Hyderabad: Solika Energy, a compressed biogas company backed by Srinivasa Hatcheries, announced the opening of its first poultry litter based Compressed Biogas (CBG) Project at Udityal Village, near Balanagar, Telangana.
Opened recently, this 2.4 tonnes per day capacity compressed biogas (CBG) project exclusively uses poultry litter as the raw material. It is located next to a large commercial poultry farm with over 4.5 lakh birds where the raw material from the poultry sheds will be collected to generate biogas.
Built by Solika under the Sustainable Alternative Towards Affordable Transportation (SATAT) scheme by the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas (MoPNG). The CBG produced in this project will be supplied to an IOCL outlet in Attapur, Hyderabad. Commercial sale at this outlet is expected to start from next month. In addition to CBG, this plant will also generate around 15 tonnes of good quality organic manure as a byproduct on a daily basis.
Suresh Chitturi, IEC CMD, Srinivasa Farms Group said, “Solika has developed a unique process of ammonia reduction which results in sustained reuse of water making the biogas plant zero liquid discharge. The unique process removes and reduces all impurities like feathers, stones, sand, and also reduces high ammoniacal nitrogen with a help of biological culture and at the same time providing a unique solution to the poultry community.”
Solika is also currently in the process of setting up the second CBG project in Telangana. This project is expected to have a CBG production capacity of 3 tonnes per day.
