Bio - gas from Willow Dust

Description and salient Technical features

Cotton Textile Mills generate about 80,000 to 85,000 tonnes of solid cellulosic wastes popularly known as willow-dust and cyclone dust. These waste materials are rich in cellulose and hence suitable for biogas production. CIRCOT has therefore developed methods for producing biogas using these materials both by a (i) batch fermentation process and a (ii) semi continuous fermentation process.
