Sugarcane leaves, millions of tonnes of which go waste in India every year, can be used to generate power, save diesel and produce enough heat to run jaggery units and even burn small animals in a crematorium.
“Production of power via loose leafy biomass is a unique technology and it is believed that in gasification of sugarcane leaves we are the first in the world”, report scientists from the Nimbkar Agricultural Research Institute, at Phaltan in Maharasthra.
They presented their findings at an International conference in Switzerland in May 1999 and have also submitted them to the Department of Non-Conventional Energy Sources. In view of the pressing need in India to identify indigenous and renewable sources of energy, NARI initiated the project to gasify loose sugarcane leaves to generate electricity in the ten-fifteen kilowatts range. Besides, producing power, the scientists have successfully used the sugarcane leaves to generate heat for jaggery-making units and specially-designed furnaces to incinerate small dead animal like sheep. Test on a 15 kilovolt ampere diesel genset powered by sugarcane leaves gasifier showed that 70-90 percent diesel substitution could be achieved with a five KW load. The NARI gasifier, which is non-polluting and safe, also produces char which is 15-28 percent of the fuel.
The char boosts the overall efficiency of the system to 80-85 percent and when mixed with a suitable binder it forms an excellent briquetting fuel for cooking purposes. In India alone, about 430s million tonnes of crop residues are produced every year, out of which 330 million tonnes are used as feed or fodder and the remaining 1oo million tonnes simply disposed off by burning in open fields.
“This is a colossal waste of potentially useful source of energy”, says the report by the NARI director, Anil K Rajvanshi, and his colleague Rajiv Jorapur. Most of the residues are in a loose leafy form such as sugarcane leaves, wheat husk, rise husk and safflower straw. The residues usually have high amounts of ash and are, therefore, difficult to gasify. In their studies, the NARI scientists used sugarcane leaves that have been chopped into one-to-five cm long pieces and sun dried.
