Fixed Improved Charring Kiln (FICR) and Moveable Improved Charring Kiln (MICK)
Charring Retort is a technology for production of charcoal. We promote Fixed and Moveable types of retorts for industrial scale char production. For FICR, technology operates through biomass heating using endothermic process followed by exothermic process, while for MICK, technology operates through direct combustion.

Major advantages of our ICR:
  • Increase in charcoal production output by 3 folds compared to the traditional pit system prevalent in Nepal
  • Reduces CO emission by 70% and improves occupational health status of charcoal producers
  • Allows rapid cooling of charcoal thereby reducing production cycle to one day as compared to seven days in traditional pit system.

Services offered by us:

  • Design, development and dissemination of highly-efficient & low-emission charring technology
  • Awareness and local capacity strengthening for dissemination
Application of Char as an alternative fuel in brick kilns
Char is a non-timber woody biomass-based carbonized renewable fuel, which is produced using forest residue as a part of the annual cleaning up campaign for sustainable forest management practice. It can be utilized as an internal fuel, substituting imported coal to fire in brick kilns. This way  producers do not have to compress to make beehive briquettes. Char dust promotion will contribute to the reduction of total production cost, thereby increasing the profit margin.

More than 143,000 community Forest Users Groups (CFUGs), 40% of total households of Nepal, now own and manage community forests in 122,000-hectare land. The forest residue coming out of this huge area has great potential to replace imported coal for brick kilns.

From an environmental point of view, if char replaces coal in brick firing, there is a much higher potential to reduce SO2 and the Total Suspended Particles (TSP) from brick kilns.

Services offered by us:

  • Resource based analysis and quantification of forest waste potential from existing community forests
  • Applied R&D and piloting of the improved char producing furnace (with at least 15% higher efficiency)
  • Construction and training to local people on improving char production
  • Piloting of business model to establish backward and forward linkage of char and create value chain for forest waste

We won the "Best Innovative Clean Energy Technology" award for this concept during the Asia Clean Energy Forum on June 2009 in Manila, Philippines.

Biogas
Biogas is a proven technology for solid waste management and has been extensively used in waste-to-energy system. The major composition of biogas is CH4, CO2, H2S and others. The system has two major outputs, combustible gas and quality fertilizer as slurry. We are pre-qualified to perform feasibility and detail feasibility of large biogas plant as well as construction of the plant in Nepal.

  • Multiple end-use applications include heat, electricity generation, combined heat and power
  • Very efficient decomposition, nutrient recovery and recycle

Services offered by us:

  • Feasibility and detail feasibility study for biogas installation
  • Biogas Plant design for household and commercial models
  • Construction for institutions, communities, commercial and industrial sectors
Solar PV and Solar Thermal Technology
Solar Photovoltaic and the Solar Thermal technologies are based on solar energy, which is available free of cost. Solar PV is for electricity generation while solar thermal technology is more for thermal processing sector for various types of products in industries.
