Benefits:

  • Conversion of coconut shell into activated corban as a bi product.
  • Conversion of wood into corban as a by product.

Cost Benefits:

Cost of Power / Unit:

1.1 kg of Biomass = 1 KWH
Cost of 1 KWH of power generated is about Rs. 5.50
(Considering Rs.4,000/- MT of biomass and additional operation & maintenance cost).

Cost of Fuel Replacement / Liter of Fossil Fuel:

4 Kg of biomass = 1Kg of LPG or any other fossil fuel.
Cost of replacing 1 Kg if LPG or any other fossil fuel is about Rs.18.00 (Considering Rs 4,000/- MT of biomass and additional operation & maintenance cost).
Minimum Savings of 50% can be achieved for any fossil fuel.
