Waste Alliance Lecture Series: Agricultural residue for community cooking in Rural India

Wednesday, October 03, 2018 at 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Building 1, Room 242, 1-242

Prof. Sanjay Mahajani, Professor-in-Charge Tata Centre for Technology and Design and Professor of Chemical Engineering at IIT Bombay

The dry garden/agriculture/forest waste may be used for community cooking in rural India. It has a potential to replace wood/LPG, partially or fully. The approach suggested here is pelletization of waste followed by gasification. The waste has relatively high ash content and hence the gasifier to be used for cooking, should be cleverly designed to meet user's expectations. It is also necessary to build an ecosystem that takes care of biomass supply and pelletization facility. The talk would cover the work done by the project team on several such aspects.
