Industrial Waste Based Power Projects

State has more than 150 MW energy production potential through the processing of waste disposal of various industrial units-distilleries, food processing industries, dairies, pulp and paper mills etc. By establishing these projects concerned units, not only help in keeping the environment clean but also meet the energy requirements (thermal/electrical) of the industry.

Till the end of the year 2013-14, 108.67 MW capacity (biogas/electrical equivalent) has been created from the waste generated through various industrial units (mainly distilleries) and is being used as captive power. For the year 2014-15, proposals of 16-50 MW has been received on which the work is going on.
