NEW DELHI, INDIA: Solena-ABSi India Pvt Ltd (SAIP) has executed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with North Delhi Power Ltd (NDPL), to produce up to 40 MW of clean renewable energy, using SAIP’s patented plasma gasification bio-energy solution, into NDPL’s distribution network of North and Northwest Delhi.
The new, organic waste to energy, bio-power plant that SAIP is developing will utilize SAIP’s next generation plasma gasification technology and process to convert biomass from municipal, agricultural and other organic wastes into a clean renewable bio-synthetic gas—without incineration or combustion.
This bio-syngas, a replacement for natural gas, will be piped or partially transported to NDPL’s upcoming 108 MW electric generation plant at Rithala enabling NDPL to deliver clean, baseload power and propel New Delhi as a model in the drive towards a greener India.
SAIP estimates the thermal power output of its organic waste to energy plant will be approximately 40 MW gross. The resulting green energy from this bio-syngas will be produced with zero net carbon emissions, no SVOCs or SOx, tar, fly ash, flue gas and virtually no pollutants as compared to the legacy sources of fuel that have historically driven traditional power plants.
“We are excited with this development and our partnership with NDPL. This represents a milestone not only for Delhi but also for India as it pursues greater energy production from clean, renewable sources to sustain its rapid economic growth,” said SAIP CEO Rajeev Sharma. “This agreement validates our steadfast efforts to bring clean and efficient power to Indian cities and villages with our leading edge plasma gasification based solutions.”
Sunil Wadhwa, MD, NDPL, added:“Renewable power is one of the most suitable and feasible sources of power from the perspective of environment and security of source. We are happy to have joined hands with SAIP to bring green energy to our upcoming power plant, which will help reduce carbon emissions. The use of bio-fuel, in addition to our extensive focus on solar power, reiterates our commitment to introduce environment friendly and green technology in our distribution area for conservation of environment and combating climate change.”
