NXT TRADE India supports the start of Biomass Wood Pellet production in the Jammu and Kashmir regions
NXT TRADE India has closed new project agreements for the deployment of Biomass Pellet Installations from the CPM Global Biomass Group in the Jammu and Kashmir territory.
Kashmir is the northernmost geographical region of the Indian subcontinent. It is one of the energy-starved territories despite having tremendous potential for the utilization of renewable energy. Natural energy sources include biomass and biological wastes. They are not harnessed at the moment, resulting in a very low per capita energy availability. Numerous people in rural and urban areas still rely on wood fuel to meet their primary energy needs such as cooking and heating, resulting in deforestation.
The biomass pellet mill, with a capacity of 2 tonnages per hour (tph), is the first professional pellet mill in the Jammu and Kashmir territory. It will be built in Srinagar, the largest city and the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir. It is the northernmost city of India to have over one million people.
Jammu and Kashmir are one of the coldest regions in India, with frost and snow, and sub-zero night temperatures across the region that can drop to minus 6 degrees Celsius in Srinagar. The production of the pellets will activate a whole new segment for domestic heating purposes.
CPM Global Biomass Group and NXT TRADE India partnered in 2019 and were the early movers in the Indian biomass market. Today the CPM Global Biomass Group presence in India is steadily developing and NXT TRADE launched a new set of services for Indian biomass equipment buyers in 2021, whereas in 2022 CPM equipment users activate in Biomass production can count on NXT India for technical support including maintenance service, spare & wear parts supply, and support in growing, improving and distributing their production output.
