de jatrofa en Indonesia y posee más de 12.000 hectáreas (29.500 acres) que ya producen aceite.

La presentación del Dr. Nolten, una de las mejor calificadas en cuanto a su utilidad y relevancia en la conferencia Jatropha World Asia 2009 realizada en Kuala Lumpur, también cubrió los siguientes temas:

  • Comercialización de tortas de semillas y residuos de jatrofa en la industria farmacéutica.

TOP Jatropha Strategist Shares Startling Revelation! Returns from Jatropha Biomass can EXCEED returns from sale of Jatropha Oil

June 23, 2009 | 3 Comments

Drs. William Ludwig Nolten uncovers potential of Jatropha Seedcake & Biomass for boosting returns in a successful Jatropha project.

“Utilization Technology of Jatropha Seedcake and Residues” is an insightful video presentation featuring Drs. William Ludwig Nolten, Asia Director of Waterland Group, and one of the world’s most cutting-edge Jatropha researchers. The presentation, made at the JatrophaWorld Asia 2009 conference, was one of the highest rated in terms of usefulness and relevance.

Drs.  Nolten thoroughly debunks the idea that jatropha seedcake and biomass residues are waste substances. According to Drs. Nolten, jatropha PPO represents only 14% of the jatropha fruit. The other 86% are biomass, consisting of fruit shell (30%), seed husk (26%) and kernel (30%). The utilization of these resources provides additional revenuesand carbon credits for a jatropha project.

Watch & find out how you can use Jatropha in the following applications:

  • Organic Fertilizer and Soil Conditioner from Jatropha’s Agricultural Wastes- going completely green!
  • Pharmaceutical use of Jatropha seedcakes and residues- A Highly Lucrative sector
  • Potential use of seed kernel meal as livestock feed ingredient – can be traded at 30% higher than soybean meal
  • Agro-energy pellets for cooking and heating needs in rural areas
  • Biogas production from seedcake-a potential source for CDM and Carbon Credits

…Plus Many More…

$19 Billion Global Waste-to-Energy Sector seeks out China. Upcoming Opportunities Explored in Biomass & WtE conference in Shanghai.

June 4, 2009 | Comments Off on $19 Billion Global Waste-to-Energy Sector seeks out China. Upcoming Opportunities Explored in Biomass & WtE conference in Shanghai.

The global market for thermal and biological waste-to-energy (WTE) technologies was worth $19.9 billion in 2008. According to projections, the sector will be worth $26.2 billion in the next five years. And the industry has now set its sights on China for new project developments and investments.

China represents a brand new frontier for the waste-to-energy sector.  Beijing has earmarked 350 billion Yuan (S$75 billion) this year for clean water and waste management on top of a 1 Trillion Yuan allocated under its 11th 5-year plan, which runs to 2010. China is also the world’s largest producer of municipal solid waste. In 2004, China surpassed the United States as the world’s largest producer of municipal solid waste at about 190 million tonnes a year. By 2030, the World Bank estimates that will have more than doubled to at least 480 million tones.

Companies like China Everbright is already in tie-up talks with waste-to-energy company Covanta Holdings, while Waste Management Inc , the largest trash hauler in the United States, announced plans to bid for refuse-fired power plants in the mainland.

In fact, the country’s largest planned waste-to-energy power plant, the Bao’an Waste-to-Energy Plant in Shenzen, will have a daily production capacity of 4,200 tons. Beijing, Shanghai and Tianjin have also begun construction of large incineration projects, according to state media reports.

CMT’s Biomass & Waste-to-Energy conference, to be held on 28-29 October in Shanghai explores these exciting new developments in the waste-to-energy industry , with focus on emerging technologies, upcoming projects around the world, feedstock issues, financing and logistics challenges across the Biomass & Waste-to-Energy value chain with a particular focus on the upcoming industry in China.

Key highlights of the program will include power generation from agricultural biomass, energy recovery from municipal solid waste or WtE (Waste to Energy), securing feedstock with biomass and dedicated energy crops, biomass processing, cellulosic ethanol and biotechnologies converting biomass to fuels and chemicals.

Beyond these, the program will feature intensive panel discussions, spot-on analysis of key industry trends and informative project sharing sessions by the world’s top Biomass players. As part of the Biomass & WtE program, the conference plans to offer two concurrent tracks, to cover Waste to Energy & Cellulosic Ethanol Biotechnologies.

Biomass & WtE is part of the BiomassWorld series of conferences, which has seen participation from over 300 key executives from leading bio-energy companies’ biomass project operators and developers, bio-refinery executives, bio-power executives, biodiesel executives, feedstock developers, policy makers, waste management experts and top players from over 40 countries.

Biomass & WtE will provide an excellent platform for companies to ‘be seen’ and promote their organization and their interests to the industry’s most influential players and investors who will be at the conference.
