swatanter kumar justice national green tribune Honourable Justice Shri Swatanter Kumar Kindly Clarify

That Punjab farmers burning straws of rice and wheat, a left over residue in fields after harvest could be prevented and a satisfactory solution is already available in India, by the use of a wonderful new pathway/technology validated in pilot plant trials at Panjab University, Chandigarh, where yields of 300 litres of Cellulosic ethanol were established of being extracted from a feedstock of one metric tonne of rice/wheat straws, depending upon the harvest season kharif or rabi?

That this Cellulosic ethanol, so called because it is derived from the two types of celluloses present in straws – alpha/hemi celluloses is an excellent substitute for petrol or diesel and therefore capable of reducing global warming and  also preventing smog in winter in North India.

That the techno commercial feasibility study based on detailed data derived from pilot plant studies has established beyond any reasonable reason to doubt the use and value of this technology in National Interests as a major clean Renewable Energy Biofuel which the world recognizes as one of the possible solutions for environmental remediation, global warming abatement and so on.

That the feasibility study shows that this Cellulosic ethanol can be produced economically in India without import of any technology, equipments needed to make it a reality? Large scale use of this technology and putting to better use more than 64 million tonnes of rice, wheat straws, rice husk (based on All India primary survey by MNRE, GOI in 2004), would help India drastically reduce its import costs for crude oil, improve its bargaining position in global economy and environmental negotiations with powerful countries whose global policies are being dictated by vested interests in their own countries?

I am sharing this information in public interest. I do not have the resources to fight legal battles.
