India's largest power producer, NTPC Limited has invited bids for procurement of biomass pellets for its various thermal plants as part of its endeavour to reduce burning of crop residue on farmlands that cause air pollution.
The power producer has envisaged consumption of five million tonnes of pellets in the current year at its 17 power plants including NTPC Korba, (Chhattisgarh), NTPC Farakka, (West Bengal), NTPC Dadri (Uttar Pradesh), NTPC Kudgi (Karnataka) and NTPC Rihand (Uttar Pradesh).
In a statement, NTPC Limited said, it had first undertaken this unique initiative on pilot basis in 2017 for biomass co-firing by replacing some of the coal with pellet based fuel at NTPC Dadri, Uttar Pradesh. 

Post successful implementation, NTPC now plans to replicate the model in 17 of its state of the art plants.
NTPC is confident that co-firing will help create large scale rural employment opportunities in processing as well as supply chain for biomass.

The power producer will give preference to bids from suppliers from Punjab and Haryana.
