Power plants must boost capacity to absorb stubble: Farm equipment makers 28.11.2017 All Economy & Policy Stories
Grappling with the menace of stubble burning though the government is aggressively pushing power plants to use atleast 10 per cent of paddy stubble as fuel in state-run power plants, few big farm equipment manufacturers say much more needs to be done to solve the problem as the total paddy straw produced is far more than the total capacity of power plants of power plants in Northern states.Punjab alone according to industry estimates produces around 200 lakh metric tonnes of paddy stubble (around 20 million tonnes) in one single season, while the thermal power plants in the state have a capacity to absorb around 7 lakh metric tonnes of paddy stubble. The state is one of the big producers of paddy in the country and extensively uses combine harvesters to harvest paddy. It along with neighbouring Haryana has currently around 250-odd mechanised balers, which convert paddy straw into biomass, ready for use by power plants.In mechanized harvesting the entire stubble doesn't get uprooted ..

CEA releases policy to promote power generation from paddy straw 24.11.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
Residents from Delhi and the National Capital Region can now expect relief next year from the pollution caused due to the burning of stubble by farmers in Punjab and Harayana. The Central Electricity Authority (CEA) on behalf of ministry of power has framed up a policy for biomass utilisation for power generation through co-firing in coal based power plants. CEA estimates that 30 to 40 million tonnes of paddy straw that remains unutilised and burnt in north west India has potential to generate about 6,000 to 8000 MW and 45,000 million units of electricity annually by co firing it along with coal in existing power plants. About 2.5 to 3 lakh tonnes of biomass pellets are required for 7% blending in a thermal power plant of 1,000 MW capacity. Biomass co-firing has a potential to create a market for large scale consumption of agro residue and convert into electricity in eco-friendly and cost effective manner while mitigation problem of air quality deterioration. The policy envisages that the appropriate ...

How much paddy stubble can we use in thermal plants? 17.11.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
The National Green Tribunal (NGT) on Thursday directed National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) Limited to submit by next Tuesday as to how much crop or paddy residue it can use as raw material with coal to produce electricity. The tribunal also sought to know NTPC’s total coal demand for its seven thermal power plants, six in Uttar Pradesh and one in Haryana.  A four-member Tribunal bench, headed by Justice Swatanter Kumar, passed the directions while hearing the matter on stubble burning. Widespread paddy stubble burning in October and November across Punjab, Haryana and parts of UP had worsened Delhi’s already toxic air early this month in a repeat of last year’s smog.  The Tribunal also directed state governments of Himachal Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan to submit information on biomass plants that convert paddy straw into pellets.  During the hearing, NGT sought to know from NTPC how much coal it would save if paddy straw converted to pellets was used as fuel for power plants. “Have you ...
