Technological Prospects Of Electricity Self Sufficiency At Rice Mill Community Through Rice Husk Gasification: A Case Study For Belcon Company Ltd.
The study was conducted to find out technological prospects of electricity
generation by gasification of extra rice husk at an automatic rice mill with crushing capacity 150
tonnes per day in Naogaon District of Bangladesh. Using 14 tonnes of excess rice husk at studied
mill, 470 KW electrical power generation capacity achievement is possible through rated 470
KW rice husk gasifier in combination with dual fuel internal combustion engine. For 10 years
project lifetime, considering 350 days yearly operation, the plant can generate 39.48 GWh
electricity and cumulative CO2 emission reduction through this project will be 12236 tonnes.
Moreover, surplus power can be sold to local community for community development and
thereby considerable revenue earning is possible.
