A new biomass-based boiler technology has been launched in Kurukshetra, Haryana which is claimed to accommodate all types of agricultural residues as fuel and can also help in reducing the burden of stubble burning.

  • The new boiler has a capacity of 75 tonnes per hour and generates 15 MW of electricity.

  • This is Denmark-based technology.

  • This combustion technology is advantageous because of the vibrating grate.

  • Existing conventional boilers are designed only for specific types of agricultural residues such as paddy husk, mustard etc. and restrict the biomass contribution to energy production.

  • On the other hand vibrating grate boiler technology can be a better solution for firing any kind of biomass.
