Organic Waste causes significant emissions, especially of more potent gases than CO2. Mahindra WTE Solutions Limited has constructed 4 facilities (1 in Maharashtra; 3 in Andhra Pradesh) across India to convert organic waste through anaerobic digestion into biogas, as well as organic or bio manure as a by-product. The manure is an excellent fertiliser, and has agricultural end-uses besides improving soil quality.
The facilities cumulatively can process 110 tonnes of organic waste per day into energy. The types of organic waste used as raw materials include agricultural residue, food, fruit, and vegetable waste, animal waste, municipal waste etc.
Mahindra Waste To Energy Solutions Limited, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Mahindra & Mahindra Limited, and almost exclusively focuses on producing and positioning biogas as a clean and environmentally friendly alternative to fossil fuels.
