Recycling of Agricultural Waste in India

  1. 1. Shantanu Tripathi M.Sc. Biotechnology Independent Researcher  Shantanu.tripathi@hotmail.com  +91-9871919699  +91-9350671790
  2. 2. Waste Management New Ways of Old Science
  3. 3. The Time is Over…
  4. 4. Growing Population We Global Warming
  5. 5. SUGAR CANE No. 2
  6. 6. wheat No. 2
  7. 7. rice No. 2
  8. 8. Corn • No. 6 in Corn No. 6
  9. 9. Population • No. 2 in population No. 2
  10. 10. Pollution 2 out of 5
  11. 11. Solid Waste In the Top 10
  12. 12. 32,000 / Day
  13. 13. Until 2021
  14. 14. Agricultural Residue Waste - Left over after harvesting the Primary Crop.
  15. 15. 255.4 Million Metric Tonnes
  16. 16. 255.4 Million Metric Tonnes Agri. Waste ?
  17. 17. What Happens To That?
  18. 18. Difference is Awareness
  19. 19. Area of Focus Agriculture Energy Food Water Solid Waste Land Management Major Concerns Waste Water Problems Food & Energy Culprits Agri. Waste Food Waste Domestic & Industrial Waste
  20. 20. Two Ways
  21. 21. Ex-situ In-situ • Bioventing • Land farming • Bioslurping • Bio-piling • Biosparging • Bioreactors • Pyotoremediation • Slurry bioreactors
  22. 22. Feedstock Sources • Agricultural • Agro-industrial • Timber residues • Municipal waste • Industrial waste
  23. 23. • Is it possible to generate energy from purely agricultural waste at a commercial scale? • Can Question No. 1 be answered in a way that the answer itself does not generate another residue to be taken care of.
  24. 24. • Can we employ a Commercially Viable Technology to fasten up the decomposition of the Agri. Waste without the use of chemicals that has anything to do with disturbing the soil and the flora and fauna associated with it.
  25. 25. The Way Out???
  26. 26. PNK Biofertilizer Soil Health Agri. Waste Conventional Energy Bio-energy Electricity Availability
  27. 27. Most Common Method
  28. 28. 80-90% Efficiency
  29. 29. • Combined heat and power (CHP) systems – ranging from small-scale technology to large grid-connected facilities – Give higher efficiency
  30. 30. • Development of efficient biomass handling technology (Collection & Storage) • Improvement of agro-forestry systems • Establishment of small and Large-scale biomass-based power plants
