A well-established cold chain and agro-based industry operates in Gurgaon, India, with factory units in Himachal Pradesh. The company previously relied on diesel-fired hot water  generator for its heat requirement. The company transitioned to biomass to reduce its dependence on fossil fuels. Steamax converted their diesel fired system with the OBR Kit. This change aligns with the company’s commitment to sustainability and environmental responsibility. Let’s see how the company transitions from diesel to biomass.


Fuel Cost Analysis

  1. Initially, the company utilised 6,000 litres of diesel per month at INR 90 per litre, totalling INR 5,40,000 per month.
  2. Conversely, with Astillas, the unit price is INR 20 per kg, resulting in a monthly fuel bill of INR 2,93,020.
  3. Thus, Astillas reduces the monthly fuel bill by INR 2,46,980 due to its higher calorific value and lower cost per unit.
  4. Astillas offers significant monthly savings, making it a more cost-effective fuel choice.
