To tackle menace, Sikh NRI offers to set up biomass plants


To tackle menace, Sikh NRI offers to set up biomass plants

Chandigarh, November 7

To tackle the menace of stubble burning, an NRI from the US, Dr Chiranjeev Kathuria, today offered to set up biomass gas energy plants that will use stubble on build-operate-transfer basis.

Dr Kathuria runs New Generation Power International Company in the US.

Offering finance and technology to Revenue Minister Gurpeet Kangar, Dr Kathuria said the plan was to set up 200 small (5 MW) projects related to biomass power production, which would use stubble as raw material.

The NRI would meet the Chief Minister tomorrow to put forth his proposal. Dr Kathuria said it would reduce the expenditure being borne by the state on power subsidy given to the agricultural sector and free power to 20 lakh families.

Dr Kathuria said his company would be investing in a 4,000-MW power project —3,000 MW will be solar power and 1,000 MW biomass energy. “The latter will be generated using stubble of paddy and wheat. Stubble will be purchased from farmers and power generated from the waste product,” he added. — TNS
