    Rochem, Mumbai (INDIA) group of companies in India & abroad, is engaged in waste to energy solutions on industrial scale using its own technology of thermal pyrolytic gasification. A video presentation was given to Mme. Sarah Carter in this very workshop at ARTI illustrating pilot plant set up at Vasai (near Mumbai, India) which demonstrates Biochar production from industrial & municipal solid waste (MSW). Apart from Biochar the unit also produces SYNGAS (mixture of CO & H2) which is used as fuel to produce electricity. A unit at Pune to dispose 700MT/day of MSW is being set up to produce 10MW power & 10MT/day Biochar. This will be operational in March 2011. Many such units will be set up in future. Dr. Modak
