About the training
India’s agricultural sector plays a vital role in the country’s economy, employing millions of people. It is characterized by diverse crops, including rice, wheat, cotton, and sugarcane. Challenges like fragmented land holdings, water scarcity, and outdated practices persist, but efforts are being made to promote sustainable farming and increase productivity.
Northern India faces significant challenges regarding agricultural waste management. Crop residue burning, primarily after the rice harvest, contributes to severe air pollution and health hazards.
Bio Trend Energy Pvt Ltd here decided to apply creative & sustainable solution for agri waste management. In association with HPCL farmers are trained in Biomass residue aggregation so that they don’t burn their agri-waste rather can turn it into a earning source to them.
Also, some farmers are trained in Depot operation of Biomass so that farmers don’t have to hassle in order to sell their agri waste. These depot purchase biomass from farmers & sell to the companies like HPCL directly.

At the same time it is tremendously helpfull in reducing air pollution caused in North India region by burning of agriclutural waste.
