Gangakhed Sugar & Energy Private Ltd (GSEPL) has decided to develop an Integrated Cane Processing Plant (ICPP) at Village Vijaynagar – Makhani in Gangakhed Taluka, Parbhani District, Maharashtra, in order to tap the sugarcane potential in the region and also to aid in the sustainable development of the region. As a part of the ICPP, GSEPL has proposed to install a 6000 TCD Sugar Plan, a 60 KLPD Distillery and 30 MW Bagasse Based Cogeneration Plant.
Annual Emission Avoided
Verified Carbon Standards
The project activity involves setting up of a 30 MW bagasse based Co- generation plant at the ICPP site. The Bagasse based Co – generation plant will utilize the bagasse generated in-house to the fullest potential and the additional fuel requirement for the operation of the plant would be met by procuring the surplus biomass residues available in the region. The power generated will be used to meet the power demand for the sugar plant1 and the surplus power will be exported to the grid. In the baseline scenario, the power supplied by the project would have been generated by a) the GHG intensive thermal power plants connected to the state grid and b) in a reference plant with lower efficiency as compared to the project plant. As the project activity employs a boiler of higher efficiency and generates additional power as compared to the baseline scenario, it aids in mitigation of GHG emissions. The annual emission reductions from the project are 64,480 tCO2e.
