In India, IIEC is working on an EPA-funded project, titled “Assessment of the Potential to Capture Methane from Distillery and Winery Waste in India” to carry out a market assessment study of the distillery and wineries industry. The study will focus on the wastewater treatment equipment and processes and the methane capture potential from the sector. During this phase, IIEC will initiate grouping of the process experts with the industry leaders in order to define a longer-term collaboration for evolving Indian AgStar program for distilleries and wineries.

 

The IIEC project team will map the wastewater treatment technologies relevant to Indian distilleries and wineries vis-à-vis international best practices. IIEC also will assess the feasibility and options to develop an institutional home that is credible from the perspective of partnership between financial institutions, distillery/winery owners and their associations and government departments responsible for monitoring of wastewater discharge. Finally, IIEC will define capacity building modules targeted at bio-methanation and related processes to be conducted by other institutions in India.
