  23. 23. Servals TLUD Gasifier Stove - A “Pay Back” Profile - <ul><li>The TLUD offers two kinds of tangible, measurable, monetary “returns” to the User </li></ul><ul><ul><li>There will be at least Rs 95 – Rs100 saving in cooking fuel every month for a household of 5. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>A family of 5 needs to pay around Rs. 315 per month while using traditional three-stone stoves (Rs.10.5 per day –> 3 .5kgs* Rs 3 per kg). This stove design is at least 30% more efficient than three stone stoves, hence saving of Rs. 95 per month. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>There will be at least Rs 100 generation when the household figures out how to monetize the biochar residue from the TLUD </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Approximately 125 gms of charcoal is generated during every cooking session. 125 gms * 2 cooking sessions every day *30 days in a month   = 15 kg. The price per Kg of charcoal in India is approximately INR. 5-7. This means, theoretically speaking,  each household/small caterers/meal centers can generate 15 kg of charcoal every month. This can be valued at Rs. 75-100 per month. This means, that every household can finance the cost of cooking fuel for more than an entire month, by selling the residue </li></ul></ul></ul>At least Rs. 200 per month

  29. 29. Some Notable Mentions <ul><li>TLUD - Winner of the prestigious Sankalp 2010 award in the “Clean Energy Sector” </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Sankalp is India’s largest social enterprise and investment forum. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Recognizes India’s top 10 highly investment worthy and innovative social enterprises in 5 key growth areas. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Charcoal is the residue of every cooking session. Has commercial applications –agarbatti, compost, water filtration </li></ul><ul><li>Biochar - eligible for CDM benefits. </li></ul><ul><li>Servals is working towards evaluating the carbon finance eligibility for the TLUD biomass stoves. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Environmental Resources Group, United Kingdom – a leading global environmental consultancy, is preparing the report. </li></ul></ul>
  30. 30. The “Biochar” Perspective <ul><li>Charcoal is the residue of every cooking session. </li></ul><ul><li>Appr 125 gms of charcoal per canister; 125 gms * 2 cooking sessions every day *30 days in a month   = 15 kg of biochar </li></ul><ul><li>Has commercial applications - incense stick making, biofertilizer or briquetting etc.  </li></ul><ul><li>The price per Kg of charcoal in India is approximately INR. 5 - 7. </li></ul><ul><li>Theoretically speaking,  each user generates at Rs. 75 - 100 per month. Almost the cost of cooking fuel for more than an entire month, by selling the residue from the TLUDs. </li></ul><ul><li>It is possible to conceptualize and implement a system by which all the charcoal from a community is collected periodically; It will result in a fairly large collection of charcoal. </li></ul>
  31. 31. The “Biochar” Perspective <ul><li>Heating values of chars are comparable with those of lignite and coke. </li></ul><ul><li>Can be used to fuel charcoal fuelled cookstoves i.e tandoori ovens etc </li></ul><ul><li>Can be used for making activated carbon if the fuel is all from one source </li></ul><ul><li>Can be used as fertilizer ; for composting </li></ul><ul><li>Can be sold to companies that make agarbattis, cigars etc </li></ul><ul><li>Depends on the local demand </li></ul>
  32. 32. The “Biochar” Math <ul><li>Here’s a quick math : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>1000 households; generating appr 15 kg of charcoal every month; total 15,000 kg of charcoal; valued @ Rs5 per kg; Rs.75,000 per month. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>If the cost of collecting the charcoal (salary, cycle cart, bins, storage and transport to warehouse etc) is Rs20,000 every month the returns are Rs.55,000 worth of charcoal every month. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>That would mean each month a 3 year payback for 1000 stoves; at 25 – 30 TLUDs every month. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The life of the stove would be 7 years; a conservative estimate. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>  </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Benefits for the Stove Sponsor : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>15,000 kgs of charcoal every month. Rs 55,000 worth of raw material. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A 33%  return on their investment. Rs20 lakhs will be their total investment in 1000 stoves; Rs.6.5 lakhs per year is their return ( @Rs55,000 per month). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Creating new jobs in the community. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Promoting green cooking, reduce pollution, saving in firewood, enhancing quality of life of the households etc. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The “fuel” expenses to the household will be substantially reduced; almost by 50% </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Tying up the charcoal prices with the households for 7 years? So ensuring stability in raw material prices? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Can report this investment under their “sustainability reporting” which seems to be becoming a mandatory practice in the international circles. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
