Establishment of a National Mission on use of Biomass

Recently, the Union Ministry of Power has proposed to set up a National Mission on Use of Biomass on the use of biomass in coal-fired thermal power plants. By this decision, the problem of air pollution caused by burning stubble in the fields will be solved.

National Mission on use of Biomass

  • This mission will reduce the carbon footprints of thermal power generation. This will help in energy conversion across the country and will help in fulfilling the objective of establishing a clean energy source.
  • To achieve higher carbon-neutral power generation from thermal power plants, the co-firing level will be increased from the present 5% to a higher level.
  • To facilitate overcoming the constraints in supply chain of bio mass pellets and agro- residue and its transport up to the power plants.
  • It will consider regulatory issues in biomass ‘co-firing’. This mission will also contribute to the National Clean Air Program.

Steering Committee

  • The mission will be run by a Steering Committee under the chairmanship of the Energy Secretary, in addition to all stakeholders, representatives from the petroleum and new and renewable energy ministries.

National Clean Air Program (NCAP)

  • The National Clean Air Program was launched by the government to tackle the problem of air pollution across India. The National Clean Air Program will attempt to achieve a 20% to 30% reduction in particulate matter concentrations by the year
