Food Waste Bulk Generators

Biodegradable waste is any waste that can be decomposed by the natural processes and converted into the elemental form. Example: kitchen waste, food waste, garden waste, animal dump, oil and grease, tissue paper, etc.

The landfilling of waste, especially biodegradable waste, can pollute the environment and produce greenhouse gasses (GHG) which contribute to climate change. Bio-degradable waste management is to prevent or reduce as far as possible, any damage to the environment caused by land filling such as pollution of surface water, ground water, soil, air and the production of greenhouse gasses that contribute to climate change.

City Waste to City Bus Model

The CBG processed from food waste meets the BIS 16087 / 2016 standards and is useful for replacement of a wide range of Fossil Fuels including LPG, Diesel, Furnace Oil and CNG for transport purpose.

Pune Project: Pre-segregated Organic Waste – 350 TPD

CBG Generation Potential - 21850 SCM / 15750 kgs per day

Potential to Fuel – 200 nos. of 50 Seater Buses (considering average running of approximate 320 kms per day / bus = total 64000 kms clean public transport / day)

Organic Manure Potential – 70 TPD

Carbon Emission Reduction (CER)

a. Emission avoided from landfill disposal – 74860 tCO2e/yr

b. Emission avoided from CNG replacement – 13675 tCO2e/yr

CBG generated from city organic waste is ideal to replace city transport. This archetype is a great medium –

  • a. To promote better segregation of waste – End to end solutions ensuring waste coming back to the society in a form of CBG which can be used to replace fossil fuel bolsters citizen’s belief and encourages them for better segregation, eventually rendering clean and hygiene city
  • b. Creation of Smart & Sustainable public transport: city waste – city bus model is 100% sustainable & smart
  • c. "Greenest" fuel resulting in a significant carbon footprint reduction. CBG is certified as 100% Carbon neutral gas by the United Nations Federation for Climate Control (UNFCC). When derived from segregated organic waste, via Anaerobic Digestion, CBG is considered carbon net-negative. (Source: CARB: Low Carbon Fuel Standard Report, 2009.
  • d. Better Performance and Less Maintenance– CBG has an octane number of 130 that is higher than petroleum fuels Octane number of 93 indicating higher thermal efficiency and lower emissions.

CBG requires less air for combustion hence allowing less humidity, nitrogen and carbon dioxide in the combustion process. This also means higher combustion efficiency and lower emissions.

Higher Methane percentage and high purity results in a higher methane number of 96% (± 2%) which results in elimination of knocking in internal combustion engines. Also ensures higher compressibility factor and therefore results in higher torque in the engine.

  • e. An alternate fuel made from waste (eliminating waste going to the landfill and turning its waste into fuel) can free public buses from reliance on fossil fuel. Gives impetus to government’s effort & policies for displacing the fossil fuels used for fueling public transport and the necessity of finding environmentally sustainable solutions for the treatment and recycling of organic waste. This will also free up land for other productive use of the city.
  • f. Carbon credits – The entire project is eligible for carbon credit. Municipal Corporation and city public transport service can collectively register and claim carbon credits for processing organic waste in scientific manner and substituting fossil fuel with CBG (clean fuel) for city public transport.
