It is a matter of greatest pride for me that I have done my project work from United Spirits Limited Rosa, Shahjahanpur (UP), a part of world famous UB Group. This work of mine is the result of my concern regarding the biggest challenge facing all over the world i.e. industrial waste like spent wash

I want to share my deepest gratitude to Mr. Devender Saxena Manager Personnel Management, United Spirits Limited Rosa, who allowed me to do my project work, and gave proper information about the industry.

I am very much thankful to Mr. D.S. Yadav Senior Process Manager, United Spirits

In 1806 William Henry showed that Volta’s gas was identical with methane gas was identical with methane gas. Humphrey Davy in the early 1800’s observed that methane was present in farmyard manure pieces. In 1808 Davy conducted the first laboratory experiment to produce methane by anaerobic fermentation was wasted. In the initial periods anaerobic fermentation was carried out mainly as a municipal waste treatment process and energy recovery has not of primary concern. In 1895 biogas from a waste treatment plant in extra. In England was collected and use to light nearly streets….


The wastewater from distillation process has high organic content, which has to be treated to bring down the levels of COD and BOD to prescribed standards of environmental authorities. In this study, the organic wastewater from distillery also known as spent wash is treated by closed anaerobic reactors to recover methane rich biogas and utilize the methane as fuel to generate steam and electricity. Up flow Anaerobic Sludge Blanket (UASB) type of anaerobic reactors is employed in the project activity. The greenhouse gases (GHG) emission reductions due to recovery of methane and displacement of fossil fuel by generation of steam and electricity utilizing the biogas generated are considered as emission reductions of the project activity. The analyses are conducted based on using the methodology of
