Success Story - Biogas based Captive Power Generation & Composting Project

BIO-GAS BASED CAPTIVE POWER GENERATION CUM COMPOSTING PROJECT

A demonstration project on bio-gas based electricity generation & composting (by NADEP method) was installed and commissioned in NOVEMBERí1997at Shree Idar Panjrapole Sanstha based on about 300 - 350 cattles.

Salient features of the project is as follows:
 

Sr.No. ITEM DETAILS
1. Plant capacity
  • 85 m3/day plant for captive power generation
1*85 M3/day
2. Plant model 40 days HRT , vertical kVIC model
3. Daily dung requirement for both the plants 2250 kgs/day
4. Gas utilisation
  • Electricity generation
10 KVA/8KW capacity dual fuel Diesel Gen set.
5.
  • Daily units generation
  • gas supply for cooking
  • Manure production
average. 110 –120 units /day 5 - 6 hrs daily 1200 ton/year
6. Total cost of the project Rs. 6.50 lacs
7. Recurring expenditure /annum Rs. 1.67 lacs
8. SAVINGS :
  • As electricity bill
@ Rs. 3.67/unit  
  • Manure sale/use for composting @ Rs. 500/- ton
  • Net savings /year
47450 * 3.67 = 1.8607 lacs /year approx. 1200* 500 = 6.00 lacs /year approx. Rs. 6.20 lacs.
