Biogas energy in Pudhuchatram - India


This Gold Standard project, located in Namakkal, India, converts up to 120,000 tons/year of chicken litter and other industrial residues into renewable electricity. The project activity mitigates environmental and hygienic problems as well as supports regional smallholders to implement sustainable agriculture.

Besides the avoidance of methane emissions from open chicken manure storage, the project displaces carbon intensive grid electricity by a renewable source and mitigates severe environmental as well as hygienic problems in the region.

By generating renewable power exclusively from biomass waste, competition with food production is avoided. Furthermore, up to 10,000 tons of high quality solid organic fertilizer is being produced as a by-product from the biogas generation, supporting local and regional smallholders to implement sustainable agriculture.
