Pirul briquetting unit will be set up in Champawat

Advanced stove will reduce pollution by 70 percent, Pirul is necessary for environmental protection
The technology of making fuel from Pirul has been invented by the Indian Institute of Petroleum (IIP) and Uttarakhand State Council of Science and Technology (UCAST) will implement this technology. On the basis of this technology, Pirul based briquetting (brick-like fuel block) unit will be installed in Champawat.
An agreement was signed between IIP and UCAST on Wednesday to install the unit. UCAST Director General Prof. signed the agreement at UCAST’s Jhajhra office. Signed by Durgesh Pant and IIP Director Dr. Harendra Singh Bisht.
On this occasion UCAST Director General Prof. Pant said that work on the Adarsh Champawat project is being done under the leadership of Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami. Therefore, in this direction, it has been decided to implement two major technologies based on science and technology in Champawat. In which Pyrule based briquetting unit with 50 kg per hour capacity will be established.
500 advanced stoves running on briquettes will be used in rural homes for energy conservation and environment protection. This briquetting unit will be established in the Energy Park to be built in Champawat under the Women Empowerment Project. Also, briquettes will be used as fuel in homes and industries.
In the program, IIP Director Dr. Harendra Singh Bisht said that management of Pirul is necessary for environmental protection and preventing forest fires. This kind of project can prove effective in this work.
