Sustainable livelihood project , creating jobs and clean cooking fuel pellets

Associated Organization: Nishant Bioenergy P Ltd

I take this opportunity to introduce my company  Nishant Bioenergy P ltd (NB), India.  NB is pioneer company conceiving , designing, manufacturing Biomass Fuel Pellet Plant, Pellet Fueled Cook Stoves for bigger kitchens. We sell these technologies to local franchisee ( producing pellets and supplying to stove user in their territory).

We are in this domain since 1999 and won ASHDEN Award in 2005 and PCRA AWARD in 2000. Presently we are establishing GSCDM project and ERPA signed with myclimate, Switzerland.

( ). We have patent pending stove designs ( 2015 launch). We have Two designs. 

Themes: Energy, Poverty and vulnerability

Regions: Africa

Countries: Algeria, Angola, Benin, Botswana, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, Cape Verde, Central African Republic, Chad, Comoros, Congo, Congo, DRC, Côte d'Ivoire, Djibouti, Egypt, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Gabon, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Kenya, Lesotho, Liberia, Libya, Madagascar, Malawi, Mali, Mauritania, Mauritius, Mayotte, Morocco, Mozambique, Namibia, Niger, Nigeria, Rwanda, Sao Tome and Principe, Senegal, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, Somalia, South Africa, Sudan, Swaziland, Tanzania, Togo, Tunisia, Uganda, Western Sahara, Zambia, Zimbabwe

We have already supplied pellet plants in following Indian sates, Orissa, Haryana, Gujarat, Chhattisgarh, Himachal, Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, UP.

We are also going to export Nepal’s first Pellet Plant + Pellet Fueled Stove project ,  funded by UNDP, GEF. 

In India, we provide complete knowhow and  technologies to establish Pellet making and Pellet Stove business under exclusive franchisee  model ( called Green Enterprises) in India. For outside India we can provide complete know how on turkey basis. Our   technologies / business model  is  very much relevant with MDG i.e.  creation of  employment , enterprises as well as becoming carbon neutral.  In our business model franchisee (GREEN ENTERPRISE)  installs our pellet plant and stoves in his exclusive territory and supply the pellet on demand. Cost of setting up of one such franchisee (250 kgs/hr) is approx USD 20K , excluding stoves) this plant can use all type of biomass except stalky materials ) and payback is less than 2 years, saves more than 1000 tons of CO2 and employment for  3-4 people. Area required is minimum 1500 sq feet and power 50 Kw.  

Videos of our technologies are avilable at following links:   250 Kgs/hr pellet plant.

 We see that there is good potential in Africa for replicating our technologies and business knowhow creating livelihood and carbon neutral fuel as well as end consumers will save 50% in fuel cost. Let us know your view and comments on this.
