Carbon Masters India Pvt. Ltd was established in 2012 in Bangalore, and is a pioneer in providing solutions that reduce the risks of climate change. In Doddaballapur, Karnataka, Carbon Masters currently operates a 10-ton biogas plant, which is a waste disposal destination for 10,000 apartments in Bangalore. The company is also setting up a 40-ton plant in Malur, Karnataka, in collaboration with Mahindra & Mahindra.
These plants produce Carbonlites Cylinders – India’s first branded bottled Bio-CNG. Carbonlites can displace LPG for commercial cooking, but can also be used as fuel for vehicles or to run power generators. Carbonlites is a renewable natural gas that burns longer and stronger than LPG providing a cooking performance that is preferred by chefs.
Carbon Masters have developed bespoke infrastructure e.g piping, unique cascades with 2-4 cylinders, pressure reducing systems, and burners that can make the changeover from LPG to Carbonlites both safe and simple to do. Our users report total in-use cost savings of 10% after switching over to Carbonlites. What’s more, unlike LPG, it’s carbon-neutral in use.
Carbonlites in a box is another innovation. It’s a fully functioning biogas plant housed inside refurbished shipping containers. It’s completely customizable and can process organic waste streams from 500kgs to 5 tons and produce up to 250kgs of Carbonlites (equivalent to its weight in LPG) per day. It could also produce 10,000 litres of liquid fertilizer. It does all this in just a one-third of the space occupied by a conventional biogas plant.
Carbonlites represents carbon mitigation in a bottle and a box - by not sending organic waste to landfills, it avoids methane emissions; by processing waste on-site, it avoids diesel emissions from pick-up trucks; and by producing Carbonlites bioCNG, it displaces LPG, further reducing emissions while also saves rising pick-up charges and LPG costs. Its clean energy for a clean India.
