With the cyclic nature of Indian Sugar Industries and prices of sugar vis a vis cost of inputs, it has become extremely difficult for the sugar factories to earn profits on sustainable basis. Under the circumstances value addition through by-product utilization has become extremely important. Bagasse is the major co-product and its use for production of GIP (Grid Interactive Power) is one of the most lucrative ways for extra revenue generation which in turn helps sugar industries to become economically sustainable.

On the other hand, renewable power is the most wanted form of power at present in our country to save our coal reserves as well as environment. Our power production always lags behind generation. Bagasse based cogeneration is one of the major sources of power that can help us to reduce the gap between demand and production of power in India.

Estimated potential of bagasse based cogeneration GIP is about 10500 MW and as on today we are far behind this target. Technical advancements in terms of efficiency enhancement and decreased station heat rate may help the industries to export more power from the same available fuel and also help to achieve the targeted power generation.

The main objectives of this cogeneration cell is
  • To assists the industry and other related organizations in various ways in attaining their targets in bagasse based cogeneration and biomass power.
  • To impart technical knowledge amongst the industry personnel.
  • To improve technical efficiency parameters of cogeneration in India.

  • Preparation of Detailed Project Reports.
  • Vetting of project reports.
  • Setting up of new cogeneration projects.
  • Technical assistance for Expansion and Modernization of existing units.
  • Planning, addition and implementation of Bagasse Drying projects in the existing projects.
