Time to Focus on Biomass

24 Mar 2022

Biomass accounted for about 12% of total energy consumption in India in 2019. Converting biomass into commercial energy with modern technology should, therefore, become the focus of public policy. The goal should be to get usable commercial energy from the bio-waste generated in the country, including the rice crop stubble burnt in the fields in North India after harvesting. This would need analysis of the different categories of bio-waste and new pragmatic policy interventions need to be designed to suit ground realities.
