Under the United Nation Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) -Project No. 341 we have set up a 6.5 MW biomass (rice husk) based power plant for our captive power requirement in 2002. We have been credited 11,961 CERs in for this initiative.
Moreover, by 2002, our oil fired boilers were converted into rice husk fired boilers for process steam and power under UNFCCC Project No. 348. The following CERs have been credited to us so far under this project:
Year CER Credit Under Project 348
2006-07 38,679
2007-08 24,471
2008-09 19,498
2009-10 32,666
2010-11 29,876
With these initiatives we have not only replaced fossil fuels but also helped to generate employment amongst the farmers who are now selling their rice husk - a product that was earlier dumped or used to burn in uncontrolled manner in and around the rice mills.
Our green energy approach is aligned with the renewable sources of energy policies of the local government (Punjab Government's New and Renewable Sources of Energy (NRSE) Policy 2001).
For a successful substitution of fossil fuel with biomass we have won the National Energy Conservation Award of the Petrochemical Sector in 2001 and 2002.
