The project has been commissioned by Godrej Agrovet Limited, a part of Godrej Group which is one of the largest professionally run private-sector groups in India and has emerged as a major industrial and agricultural conglomerate acclaimed for the excellent quality of its products and services. Godrej follows a Good & Green Product policy, i.e. having a third of its portfolio revenues comprising good and/or green products and services – defined as products that are environmentally superior or addresses a critical social issue (e.g., health, sanitation, disease prevention) for consumers at the bottom of the income pyramid.
The project is a co-generation unit and has commissioned one 35 TPH biomass based boiler and a 2.5 MW turbine generator. The generated steam and electricity is used to meet the captive demand of a Greenfield palm oil production unit. The project will use in-house generated renewable biomass fibre, shell and empty fruit bunches in the palm fruit processing facility to meet its energy requirements.
