Our Operations
Large- and mid-scale plants:
Green Elephant has set up its first large scale biogas plant in India’s sugar belt at Satara District in Maharashtra in November 2010, where it consumes approximately 200,000 m³ of organic sugarcane waste per annum and generates approximately 8 million m³ of gas per annum. Green Elephant is currently developing and investing three additional plants in India and intends to build a pipeline of six additional large scale plants in 2012.

Green Elephant has set up two mid-scale biogas plants for the Pune Municipal Corporation in Pune and in 2011 Green Elephant is building two new plants. The mid-scale biogas plants are using five to ten tons of organic waste per day which is taken from canteens, hotels, restaurants and private households in Pune. The plant converts the waste via anaerobic digestion to biogas, which is further converted into electricity.

The GreenBox™
Green Elephant has set up its first standardized and pre-fabricated biogas plant – the GreenBox™ - in Mumbai in September 2011. The GreenBox™ is a mini power plant, offering the facility to process organic waste to clean gas. The plant converts the waste via anaerobic digestion to biogas, which is further used as a cooking fuel in the colony by residents. The GreenBox™ is engineered as a state of the art product in regard to design, functionality and performance. The GreenBox™ is build by Green Elephant in Pune and is quickly to install. It is simple to operate and is expected to change the concept of how waste is currently managed in India.

Green Elephant intends to promote the GreenBox™ in various sizes throughout Asia, Africa and Europe.
