Warana Bio-CNG Project
District of Kolhapur, Maharashtra India
In partnership with one of Maharashtra’s largest sugarcane cooperatives, Warana Sugarcane Cooperative, Spectrum is developing a first-of-a-kind project that will convert a sugarcane waste called pressmud (filtercake) into renewable Bio-CNG and organic fertilizer. The Bio-CNG is a clean and inexpensive fuel that will be used in the cooperatives’ trucking fleet or sold in the local market, and the nutrient-rich organic fertilizer will be used by the cooperatives’ sugarcane farmers or sold in the local market.
- Daily capacity of approximately 100 tons, or 35,000 annual tons, of sugarcane waste (pressmud)
- Daily production of approximately 8000 kg’s of Bio-CNG per day
- Daily production of approximately 75 tons of organic fertilizer per day
- Substantial cost savings due to low-cost Bio-CNG use
- Climate friendly – CO2 negative: Biogas-to-CNG conversation is the most productive use of agricultural waste
