GREEN ENERGY INITIATIVE
Demonstration of Biomass to Electricity at Technology Complex
A part of the Technology Complex of IIT Guwahati has been brought under electrification with a biomass to electricity conversion technique since September 2, 2014. An existing laboratory level biomass gasifier has been modified to pilot level by a group of PhD students, namely, Gajanan Shelke, Phuy Phuy Thant and Debarshi Mallick under the tutelage of Prof. Pinakeswar Mahanta (ME) to generate 5 kWe power. Presently, 2.5 kWe power is utilized to provide lights to one laboratory and the corridors of one of the blocks of the Technology Complex. Solid and loose biomass of the campus will be used to produce the green energy.
