Jai Rathod, follows up on his May article on India’s biomass sector. In this piece, Jai turns his attention to the role of captive biomass plantations.
In my previous article we saw the current state of the biomass power sector in India which is not very encouraging due to non-availability of feedstock both in terms of quantity as well as a fixed price – absolutely essential requirements for any power plant.
The only way to tackle this feedstock problem is by having your own dedicated captive biomass plantations. Think about it. You cannot grow coal but you can grow biomass which can then be converted into coal through torrefaction or used in its present state as fuel. Its as good as owning your own captive Green Coal mine.
