ESTIMATION OF POWER GENERATION POTENTIAL OF AGRICULTURAL BASED BIOMASS SPECIES AND COAL- BIOMASS MIXED BRIQUETTES  [pp 01-06]

Mishra Mukesh Kumar , Kulshrestha Anurag
Abstract – With the advancement in technology the power consumption is rising steadily. This necessitates that in addition to the existing source of power such as coal, water, petroleum etc. Other sources of energy should be searched out and new and more efficient ways of producing energy should be devised. Power generation from biomass becomes attractive way for energy generation due to their high energy potential and less pollutants.  This study reviews the estimation of power generation potential of biomass species and coal-biomass as well as the future importance of biomass power generation. This study aims to estimate the potential of biomass power generation and its impact on power generation expansion planning as well as mitigating carbon ….
