NTPC floats tender to buy machinery to convert farm waste into power

NTPC Ltd has floated a tender to buy plant and machinery to convert farm waste into pellets that will ultimately be blended with coal to produce power.

The company seeks to identify vendors for supply and installation of plant and machinery for torrifaction of farm residue and manufacturing of pellets.  Torrifaction is a process in which biomass is subjected to high temperature in absence of oxygen to convert it into a coal-like material.

NTPC aims to replace coal with secondary fuel such as paddy straw and other farm waste-based briquettes and pellets to the extent of 5 percent to 10 percent of daily consumption at plants wherever this machinery can be installed.
