WBA Webinar 1 - Agricultural residues to energy

Agriculture residues are one of the most abundantly available resource worldwide as millions of tons of husk, straw etc. are produced globally which are either left to rot or burned on the fields. Efficient utilization of these residues to produce heat, electricity and biofuels offer various advantages including replacing fossil fuel use, reducing emissions, and promoting local economic development. However, various technological, social and policy challenges hinder the progress of the sector.

In this regard, WBA organized a webinar focussed on the latest combustion technologies available in currently operational commercial facilities worldwide. The webinar highlighted the latest technological developments in thermal conversion of agricultural residues to energy. Speakers from around the world showcased success stories along with opportunities and challenges for development of the sector.
