Electricity from stubble: a TERI Innovation

Agricultural scientists from The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), New Delhi have an exemplary technological solution for the issue of stubble burning. Scientists believe that the stubble can be collected, and used for producing electricity at the village level.

The produced electricity can then be used for the maintenance of cold storage units across the village. This would serve twin purposes, the first of combating air pollution and the other of producing electricity using biomass. It can further promote practices such as Horticulture as well. Horticulture is an expensive practice and requires cold storage, but using this model of sustainable agriculture, horticulture can be made cheaper and help in further fruit production.
