Update: Power for Padarwadi, and Beyond

The news is good from Padarwadi, but there have been some difficult times, too.

It’s been more than two years since the tiny village in India, accessible only by foot, received a generator converted by engineers at Cummins India to run on oil from a local seed.

The generator powered a small mill to husk the rice that village residents grew so they didn’t have to make hundreds of trips to the nearest town. That town is more than seven miles away round-trip, through mountainous terrain.

Cummins Turns Landfill Gas Into Power for Delaware Customers

Construction started earlier this summer on a first of its kind project for Cummins that will use landfill gas and the Company’s combined heat and power (CHP) systems to provide industrial customers in Delaware with a clean, sustainable source of energy.

The first recipient will be Croda Inc.’s Atlas Point chemical manufacturing plant in New Castle, Del. Croda, a global company with operations in 33 countries, estimates the project will provide enough energy to cover about 55 percent of its operations at Atlas Point.
