Biomass Power Plants are an integral of inclusive development at KPIL as these projects generate rural employment as well as contribute positively to a greener environment by converting waste materials into clean energy.
KPIL has set up a Biomass plant at Padampur in the Ganganagar district of Rajasthan in 2003. This plant uses agricultural waste and crop residues (biomass) as inputs and generates 7.8 MW of power.
KPIL has set up another biomass plant in Tonk District of Rajasthan in 2006 of 8 MW capacity. This plant also uses agriculture waste and crop residues (biomass) as inputs.
Both Plants have logistics infrastructure to collect approx. 200,000 MTs of such inputs every year.
Kalpataru Power is one of the top companies around the globe to get registered with UNFCCC in 2003 and has benefited from CERs (Certified Emission Reduction) generated from its Ganganagar plant for 10 years. The project later on achieved Gold Standard Certification in 2012.
The second biomass plant at Tonk, achieved Gold Standard Certification in 2009.
Gold Standard is the only premium quality standard for carbon emission reduction projects with added sustainable development benefits and guaranteed environmental integrity. The Gold Standard label distinguishes projects and emissions under the Clean Development Mechanism, joint implementation, and voluntary offset markets.
