Energy - Solar, Bio Gas


Biomass is considered a vital alternative to fossil fuels and can be used for a range of energy needs. Energy from biomass can be produced in three different ways:

  • Direct burning of biomass to get the energy
  • Convert biomass to ethanol and methanol to be used as liquid fuels in engines
  • Ferment biomass anaerobically to obtain a gaseous fuel called biogas
Presently the energy consumption is increasing and reserves of fossil fuel are reducing. The
importance of biomass based, decentralized fuel such as Biogas and Biomass based power
generation has been greatly increased.
It is a well established renewable and environment friendly fuel for rural energy needs. Biogas is ideally suited for rural applications where required animal or human excreta and agricultural waste are available in plenty.
Biogas is an environment friendly, cheap, clean and versatile fuel. Biogas is produced by
anaerobic digestion of degradable wastes such as cattle dung, vegetable wastes, sheep and poultry
droppings, municipal solid waste, sewage water, land fill etc.
Presently the biogas is mainly used for cooking and lighting purposes in the rural areas. The use of biogas in stationary engines used for different agricultural operations is going on. Its utilization is also feasible in automobiles, used for transportation purposes by enriching and compressing it in cylinders. Biogas can be converted in bio CNG after enrichment and bottling. It becomes just like CNG.
Biogas is rich in Methene and can be valued energetically – Heat (boiler) or by biogas co-generation.

PCS7, the DCS from SIEMENS has been employed for first Biogas plant in Tamilnadu, India which has already started generation of power. Total capacity of power generation shall be 2.5 MW. This will not only reduce the load on the power plants but will also help get environment cleaner.

SOLAR Power Plant
India is densely populated and has high solar insolation, an ideal combination for using solar power in India. India is already a leader in wind power generation. In the solar energy sector, some large projects have been proposed, Plan is to generate 700 GW to 2,100 GW in near future in India.
CAPPL was proudly associated with one of the model project at Gurgaon near New Delhi. The project features automation and control of all the utilities and also provide SCADA which is based on Web Navigator which will enable concerned people to observe the plant via Internet.
