Every year, large amounts of rice straw are burned on open fields in northern India, sending harmful air pollution to nearby New Delhi. 

Every year, large amounts of rice straw are burned on open fields in northern India, sending harmful air pollution to nearby New Delhi.

BWSC is contributing to two biomass-fired power plants being built in northern India.

In February, BWSC entered an agreement with a local EPC constructor, Isgec Heavy Engineering, who will design, produce and build the power plant’s boilers and then supply the plants to India’s rice producers.

The biomass-fired power plants are designed to burn leftover straw from the region’s rice production, which is traditionally burned in the open to prepare fields for next year’s crop.

Burning the straw on open fields contributes to crippling smog conditions and releases microparticles that affect the health of tens of millions of people living in New Delhi and the surrounding area.
