What we do l.jpg

What we do?

At Ankur Scientific we are engaged in

Research, Development and Commercialization of

Biomass to Energy equipment.

  • Ankur is today seen as a world leader in the field of Biomass Gasification.

  • Both Wet and Dry fermentation technologies are offered to convert various biomasses to Biogas.

Gasification l.jpg


What is biomass gasification l.jpg

What is Biomass Gasification?

Basic Process Chemistry

  • Conversion of solid fuels into combustible gas mixture called producer gas (CO + H2 + CH4)

  • Involves partial combustion of biomass

  • Four distinct process in the gasifier viz.

    • Drying

    • Pyrolysis

    • Combustion

    • Reduction

Environmental aspects l.jpg

Environmental Aspects

Used in re-circulation mode with zero discharge. Occasional ph adjustment and simple treatment may be needed.



Gasifier does not release gas to the atmosphere. Combustion in user equipments (connected to gasifier) is much cleaner compared to liquid fuels.


Environmental aspects contd l.jpg

Environmental Aspects(contd.)

Charcoal can be sold as fuel.

Biological ash can be returned to the soil.

Solid Waste


In case of major user equipment i.e. genset, noise level is lower than with 100% liquid fuels.


Biomass materials contain negligible Sulphur

Biogas l.jpg


What is a biogas plant l.jpg

What is a Biogas Plant

  • Basically Methane & CO2 Gas Producer.

  • Methane – Odorless, Colorless, Good Calorific Value, Green House Gas

  • Sources : Animal Manures, excreta, kitchen waste, Industrial Chemical Processes, Sea Water Bed, etc.

  • Animal Manure & Excreta contributes around 16 % of the total global methane emission.

Biogas plants offered l.jpg

Biogas Plants Offered

Ankur Scientific offers plants on the following feeds :

  • Cattle dung based

  • Kitchen waste based

  • Vegetables & fruit waste based

  • Dry Crop residues based

  • Organic effluent based

Benefits of biogas plants l.jpg

Benefits of Biogas Plants

  • Contributes substantially in reducing Global Warming.

  • Cost effective replacement for Fossil Fuels.

  • This Smoke Free gas emits less carbon dioxide as compared to other fuels.

  • A very efficient and environmentally friendly solution for disposing off various organic matter.

Biogas plants reduction in global warming l.jpg

Biogas Plants – Reduction in Global Warming


  • Contributes largely in Global Warming

  • Traps 21 times more heat than CO2

  • Over the 100 years – 25 times more temperature impact than that by CO2


    Biogas Plant  Traps Methane 

    Fuel  Carbon Dioxide.
