Energy Efficient Rural Jaggery System

An innovative energy-efficient 3-pan Jaggery Furnace and matching Crusher have been developed catering to Jaggery-makers in this largest sugarcane producing area of the country where Jaggery furnaces operate round the clock from roughly October to March. The furnace has completely re-designed internal geometry, different construction and uses strategically placed refractory bricks. CTD’s Furnace delivers 22% saving of the bagasse used as fuel, which is then sold to cardboard manufacturing units in the area. Cost of the Furnace is recovered in one season itself, and Jaggery-makers earn an additional Rs.1 lakh per year. 

Through a separate Project supported by UNDP-GEF Small Grants Programme, 70 such Furnaces have been installed in West UP, with additional innovations such as a 4-Pan System using sugarcane leaves as fuel.
