Biomass Power Plant in the initial set up phase in India had an installed capacity of 6 to 7.5 MW. The right kind of capacity from economic viability point of view should be between 7.5 to 10 MW. Beyond this capacity, the logistics of managing raw material would be difficult. The project size depends on the fuel (biomass) availability near the project location.
For a capacity of 10 MW and for a biomass fuel with average gross calorific value of 3150 Kcal/kg, the total fuel requirement is around 1.0 Lakh / annum. The collection and storage of biomass is the critical activity for any biomass project to succeed.
Biomass power is carbon neutral. Any carbon that is released into the atmosphere during combustion of biomass was absorbed from the atmosphere at one point in the tree’s life – so what it took out ends up going back. In many cases, the carbon released is re-absorbed by another plant so it never reaches the atmosphere in the first place. With fossil fuels, the carbon released during combustion has been inaccessible to the atmosphere for millennia and therefore adds additional carbon to the atmosphere.
A boiler is a core equipment of power plant; biomass boilers are used in biomass or co-firing power plant. Contact us for 2 ton - 400 ton biomass fired boilers for your project!
