Reportedly, there are currently two biomass power projects based on paddy straw in Kurukshetra and Kaithal, Haryana. The projects are owned by Haryana Renewable Energy Development Agency (HAREDA).

According to Hindustan Times, the plants both can process 350,000 tons of crop waste and generate 15 MWe. However, the report does not further comment on the plants’ current status. As further reported, there are two more plants in Jind (9.9 MW) and Fatehabad (9.9 MW). These plants are expected to start “procuring” 220,000 tons of paddy straw from this harvest season.

Haryana currently has 10 power projects using paddy straw to generate around 84 MW electricity, as further reported.
