Two bioenergy units to open in Navi Mumbai

Two bioenergy projects are being developed in the city of Navi Mumbai, Maharashtra, as reported by the Hindustan Times. The first plant estimated to be worth INR 300 million (EUR 3.75 million) is processing coconut waste and should be inaugurated within two weeks in the city’s suburb of Turbhe. The Energy and Rescources Institute (TERI) in cooperation with The Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) has created the unit which is able to convert coconut waste into electricity. NMMC currently collects around 1 tpd of coconut waste. A second biogas unit is planned in Airoli, Navi Mumbai. The plant running on toilet and other organic waste will be operational within a few months.
