BioEnergy Consult- Provider of Waste-to-Energy Solutions

BioEnergy Consult is committed to the development of sustainable energy systems based on non-food renewable resources and different types of wastes. Our primary mission is to promote Renewable Energy and Sustainable Development worldwide, particularly in developing countries. We are actively engaged in the conceptualization, promotion, implementation, development and financing of Biomass Energy, Waste-to-Energy, Sustainable Biofuels, Waste Management and Alternative Energy ventures in different parts of the world.

BioEnergy Consult promises to address many environmental issues, especially global warming and greenhouse gases emissions, and foster sustainable development among poor communities. The potential role of alternative energy systems in transforming global energy outlook, and addressing climate change concerns, is enormous. We endeavour to bring Sustainable Energy Technologies within the reach of developing countries and to create a mass awareness about the challenges posed by environmental issues like Climate Change and Global Warming.

BioEnergy Consult is an organization with a well-defined mission: To provide cost-effective sustainable solutions through environmentally-safe and well-proven Alternative Energy Systems and Waste-to-Energy Technologies to ensure better Quality of Life.

BioEnergy Consult welcomes inquiries, comments and feedback from entrepreneurs, technology firms, governments, NGOs, investors, social groups, researchers and general public.

Waste-to-Energy Projects in India – Technical Issues

For self-sustaining combustion, there should be a heat content of at least 2500 kcal/kg (about 5000 Btu/lb). Usually below 1500 kcal/kg, it is not recommended for combustion. Indian MSW is infamous for its low heat content (770 to 1000 kcal/kg, on dry basis, sometimes as low as 600 kcal/kg), high moisture content (30 to 55 % by weight) and high inert contents (30 to 50 % by weight). It is a fact that Indian MSW is not directly suitable for incineration. Waste preparation is a must for incinerating Indian MSW. Waste should be dried; inerts removed and heat content improved to about 2500 kcal/kg.

In order to determine whether a thermal processing project is a feasible waste management alternative for any city, the following questions should be addressed:

  • Is source-segregation practiced in the target area?
  • Is the thermochemical technology approved by the MNRE and the CPCB?
  • Is there a buyer for the energy (electricity/CHP) produced by the energy recovery facility?
  • Is there strong political and public support for a WTE facility?
  • Are there enough funds to establish state-of-the-art small modular gasification / pyrolysis plant?

Elements of successful Advanced Thermal WTE Project

  • Waste segregation
  • Waste receiving and storage capability
  • Waste preparation plant
  • Gasification/pyrolysis process
  • Syngas treatment process
  • CHP / Power generation
